Suvarna Purushan

It’s high time Mr. Mohanlal do something about the people who wants to sell him by creating extremely tacky creations. The Vishu weekend we witnessed one lackluster attempt and this week it’s the turn of Suvarna Purushan which beats last week’s Manju Warrier starrer Mohanlal by a big margin in being mediocre. Made with absolutely …




Ready Player One

The fun of watching Ready Player One is actually in the careful detailing one gets to see on screen about the virtual world which possibly could consume our time in the near future. Set in a time almost 30 years from now, this Steven Spielberg movie not only creates that world with precision but also …




Mercury

For a major part of its run-time, Karthik Subbaraj’s Mercury feels like an impressively executed typical horror movie. It is actually in the last half an hour of the movie where a large chunk of revealing happens and the director succeeds in making a statement out of the predictable equation. The tension is high and …




Aalorukkam

I just couldn’t agree to that statement. Creating a relationship between Dan and Shiuli would be like giving an entire back-story to the …




Panchavarnathatha

Much like the short films Ramesh Pisharody has done in the past, the movie Panchavarnathatha is also a film based on the need to be happy and simple in life. The path he has chosen is not a cinematically unique or captivating one. But the story here is simple and steady with the kind of …




Mohanlal

There is a special kind of eccentric movies we get to see mostly in Tamil that just wants to be loud at all points. To name a couple, I would say movies like VSOP, Trisha Illana Nayanthara etc. Sajid Yahiya’s first movie Idi was supposed to be a spoof that ended up in a no …




Kammara Sambhavam

The script of Kammara Sambhavam tries to be a spoof and satire of two things; the current political picture and the glorification or distortion of history in “based on true story” movies. It’s actually a very interesting idea to create a film. But some of the political statements made by this movie are annoying because …
