I love me malayalam movie review

The curiosity of the audience rose to new heights when it was disclosed that B. Unnikrishnan and his entire team was ready to bring out another film to their success. This venture had created many murmurs among the people, especially with a shocking title, ‘I love me’. We all love ourselves, which is what the basic nature of the human beings ought to be. Very few of us are saints who love others more than ourselves. Hence, it was very interesting to note that the director would choose such a film and exploit such a story. However, the result was not as promising as the title. B. Unnikrishnan along with his team failed to make people realize that the theme of the movie was loving oneself or something like that. Hence, this was the reason behind the failure. Although the plot of the movie started off pretty well, the team saw their first major flaw in creating proper tension during the twists in the story. The lost control of them as the movie progressed and this created complete chaos in the story. Thus, all the enthusiasm of the audience began to die down as soon as they thought something was going to happen now. The team has failed to delve deep into the story and has not managed to handle the climaxes well. The director seemed to have worked very hard in creating a story with such vigor, but all that remains is hopelessness at the end of it. Even when the movie had ended, people wonder why it was titled so. The characters of the movie did not have any feel of narcissism or anything even close to that. The characters played their roles well, but the story being the major issue it did not create a good impact.

Verdict: Below Average

Rating: 2/5

Da Thadiya malayalam movie Review

Aashiq Abu’s latest film Da Thadiya deals with lives of the Thadiyans. The director has based the story upon the basic idea that the people of today’s world are extremely curious to know about anything that is unknown. Anything abnormal or out of the blue is seen as a source of laughter or mirth. So, the director in this movie has gone on to display that there are a lot of untold sadness and misery behind the ever smiling faces of the Thadiyans.

The script of the movie has been written by Abhilash Kumar, Dileep Nair and Shyam Pushkar. They have yet again proved their excellent and moving style of writing, just like they did with their first script Salt & pepper. The story of the movie has not been complicated much. Yet even without a twisted tale in their path the makers of the movie have brought out a film which is going to influence the audience and bring out their inner emotions.

The film sees debutant Shekhar Menon, whose performance is worth admiring. He has incorporated greater flexibility and is enough to mesmerize the audience. Other actors like Sreenath Bhasi, Ann Augustine and Nivin Pauly have also performed very well and have done justice to their respective roles. The story of the film is so strong that it is enough to put a huge impact on the audience. There were certain elements in the story like the motto of their party being ‘Prakasham Parakkatte’ is pretty interesting and keeps one attracted to the screen. Shyju Khalid is another performer whose ability to lock us up to the screens is worth mentioning. The editing of the moving is another positive part, which smoothly reveals the chapters of the film one after the other without creating any sense of confusion in the audience’s mind.

Verdict: Good as a family movie

Rating: 3.25/5

REVIEW

After a series of flop movies Mega star Mamooty is back again to reload his draining image with the Movie “Face to Face” directed by “V.M vinu”. Face to Face is a malayalam mystery thriller film starring Mamooty,Roma Asrani ,Ragini Dewedi etc..
The movie is conveying the story of a police officer C.I Balachandran(Mamooty) who has several blackmark in his track record because of his high temper and harshness.The main theme of the movie is an investigation to find the culprit who murdered a strong political leader’s son and the central role C.I Balachandran will get accused for the same.The charge of encounter will be given to SP Ramdas (Siddique) and at the end Ramdas comes with a conclusion that Balachandran is the culprit .The later part of the movie deals with how Balachandran is proving his innocence and how he trap the real murderers .Till the interval everything is really thrilling and the scene just before the interval is set to make the audience charged ,Thus the first half ends with full of thrills and confusions.
But the Second half of the movie seemed to be a disappointing one because the director included some family stuffs in to the script in order to get attraction from family audience.The second half depicts many family and social issues the world is facing today but the fact is that because of all those stuffs audience may have a feel that whether the director had forgotten the main core of the movie. The same spoiled the rating earned by the first half. The only merit of second half is that it communicates several social issues that the younger generation faces today and about the climax ,it was just an average one.
While observing the movie from start to end it is just an average one which doesn’t have any new plot.The script by the new comer Manoj Payyanoor seemed to be promising in the first half but failed in the second half.Looking in to other parts of the movie like music,cinematography etc…everything except the music seemed to be fine especially the cinematography by Ajayan.
Coming to the performance side mamooty and siddique played their role very brilliantly and the four new comers Gautham, Rishikesh, Rohit and Binoy were decent but the charecters of Roma Asrani ,Ragini Dewedi doesn’t hand nothing much to do and the others were just ok.

Rating : 2.5/5

Verdict : Just an Average movie , Recommended for one time watch

Theevram malayalam movie review

After ‘Second Show’ and ‘Ustad Hotel’, both of which were hits on screen, the hot actor Dulqar Salman has chosen to be experimental in his upcoming movie Theevram. The story is one which revolves around revenge. There is a big change in the narrative style of the story. It will hook the interest of the audience immediately. It engages their interest right from the time of its commencement. Dulqar plays the role of an ambitious young music director, Harshavardhan. He is a very lonely person and takes piano lessons to earn his living. However, deep within he is hatching a plan to seek revenge from someone who has tremendous damage to his life.

To bring his plans to action he kidnaps an auto driver and keeps him in the building cellar. He makes his condition miserable giving him pain little after little. The entire story revolves around the basic question-what is the reason for his actions?

The movie has been directed by the newcomer Roopesh Peethambaran. He has managed to create an ambience of suspense all throughout the movie. However, as the movie progresses it seems to be too lengthy and tests the patience of the audience. There are hardly any punchlines or effective shots of the hero of the movie. The story was effective enough. However, the screenplay ruins it all very slowly. Latter shots are extremely ill-handled, and they come out very poor on the screen.

Dalqar however has shown commendable performance with excellent emotional use in the scene. Audience will be impressed whatsoever. His charismatic performance will keep them engaged for a bit of the film. However the execution of the movie is bad. The acting of the new heroine Shikha Nair is not up to the mark and does not match up to the expectations.

Verdict: Potential script, but poor execution

Rating: 2.5/5
