Oru Second Class Yathra is a Malayalam film released in 2015. Directed by Jexson Antony, the movie stars Vineeth Sreenivasan, Chemban Vinod Jose, and Nikki Galrani in the lead roles. The movie, which is a comedy-drama, is about two criminals who are on the run and get caught up in a journey of self-discovery. The movie begins with Gopalan (Vineeth Sreenivasan) and Ramesh (Chemban Vinod Jose) being released from jail. The two of them had been serving time for petty crimes. Their aim was to start a new life, away from crime. However, their plan fails when they are forced to steal money to pay a debt. This mistake leads them to a bus journey from Trivandrum to Kasaragod.

On the bus, they meet Sharika (Nikki Galrani), a journalist who is on a mission to expose corruption in the state. Sharika is initially skeptical of the two men, but she soon learns about their past and the reasons behind their behavior. The three of them get drawn into a series of misadventures that change their lives forever.

The bus journey turns out to be the perfect opportunity for Gopalan and Ramesh to redeem themselves. The movie explores their journey of self-discovery as they learn about their true selves and what they are capable of. Gopalan, who is a timid man, gains confidence and learns to stand up for himself. Ramesh, on the other hand, learns the importance of family and relationships.

The movie has a good mix of comedy and drama. The dialogues are witty and the chemistry between the three actors is excellent. Vineeth Sreenivasan and Chemban Vinod Jose are perfect in their roles. They bring out the nuances of their characters and make them believable. Nikki Galrani, too, is impressive as the no-nonsense journalist.

The movie also touches upon issues like corruption and the plight of the common man. It is a satire on the state of affairs in the country and the indifference of the authorities towards the problems faced by the people. The movie, however, does not take a preachy tone and manages to drive home the message without being too preachy.

The music by Gopi Sunder is a highlight of the movie. The songs, especially 'Arikil Pathiye' and 'Muthuchippi Poloru', are catchy and memorable. The cinematography is also impressive, capturing the beauty of Kerala and its landscape.

The movie, however, has a few flaws. The plot is predictable and does not offer any surprises. The movie also tends to drag in a few places, making it a tad bit lengthy. The climax, too, seems rushed and could have been better executed.

Overall, Oru Second Class Yathra is a well-made movie that is worth a watch. It is a refreshing change from the usual fare of Malayalam cinema and offers a different perspective on life. The movie is a testament to the fact that sometimes, the journey is more important than the destination.
