Review: Rajamma @ Yahoo is lacklustre

Review: Rajamma @ Yahoo is lacklustre

Rajamma @ Yahoo leaves the viewer confused, writes Paresh C Palicha. If the title of a film could guarantee its success, Rajamma @ Yahoo will be a top grosser, thanks to its curiosity value. Directed by Reghu Rama Varma, the film tells an age-old story of two brothers orphaned at a young age. Scriptwriter M Sindhuraj tries to pad it up but his efforts yield lacklustre results. Rajamma (Kunchacko Boban) and Yahoo (Asif Ali) are lovable louts and live life as the men in Malayalam movies do ..., 1 week ago

The cast makes Anarkali worthwhile

Anarkali is a mixture of old and new world of storytelling, Paresh C Palicha If you have ever wondered why love stories do not go out of fashion, the Malayalam film Anarkali may provide the answer. Written and directed by Sachy, one half of the writer duo Sachy and Sethu who parted ways a few years back, it is a mixture of old and new world of storytelling. Added to it is the charming performance of Prithviraj, well supported by Biju Menon and the ensemble cast. Shanthanu (Prithviraj) ...

Review: Kanal is average

Kanal turns out to be an average effort even though Mohanlal does his best to salvage it, says Paresh C Palicha. 'Every end has an old beginning,' says the tagline of Mohanlal's new film Kanal, directed by M Padmakumar. The question is: Does it have anything else to keep the viewer interested? S Suresh Babu's script tackles the economic meltdown in the Gulf countries and how it affects Malayalees working there. After a brief introduction to some victims of the recession, the story ...

Review: Rani Padmini entertains

Rima Kallingal and Manju Warrier give powerhouse performances in Rani Padmini, raves Paresh C Palicha. Director Ashiq Abu takes up the gamble of making a film with no male superstar. Rani Padmini is a film made with his wife Rima Kallingal and Manju Warrier in the title roles. They play two contrasting women brought together by fate. Rani (Rima Kallingal) is tomboyish and ready to take up cudgels against anyone to prove a point. Padmini is an introvert. Rani has grown up in Delhi without ...

Review: Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi disappoints

Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi is a tiring watch, warns Paresh C Palicha. We have seen many variants of the David v/s Goliath story and Anil Radhakrishnan Menon’s latest venture Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi joins the list. Nature-loving David takes on a Goliath kind of multi-national corporation, which is hell bent on shaving off hectares of forest land and looting the resources there. This premise holds a lot of promise but interest starts to wane once the story unfolds.

Review: Pathemaari is worth a watch

Pathemaari brings Mammootty back to his brilliant form, writes Paresh C Palicha. We have seen many Malayalam movies, where the family's eldest son/daughter shoulders the responsibilities and sacrifices his/her own life. We see the story play out again in Salim Ahamed's Pathemaari, where Mammootty plays the eldest son of a poor family who goes to the Gulf in the early 1980s in an unauthorised way. But what works in the film’s favour is its treatment and Mammootty's performance.

Review: Oraalppokkam is disturbingly impressive

Malayalam films Oraalppokkam is open to interpretation and therein lies its appeal, says Paresh C Palicha.The independent cinema movement, currently being revived in Kerala, has found admirable support in efforts to release fresh, pathbreaking films in government-owned theatres and multiplexes. Oraalppokkam is the latest independent venture to make it to theatres this week. Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s debut won him the State Award for Best Director.It is difficult to bracket ...

Review: Kohinoor is exhausting

Kohinoor lacks the sparkle, feels Paresh C Palicha. We hoped for exciting stuff when youngsters like director Vinay Govind and actor Asif Ali got together for Kohinoor but it turned out to be an exhausting watch. The film is about a diamond heist in a small town garment store, carried out by a gang of thieves who have been assembled to accomplish this task. They don't know each other so there is every scope of misunderstanding, suspicion and treachery. The year is 1988, the year when the ...

Review: Njan Samvidhanam Cheyyum is tacky

Balachandra Menon has lost his touch with Njan Samvidhanam Cheyyum, writes Paresh C Palicha. Digital technology has made film-making so easy that anyone with a decent cell phone and internet connection can aspire to be a filmmaker. Veteran actor-director Balachandra Menon, however, would like us to believe that things have not changed and breaking into this field is an arduous task even today. Njan Samvidhanam Cheyyum is the story of a middle-aged father who decides that he will direct a ...

Review: Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam is brilliant

SuSu Sudhi Vathmeekam handles the subject of physical limitations judiciously without trying to manipulate a viewer’s emotions, writes Paresh C Palicha. We do not have a culture of making biopics on people living with physical or mental impairments as Hollywood does. But director Ranjith Sankar steps into that space with SuSu Sudhi Vathmeekam, with Jayasurya playing Sudhi. Sudhi is inspired by one of Ranjith’s colleague and friend from his software engineering days. He had ...
