The standard old-school romantic drama is partly pleasurable, however misses the spark or sensibility that marked director Girish’s debut movie
When girls’ hostels are portrayed in Malayalam cinema, the gaze usually has been that of an outsider, largely that of a male making an attempt to realize entry to it or looking at it from far-off. In Tremendous Sharanya, no less than in its pleasurable preliminary parts, the gaze is from the within, with the script portraying the bonding between a bunch of younger girls in an engineering faculty. But, for a film which units out with such certain steps, and a seeming intent, the way in which it squanders all of it within the latter half comes as fairly a disappointment.

Sharanya (Anaswara Rajan), a woman of low shallowness arrives at an engineering faculty away from her house, solely to seek out the state of affairs there even worse for somebody like her.

Filmmaker Girish A.D. had made a glowing debut with Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, wherein he confirmed that he has fairly a grasp on how younger individuals suppose and behave. The second outing nearly offers one the sensation that he has begun from the place he left off, with the protagonist Sharanya having a lot in similarity to Jaison from the primary movie. To not neglect, the loopy bunch of buddies round her, particularly Sona (Mamitha Baiju), who is continually exasperated by Sharanya’s naivety.
Initially, Tremendous Sharanya offers us the thought of being a special sort of movie, one wherein the ladies usually are not diminished to being mere love pursuits. The scriptwriter has even created a hilarious caricature of a poisonous man, comparable in appears and behavior to the much-celebrated ‘Arjun Reddy’. The lecturer who always pesters his scholar with a wedding proposal can be not portrayed kindly. But, Sharanya doesn’t have a lot of an id or existence, past that of being the article of need of virtually all of the consequential male characters within the movie. She is even proven falling for Deepu (Arjun Ashokan), who may not be an Arjun Reddy, however is domineering and mindless in his personal method.
Whereas the primary half is sort of pacy, with an excellent dose of humour, the script meanders aimlessly afterward, not even justifying the run-time of 164 minutes. A lot time is spent on Sharanya’s relationship with Deepu, their fixed confusions, fights and patch-ups, that the movie is diminished to being a typical old-school romantic drama, topped by a disappointing climax which appears to have been written to fulfill mainstream cinema compulsions.
Although Tremendous Sharanya is partly pleasurable, it misses the spark or sensibility that marked Girish’s debut movie.
