Malayalam Movie Reviews

 

Charlie

3 Stars

Review:

What was the hype about it?? Parvathy looked so ugly and untidy! A typical feel-good movie which never happens in real life. State award for this? Seriously? I can’t stop laughing!

Adi Kapyare Koottamani

4 Stars

Review:

Good comedy. But kind of amateurish. I was wondering how they were going to conclude the movie. The ending was good. But later on I think they were a bit confused.

 

Puthiya Niyamam

4 Stars

Review:

Ok kind of movie. Reminded me of the series Crime Patrol that comes on Sony TV! The direction looks a bit ameturish. And also it was a bit boring in between.

 

Amen

5 Stars

Review:

A classic movie. Old Kerala is shown astonishingly realistically!

 

1983

5 Stars

Review:

Good movie on pursuing your passions.

 

Jo and the Boy

3 Stars

Review:

I guess only women can relate to this movie. But even then the script is weak. I didn’t expect this from Manju Warrier.

 

Rajamma @ Yahoo

2 Stars

Review:

Bad movie! I wonder their parents forgot to name their almost 10 year old sons before passing away, that they had to call themselves ‘Rajamma’ and ‘Yahoo’!

 

Ennu Ninte Moideen

5 Stars

Review:

An epic but tragic love story. The old Kerala has been captured perfectly. The insecurities due difficulties in communication during those times. In today’s world of smart phones it is so different!

 

Anarkali

3 Stars

Review:

A weak attempt in love story from Prithviraj.

Ok kind of comedy movie.

 

Pathemaari

5 Stars

Review:

Very touching movie. Realistic acting by Mamootty.

 

Salt Mango Tree

3 Stars

Review:

A little bit interesting movie. Biju Menon was good. But the heroine and her ‘dubber’ was so irritating! There was no message in the movie. They said they should allow the child to choose his own path and then they also showed that he got admission in a big school!

 

ABCD (American Born Confused Desi)

5 Stars

Review:

Great effort by a newcomer director! The characters were so realistic! Very funny movie. But second half was a bit boring with politics and all included.

 

Mumbai Police

A crime thriller of international standards. Great acting by Prithviraj! Wonderful direction!

 

Ustad Hotel

5 Stars

Review:

A very entertaining and emotional movie.

 

Urumbukal Urangarilla (Ants don’t sleep)

4 Stars

Review:

Good movie on ethical and non-ethical thieves.

 

Rani Padmini

2 Stars

Review:

Bad movie! It was a plot that could have been handled very nicely. Nothing is clear in the movie. Where they are currently, where they are going. Very shabby direction! I guess I’m losing trust in Manju Warrier now!

 

Thinkal Muthal Velli Vare (Monday to Friday)

3 Stars

Review:

I am basically a great fan of Rimi Tomy and her talk shows. But I hated her in this!

 

Malarvadi Arts Club

4 Stars

Review:

Something missing in the movie. But it touches the heart. Nivin Pauly is clearly the main lead of the movie!

 

Life of Josutty

Review:

The movie is like a serial! Very depressing and dull. I didn’t expect this from the director of ‘Drishyam’!

 

Kohinoor

4 Stars

Review:

Ok kind of movie. Asif Ali looks like he is not interested in acting. Aju Varghese has become real fat!

 

Ammayane Sathyam (In mother’s name)

5 Stars

Review:

5 stars only for Annie’s acting. She acted like a pro even though she’s only 15 and a newcomer!

 

Azhakiya Raavanan (Beautiful Devil)

5 Stars

Review:

Great acting by everyone.

 

Mazhayethum Munpe (Before the rains)

5 Stars

 

Review:

A classic movie! Loved Annie’s acting in it.

 

Lukka Chuppi (Hide n Seek)

3 Stars

Review:

Okay kind of movie. But the ending is not proper! Seemed like the director didn’t know how to end the movie!

 

Spadikam (A precious stone)

5 Stars

Review:

Great movie! The story is relevant in every community, in every country all over the world! This movie is dedicated to all fathers who think only their field of interest is the best and should be followed by his descendants too! Seems this movie has been made by someone who has experienced it first hand.

