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




Boomika

In the movie Boomika, there is a sequence where the character Dharman, a local villager who takes care of this old mansion where the movie is set, talks about how he now understands his grandfather’s laughter, which he used to find weird. The editing pattern of that sequence combined with the background score is too… Continue reading Boomika




#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




Bhuj: The Pride of India

The intention of the makers of the movie Bhuj: The Pride of India might be to show us how we fought back with unity to revamp a demolished airbase during the 1971 war. But the writing and making of this movie are so bad that it almost becomes a mockery of a historical event. With… Continue reading Bhuj: The Pride of India

Despite the logical flaws, one could sense and the overtly verbal explanations, Netrikann manages to generate a sense of interest in the viewer.… Continue reading Netrikann




Shershaah

The promo materials of Shershaah had a less jingoistic tone to its credit, and at a time when patriotism is getting used as a marketing tool, seeing that trailer kind of offered a bit of relief. But when it comes to the film, this Vikram Batra biopic is more of a template rather than a… Continue reading Shershaah




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




Dial 100

The issue with Dial 100 is that at no point this suspense thriller feels like it has any sort of suspense in it. The trailer itself has revealed all the vital plot points, and whatever is left gets shown at a very early stage in the movie. The only thing that makes this Rensil D’Silva… Continue reading Dial 100
