Review: This Rasam is very bland

Even super star Mohanlal can't salvage the disaster that is Malayalam film Rasam, says Paresh C Palicha.Rasam, directed by veteran filmmaker Rajeevnath, has little going for it.

Review: Aamayum Muyalum is disappointing

Rather than watching Aamayum Muyalum, the DVDs of Priyadarshan’s old films would be a better option, says Paresh C Palicha.

No one knows this better than Priyadarshan, who has been peddling blockbuster Malayalam films in Hindi for the last 20 years. Sometimes he gets into reverse mode and remakes old Hindi ...
