Kurup

The one question that sparked heated debate on social media before the release of the movie Kurup was that whether the film would end up glorifying the notorious criminal who mercilessly killed a common man for his own gain. Well, what you get to see in the movie is some clever tactics by the makers… Continue reading Kurup




Star

There is no point in preaching to the viewer after torturing them for almost 2 hours in the darkness of the theater. Star, the first official theater release in Malayalam after the six months break, is a movie that wants to talk about a sensitive issue. But the making is so bad that you are… Continue reading Star




Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam

Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam, directed by Senna Hegde, is an absolute laugh riot with fabulous layers of politics. Senna Hegde and cinematographer Sreeraj Raveendran use the premise of a wedding to making a satire that mocks the patriarchal system brutally and hilariously. With admirable minimalism and an astonishing cast, this one-day black comedy is a brilliantly made… Continue reading Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam

Kaanekkaane

The fragility of the human mind and those grey areas of the moral dilemma have always produced interesting content with some peculiar characters. Kaanekkaane, the second directorial of Manu Ashokan after Uyare taps into those areas. Manu’s second collaboration with writer duo Bobby and Sanjay is a much more refined drama that focuses on the… Continue reading Kaanekkaane




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
