Review: Kumbasaaram is an overdose of drama

Kumbasaaram is an over the top which has nothing new to offer, says Paresh C Palicha. Malayalam actor Jayasurya who entered films after doing mimicry on stage has been trying to get validation as an intense actor for the last couple of years. He tried playing varied characters and even adopted different looks. But, box office success and critical acclaim continue to elude him. In his new film Kumbasaaram, directed by Aneesh Anwar, he plays a brooding auto rickshaw driver with a ... Rediff.com, 18 hours ago

Review: Nee-Na is impressive

Nee-Na is another brilliant effort by director Lal Jose, says Paresh C Palicha. In Nee-Na, director Lal Jose tries to analyse the impact of drinking on an individual and the people around that individual, and he does it well. Neena (Deepti Sati) and Nalini (Ann Augustine) are poles apart. Neena detests rules and traditions, while Nalini considers them very important. The one thing they have in common is that they both love Nalini’s husband Vinay Panikkar (Vijay Babu). Neena is an ...

Review: Lailaa O Lailaa fails miserably

Lailaa O Lailaa is a tacky film that wasted the resources at its disposal, writes Paresh C Palicha. Why is there no retirement age for people in creative fields? One asks this question after watching Lailaa O Lailaa, directed by veteran Joshiy. It is such a tacky piece of filmmaking that it's obvious the director should be thinking of hanging up his megaphone, or at least taking a sabbatical. The lead pair of Mohanlal and Amala Paul does their best to rekindle the magic of Run Baby ...

This time around, it is Ivan Maryadaraman, said to be made after formally buying rights of a Telugu film and the ...

Review: 100 Days of Love is a waste of time

100 Days of Love leaves a lot to be desired as a serious love story, says Paresh C Palicha. 100 Days of Love by first time director Jenuse Mohamed (son of director Kamal) is meant to be a spoof on conventional love stories. The lead pair of Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menon is named after veteran actors of yesteryear, Balan K Nair and Sheela. There are other instances of love stories of the past being joked about, including the climax at the railway station. This love story has a ...

Review: Swargathekkaal Sundaram is avoidable

Swargathekkaal Sundaram is one more addition to the heap of films that leave hardly anything to be remembered, says Paresh C Palicha. If you think that the so called ‘new- gen’ themes have trickled out of Malayalam cinema, the new film Swargathekkaal Sundaram will prove you wrong. Directed by newcomer Manoj Aravindakshan, it focuses on the happenings in a liquor bar, telling the stories of its owners, its employees and some of its patrons. One heartening thing about the film is ...

Review:Mammootty fails to impress in Bhaskar The Rascal

Bhaskar The Rascal teams up two stalwarts - Mammootty and director Siddique, but we suggest you take out a DVD of their earlier movies if you want to enjoy their work, writes Paresh C Palicha. Children seem to be ever present in Malayalam films these days, not because they are central to the plot, but to lend credibility to the ageing superstars who are on the wrong side of 40 but whose names on the marquee still fill theatres. These actors have to be shown as happily married or single ...

Review: Oru Vadakkan Selfie is an enjoyable film

The narrative has some gaping holes, but one can ignore them as the subject is not dealt in a serious or profound manner, says Paresh C Palicha Vineeth Sreenivasan (son of actor-writer-director Sreenivasan) made his debut in films as a singer, then went on to act and then write and direct. In Oru Vadakkan Selfie he is writer, lyricist, singer and actor. The director is his long time associate G Prajith. Vineeth shares the screen with his trusted friends Nivin Pauly and Aju ...
