Ottam Review: a lazily written and poorly directed movie

Posted by Web Desk on March 10, 2019

Soothrakkaran Review: a seriously outdated subject

Posted by Web Desk on March 9, 2019

Posted by Web Desk on February 22, 2019

Mr. & Ms. Rowdy Review: an average popcorn entertainer

Posted by Web Desk on February 22, 2019

Kodathi Samaksham Balan Vakeel Review: a passable one

Posted by Web Desk on February 21, 2019

The verbal praising of hero by other actors is something that is evidently there in almost all B Unnikrishnan movies. His new movie Kodathi Samaksham Balan Vakeel is one film where the same tactics get repeated again and with a layer of humor

Oru Adaar Love Review: content scarcity at its best

Posted by Web Desk on February 14, 2019

Some movies try to hide their inability to have some content by embedding sad realities at its very end. The pseudo-intellectual thought that tragedy is profound is applied in the latest Omar Lulu movie Oru Adaar Love. The movie that hardly has a

9 movie review: not really a fresh concept on its core

Posted by Web Desk on February 7, 2019

There is a lack of flexibility in the way Prithviraj has acted in some of his recent films. Movies like Ranam and Koode managed to give him characters that broke that tone but with 9 he goes back to his clichéd zone of emoting drama an

Lonappante Mammodisa Review: an updated Jayaram kind of film

Posted by Web Desk on February 1, 2019

Panchavarnathatha was the last Jayaram film that sort of received a fairly okay reception from the audience. Apart from that, every other movie done by the actor in the recent past was duds. Lonappante Mammodisa is one movie that I would is p

Posted by Web Desk on January 26, 2019

If you have ever felt that watching a movie is an easy thing when compared to making it, then I would recommend the movie Sakalakalashala to you. Because it is one movie that is mocking at you throughout its narrative for opting to watch it. With

Irupathiyonnam Noottandu Review: an extremely clumsy one

Posted by Web Desk on January 25, 2019

Praana Review: a technically sound film with mediocre script

Posted by Web Desk on January 20, 2019

There is a basic agenda for VK Prakashs Praana to raise voice against the rising intolerance against the writers and artists. Because of that, there is no doubt in ones mind why this movie was created. But writer Rajesh Jayaraman delivers a scrip

Neeyum Njanum Review: a tiring experience

Posted by Web Desk on January 18, 2019

When the movie shifts its plot frequently, it becomes annoying rather than being unpredictable. The problem with AK Saajans new movie Neeyum Njanum is the same. A very ordinary love story is thrown into complications that are so disjoint that you

Mikhael Review: a Haneef Adeni thriller with no Mammootty factor

Posted by Web Desk on January 18, 2019

Haneef Adeni has a set of props he uses to create movies. Mikhael was a test to know whether he has a variety to offer in terms of stories and in my opinion this was Adenis way of saying I will tell you the same story with different characters. T

Thattumpurathu Achuthan Review: an unexciting experience

Posted by Web Desk on December 22, 2018

Understanding the outdated feel of a script is also a talent. What Lal Jose perhaps is lacking at this point in his career is that. Thattumpurathu Achuthan, his latest outing scripted by M Sindhuraj is a script that should have got shelved a
