Sarvopari Palakkaran

Sarvopari Palakkaran’s pre-release posters had this caption saying “The Best Film of 2017” referring to the preview show response. Well, those who saw the preview show of this film have definitely not seen Angamaly Diaries, Take Off and Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. Sarvopari Palakkaran is that tacky preachy movie which is made by assembling a lot of …

Varnyathil Aashanka

The third directorial venture of Sidharth Bharathan, Varnyathil Aashanka is an extremely engaging heist movie with abundant practical humor, interesting characterizations and a satiric tone. Written by Thrissur Gopalji this movie is a mixture of the conventional entertainment and modern day making style of keeping things natural and real. The theme here revolves around the …

With the standard pattern of serial killer movies getting repeated here Nibunan …

Unlike his other films, in Mubarakan there is only one guy to lessen the burden for the viewers and that is Mr. Anil Kapoor. …

Kadam Kadha

Miseries in life forcing the common people to do something that they don’t like are a premise we have seen earlier in films. Kadam Kadha directed by Senthil Rajan is another take on that same plot line. Because of the familiarity of the theme and the lack of intrigue in treatment, Kadam Kadha has occasional …
