Comrade in America Review

Actor Dulquer Salmaan’s latest offering ‘Comrade in America’ has arrived in theatres. The film takes advantage of the ongoing communism wave in Malayalam cinema. But the film fails to captivate the true essence of the word ‘Communism’. The film revolves around the story of a communist leader named Aji Matthew which has been played by Dulquer Salmaan. The female lead of the film has been played by Karthika Muralidharan who is seen in the character of a girl named ’Sarah’. Karthika’s character is originally from the US and visits Kerala for education. Dulquer’s character falls in love with Sarah but their relationship is not approved by the girl’s parents and relatives.

Sarah then flies off to US and with only 2 weeks left for her wedding, Aji plans to enter the United States to get the girl of his dreams. But the biggest issue faced by him is that he is unable to get US visa as it is a lengthy process. Aji then decides to enter USA illegally by crossing Mexico’s border. The issue of illegal immigrants is a hot topic in USA right now and the film tries to highlight it.

The Verdict

Though the actors in the film do justice to their respective roles, the film’s story fails to captivate the audiences into knowing the ordeal faced by illegal immigrants while crossing the border. The director’s vision fell short of the huge expectations from the film and with Baahubali still running strong in its second week in cinemas; the film might have to struggle to get viewers.
