Description

Thanneer Mathan Dinangal (transl. Watermelon days) is a 2019 Indian Malayalam language romantic comedy film co-written and directed by Girish A. D. The film was jointly produced by Plan J Studios and Shebin Backer Productions.[4] The film stars Vineeth Sreenivasan, Mathew Thomas, and Anaswara Rajan in the lead roles.[5] The film grossed around 3 crore in Kerala alone in its first three days.[6]

The film follows the life of a happy-go-lucky Jaison, an eleventh grade student, in his new school as he makes new friends and unsuccessfully woos Keerthy, his classmate, while maintaining an unfriendly relation with Ravi, a new Malayalam teacher, who often snubs him.
The film received highly positive reviews from critics and audience alike.

Deepa Soman of The Times of India rated the film with three stars out of five. She praised the performances of Mathew Thomas and Anaswara Rajan while applauding Vineeth Sreenivasan for his portrayal of a different avatar he hasn't tried so far. According to her "Tales that take one back in time, especially to the formative years of school days, can almost always be a winner. But, to make it a movie-long memorable affair, it takes enough of clever, relatable fun elements and smart storytelling. Thanneermathan is a story that succeeded in presenting them all, for most parts." [12]

Sajin Srijith of the The New Indian Express called the film a High-school drama done right. He said, "Not many of us still have vivid memories of our school days, which surely had both pleasant and embarrassing moments that shaped our formative years. However that doesn't seem to be the case with writer-director Girish A. D. who, in his directional debut, manages to evoke with perfect clarity, a lot of situations that look strikingly familiar even if some of them may not have actually happened to you." [13]

S. R. Praveen of The Hindu praised the film calling it a school story which actually shows what kids do at school, which is not something that can be said about many other school films. He said that the film is School, as it is. [14]
