Jallikkattu

Jallikkattu is one grand cinematic vision of seemingly simplistic thought. I know people who have seen Unda and asked why there was no Maoist at the end. I am just dragging that movie in this review simply because, if you also had the same question at the end of Unda, Jallikkattu might well end up […]




Manoharam

Manoharam directed by Anvar Sadik is a template feel-good movie that has an extremely predictable script with only one major difference; the backdrop. The movie’s running time is around 122 minutes and thus this movie never becomes a burden for the viewer. With too much of guessable turn of events in the screenplay, Manoharam is […]




Ganagandharvan

The first half of the movie Ganagandharvan is a very usual tale of miseries of a middle-class guy.

But in the second half, the movie enters a very […]

Brother’s Day

The debut directorial of Kalabhavan Shajon, Brother’s Day is a movie that just goes on and on in an attempt to be a so-called family entertainer. The beginning portions of the movie promised to be an entertainer similar to something like an Amar Akbar Anthony. But when it came to the second half of the movie […]







Love Action Drama

Love Action Drama is an ultimate Nivin Pauly show. But the problem is that it is only a Nivin Pauly show. I am someone who has enjoyed watching movies like Thattathin Marayathu, Oru Vadakkan Selfie, etc. Those films may not be monumental cinematic achievements, but they were thoroughly engaging and all of them had a […]
