Solomonte Theneechakal: Reviews and IMDb Rating

According to reviews, the film Solomonte Theneechakal is acknowledged as an improvement over Lal Jose’s recent works, although it doesn’t reach the heights of his best films. The script offers some effective twists and turns, but the execution of the investigation aspect falls short compared to contemporary crime thrillers. The young actors, including the lead cast of Vincy, Darshana, Shambhu, and Addis, are commended for showing promise in their performances. The movie is seen as a platform to showcase these talented actors, handpicked by the director himself. However, there is a suggestion that focusing on a single genre rather than blending two subjects would have enhanced the viewing experience. Users on IMDb have given the film a rating of 6.2/10
