Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review | A Fun Human Robo Rom-Com With an Underdeveloped Central Conflict

The reason why something like Android Kunjappan worked for me was the fact that it was able to address various aspects of a robot entering our routine life. From the obvious humor to the emotional impact such an unemotional entity creates in our minds was presented very sensibly in that film. When it comes to… Continue reading Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review | A Fun Human Robo Rom-Com With an Underdeveloped Central Conflict

Lal Salaam Review | The Movie Equivalent of That Communal Harmony Instagram Photoshoot

When directors like Vetrimaran, Pa Ranjith, Mari Selvaraj, etc., made films that were extremely political, I heard people complaining that it was sort of easy to make these movies as the craft is secondary, and people won’t criticize much about the lack of cinematic quality because of the politics. Well thanks to Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s lousy… Continue reading Lal Salaam Review | The Movie Equivalent of That Communal Harmony Instagram Photoshoot

Anweshippin Kandethum Review | A Dull Thriller That Relies Too Much on Twists to Salvage

The latest Tovino Thomas film, Anweshippin Kandethum, directed by Darwin Kuriakose, is a flat thriller that tries really hard to elevate its graph through twists but hardly succeeds. Set in the early ’90s, the movie wants to utilize the lack of technology in investigative methods to make the hero’s journey look tough. But the script… Continue reading Anweshippin Kandethum Review | A Dull Thriller That Relies Too Much on Twists to Salvage

Premalu Review | Naslen and Mamitha Shine in This Uneven Romantic Comedy

Girish AD is one director who has managed to create his own signature style with his first two films. And if you look at those movies on a script level, they are very much unnarratable. Like, if you try to narrate that movie to a friend who hasn’t seen that film, he or she will… Continue reading Premalu Review | Naslen and Mamitha Shine in This Uneven Romantic Comedy

Argylle Review | Matthew Vaughn’s Spy Comedy Is Fun, but a Little Too Familiar

Matthew Vaughn’s new spy comedy Argylle is very much an extension of his Kingsman series. While the highly imaginative wacky set pieces give you a visual high at many places, the back and forth between the real and fictional identity of the key character is a bit exhaustive after a point. The spoofy irreverence in… Continue reading Argylle Review | Matthew Vaughn’s Spy Comedy Is Fun, but a Little Too Familiar

Mrudhu Bhave Dhruda Kruthye Review | This Shajoon Kariyal Film Is the Annual Conclave of Bad-Acting

When the movie’s story is so lame, and the story credit belongs to the producer, you sort of know how much voice people involved in the making may have had in raising a red flag during the production of a film about its outdated and borderline spoof nature. The latest Shajoon Kariyal film, Mrudhu Bhave… Continue reading Mrudhu Bhave Dhruda Kruthye Review | This Shajoon Kariyal Film Is the Annual Conclave of Bad-Acting

Iyer In Arabia Review | A Wasted Opportunity to Create a Pertinent Political Satire

In the current world politics, we can all see the dominance of extremism and how the typically neutral people have been inclined towards such extremist narratives. MA Nishad, with his new movie Iyer in Arabia, has plans to tap into that space and create a satire. But rather than the paper-cutting knowledge of the situation,… Continue reading Iyer In Arabia Review | A Wasted Opportunity to Create a Pertinent Political Satire

LLB Review | A Bland Sentimental Package With Heavily Outdated Cliches

The new Sreenath Bhasi film LLB has this tagline – Life Line of Bachelors. The connection of the movie with LLB will make you feel cheated, the same way some of the students of Zamorins Guruvayurappan College, who attended the show I watched, felt hoping to watch them on screen. Directed by AM Sidhique, LLB… Continue reading LLB Review | A Bland Sentimental Package With Heavily Outdated Cliches
