Peace

Peace, the new dark comedy directed by Sanfeer, is a quirky experiment that is uneven yet very engaging. In the initial portions of the film, the narrative isn’t that smooth, and you feel a forceful effort to look cool. But once the triggering moment happens, it manages to grab the attention of the audience, and… Continue reading Peace

Theerppu

Towards the end of the movie Theerppu, there is a scene where Vijay Babu’s Ramkumar Nair tells Indrajith’s Kalyan Menon to stop the rhetoric and come to the point. It was pretty much what I felt when Prithviraj’s Abdulla Marakkar was sitting on that couch and saying lines before he could deliver justice. Theerppu is… Continue reading Theerppu

Mahaveeryar

Abrid Shine has always chosen themes that were unique for his movies. His new movie, Mahaveeryar, starring Nivin Pauly and Asif Ali, is a wacky fantasy that gets a satirical treatment with political layers.

In interviews, I have heard Mathukkutty saying that this is a film based on real life. But even biopics become interesting when the writing manages to crack an exciting perspective to narrate the… Continue reading Kunjeldho

Shylock

Towards the interval block of Shylock, the new Mammootty starrer from Ajai Vasudev, we get a feeling that this character might have something interesting to his credit. Because till that point we were seeing only the routine exaggerated stuff from the script. And when Boss tells the commissioner that you have no idea what’s coming… Continue reading Shylock

Uriyadi

The latest Malayalam movie Uriyadi is directed by AJ Varghese who directed the entertaining light-hearted comedy Adi Kappyare Koottamani. Uriyadi is a victim of bloated scripting. There are so many irrelevant tracks in this movie that are just there for the sake of making this one look like a comedy movie. And towards the end… Continue reading Uriyadi
