Debutant director Ashok Veerappan delivers a compelling drama in Buffoon, which turns out to be his directorial debut. The film registers the events that take place in the life of a therukoothu artist who falls into all sorts of trouble while trying to find himself a better life.

Kumara (Vaibhav) is a therukoothu artist who feels that his current job of being a stage artist does not find him much money, and wishes go to an abroad nation to earn more. By trying to do so, he falls into trouble and comes face to face with gangsters and cops who turn his life upside down and make him face the harsh reality.

Buffoon has genuine intent in hand and proceeds by following one point after the other in the protagonist’s life, and how small incidents and decisions lead to big problems. The film has a straightforward first half where it gains momentum slowly by introducing us to the weight of the problem, and then moves on a good note in the second half travelling through the track of the lead and how he is able to get through his problems.

Vaibhav delivers a very efficient performance playing the lead role, which has both innocent and tough shades to it. The actor understands the weight of the role and has done a good job that is worth of appreciation.

Anagha has a fine part to play in the film and carries it off well, along with the other actors such as Tamizh who play solid parts. Joju George’s cameo might not have much of an impact but it is a character which keeps its presence throughout the film.

The music by Santhosh Narayanan complements the film’s proceedings while the rest of the technical factors are good too.

On the whole, Buffoon is a convincing  drama that has both crime and thriller elements in it. Debutant director Ashok Veerappan scores through the length of his sharp dialogues, sensibilities and handling of the different situations in his film.  Buffoon Movie Review by Siddarth Srinivas
