I watched the Malayalam film Chicken Kokkachi yesterday with zero expectations, as I had never heard of it before. I was pleasantly surprised to have a good time-pass of two hours with this full length slapstick comedy. I don't think such an attempt has been made in Malayalam before.
The film, directed by Anuranjan Premji, tells the story of a youngster who leaves his home in the village because of various reasons, and comes to work in a bakery at Thrissur town for earning some money. The film is not much about its story, but the whole purpose of it seems to be to create some situational humor where we see people falling down stepping on oil, throwing things on each other, etc. The director has choreographed the scenes well to create an overall experience reminding of Chaplin films.
