A whole heart in its right place
28 November 2018 | by vjnambuSee all my reviews

Initially, I misunderstood sudani from Nigeria as a cheap comedy film trying to cash on soubin's funny image due to which I was not even bothered to see its trailer but I was terribly wrong when I heard its critical acclaim from all over. I couldn't see it in theatres so I saw it when it released digitally. And I tell you that its the best malayalam movie of the year. It narrates the story of Majeed(soubin) who is the manager of a football team in malapurram district and its star player is Samuel(Samuel abiola Robinson), a Nigerian player. After Samuel suffers a serious injury, circumstances lead majeed to make Samuel stay it his house for bed rest under the care of his mother and her neighbor friend. Rest of the film is how Samuel presence brings a change in majeeds life and how majeed helps samuel in the end. What makes this film a masterpiece are its actors performances(most of them are newcomers except soubin), situational humour, few heart touching moments and the culture of Malabar. After parava and mayanadhi, soubin once again proves his brilliance as an actor. He must not stick to only comedy sidekick roles. Samuel's smile and innocence steal your hearts. Late ktc abdulla gives a touching performance as the step father. Special mention to those lovable ummas. Finally sudani from Nigeria is a best feel good film of the year and my personal favorite.
