Mariyam Vannu Vilakkoothi

There is an acceptance issue for a genre like a stoner comedy, especially in Malayalam as there are very few movies made in that genre. Mariyam Vannu Vilakkoothi directed by debutant Jenith Kachappilly is an interesting absurd stoner comedy. If you are someone who doesn’t have any issue with the existence of the genre of […]

Final Thoughts

If you are someone who wanted Kili Poyi to be a little funnier and if you have enjoyed movies like Padayottam, you will find Mariyam Vannu Vilakkoothi as an enjoyable harmless silly entertainer.

Street Dancer 3D

It becomes a tough task for the reviewer when the movie itself has no real aspiration to be an interesting one. Street Dancer 3D, the new Remo D’Souza dance movie is pretty much what we all sort of expected. Back to back dance sequences with a story that is extremely cheesy and superficial. If you […]

Final Thoughts

Watching 5 episodes of DID is a much better option considering the time and money you will be spending to watch this movie.

Psycho

Along with the signature style of Mysskin in creating a visual language, there is an attempt in Psycho to understand why the antagonist here became a psychopath. That track of this movie doesn’t have the desired amount of emotional depth. The drama in the screenplay is uneven and the abrupt shifts in the tone of […]

Final Thoughts

The drama in the screenplay is uneven and the abrupt shifts in the tone of the movie make it an irregular movie with some captivating and also cringe-worthy moments.

Panga

Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari knows how to capture the texture of a middle-class Indian family. Panga, her new outing with Kangana Ranaut is a movie that works for us mostly due to this relatable backdrop element. The idea is to motivate women to strive for that second innings in life which most of them hesitate due […]

Final Thoughts

The light-hearted tone and the earnest performances are the highlights of this Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari movie that follows a very typical template we see in sports-based dramas.

The Kung Fu Master

Barring his debut film 1983, which was very much on the feel-good nostalgic track, the other two films from Abrid Shine had this approach to present a story with a very authentic backdrop. Action Hero Biju showed us how things go in a real police station and in Poomaram we were all pretty much in […]

Final Thoughts

If I am rooting for this movie despite the casting being compromising at some points and the story being very thin, it's only because of this authentic action movie feel one gets to experience.

Shylock

Towards the interval block of Shylock, the new Mammootty starrer from Ajai Vasudev, we get a feeling that this character might have something interesting to his credit. Because till that point we were seeing only the routine exaggerated stuff from the script. And when Boss tells the commissioner that you have no idea what’s coming […]

Final Thoughts

Creating a lot of stylish slow-motion visuals that fans can easily cut and use in the star’s birthday tribute video and calling it a stylish entertainer is not an acceptable thing.

Uriyadi

The latest Malayalam movie Uriyadi is directed by AJ Varghese who directed the entertaining light-hearted comedy Adi Kappyare Koottamani. Uriyadi is a victim of bloated scripting. There are so many irrelevant tracks in this movie that are just there for the sake of making this one look like a comedy movie. And towards the end […]

Final Thoughts

Uriyadi is a movie where you will find yourself questioning the relevance of every scene.

1917

1917 is a master class without a doubt. Sam Mendes has made a movie that will make you wonder how on earth they managed to execute that. When I knew about the technical achievements of this movie, a part of me feared whether the “single-shot” approach would affect the emotional depth of the content. But […]

Final Thoughts

This is one movie where you can rave about almost every department in the movie for the quality they have maintained to create such a fabulous cinema.
