Gauthamante Radham

My family owned a Maruti 800 for almost 11 years and there was a very deep emotional connection with that car. I am saying this because I can understand where the idea behind Gauthamante Radham came from. But debutant director Anand Menon just couldn’t utilize that emotional bonding in his first movie simply because of […]




Final Thoughts

Gauthamante Radham is a movie where you can clearly understand which portions were written with sincerity and which all portions were written to lengthen the movie.

Anweshanam

A major portion of the movie Anweshanam feels like a very exciting thriller. The story is happening inside a hospital and the makers keep us interested in that mystery to get revealed. From being in that suspense thriller mood, Prasobh Vijayan shifts the movie to a very emotional track in the second half. Even though […]




Final Thoughts

Anweshanam is certainly a watchable thriller. When you look at the way it began with the feel of a very gripping grey thriller, the end you get to see in the movie feels a bit on the safe side.

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.

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.

Big Brother

When you see big names in the industry collaborating for a movie that has zero appreciable qualities, a sense of anger kicks in and Big Brother from director Siddique starring Mohanlal is one movie like that. Following the mold of the humble hero with a lesser-known past, Big Brother is mocking the audience throughout its […]




Final Thoughts

Big Brother offers only boredom. This is a movie where you won't even feel that it was a nice thought that got badly executed.

Anjaam Pathiraa

There is a conviction issue I always face when I watch psychological serial killer movies in Malayalam. The problem is mainly because of the inability of the makers to convince us about the situation and make us buy that unreal scenario. The good thing about Anjaam Pathiraa directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas was that I […]




Final Thoughts

Anjaam Pathiraa is a thoroughly enjoyable gripping thriller. Anjaam Pathiraa in a way proves that a typical thriller story format can still work if the treatment is atypical.