Mohanlal nails it! This movie worked because of its dialogues. I loved it!

 

Thattathin Marayathu (Behind the veil)

5 Stars

Review:

A great musical love story. Kudos to Vineeth Sreenivasan! He’s pioneered the first actual (Bollywood style) love story in Malayalam. Great dialogues. Good comedy.

Everything is good except the heroine! She doesn’t match the character at all! Great musical.

 

Aadu (Goat)

2 Stars

Review:

Bad movie! I couldn’t watch beyond interval. Poorly made script.

 

Lal Bahadur Shasthri

3 Stars

Review:

Weak script. Not so good movie. But Nedumudi did a different kind of role which was good. Heroine was wasted.

 

Om Shanti Oshana

4 Stars

Review:

Nice movie! A fairy-tale story. Nazriya is so pretty.

 

8th March

1 Star

Review:

Eww!! I couldn’t even watch 10 mins of the movie!

 

Koottathil Oral (One among the group)

5 Stars

Review:

Good film. There are only a handful of films that touches my heart as this. It shows a beautiful love story and a touching father-daughter relationship. The girl in the movie looks a bit like Divya Bharati.

 

Colour Balloon

4 Stars

Review:

Good movie on social issues, though it is predictable. The acting of other than protagonists are funny.

 

Acha Din (Good day)

2 Stars

Review:

Bad movie! How did they think they can caste Mamootty in the role of a North Indian immigrant! That is way too much. It was okay if proper care had been taken for the character. The direction is very shabby and careless. Looks like a children’s movie! Seems the story writer got up one morning and suddenly got the idea, wrote the story immediately and started filming in the afternoon! No depth to the story and characters.

 

Ayal Njanalla (That man is not me)

4 Stars

Review:

First half is boring. Second half is interesting.

 

Kunjiramayanam (Small Ramayana)

4 Stars

Review:

A different kind of approach. Good movie.

3 Stars

Review:

OK kind of movie. Nothing special.

 

Vikramadithyan (Vikram + Adithyan)

5 Stars

Review:

Very emotional movie. Great acting by Mamootty.

4 Stars

Review:

A funny movie.

 

Picket 43

4 Stars

Review:

A story about the border during war.

 

Oru Vadakkan Selfie (A North Selfie)

4 Stars

Review:

Nice movie. This is a movie where students who study professional courses without their interest can totally relate to!

 

Neram (Time)

5 Stars

Review:

Not much story in it. But quite entertaining.

 

Munnariyippu (Warning)

4 Stars

Review:

Good acting by Aparna. There is not much for Mamootty to do. But the twist at the end was really unexpected!

 

Ithihasa (History)

4 Stars

Review:

Great acting by Anusree. She is the star of the movie! But the hero not up to the mark! -1 only because of him.

 

Indian Rupee

4 Stars

Review:

Good movie on how to play with money!

 

Angry Babies

4 Stars

Review:

Nice movie. Bhavana looks really pretty.

 

Immanuel

4 Stars

Review:

Very relevant movie. This is what actually happens in the corporate world. I know being an ex-corporate employee.

Fahadh Fazil’s done a good job as evil boss.

 

Bangalore Days

5 Stars

Review:

A well-made movie. Very interesting sequences.

 

How Old Are You

5 Stars

Review:

A thought-provoking movie. Manju Warrier has made a great re-entrance. But she looked kind of dull in the movie. I expected something better. Kunchacko played an evil husband which is way different from his usual roles!

 

Mili

5 Stars

Review:

Very touching movie. The sensitive topic is realistically portrayed by the director!

 

Laila O Laila

3 Stars

Review:

It’s a funny movie.

 

Sapthamashree Thaskaraha

3 Stars

Review:

Not as interesting as the director’s first ‘North 24..’.

But there is a dialogue in the movie that touched me.

“These prisoners are people who have proven their talent in their own fields. In a way these prisons are full of creative people!”

