Squirrel Media : March 17/17

C/O Saira Banu is the family drama which stars Manju Warrier in the titular role. Amala Akkineni essays a pivotal role in the movie, which is directed by newcomer Antony Sony and scripted by RJ Shaan. C/O Saira Banu is jointly produced by Maqtro Pictures, RV Films, and Eros International

Plot

Saira Banu is a post woman who leads a peaceful life with her only son Joshua Peter, a college student. The mother-son duo shares a unique bond, which often raises a special interest among the people around them.
Annie John Tharavadi, on the other hand, is a leading advocate who was forced to part ways with her son, post the divorce. How Saira and Annie’s paths cross forms the crux of the story…

Manju Warrier, who plays Saira Banu has excelled in most of the parts, especially in the emotional sequences in the second half.

Amala Akkineni makes a grand comeback as Annie John, a highly-talented lawyer and a loving mother. She delivers an impressive performance and scores with the neat dialogue delivery.

Shane Nigam has delivered a decent performance as Joshua, Saira Banu’s son. But the actor surely needs improvement when it comes to the emotional scenes.
Antony Sony makes a neat directorial debut with this relatable, engaging flick. The director has successfully established the stories of three lead characters played by Manju, Amala, and Shane in the first half, in a neat, refreshing manner.
He has succeeded in portraying the struggles faced by the commoners who are caught in legal issues, in a totally moving and convincing manner. The only flaw is the comical situations, which fall flat without making an impact.

RJ Shaan, the writer has succeeded in bringing up a refreshing, relatable theme to the silver screen, without many flaws.

The movie discussed the issues faced by the commoners in our legal system in an effective way, which is commendable.
Mejo Joseph scores with the decent background score which perfectly goes hand-in-hand with the narrative. The songs are just fine.
Abdul Rahim, the DOP scores with the decent visualisation. The sharp editing by Sagar Das makes the movie an engaging experience. Sameera Saneesh has done a great job with the costumes.
A relatable, moving tale of a mother-son duo, with a very special surprise in store.
