A brief animation clip that accompanies the identify sequence ofBro Daddy offers a touch of the sort of movie that one is in for. In those little while, packed with a few stale jokes, we are reminded a couple of instances of the very small age gap between John Kattadi (Mohanlal) and his son Eesho John Kattadi (Prithviraj). If that fact did not nonetheless get registered on your head, there is the relaxation of the film where constant reminders of the equal are served.

John and Anna (Meena) had married quite young, and now are eager for his or her son Eesho, an advertising expert, to get married. Eesho in the meantime is in a courting with Anna (Kalyani Priyadarshan), the daughter of John’s first-rate buddy Kurian (Lalu Alex) and Elsy (Kaniha). But what could have been an clean alliance is complex with ‘injuries’ that threaten to derail all their plans.
In his 2d directorial afterLucifer , Prithviraj chooses to scale down his ambition quite a piece to make a mild-hearted own family drama. The script by Sreejith.N and Bibin Maliekal draws on a topic that has been tackled earlier in films likePavithram andBadhaai Ho , however here they try to give it a slightly different packaging. The film appears to be positioned in a social placing where abortion is almost considered a sin, that it appears like a counterpoint to current films likeSara’s , which took a more innovative stand on such issues.
Much of the script is woven across the camaraderie among the daddy-son duo and their attempts to solve the mess. But the movie does no longer have a good deal of a conflict that could make for a gripping narrative, the handiest one being that Kurian should now not come to realize of the ‘accidents’. Almost the whole second 1/2 is written in any such manner as to postpone the inevitable, with most of the scenes being predictable from miles away.
A separate comedy music concerning event supervisor Happy (Soubin Shahir) further drags down the narrative, without coping with any laughs. Mohanlal appears to be greater relaxed and seems to be playing the function, as compared to most of his current outings. Some of the humour concerning him does work, while some different jokes within the movie are tasteless or stale, and fall flat. Quite the various jokes are written across the names of the characters.
Whether by way of layout or by using accident, the aesthetics of the complete film mirrors that of an commercial with its settings in carefully-curated, prim and right top magnificence houses. That one of the protagonists is an marketing expert and a key plot factor is regarding an advertisement, also makes one surprise whether or not all the artificial, curated appearance of the movie changed into intentional.
A susceptible, predictable script makesBro Daddy an underwhelming revel in with some vibrant spots.
