Kumbalangi Nights (2019) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


‘Kumbalangi Nights’ is much more than an account of four brothers on a frenzied quest to find themselves and each other. Drenched in a matchless mix of human emotions that range from hilarity to hopelessness, it’s a superb film that drives you into raptures and which is infused with figurative undertones, structures and symbols that hold a striking mirror to the times that we live in.

Peranbu (2019) Tamil Move Review – Veeyen


Brilliantly performed, visually striking and deftly structured, ‘Peranbu’ is an avowal of a fortune that we live with every day, and a prompt to remain forever thankful for the miracle called life.

Vijay Superum Pournamiyum (2019) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


‘Vijay Superum Pournamiyum’ has a pretty atmosphere that is accentuated with solid performances and compelling moments that glimmer here and there.  But it regrettably lacks the requisite natural vibes to render it the charm that could have transferred it to the next level – that of a wholly agreeable entertainer.
