Odiyan Malayalam Movie Short Review

Watched Odiyan. Apart from the fact that this movie is wrongly marketed and belongs to a different genre that it was showcased, my main problem was that the screenplay had strong similarity to Chandrolsavam. The Mohanlal-Manju Warrier-Prakash Raj angle, settings , major plot points all looked a straight lift from Chandrolsavam with just Odiyan skills […]

2.0 Tamil Movie Short Review

For a movie on robots, despite an overstretched last 45 min, Enthiran did have smart writing. The scene where Bohra (Dany) tricks Chitti to stab knife on Vaseegaran to get him disapproved or one where Chitti gets angry for the first time making us realize he has gained feelings – they were all good ideas. […]

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam Tamil Movie Review

First things first. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has a really entertaining first half. Mani Ratnam gives stylish introduction to his characters and plays to the gallery. There is more comedy than you expect for a Mani Ratnam movie with both Vijay Sethupathi and Simbu having a lot of hilarious one-liners. The scene where the mother looks […]

Koode Malayalam Movie Short Review

There are things in Anjali Menon’s Koode that works and that doesn’t work compared to its original Marathi movie – Happy Journey. For instance , Happy Journey was 1 hour 56 minutes. While Koode is 40 minutes longer . Pace really takes a back seat as this difference of 40 minutes really stand out. Happy […]

CIA Malayalam Movie Short Review

In CIA, Dulquer Salmaan and Siddique share great chemistry as Dad and son in the first half. Dileesh Pothan shines in the comedy scenes. Background score by Gopi Sunder is once again pretty good. Vaanam Thilathilakanu song is very nice though poorly placed in the movie. But these are about the only things I liked […]

Jomonte Suvisheshangal Review -An Open Letter to Sathyan Anthikad

Dear Sathyan Anthikad I saw Jomonte Suvisheshangal yesterday. It started off pleasantly and I thought this looked different from your other movies. Dulquer Salman and Mukesh as the father-son duo shared great chemistry. I especially enjoyed the scenes where Mukesh tried to make a land deal in a funeral or Dulquer walked into a bus […]

Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan Short Review

There is this extremely hilarious scene in Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan . Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Dharmajan during an exam in their school days open their question paper and see the questions.Their expressions change and “Pramadhavanam” music starts in the background. Nadhirshah’s strength is that he sticks to his roots and does not miss on any opportunity […]
