Thoppil joppan narrates the story of a Middle aged Bachelor Joppan who’s life is all about having alcohol and enjoying with friends.

His mother, friends and all the people try him to get married but he refuses and the story follows on some incidents happening in their life.


On to the Technical side, Nishad Koya’s script were many flaws including the lagging and also the way of narration weren’t upto the mark.

Music composed by Vidya Sagar were really below average but the Background score were very much apt to the scenes. Cinematography were cool while the edits too were nice. All together, Johny anthony had executed this movie as a simple comedy entertainer. but lack of a good story and a strong screenplay has effected the movie very well and made it just an one time watachble flick.


On to the Performance, Mammukka were nice and done his part well. But to be frank, the movie havn’t much to showcase as a ‘Achayan’ for Mammotty rather than a few scenes.  Andrea had nothing to do and she had only a couple of scenes.  Mamtha Mohandas had really performed well with a lot of energy and enthuism.

Alancier, Saju Navodaya, Sohanlal, Sreejith Ravi as friends of Joppan were nice and funny. Among them Saju Navodaya scored a bit more. Jude anthony’s  character as thomas kutty was nice.  it was really great to see Saleem Kumar in screen with a comedy character after a long time. He had done his part really nice. kaviyoor ponnamma,  renji panicker,  harisree ashokan,  arya,  Kottayam Pradeep also supported well. There were many other character actors too in the movie for only a couple of scenes.

If the movie had a worth storylime and a well written screenplay, the movie could be really nice.

Bottom Line: A family entertainer. The movie has nothing new or more to offer but a simple comedy movie that can be enjoyed by your family and friends.


  • Direction and BGM were good.
  • Cinematography.


  • Cliched storyline and week screenplay.
  • Songs were below average.

Verdict: An Average Comedy Entertainer.

Thirdshows Rating: 2.5/5
