Review: Naku Penta Naku Taka disappoints

Review: Naku Penta Naku Taka disappoints

Naku Penta Naku Taka is a disappointment considering the promise it carried, writes Paresh C Palicha. Naku Penta Naku Taka, the Malayalam film directed by Vayalar Madhavan Kutty with Indrajith and Bhama in the lead tries to cash in on the cliched impressions of Africa.  Written by Jeyamohan, the Tamil-Malayalam writer who has been very prolific in churning out scripts for Malayalam films in the recent times, begins the story interestingly by showing a naive young girl Shubha ..., 1 month ago

Review: Bangalore Days is a highly recommended watch

Malayalam film Bangalore Days boasts of fine performances, says Paresh C Palicha.Bangalore Days, written and directed by Anjali Menon, stars many young stars of Malayalam cinema. But, surprisingly, the story is not a romantic one in the conventional sense. It's about three cousins in their twenties, who dream of taking off for Bangalore and having a blast when they grow up. Krishnan aka Kuttan (Nivin Pauly), Arjun aka Aju (Dulquer Salmaan) and Divya (Nazriya Nazim) realise their childhood dream ...

Review: Mr Fraud does not entertain

Only the hardcore Mohanlal fans will like Mr Fraud which is otherwise an uninteresting film, says Paresh C Palicha. Once upon a time, Malayalam cinema prided itself on its content and actors became popular due to their histrionic prowess. Then there began an era of superstars, where actors gained prominence and the stories started revolving around them. Directors focused on the mannerisms and dialogue delivery of the stars since these were what supposedly attracted the fans. Mr. Fraud, written ...

Review: Law Point has only low points

Law Point is a lethargic long drive with many low points, says Paresh C Palicha. In director Lijin Jose’s new film Law Point Kunchacko Boban plays a hotshot lawyer, Sathya. He whizzes around in an imported MUV, reaches the courthouse dramatically when the defence is called to make its argument and saves his client from going to jail for raping his minor domestic help. He charges Rs 1 crore for this case. He is sitting in a bar in the evening celebrating his victory when he is ...

Review: Mosayile Kuthirameenukal is worth a watch

Mosayile Kuthirameenukal is visually enchanting, so watch it in spite of some flaws, says Paresh C Palicha. Mosayile Kuthirameenukal by first-time director Ajith Pillai settles into cohesive storytelling after a shaky beginning and ends up being quite good. Asif Ali and Sunny Wayne are the leads. The film starts with Alex (Asif Ali) telling us his sad story sitting in the darkness of a drainage pipe. He is the scion of a large and rich Christian family, whose male members take pride in ...

Review: Masala Republic is a shabby film

Masala Republic is one of the tackiest films made in recent times, says Paresh C Palicha. Directed by debutant director Visakh G S, Masala Republic is a satirical entertainer on the ban of pan masala and how it affects the Migrant labourers in Kerala.  From tending the garden to waiting tables in restaurants to working at construction sites and sawmills the migrant labourers do everything, but they are marginalised and are voiceless politically. Although the plot sounded as ...

Review: Vegam doesn't have a soul

A film like Vegam would succeed if the viewer has someone to root for, but nothing of that sort appears in the story, says Paresh C Palicha.  How many times can you see a film about two youngsters struggling to make ends meet, then in desperation making a fast buck by taking the wrong path and suffer because of that? At least half-a-dozen successful Malayalam films have used this plot. New director Anil Kumar K G tries to cash in on this formula in his film Vegam. Two friends, the fair ...

Review: Koothara is an average entertainer

Koothara in colloquial terms means something despicable. Luckily, this film does not live up to its title, writes Paresh C Palicha. Three boys meeting for the first time in the hostel room of an Engineering college; does it ring a bell? Yes that is the beginning of 3 Idiots, the Hindi film that achieved a cult status in Indian cinema.  And, it inspired many filmmakers to copy the same formula expecting to achieve the same success. The latest in the list is director Srinath Rajendran ...

Review: How Old Are You is impressive

How Old Are You is a good watch not just because it is the comeback film of Manju Warrier, but also because it has got a good story to tell, writes Paresh C Palicha. “Who puts the expiry date on a woman’s dream?” it is one of the pertinent questions that How Old Are You asks. Directed by Rosshan Andrrews, the comeback vehicle of Manju Warrier tells the story of a woman who faces a personal crisis. She has devoted herself to looking after her husband and her child, ...
