Ganagandharvan Review

Ganagandharvan Movie Review

Director Ramesh Pisharody wastes no time in his second directorial, Ganagandharvan, and dives straight into business in the first five minutes of the film. Cops interrupt Ullas (Mammootty), who is performing with his ganamela troupe, and drags him to the jeep, while he pleads them to leave him, saying he is a normal person who has done no harm. Ullas, who has been performing in the troupe for 26 years, is married and barely makes ends meet with his paltry earning from his performances. However, the scriptwriters Pisharody and Hari P Nair doesn’t let Ullas’ trouble wear the story down, instead, they plaster humor with every struggle.

Parallel to Ullas’ story is that of Sandra and her father. The duo is caught up in an illegal land acquisition case and is finding a way to get Sandra out of the country. Do-gooder Ullas is their way out. How he tries to help them and ends up neck-deep in trouble is how the plot evolves. Pisharody takes his own sweet time setting up the first half of the engaging drama, which has his signature humor written all over it. The filmmaker has used comedy effectively to keep the smart script engaging even when it veers to the melodrama territory and touches serious legal topics from the current socio-political scenario.

Mammootty aces the role of Ullas, underplaying the emotional scenes and yet letting the expressions betray the world of a struggle inside him. Pisharody has also put the actor’s knack for extracting natural humor with his acting to good use at the film’s critical junctures. Supporting acts by Manoj K Jayan, Suresh Krishna, Mukesh, and Maniyanpilla Raju add pace to the proceedings that get a zest of energy in the second half. Athulya as the angry and impatient Sandra and Vanditha as Ullas’ wife play their parts well. The script has several clever quips, in the form of Innocent’s astrologer, Suresh Krishna’s Yesudas imitation or even Manoj K Jayan and Mukesh taking a dig at their actions and political careers, respectively.

The first half though is a tad long, and certain sequences such as Ullas fiddling with the instruments in a music shop and him talking with prisoners seem to work well as standalone skit pieces but somewhat slows down the narrative when it’s part of a feature film. The strength of Ganagandharvan though is the acting and script. While Pisharody has resorted to straightforward, old school storytelling, he has done it with panache, proving that a good script does not need any gimmick to entertain the audience.

Chola Movie Review

Chola Movie Review

Chola is a Malayalam-language drama film directed by Sanal Kumar Sasidharan and produced by Joju George, and cop-produced by Shaji Mathew and Aruna Mathew. The film stars Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan and Akhil Viswanath.

Chola Movie Review

Be prepared for an immersive, literally head-spinning and almost interactive bit of film viewing. For this, the credit goes not just to director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan and the amazing cast, but in equal, if not more, measure to cinematographer Ajith Aacharya and composer Sergey Cheremisinov. Their combined efforts will fill you with anger, fear, hate and sometimes leave you almost feeling sick.

The story is like an on-the-ground portrayal of an abuse case, regularly reported in Kerala. The names of the characters are almost not important, though Nimisha Sajayan, a truant schoolgirl, is called Janu by her boyfriend. The youngsters decide to get out of their village in the high ranges for a day of fun in the city. Their ‘chaperone’ is Joju George, who is the boy’s ‘ashaan’. Janu is uncomfortable from the start to see him and things don’t take long to get out of hand.

And there is none of the ‘prettiness’ of commercial cinema here. There are moments when you are left flinching. There may be bits in the denouement that we don’t understand, but even that can be appreciated as the complications of emotions rising from life-changing situations. Nimisha is perfect as the raw, provincial schoolgirl. Her fear and helpless submission will get under your skin. Joju fills the screen with a menacing presence. Akhil Viswanath is excellent as the spineless boyfriend. These are characters we will love to hate for a long time. And we have to add once again about the jolts the cinematographer gives, while almost spinning us around to convey a horrible moment or putting us under the power of a waterfall. Sergey’s music is chillingly fitting for the scenes.

Chola Review

Chola Review

The criticism Sanal Kumar Sasidharan usually faces is that the pace of his films is slow. Here too, it is a small story that moves at a mellow pace – there are lingering glances, moody landscapes, few dialogues and symbolic imagery – but never once do you feel a lag; so immersed are you in the storytelling. It is a must-see for the lover of cinema, but be warned, it is not for the faint of heart.

