Review: Kumbasaaram is an overdose of drama

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 ..., 1 month ago

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. Prithviraj, the young actor tried to break the mould of the conventional cop in the film Mumbai Police (2013), where he had to work hard to hide the vulnerable side of a super cop. 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: Ivan Maryadaraman is torture

Malayalam film Ivan Maryadaraman may not work for grown up film goers, warns Paresh C Palicha.If a Dileep film is playing in theatres, it definitely is vacation time in Kerala.It is well-known that the actor's onscreen antics make children drag their parents to see the film, several times in some cases.  Needless to say, such films are a mainstay of Dileep’s stardom. This time around, it is Ivan Maryadaraman, said to be made after formally buying rights of a Telugu film and the ...

Review: 32aam Adhyayam 23aam Vaakyam is disappointing

32aam Adhyayam 23aam Vaakyam is a disappointing affair because of the careless handling of the subject, says Paresh C Palicha. Twenty-three is an ominous number because blood takes 23 seconds to circulate in the human body, there are 23 male chromosomes and 23 female chromosomes in our body and most dangerous reason being half of 46 is 23 (do not question why because no one will have a logical explanation). This is what 32aam Adhyayam 23aam Vaakyam tries to prove by making you sit in ...

Review: Premam is a winner all the way

With Premam, director Alphonse Putheran proves that he has the knack of presenting themes that have blockbuster written all over, writes Paresh C Palicha. Love has many hues and director Alphonse Puthren tries to explore many hues of love in his new film Premam, starring Nivin Pauly. It follows matters of the heart of a young fellow named George David from his adolescence to his late 20s.

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: Oru Second Class Yatra is a second class journey

Director duo  Jexson Antony and Rejis Antony did obviously did not want the title to be reflective in the film but somehow that’s just what the film has to offer says Paresh C Palicha. Oru Second Class Yatra is a small film going by its star cast, budget and crew. It is just around one hour and 45 minutes long. Vineeth Sreenivasan and Chemban Vinod Jose play leading roles. The film is scripted and directed by Jexson Antony and Rejis Antony. Two convicts are being ...

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 ...
