Best Malayalam Movies of 2017 - Year End Review
2017 is the year, in which many hyped movies turned out to be passable entertainers while some unexpected ones gave us unforgettable experience. Here is the list of best Malayalam movies released this year.
1. Angamaly Diaries
A group of grimy people, pork business and gang rivalry. Writer Chemban Vinod Jose and director Lijo Jose Pellissery have brought these things together and made an extraordinary movie, Angamaly Diaries. We might not feel like watching a movie, but, like, living as a native of Angamaly, while watching this movie. Vijay Babu, the producer, is the man who deserves a big round of applause for making a brave step like this.
2. Take Off
Take Off is, undoubtedly, one of the best survival movies ever produced in Indian film industry that can match with any Hollywood movie of same genre. Eclectic performance from the lead actress Parvathy is the major thing that made the movie something outstanding. Focused story telling method adopted by debutant Mahesh Narayan by avoiding some clichéd scenes, which can usually be seen in survival movies, deserves a hats off.
3. Thondimuthalum Driksaakshiyum
Dileesh Pothan, who amused us with Maheshinte Prathikaaram last year, has again proved that he can entertain people and achieve box-office success without those gimmicks that can be seen in so-called commercial movies. Extraordinary performances delivered by actors, especially Fahadh Faasil and Suraj Venjaramoodu, took Thondimuthalum Driksaakshiyum to the next level.
Some really good movies may have went unnoticed because of poor pre-release marketing. But, in the case of Parava, the DQ factor helped Soubin Shahir a lot to clear that hurdle quite easily. The debut attempt of Soubin as a director was purely outstanding in almost every aspect including scripting, casting and, obviously, marketing. Lead characters played by newbies Amal Shah and Govind V. Pai did their part brilliantly.
Mayaanadhi is a near flawless attempt from Aashiq Abu, a really talented director who disappointed us recently with his last few movies like Rani Padmini and Gangster. Mayaanadhi is one of the best romantic movies ever witnessed by the Malayalam film industry in the recent past. The performances delivered Tovino Thomas and Aishwarya Lekshmi were so natural and this helped Aashiq a lot to tell the story effectively.
6. Varnyathil Aashanka
Eventhough Varnyathil Aashanka did not do well at box-office, on the basis of quality it was an excellent movie. Actor turned filmmaker Siddharth Bharathan who proved his class with his debut movie itself has again experimented the comedy genre and this time with a satirical approach. Stellar performances by Suraj Venjaramoodu and Kunchacko Boban made this movie much more realistic and appealing.
No one would expect nothing more than a brainless comedy movie when the makers of Kunjiramayanam announces a new movie. But, Godha, directed by Basil Joseph, was something many of our talented filmmakers couldn’t even dream off. Godha was a fine pudding made with the perfect blend of humorous and serious moments. Wamiqa Gabbi has made her Mollywood debut memorable with this movie that never give you a single boring moment.
