Utopiayile Rajavu directed by Kamal and penned by P.S Rafeek is a satire comedy entertainer starring Mammootty and Jewel Mary in the lead.
Firstly ‘satire’ means the use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. There is no limitations in criticizing. Where in Utopiya, not only the people speaks but also animals, statues and even dead bodies speaks and the best part is all these are not animated. After the flick Amen P S Rafeek is failed to convey the soul of story to audience. But he tried it in a different way.
Director Kamal have been successful in executing this satirical screenplay well. The work of cinematographer was average and the Music by Ouseppachan had made a mark in the movie especially the promo song ‘Uppinu Pona’. BGM too was above average making the movie more enjoyable.
