Unlike his previous cameo roles, director Lal Jose decided to do a full fledged character in this movie. His character David Paul was brilliantly executed by Lal Jose. Asif Ali as Amal played a nice and friendly heartbroken bachelor. Aparna was excellent to her given character. Other cast like Dharmajan , Siddique was superb in each and every scene.
Cinematography of Sunday Holiday was handled by Alex J Pulickal and he has done his job efficiently because the visuals are quite decent. It really demanded some freshness in its frames.
Music department did a good job in making the movie a really feel good one. Thanks to Deepak Dev for giving us such nice tunes. The script work has been done by Urasu and Kiran V S together and the story is unique and an altogether different experience. Overall the director
Jis Joy has done a great job in making such a wonderful feel good movie. Hope everyone will enjoy this fun ride in theatres.
