Allu Ramendran (2019) Malayalam Movie Review – Veeyen


Bilahari’s ‘Allu Ramendran’ is a scaled down ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’ that talks of how individual enmity and personal vendetta could rule and ruin human lives, when it turns obsessive and fanatical.

‘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.

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.
