TOI: “It is interesting to see Dileep as an elderly man with thinning hair and a paunch, and while Keshu can be an out-and-out comic character, the actor plays him with a slightly serious touch, and not in his usual slapstick style. With its good comic and emotional moments, and its message, this is a movie that everyone in the family will enjoy watching together.”
OnManorama: “Keshu ee Veedinte Nadhan is a humorous family drama, not a slapstick comedy as one might expect when good old friends Dileep and Nadirshah join hands for a film for the first time. With an intriguing plot and interesting characters, the film keeps you engaged despite hiccups here and there in the narrative.”
Firstpost: “In one scene, Keshu lifts up a woman’s skirt at a clothing store without realising that it is on a real person and not a clothing rack. His character is not written as a creep, nor does the actor play him that way, so we’re actually expected to buy into his supposed absent-mindedness. Yeah, that’s meant to be funny.”
Pinkvilla: “The film, for better or worse belongs to its leading man – a deceptively simple performance from Dileep playing an old, scheming patriarch of a large joint family, holding onto the last shreds of a difficult life lived and providing for his loved ones.”
The story of Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan revolves around Keshu a driving instructor who wins a lottery win of Rs 12 crore which tests his morality. Stay tuned!
