Hostel Movie Review

Campus stories have always been a popular genre among a wide range of audiences. With the entire film set against the backdrop of a guys hostel, one would expect plenty of fun, laughter, tears, and love. However, Ashok Selvan’s latest film, Hostel, is completely constructed with the goal of eliciting mindless laughter from the audience and succeeds in doing so only in places. The film, a remake of the famous Malayalam film Adi kapyare Kootamani (2015), is about what happens when a girl becomes confined in a males’ dormitory with a harsh warden.

While the original’s one-liners and comedy of mistakes were well-placed, the remake is a touch chaotic and appears to have been lost in translation.

We are introduced to the dormitory warden, Father Kuriakose (Nasser), who is not just strict but also feels that discipline is vital. However, the majority of the hostel students we encounter are either alcoholics or sex-deprived. In fact, the film’s protagonist, Kathir (Ashok Selvan), is presented to us as a gentleman who struggles to look away from the body parts of a woman who is exercising in a neighboring park. If only scenes that objectify women are prohibited, filmmakers may be able to come up with better scenarios and concepts.

Returning to the plot, Adhirshtalakshmi (Priya Bhavani Shankar) meets Kathir in the park and discovers that he is struggling financially. She offers a large cash to bail him out of trouble in exchange for him taking her into the boys hostel where he stays. Kathir thinks it’s a good bargain and admits her to the hostel as promised. What ensues is a wild trip as she becomes imprisoned among the hostelites, the harsh warden, and his aide, Sathappan (Munishkanth). The rest of the film’s plot is around why Adhirshtalakshmi wants to enter the dormitory and what makes it so mysterious.

Ashok Selvan is one of the busiest actors in the industry these days, and he is constantly experimenting with the films in which he appears. Hostel differs from his earlier film, Sila Nerangalil Sila Manithargal, in that it deals with human emotions. In this, he is portrayed as a final-year dormitory student with no aspirations or motivations. In fact, most of the characters in the picture are the same, and they frequently rely on double entendres, which, save in a few occasions, fall flat.

While the film’s initial staging is intriguing, the plot begins to lose its grip when the filmmaker changes its genre to humor. The second half is written in the style of a typical horror comedy, which is neither hilarious nor terrifying. Aranthangi Nisha appears as a ghost who want to marry and have an intimate relationship with Kuriokose’s assistant, Saathappan. The scenes have no connection and merely serve to distance us from the main characters.

The combo moments between Munishkanth and Nasser, on the other hand, perform effectively and may entertain a segment of the audience. Ravi Maria, who plays Priya Bhavani Shankar’s father, performs admirably. If they had avoided the adult humor in the second half of the film, it would have performed wonderfully with children.

Priya Bhavani Shankar has done an adequate job in her role. The attitude she maintains throughout the film is consistent, and it works quite well. While Bobo Shashi’s background soundtrack adds substance to the script, the songs are subpar. A few moments in the first half are out of focus and do not appear to be technically sound. I’m not sure whether this was on purpose given the genre, but the cinematographer could have done a better job. The framing in the second half is excellent and deserves to be recognized. Overall, Hostel does not do the original justice.

Duration: 134 min
