Fancy Dress

Fancy Dress, the new Guinness Pakru movie directed by Ranjith Skaria is one good example of terrible writing. The predictability of this movie is very high and there is absolutely zero importance for freshness. The only thing that is good about this film, in my opinion, is its duration of 124 minutes. The movie ended exactly at that point when you will feel that you can’t take it anymore.




Margamkali

If you are someone who has felt that the last movie of director Sreejith Vijayan, Kuttanadan Marppappa and the last hero outing of Bibin George, Oru Pazhaya Bomb Kadha are enjoyable films, then the new movie Margamkali that marks the first collaboration of these two might work for you as a passable entertainer. I personally am not a fan of the movies mentioned in the beginning and apart from a couple of humorous scenes Margamkali for me was a charmless effort at creating a love story. When Siddique cracked a Kaviyoor Ponnamma related joke towards the end, I really laughed thinking how good it would have been if the whole movie had that kind of sense of humor.




Thanneer Mathan Dinangal

As a concept Thanneer Mathan Dinangal is a really vague idea that sort of captures the entire essence of the plus-two life. But I was having a really good time watching it, subconsciously wondering how smartly they carved a movie out of a simple structure. Thanneer Mathan Dinangal was a hilarious ride with a lot […]




Sachin

Watching the new Santhosh Nair movie Sachin, scripted by SL Puram Jayasurya would make you wonder whether they were scripting the movie as the shooting was progressing. I will be struggling really hard to write this review as this movie was making me say “What the hell” scene after scene! At one point the movie […]







Marconi Mathai

If any of you have this feeling that the wacky style Lijo Jose Pellissery used in Amen and the typical emotional angle Rajkumar Hirani uses in his films are very easy filmmaking techniques, then Marconi Mathai from Sanil Kalathil will show you how bizarre such treatments can look if handled badly. Marconi Mathai is like […]




Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkuvo

Within its constrained plot, G Prajith’s Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkuvo tries to be two things; a social satire and an emotional journey of its central character. If you look at it that way, it is somewhat similar to writer Sajeev Pazhoor’s first film Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. While the black comedy aided satiric aspect of this movie is […]




Shubharathri

There will be a category of the audience who won’t be interested in things like nuanced writing or the craft in the making etc. if there is a message attached to the film. Director Vyasan KP’s new film Shubharathri is designed for such people. The movie is an overflow of goodness and for anyone who […]
