Kammatipaadam is a gangster movie with a difference and a must watch, for sure, writes Paresh C Palicha. Some people have the ability to make something sublime out of something mundane, and director Rajeev Ravi has such a track record whether he was working as a cinematographer or as a director. His latest directorial venture Kammatipaadam with Dulquer Salmaan in the lead further substantiates this point. Written by P. Balachandran, the film tells the story of a few youngsters getting ...

There is excitement every time Nivin Pauly is on screen, says Paresh C Palicha. Vineeth Sreenivasan's Jacobinte Swargarajayam proves one thing: he is a versatile filmmaker. His latest directorial venture is a family drama and unlike what he had done in the past. This film has a middle aged Renji Panicker playing the title role, and his friend and current heartthrob Nivin Pauly plays the second fiddle to the central character and it shows the director’s guts to make what he ...Rediff.com, 2 months ago
The social comment in Sanalkumar Sasidharan's Ozhivudivasathe Kali could well make it a success at the box office, feels Paresh C Palicha.

The only novelty in School Bus is the much publicised casting of Kunchakko Boban as the cop investigating the case of the missing child, writes Paresh Palicha. There is a section of people who believe that the primary purpose of a film is to convey a message, everything else is secondary. Writer duo Bobby-Sanjay belong to this tribe; their films always make an effort to drive viewers onto the righteous path. A major chunk of their work is in collaboration with director Rosshan Andrrews. Their ...Rediff.com, 1 month ago
Leela may carry the buzz that it deals with a controversial subject, but there is nothing objectionable in the film, says Paresh C Palicha. Director Ranjith had announced Leela, based on a short story by Unni R, a long time ago and the names of many actors made the rounds to play the main lead: a complex character named Kuttiyappan. But the project took off the ground only recently with Biju Menon, who has created a niche for himself by playing the comic second lead. It seemed to be a ...Rediff.com, 2 months ago
King Liar's story is wafer thin and the effort to hold the viewer's interest does not work beyond a point, feels Paresh C Palicha. The legendary team of Siddique and Lal reunited after two decades with King Liar, and roped in Dileep as well, and the outcome was supposed to be exceptional. Lal has directed the film, Siddique has penned the story, and the script is credited to both. Dileep plays the lead, and co-produces the film too. Unfortunately, the film disappoints.
