Oru Cinemakkaran

Oru Cinemakkaran is a movie that frequently deviates from our expectations. I can say that in a positive way, but in the case of this movie directed by Leo Thaddeus, that observation is on the negative sense. You might be expecting a story that deals with the struggle of a wannabe film maker, but Oru …

Avarude Ravukal

Story telling in cinema becomes interesting when a director takes a convincing narrative style to tell a story. Sometimes they experiment with it and sometimes they choose the best suitable one. In the case of Avarude Ravukal, the second directorial venture of Shanil Mohammed who earlier co directed Philips and the Monkey pen, the treatment …

Gold Coins

Gold Coins directed by Pramod G Gopal tries desperately to be an earnest movie that tries to spread a positive message to the children. You can’t really blame the intent of the movie.

Godha

When story dominates over stars, the movie eventually becomes more engaging and that is what has happened with Godha, the new movie directed by Basil Joseph. Basil made his debut with an out and out comedy film Kunjiramayanam and this time he sort of extends his trademark humor to a heartening story of chasing and …

Ramante Edanthottam

Ramante Edanthottam is partially preachy for sure. But the theme of the movie touches an issue that seems to be very important in the busy life style of these days. Made as a woman’s self discovery journey by breaking the notions of patriarchy, this movie has discrete situations which have a likeable philosophical tone. Malini …
