This is a remarkable directorial debut from Chidambaram that absolutely justifies its running time. Nurturing all kinds of delicate emotions and topping them all with some whimsical humour, ‘Janeman’ is an insightfully directed modern fable that totally wins us over with its astute writing, quaint setting, delightful narration and above all, real grounded performances.
‘Kurup’ does get bogged down considerably by the endless trivia that lie strewn all along the narrative. The extra final explorations that it indulges in sound hollow, and while it remains an anodyne watch, there is hardly anything more that is offered.
There is without doubt, way too much going on in ‘Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham’. And despite all this if the film strikes you as an empty experience, and sputters and drags for what seems infinity, it has only the aimlessness and buffoonery of its script to blame.
