Review: Kumbasaaram is an overdose of drama

Kumbasaaram is an over the top which has nothing new to offer, says Paresh C Palicha.

Review: Ivide is an average entertainer

Ivide tries to tackle a lot of things but ends up satisfying none, says Paresh C Palicha. The scope of a police story in Malayalam cinema was very limited until a few years back.

Now, he tries to be a ‘next gen’ cop in Ivide, helmed by the National Award winning director, Shyamaprasad. Here he plays ...

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 ...

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.

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.
