- Its a fun movie which carries its comic moments all through out the movie.The movie manages to keep its comic moments in almost every single scene without being slapstick.even in serious situations there is comedy and they are handled well
- Even though the premise is simple,it keeps you invested and entertained throughout the movie with lots of fun and bits of horror elements
- Performance from most of the cast members were convincing.Since its a comedy film,it didn’t had much of a drama.All that was required was to portray all the funny moments in an entertaining way and most of the cast has done it.

- The background score and the solo song of the film was good.
- Most of characters in the film are underdeveloped due to lack of drama.There is no specific behavioural traits for most of the characters
- Dhyan sreenivasan still need to improve alot as an actor as he was not convincing in some of the scenes.his dialog delivery lacks charisma and naturality.
- The movie leaves alot of unanswered questions regarding the story and characters
Verdict-So,’adikapyare kootamani’ is a good entertaining film that is especially meant for the youth with lots of funny moments and a few horror elements that keeps you invested throughout the film.
