HOME: A Heartwarming Family Drama that Touches Everyone’s Hearts


A relatable, light-hearted family tale that drives people by Indran’s effortless performance. Changing with the times is not something that comes naturally to everyone.

Oliver Twist (Indrans), the protagonist of ‘Home’, is someone who has gone through that struggle more than once in his life.

The movie is needlessly long, but it makes up for it with great performances from the lead cast.

Present-day, Oliver finds an almost unbridgeable gap between him and his sons, who are lost in their smartphones and drowned in social media, a world alien to him, as it is for many of his generations.

Yet, the gap is more than that of technology. Oliver yearns especially for his elder son Antony (Sreenath Bhasi), a writer-director caught in a groove after his successful debut movie.

Oliver’s wife, Kuttiyamma (Manju Pillai), seems to grasp the inner workings of his mind, but there is only so much she can do while getting seized in her daily struggles in the household.

Having said this, these days, a movie seems daunting at 161 minutes, and #Home could have done well to have been at least 20 minutes shorter.

The various relationships portrayed – parents and children, friendship, siblings, husband and wife and more – are rounded, well-captured and stirring.

For example, every child has seen their adoring mother turn the tables and take sides with her husband at crucial moments.

And after all the comic, sweet moments, the final 20 minutes tug at your heartstrings, as it should. So, this is a film where the script reigns supreme.


Home is a comedy-drama Malayalam movie directed by Rojin Thomas.

The film stars Vijay Babu, Sreenath Bhasi and Srikant Murali in the lead roles and has its camera wielded by Neil D’Cuncha.

The movie is produced by Vijay Babu himself and music by Rahul Subrahmanian.

Oliver Twist’s (Indrans) family consists of his wife Kuttiyamma (Manju Pillai), his ageing father (Kainakari Thankaraj), and sons Antony (Sreenath Bhasi) and Charles (Maslen K Gafoor).


‘Home’ is a heartwarming tale of relationships that provides a much-needed touch of positivity.

It is a charming relationship drama but is too sweet at times, making it slightly unbearable.

However, it does leave a smile on your face with some lovely moments. What works in favour of Home is its simplistic storytelling.

It doesn’t boast of a great storyline, but it manages to tug at heartstrings with a plot peppered with some lovely moments and a heartwarming twist.

It’s a film you won’t mind recommending, and it demands a lovely watch with your family. It’s a movie where the whole family can laugh and cry happy tears together.
