Aravindante Athidhikal (2018) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


‘Aravindante Athidhikal’ has a plot that is very basic, but filled with characters that are lively enough to sustain viewer attention.  It might not be the most original movie ever either, but is a sweet retelling of a familiar tale, that still leaves a few giggles and a faint gulp down your throat.

Kuttanadan Marpappa (2018) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


‘Kuttanadan Marpappa’ tries to make do with the done-to-death romantic tropes and ends up a much less assured version that it originally must have set out to be. The leaden comic touches do not much help either, and it isn’t a wonder that it ends up in the water, quite like many of its characters who literally do in the film.

Vishwa Vikhyatharaya Payyanmar (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


‘Vishwa Vikhyatharaya Payyanmar’ is a dismayingly frivolous affair that should disappear into oblivion much faster than it probably thought it would. Quickly running out of charms, it’s a disposable cinematic experience that is peeled and tossed away, the moment you walk out of the theatres.

Lava Kusha (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


The very evident intent is to craft a wild and crazy run, but the character development in ‘Lava Kusha’ renders it a routine endeavour. The fleeting moments of humour aren’t enough to retrieve this middling enterprise that makes you forget even the odd smiles that it generates by the end of its agonizingly extended running time.

Bobby (2017) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


Despite a premise that is loaded with possiblities that I’m sure most viewers would have taken to eagerly with a bit of inquisitiveness, ‘Bobby’ reaches nowhere near any of its triumphant predecessors. It lacks the tastefulness that could have done it tons of good, and instead strikes you as a dramatic overstatement on love that attempts to defy age constraints.

Adventures of Omanakuttan (2017) Malayalam Movie Review by Veeyen


Rohith VS in his debut film ‘Adventures of Omanakuttan’ tries his best to shift away from a prosaic narrative, but his earnest efforts are quashed by a script that runs a bit too long, and gets a bit too weary after a while. Flaunting sparks of a promising film maker every once in a while, it’s a movie that places its entire gamble on an innovative plot device, and partially wins.

Ramante Eden Thottam (2017) Malayalam Movie Review by Veeyen


The feminist ideologies that ‘Raamante Eden Thottam’ puts to the fore accentuate that life for a woman lies further beyond the restrictive realms of a despondent marriage. There is a fierce sense of gravity that shrouds the smile on Malini’s face as she steadily walks towards the camera in the final scene; and it is probably this bright moment that would make us overlook all those detracting blotches that had marked her long journey.
