Karutha Joothan (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


Ambition does not necessarily always result in achievement, and ‘Karutha Joothan’ leaves us wishing that the director had displayed a better flair to spin a fine yarn. It is one of those films that weighs so much and yet holds inside much less, and a film that unquestionably gets lost in a fog of smugness that it has created around itself.

Honey Bee 2.5 (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


Had it been as judicious in the selection of its fundamental plot line as it had been in the choice of its design, ‘Honey Bee 2.5’ could have worked wonders. As such, it remains a film that never fully explores the limits of its own absurdness and instead makes do with a crackpot try-out that leaves an underdone taste in your mouth.

There is far too much going on here and yet far too little that actually matters, that makes it a film that often gets muffled by its own ambition.

Varnyathil Aashanka (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


There are a few masterly strokes of the film maker that are on display in ‘Varnyathil Aashanka’ that point at how compelling a film it could actually have been. It’s a figure of speech that gets its act only partly right, and its hesitance to fully embrace its goofiness, renders it a much lesser movie than one anticipates it to be.
