PerformancesDulquer Salman as Afsal is good with his role of a lazy innocent teenager. Though his mannerisms remind us of his previous flicks, Dulquer has tried his best to live through his character. Nazriya Nazim as Shahana is good at her expressions, but leaves a space to improve at emotional scenes. Jacob Grigory as Binoy is successful to render some one-liners to produce some laughs here and there. Rest of the cast including Sidhique, Geetha, Sreekumar, Santhanam, Tini Tom (Venu Master) have done near justice to their roles.Technical AspectsCinematography by Satheesh Kurup has nothing much to offer, but maintains decent visuals throughout.Music by Gopi Sunder is good throughout the BGM portions, whereas the songs turnout to be just OK.The script by director himself has nothing much to offer for the viewers other than some one-liners. The core climax portions of the movie can be placed on the negative side along with many other negatives as it just gave a feeling – the director tried hard to end the movie all of a sudden and didn’t even justify or clarify the purpose, the whole movie was made for.
Verdict : On the whole, Salala Mobiles disappoints big time.Rating:1.5/5
