Review: Mammootty's Munnariyippu is worth a watch

Munnariyippu is one of the most intriguing films made in recent times, says Paresh C Palicha. Munnariyippu, means ‘caution’ or ‘warning’, but the warning is not about some shocking or nerve jangling event or occurrence. Cameraman-director Venu has a different agenda in this film that stars Mammootty in the lead. Anjali Arakkal (Aparna Gopinath), a freelance journalist, earns her living by ghost writing autobiographies of the rich and famous. Her latest client is the ... Rediff.com, 4 days ago

Review: Manglish is a typical Mammootty film

Manglish is a typical star vehicle that does not deserve a critical dissection, writes Paresh C Palicha. Until recently, Malayalam cinema was overly dependent on superstars, with directors developing scripts revolving around them. ‘New generation’ films brought in fresh blood and the frequency of super star films is now down to a trickle. Manglish starring Mammootty, however, sticks to the old practice and revolves around the persona of the super star. Director Salam Bappu ...

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 ...

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: Njan Steve Lopez is a bold attempt

The film has a problem with pacing and lags a few times but the director uses these moments to add meat to the characters, says Paresh C Palicha. Njan Steve Lope has been made with no commercial considerations in mind and does not cater to any specific section of the audience. It is directed by noted cinematographer Rajeev Ravi, whose vision about the life of his characters is of paramount importance. The film revolves around Steve (Farhaan Faasil), a youngster whose life is all about ...

Review: Apothecary could have been better

Apothecary does not have any subtlety, everything that the director wishes to convey has been overtly pronounced by the actors through their dialogues, writes Paresh C Palicha. The medical profession has always been a fertile ground for filmmakers to plough their stories, maybe because every human emotion seems to be amplified in a hospital. When we are speaking of dilemma, then what can be more conflicting than life and death. Director Madhav Ramadasan who made an impressive début ...

Review: Vikramadityan entertains in parts

Anoop Menon and Joy Mathew along with Dulquar Salman and Namitha have given a decent performance in Vikramadityan, says Paresh C Palicha. The new trend in the Malayalam film industry is to title a film by adding the names of the main characters. Director Lal Jose has named his new film Vikramadityan, after the two leading men, Vikraman (Unni Mukundan) and Adityan (Dulquer Salmaan). The script by Dr Iqbal Kuttippuram has resurrected a subject that was popular five or six decades ...

Review: Hi I'm Tony is just another thriller film

Hi I'm Tony tries to experiment, but it’s just another thriller that depends on its actors, blood and gore, says Paresh C Palicha. Lal has played a psychologically deviant character many a time since he made his acting debut as the Shakespearean villain Iago in Kaliyattam (1997), Jayaraaj’s adaptation of Othello. He attributes this casting to his rough looks and a voice to go with it. His son, director Lal Jr, has made use of this image by casting his father in his film Hi I'm ...

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 ...
