Review: Manglish is a typical Mammootty film

Review: Manglish is a typical Mammootty film

Manglish is a typical star vehicle that does not deserve a critical dissection, writes Paresh C Palicha. Until recently, Malayalam cinema was overly dependent on superstars, with directors developing scripts revolving around them. ‘New generation’ films brought in fresh blood and the frequency of super star films is now down to a trickle. Manglish starring Mammootty, however, sticks to the old practice and revolves around the persona of the super star. Director Salam Bappu ..., 19 hours ago

Review: Naku Penta Naku Taka disappoints

Naku Penta Naku Taka is a disappointment considering the promise it carried, writes Paresh C Palicha. Naku Penta Naku Taka, the Malayalam film directed by Vayalar Madhavan Kutty with Indrajith and Bhama in the lead tries to cash in on the cliched impressions of Africa.  Written by Jeyamohan, the Tamil-Malayalam writer who has been very prolific in churning out scripts for Malayalam films in the recent times, begins the story interestingly by showing a naive young girl Shubha ...

Review: Bangalore Days is a highly recommended watch

Malayalam film Bangalore Days boasts of fine performances, says Paresh C Palicha.Bangalore Days, written and directed by Anjali Menon, stars many young stars of Malayalam cinema. But, surprisingly, the story is not a romantic one in the conventional sense. It's about three cousins in their twenties, who dream of taking off for Bangalore and having a blast when they grow up. Krishnan aka Kuttan (Nivin Pauly), Arjun aka Aju (Dulquer Salmaan) and Divya (Nazriya Nazim) realise their childhood dream ...

Review: Mr Fraud does not entertain

Only the hardcore Mohanlal fans will like Mr Fraud which is otherwise an uninteresting film, says Paresh C Palicha. Once upon a time, Malayalam cinema prided itself on its content and actors became popular due to their histrionic prowess. Then there began an era of superstars, where actors gained prominence and the stories started revolving around them. Directors focused on the mannerisms and dialogue delivery of the stars since these were what supposedly attracted the fans. Mr. Fraud, written ...

Review: Law Point has only low points

Law Point is a lethargic long drive with many low points, says Paresh C Palicha. In director Lijin Jose’s new film Law Point Kunchacko Boban plays a hotshot lawyer, Sathya. He whizzes around in an imported MUV, reaches the courthouse dramatically when the defence is called to make its argument and saves his client from going to jail for raping his minor domestic help.

Review: Mosayile Kuthirameenukal is worth a watch

Mosayile Kuthirameenukal is visually enchanting, so watch it in spite of some flaws, says Paresh C Palicha. Mosayile Kuthirameenukal by first-time director Ajith Pillai settles into cohesive storytelling after a shaky beginning and ends up being quite good. Asif Ali and Sunny Wayne are the leads. The film starts with Alex (Asif Ali) telling us his sad story sitting in the darkness of a drainage pipe. He is the scion of a large and rich Christian family, whose male members take pride in ...

Review: Vikramadityan entertains in parts

Anoop Menon and Joy Mathew along with Dulquar Salman and Namitha have given a decent performance in Vikramadityan, says Paresh C Palicha. The new trend in the Malayalam film industry is to title a film by adding the names of the main characters. Director Lal Jose has named his new film Vikramadityan, after the two leading men, Vikraman (Unni Mukundan) and Adityan (Dulquer Salmaan). The script by Dr Iqbal Kuttippuram has resurrected a subject that was popular five or six decades ...

Review: Hi I'm Tony is just another thriller film

Hi I'm Tony tries to experiment, but it’s just another thriller that depends on its actors, blood and gore, says Paresh C Palicha. Lal has played a psychologically deviant character many a time since he made his acting debut as the Shakespearean villain Iago in Kaliyattam (1997), Jayaraaj’s adaptation of Othello. He attributes this casting to his rough looks and a voice to go with it. His son, director Lal Jr, has made use of this image by casting his father in his film Hi I'm ...

Review: Vegam doesn't have a soul

A film like Vegam would succeed if the viewer has someone to root for, but nothing of that sort appears in the story, says Paresh C Palicha.  How many times can you see a film about two youngsters struggling to make ends meet, then in desperation making a fast buck by taking the wrong path and suffer because of that? At least half-a-dozen successful Malayalam films have used this plot. New director Anil Kumar K G tries to cash in on this formula in his film Vegam. Two friends, the fair ...
