Amal Neerad’s ‘Bheeshma Parvam’ is an epic opera mounted on a gargantuan canvas that talks of bonds and betrayals and reeks of blood. With sprawling subject matter that rightly captures the ambition of its writers, ‘Bheeshma Parvam’ is a delightful ode to some of the best mobster cinematic works to have come out this side of the world.
‘Anjaam Pathira’ elevates itself much higher than the usual plains occupied by a standard murder mystery, and is a thrilling ride that is gripping to the core. With a whopper winner as this hitting the screens as January just about gets under way, looks like we might have a superb film year coming up this time around!
‘Vikadakumaran’ does not manage to work wonders with the slender thread of promise that lies at its core. This one has a plot that gets creakier with time, and at two hours and ten minutes, it huffs and puffs along, before eventually running out of steam.