 

32aam Adhyayam 23aam Vaakyam (Chapter 32 Verse 23)

3 Stars

Review:

Not a good movie. Something’s missing in the direction! The entire story is reversed in the last 20 mins and completely destroyed! Otherwise the beginning had looked promising. GP’s acting is not bad.

 

Oru Second Class Yatra (A Second Class Journey)

3 Stars

Review:

No life in the movie! Nedumudi looks awkward as the villain!

 

Arjunan Saakshi (Arjunan is Witness)

Copy of untitledxx

Review:

Well-made movie with not so great characters especially the villians! Gives a good message.

 

Alif

untitledxx

Review:

Nice movie. Great acting by Lena.

 

Nee-Na (Neena and Nalini)

Copy of untitledxx

Review:

That’s a good movie. Good attempt by Lal Jose. These kinds of subjects are usually destroyed in the hands of a director. But he kind of managed it well. The lead actress is not pretty. Ann Augustine is wasted.

 

Samrajyam II: Son of Alexander

Copy (3) of untitledxx

Review:

Wow!! What an utter flop movie! I couldn’t watch it beyond interval. They thought they can put the entire movie on Unni Mukundan’s shoulders and choose below average other actors, dialogues, direction etc!

 

Loham (The Yellow Metal)

Copy (2) of untitledxx

Review:

False promise from Mohanlal.

 

Love 24X7

Copy of untitledxx

Review:

The new actress is stone-faced. Did someone tell Dileep that reporters should have some hair falling on their foreheads? Because I have seen his same getup in ‘Calcutta news’ as well! Lena is wasted. Poor direction.
But some sequences of the current reporting world are funny and thought provoking.

 

Mayamohini

Copy (2) of untitledxx

Review:

Watched it thinking that Dileep never disappoints. But eeeww!! It is vulgar! It is 80% vulgarity and 20% comedy! The makeup is poor and disgusting.

 

Ivide (You are Here)

untitledxx

Review:

The movie talks about the current realities of American Life. Nivin Pauly has done a role very different from his usual ones and didn’t disappoint.

 

Premam (Love)

5 Stars

Review:

I don’t think Nivin is a great actor. But he’s got the looks which is rare in Malayalam movies.
The movie is a great innovative effort by director Puthren. He’s shown Nivin as a super-hero kind!

 

Double Barrel

2 Stars

Review:

Going for this movie was a mistake! I guess it was meant to be an innovative concept but it’s gone wrong! Swathi Reddy is wasted! Sunny Wayne is wasted! Others are just smiling and shooting. I didn’t find anything else in the movie!

 

Madhura Naranga (Sweet Lime)

3 Stars

Review:

Old school movie. Has nothing new to offer. The actress can’t act! She can only smile!

 

Utopiayile Rajavu (The king of Utopia)

2 Stars

Review:

Was sleeping throughout the movie! Lost interest when I watched the title song itself. So I don’t know what’s happened in the movie. What is bad about that song? Bad singing, bad cartoon graphics and bad song!!

 

Mariyam Mukku (Name of a place)

3 Stars

Review:

Good movie but might only appeal to those who can relate to it. It would have been good if the movie had ended with some very great miracle of Mother Mary.

 

Chirakodinja Kinavukal (Wing-broken Dreams)

1 Star

Review:

Poorly-made movie. Kunchacko looked really ugly when he painted himself black to play the villain!

 

Bhaskar the Rascal

3 Stars

Review:

Can watch Mamootty’s comedy.

 

She Taxi

4 Stars

Review:

Surprise comedy! Will laugh our hearts out!

 

Chandrettan Evideya (Where are you, Chandrettan?)

1 Star

Review:

Sense-less movie! Dileep again disappoints!

 

Njan (Me)

2 Stars

Review:

Dulquer proved he can’t handle serious roles.

 

Fireman

3 Stars

Review:

Good movie.

 

North 24 Kaatham (Kaatham – An old kind of distance measurement)

5 Stars

Review:

Well-made movie with innovative concept. Great acting by Fahad Faazil. Good attempt by director Radhakrishnan.
