Kappela

Taking a very slim idea and converting it into an engaging film is a very exciting thing to witness as a viewer. That process sort of shows you the endless opportunities in making a movie. Kappela could have been easily a preachy film. But debutant director Muhammed Musthafa tries to give it that cinematic appeal […]




Final Thoughts

With a terrific pool of actors delivering the performances in the desired way, Kappela has the element to excite a cinephile.

Baaghi 3

The audacity of the director Ahmed Khan to credit himself as the “Action Designer” and director of the movie Baaghi 3, after making all those atrocious abuses of the branch of science called Physics for almost two and a half hours deserves a minimum of two film fare awards. You hear all these conversations happening in the […]




Final Thoughts

Baaghi 3 is what if Balakrishna did his stunts with a believable physique and with the help of better graphics.

Thappad

The title is Thappad (slap) and the trailer reveals that it’s a movie about a woman who decides to file a divorce petition against her husband when he slapped her during a party. In our heads, we will be imagining the movie to have a husband character who has absolutely no regard for his wife […]




Final Thoughts

Through those multiple stories of the women around Amrutha, Thappad also proves the point that moving on doesn’t always have to be associated with the word compromise.

Bhoomiyile Manohara Swakaryam

Bhoomiyile Manohara Swakaryam is one gigantic cringe-fest. From melodramatic dialogues to caricature-like characters that are somewhat similar to those mediocre government ads we saw on TV, this movie directed by Shyju Anthikkad has everything that can give you a headache. The plan is to show the viewer that religion has penetrated so much into our […]




Final Thoughts

A script that wants to take everything to the very extreme in a very superficial way became even more insufferable when it got made in a ludicrous way.

Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal

The trailer of Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal was nothing short of mediocre and in my opinion and that wasn’t a pleasing invitation card to watch a movie. If you also had the same feeling watching the trailer of Desingh Periyasamy’s Dulquer Salmaan- Ritu Varma starrer Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal, then I have good news for you.  The […]




Final Thoughts

With enough humor covering up the flawed logic of the story, it’s a stress-free popcorn entertainer with flaws that we won’t mind forgiving.

Forensic

During the panel discussion of the recent Movie Street conclave about the last decade of Malayalam cinema, the topic of scientific accuracy came across and one of the invitees criticized the unreal visual presentation of laboratories in our movies. Seeing the colorful forensic laboratory in the movie Forensic I kind of giggled whenever it was […]




Final Thoughts

Forensic is not a difficult movie to sit through, but the kind of familiarity or typical nature it has makes it a passable thriller that won't stay with you like an Anjaam Pathiraa.

Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte

Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte, the latest Shambu Purushothaman movie after his debut film Vedivazhapadu pretty much has the same intent in terms of politics. The movie wishes to mock the double standards and hypocrisy of the society that has this extremely pseudo morality code. I am a sucker for social satires and was extremely impressed when […]




Final Thoughts

The major thing that differentiates Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte from Vedivazhipadu is that effectiveness.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

I don’t really wish to talk about the craftsmanship in Hitesh Kewalya’s directorial debut, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. It is not because the movie lacks craft, but somewhere I felt it’s a movie that needs an acceptance on an emotional level. If you look at the structure of the Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, you can […]




Final Thoughts

What’s so good about this movie was that for a major chunk of the movie, you will be laughing out loud and clapping your hands for the genuinely funny humor which is there in the writing.
