Neeyum Njanum Review: a tiring experience

Posted by Web Desk on January 18, 2019

Mikhael Review: a Haneef Adeni thriller with no Mammootty factor

Posted by Web Desk on January 18, 2019

Posted by Web Desk on November 17, 2018

Joseph Review: totally engaging even with the flaws

Posted by Web Desk on November 16, 2018

Oru Kuprasidha Payyan Review: a logically faulty cinema

Posted by Web Desk on November 9, 2018

Who Review: watching this amateurish film is a tough task

Posted by Web Desk on October 29, 2018

Science fiction level fantasies are a bit alien to our film industry. Ideas like Inception have worked for the audience here as well and so someone trying something like that is indeed a welcoming change for the industry. Who, the new film direct

Posted by Web Desk on October 29, 2018

French Viplavam Review: beta version of a good comedy satire

Posted by Web Desk on October 26, 2018

Posted by Web Desk on October 19, 2018
