Malaysia to Amnesia, which is the latest Tamil film to directly release on OTT platform Zee 5, is a harmless entertainer that doesn’t cash in on its promising premise. Like most Radha Mohan’s films, Malaysia to Amnesia, too, is a feel-good comedy but one that could’ve been even more entertaining with better writing. By taking a very predictable path of handling the promising premise – of a husband stuck in an uncomfortable situation – the film only works in parts.Malaysia to Amnesia 2021 Movie Download.
Vaibhav plays Arun, a successful owner of a small-scale apparel business. He’s married to Suja (Vani) and they have a daughter. Arun is in an extramarital affair with Riya, and he takes out time every now and then to meet her. One time, Arun tells his family that he’s off to Malaysia on a business trip for four days and goes to Bangalore to meet Riya. But his plan doesn’t go as planned and he gets stuck in an uncomfortable situation.Malaysia to Amnesia 2021 Movie Download.
The situation as a plot point could’ve been explored more effectively. It had the potential to be made into an entertaining comic stretch, but the writing resorts to cliches and it dumbs down the rest of the story. The film relies heavily on MS Bhaskar, the veteran actor-comedian, to do all the weightlifting, and he’s terrific in his role. Vaibhav as Vani plays their respective parts well and click as a couple. Riya Suman has a decent screen presence.Humour, of course, is subjective, and if you are the type to laugh at Viji (Prakash Raj) from Mozhi quipping, “Sir inga irukaaru, andha karapan poochi-a yenga admit panni irukanga?”, this film is your heaven. Regardless of the efficacy, there’s no questioning the sincerity of the joke attempts, with the clever wordplay surely making Crazy Mohan smile from the beyond, and even the slapstick humour feeling organic.The question though is, is efficient humour enough to make this a good film? I am not so sure. If the humour can be said to be in ‘Beast Mode’, the story never rises above ‘Energy Saver Mode’.Malaysia to Amnesia 2021 Movie Download.
