Pidikittapulli

Pidikittapulli, the new Sunny Wayne movie directed by Jishnu Sreekandan, comes when all of us complain about the lack of a good humor-oriented movie that can lighten and brighten the mood. But seeing this horrendously lousy film made from a script that doesn’t seem to have gone for a second draft, you might reconsider withdrawing… Continue reading Pidikittapulli




#Home

What makes the new Rojin Thomas movie #Home a very pleasing and heartwarming family drama is the relatability factor. I am not saying it’s a perfect movie by all means. Because there is a pattern to the screenplay and mild spoiler alert, you can sense a similarity with the M Mohanan movie Kadha Parayumbol in… Continue reading #Home




Kuruthi

The focus of Kuruthi is on hatred among people like “them and us” and how it has always been a baton passed from one generation to another generation. Kuruthi, written by Anish Pallyal and directed by Manu Warrier, isn’t taking a side here. It is almost like this balancing act where we see two communities… Continue reading Kuruthi




Bannerghatta

If Bannerghatta was released in theaters, I am sure at least one guy in the audience would have screamed at the idiot hero for not speaking up. Bannerghatta wants to feel like a mysterious thriller. But it has no clue about what to become eventually. In the beginning, they have placed certain horror elements to… Continue reading Bannerghatta




Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam

Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam is a very straightforward drama that I thought was exposing human hypocrisy and vulnerability very interestingly. It doesn’t have a gender bias in its agenda, and as the story progresses, director Don Palathara uses this peculiar idea to show us some of the human behavior and its grey shades. The movie doesn’t… Continue reading Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam




Malik

With his latest film Malik, Mahesh Narayanan is trying to narrate a wide canvas political drama that lingers onto its central character Sulaiman, played yet again with astonishing conviction by Fahadh Faasil. By the time the opening shot of the movie, a 12-minute single take, ends, you can somehow understand what will happen in the… Continue reading Malik




Sara’s

If you are okay with average craft and pertinent messaging in movies, I guess the new Jude Anthany Joseph movie Sara’s will work for you immensely. Sara’s is a movie that deals with the idea of personal choice and parenting in the backdrop of the current society. Anyone in that age group of 25 to… Continue reading Sara’s




Cold Case

Tanu Balak’s Cold Case starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Aditi Balan in prominent roles, is a movie that never becomes interesting. Written by Sreenath V Nath, the trajectory of Cold Case is an amalgamation of the different thrillers we have seen, and thus when they finally reveal the real culprit, it only becomes one of the… Continue reading Cold Case
