Ladies and Gentleman is a Mohanlal starrer 2.5 hour comedy flick written and directed by hitmaker Siddique. Along with Mohanlal, Krish J Sathar, Kalabhavan Shajon and the Ladies - Mamtha Mohandas, Meera Jasmine, Padmapriya and Mithra Kurien play the lead roles in Ladies and Gentleman.
At least, at times, you may find Mohanlal's character Chandra Bose similar with that of his character in Hallo and Spirit - the drunkard which he plays with extreme ease. The Satheesh Kurup photographed movie is shot in Kochi and Dubai.
Chandra Bose (Mohanlal) is a free man who is at the brink of a divorce with his wife Achu (Meera Jasmine). However, he is a cheerful upbeat person with his heady and witty decisions. Bose's accidental involvement with a group of youngsters changes their lives, rather it changes his attitude towards life.
Mohanlal plays his role with usual ease. Another notable character is of Kalabhavan Shajon in the supportive role making audience lol to his witty dialogues. However, Krish as Sharath - a new comer who had ample scenes in the film disappointed. Mamtha leads the Ladies' crew with others supporting her well.
The movie would have done much better if it was released a couple of years back as it does not have a strong story line or quality to catch up with the movies of the time. However, Ladies and Gentleman doesn't lag anywhere with it going steady pace. Just worth a one time watch.
