Velipadinte Pusthakam or can be also called as The Book of Revelation is failed to reveal its original content. The first time combination of Mohanlal & Lal Jose is not up to the mark or is failed to be a classic film. Lal Jose who is an adequate film maker gave classics like Ayalum Njanum Thammil & Classmates also gave commercial success with Meesa Madhavan & Diamond Necklace have been failed in Velipadinte Pusthakam. This movie stands as an average film with its flappy script and execution.t
Velipadinte Pusthakam traveled in a pleasant and easy go manner in case of Michael and when it comes to Vishwam who is a local goon the movie skipped its original content and tried to make the scenes which are unrealistic.
The movie can be talked only for its performances which are one of the best in Malayalam Film Industry till date. Mohanlal - A Complete Actor did his role precisely and all the supporting actors have also done an excellent job. Salim Kumar's humor will not entertain the audience as it were the well known decade old gags.
Screenplay by Benny P Nayarambalam was good and also delivers some hidden surprises in between which connects well with the audience. Cinematography by Vishnu Sharma is beautiful and met the needs what this kind of story required. Music by Shaan Rehman is well elevated and involved in the atmosphere of the movie traveled.
Velipadinte Pusthakam is missing the classic with its loose script but the performances are high.
