Martin Prakkat, who debuted as director with Mammootty's Best Actor, has 
teamed with his son Dulquar Salman and a few new faces for his second directorial venture ABCD (American Born Confused Desi), which has hit the marquee this Friday. The movie is out-and-out laugh riot with fine performances and rich production values. With this film, Dulquar is sure to set a new style statement. ABCD is a beautiful romance comedy entertainment with all masala stuff to impress the mass. Dulquar and Jacob's brilliant performances are the main highlights of the film. Sooraj-Neeraj's interesting story, Martin's engaging narration, Gopi Sunder's music, Jomon T John's camera work, beautiful artwork and locales and trendy costumes and makeups are its other attractions. Some illogical and over-the-top comedy scenes are its drawbacks.
 The movie narrates the journey of two American Malayalees to their motherland - Kerala. ABCD brings out their dilemmas in the unfamiliar circumstances in a very hilarious way. The story is quite interesting and Martin Prakkat has a very good grip on the narration of the whole show. With a few comedy scenes and funny-one-liners, the director keeps you engaged in the film till its end.
 Johns (Dulquar Salman) is born and brought up in America, he leads a luxurious life. But some unprecedented events lead him to leave for his motherland Kerala. His cousin Kora (Jacob Gregory) also accompanies him. Soon Johns becomes a star among his relatives here with his foreign attire and gentle behaviour. How he behaves in some unfamiliar circumstances have been brought in humorous way should be watched on screen.
