What is the story about?
Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham has Pavithran (Nivin Pauly) and Haripriya (Grace Antony) who are finding themselves in a tough situation with their marriage issues popping up. When Pavithran finds a way to gift her a pair of earrings and take her on a trip, they land up at a hotel where a lot of crazy characters and confusion ensues.
Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham works out as an engaging comic film mainly due to the presence of its star cast which is packed with names such as Nivin, Grace, Vinay Fort, Jaffer Idukki and many more. The film is bent on its one-liners which have enough in them to bring out the laughs instantly and keep the ball rolling. There is no big event or conflict that takes place in the film, but the director Ratheesh keeps the momentum flowing by using his variant and funny characters in the best way. The film’s 2-hour runtime does feel long at places due to some dry patches in the comedy, but there is something to take home at the end of the ride.
Nivin Pauly and Grace Antony give the film what it needs, but it is the supporting cast who actually uphold the film. Vinay Fort is pretty good in his part, while Jaffer Idukki gets some really good scenes and once again proves his might. The film has other actors such as Sudheer Paravoor, Sivadas Kannur and Rajesh Madhavan who contribute well.
