Putham Puthu Kaalai Vidiyaadhaa

Putham Puthu Kaalai Vidiyaadhaa, the new lockdown anthology from Amazon Prime Video, is arranged chronologically from bad to better.

At the same time, the other directors are more interested in the… Continue reading Putham Puthu Kaalai Vidiyaadhaa




Sathyam Mathrame Bodhippikku

When you finish watching the first half of the movie Sathyam Mathrame Bodhippikku, you might get the feeling that the second half will have something interesting. But when it comes to the second half, the film acts like this is the first-ever movie to show police officers killing criminals in a fake encounter because the… Continue reading Sathyam Mathrame Bodhippikku




Meppadiyan

Meppadiyan by Vishnu Mohan is a mix of clichés and interesting plot twists. The story here will remind you of the family dramas prominent in Malayalam cinema almost two decades ago. Vishnu Mohan basically revamps that genre with a central conflict that is relatable to nearly all the middle-class people in society. Thus Meppadiyan becomes… Continue reading Meppadiyan




Randu

Sujith Lal’s Randu is this socio-political satire that feels very flat in terms of how it has constructed drama in the story. Last week’s satire Oru Thathvika Avalokanam was one film that lacked a well-structured story. In Randu, Sujith Lal is actually trying to give some structure to his concept. But the outdated feel of… Continue reading Randu

Oru Thathvika Avalokanam

Oru Thathvika Avalokanam from Akhil Marar is that superficial exploration of the political reality from the sensibility of someone who scrolls through the Facebook feed. Political satires are not an alien concept, and we have had classics like Panchavadippalam and Sandesham in that genre. Films have got read in different ways over time, and Sandesham… Continue reading Oru Thathvika Avalokanam




Vidhi

Vidhi from Kannan Thamarakkulam is yet another scripting scam that ridicules the cinematic sensibility of an evolved audience. The film is inspired by the events that happened in the recent past in Maradu. Flats were demolished after the Supreme Court found a violation in its construction. In the movie, Anoop Menon and Dharmajan Bolgatty play… Continue reading Vidhi




Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan

Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan clearly shows you how the desperation to be a comedy entertainer can mess up an entire film. In the movie, there is a moment when Dileep’s Keshu suddenly gets possessed by Meledathu Raghavan Nair and lectures about his hardships. And you will feel like telling the character how annoying he was… Continue reading Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan
