A December release and a movie from Dulquer Salman after a long gap, there was bound to be a lot of buzz and hype around the movie. Naturally the expectations were too high. Also since Dulquer-Martin Prakaat's previous venture ABCD was a hit with positive feedback. Charlie however does not have a great story or comedy scenes like ABCD. The movie is simply a search by Parvathi Menon to find Charlie. Where the movie scores: 1The curiosity raised among the audience by Parvathi Menon around this Charlie character. 2The positive vibes created by the attitude of Charlie towards life and all those who he meets along the way 3The moments were Dulquer's commanding laugh reminded of his father Mammooty. 4A helpless daughter, an ill-fated wife and an unlucky doctor who gets back happiness thanks to Charlie However amidst all these positives, the end felt like i was told to get out of the train before reaching the destination. A ridiculous magic trick and poor attempts at jokes did not make the climax any better. Overall like any other viewer I would admit that Dulquer Salman owned it and I may even watch it again
Travel, adventure, standing up and fighting injustices heroically, being one with people from poorer or less fortunate sections of society, being able to express the goodness in oneself boldly and completely, not being confined to small predictable lives - these are all longings that will resonate with a lot of people. Charlie fulfills all these beautifully, providing the viewer some emotional satisfaction. Cinema as a business is built around it's ability to be an escape from the boring routines and predictabilities of life. Charlie fits the business model nicely. Dulqar is the star of the movie. The movie rests squarely on his shoulders. If he had not delivered, the movie had absolutely no chance. I think this is his best performance so far. He has effectively challenged himself by rising above just being a behavior actor. He is a star. His likability sold. His work on his physique shows. His dialogue delivery is endearing. Charming fellow. Parvathy is an awesome actress. She has a very crucial role as well. She has much more screen time than Dulqar though the movie revolves fully around DQ. She is beautiful and has kept her presence sweet throughout the movie. The situations in the movie were not predictable though not all of them were totally new. The story line has been drawn very carefully, wary of the viewer and holding some tricks up the sleeve all the way. Spotted with interesting incidents, the movie is a feel gooder. The movie has good art work. I will not be surprised if the movie wins awards for it's art work in addition to many others. The sets are interesting. Lot of nice objects have been used to tell the story of the movie. The songs are impressive and is at par with the movie. Coming at pretty regular intervals, the movie is kept pleasant and musical all through. Cinematography is excellent. The movie has been written to use lot of beautiful/ varied / striking sights and the camera has captured them nicely - be it the saturated colors of fort kochi, the striking costumes, pooram. However, the fact of the matter is that the movie is quite sublime and just whiffs off pretty quickly. It was not meant to be deep or leave a lasting impact. It is just a nice roller coaster ride into Charlie's life. I would see it again.
I have seen martin martins ABCD and expected the same quality from this flick too. I was not disappointed. I felt it very refreshing. A new genre. Story about a mysterious loud laughing person portrayed by Dulquer. Cast wise Parvathy and Aparna did decent job. Loud laughs may be annoying for some, but I would suggest to take that in right sense. Also climax was better than i expected. I was thoroughly entertained. This is the first time I am reviewing about a film, since I found a spoiler from other person. Cons:humours are light and worth laughing. Mysterious person portrayed really well. Unni R and Martin has done a good job with the script(well scripted). Pros: Loud laughs may be clichéd and annoying. Verdict : good movie, watch with family...
Once a wise man said, ' search with your best effort, search in every corner, search with a feeling, feeling that runs through your veins , feeling for what you are seeking.

Charlie, name of a mystery, an enigma to be unfolded by a beautiful girl who accidentally gets to know him by his unfinished Sketchbook story, discovers a nomad yet so beautiful young lad who sees things differently. He is kind of a mixture of humayun's himu character and landon from highway to heaven.

Dulquer plays Charlie with effortless ease which lends an unique grace to the character aided by the brilliant portrayal of both female leads.
