Cast performance:

Kunchacko Boban is one of the most famous actors who has been sustaining in the Malayalam Movie Industry from 1997. He entered the industry as a child artist in 1981 itself. He is an asset to the movie, and his performance is outstanding to watch. Anu Sitara as Malini justified the role. Not only with her acting, but she also entertained the viewers with her dancing skills too. Aju Varghese played the role of Shatru in the movie. His light-weighted comedy makes the audience laugh.

Technical Team:

Ranjith Sankar direction is top notch. His way of executing the script is excellent. The locations in the movie are charming to watch. The movie is a feel good, entertaining one. Production values by Dreams N Beyond are magnificent. Music by Bijibal is so beautiful, and the background score is just too good. The music is also a plus point of the movie. Cinematographer Madhu Neelakantan and Editor V. Sajan did their personal best. Though the story is straightforward and sweet, the slow narration makes it kind of boring.

Plus Points:

  • Simple story
  • Visuals and BGM
  • Comedy
  • Cinematography and direction
  • Feel good script

Minus Points:

  • Some scenes in second half
  • Slow pace of story


Ramante Edanthottam is a well executed feel good script with a simple plot and unusual locations. The first half just goes on with comedy and a refreshing story. The second half focuses a fell good story. The story how the two individuals explore themselves and handle their growing relationship is so beautiful to watch.


Ramante Edanthottam is a feel-good story with lovely locations and nice BGM. (2.75/5)