Thakkol Movie Review

Thakkol Movie Review and Rating

Thakkol, as the name suggests, is to travel behind the Thakkol without saying a word behind the Thakkol. Writer and director Kiran Prabhakaran, who is leaving the theater, understands that the key is not just opening the box, but also understanding some people. The film stars Indrajith and Murali Gopi as the central characters and exposes the mystery of the human mind through Christian priests. Those who seem to be cruel in the first place may never be so. This is underscored by the closing words of the film, “Cruel deeds that do good.”

Thakkol Movie

Thakkol Movie

The film is about Monsignor Mankunnath Pailey and Ambrose Vaz, the boy he brings with him as an altar boy. Ambrose, as an altar boy, was still with Monsignor Mankunnath Pailey. Monsignor, who kept Ambrose under his wing, never wanted to set Ambrose free. However, at the recommendation of Clement, who plays Ranji Panicker, the bishop appoints Ambrose as vicar of the parish church where he was born. His father’s decision to deliver to Ambrose was to escape Monsignor’s hand. However, Clement says he has a false eye for bringing Ambrose to the church and will reveal it upon his arrival. But when it came to the new church, things were not as Ambrose intended. There, waiting for Ambrose Sachsen was a key that was not down. The film is a journey behind it.

Monsignor Mankunnath Pailei plays Murali Gopi and Ambrose plays Indrajith. Both of these characters with a lot of inner sincerity are literally awesome. Each of the actors who entered the film were small but made their characters better. Renji Panicker’s Clement is a different character in his career. Ranji Panicker has been able to improve the character by giving a variety of voices as well as just the sidewalk. Nedumudi Venu, Inia, Roni, and Sudev Nair are the other characters in the film.Thakkol Movie Review

Thakkol Movie ReviewThere are some great songs in the movie. The music is composed by M Jayachandran. Jayachandran’s background music is what sustains the film’s mood. The main camera of Goa and Kottayam, the film was handled by Albie. The camera reaches out to the characters’ moods rather than visual beauty.

The two-and-a-half-hour-long film takes on a rhythmic rhythm rather than the intensity of the story. So length is often a villain. If the audience is confused about which direction the film is heading until the end of the first half, there is no mistaking it. Shaji Kailas, the director, and producer who brought the film to the forefront of this complex issue, deserves its share of the film as an entertainer. Shaji Kailas Jonar’s name in the role of the producer may be the Thakkol disappointment to the audience who come to the theater expecting a Shaji Kailas Joner film.

Happy Sardar Movie review, latest update

Happy, a timid Sardar living in Patiala, finds his life turned upside down when he falls in love with Mary, a Malayali Knanaya Christian girl. He wins her heart and both sets of parents agree to the wedding. But there`s a catch: his folks want a Punjabi Shaadi and Mary`s father is adamant about having a Christian wedding. Can he pull this off, especially since his three co-brothers (a Hindu, a Muslim and a Communist) are out to wreck his plans?

to parents who stick to their guns, while youngsters are unconcerned about region and religion. But cultural differences in love stories are also fertile ground for comedy if executed well. Does Happy Sardar tap this well? Punjabi-Malayali boy Happy Singh (Kalidas) and Mary (Merin Philip), a Knanaya girl fall in love. But then comes the trickiest part – making their families fall in love. They set out to win over the parents, but as anyone can guess, it’s no cakewalk.

The film is light and frothy in parts. Kalidas has a decent screen presence as a young Mallu Sardar. New girl Merin looks cute in her different get-ups. There are a few good jokes by Sharafudheen’s character. It’s not always that one gets to see ceremonies of communities, such as the Knanayas, on the big screen and this film shows us quite a few such interesting aspects. The styling of the characters is good and song settings are nicely done. The movie might resonate with those who have had inter-state weddings. At times, there

are also some playful digs at each other’s cultures that are enjoyable. However, something that one needs strongly in a romantic tale is a strong chemistry between the lead pair, which is sadly absent here. The film seems to neither care much about establishing why the duo are so into each other, nor does it really bother to captivate the audience. At times, the couple’s journey is even stretched to the point of extreme Bollywood-square disbelief.

Certain in-your-face, impact-less evergreen dialogues and references are tough to ignore. The parental tiffs expected in the tale are too stretched-out and overdone in certain sequences. The movie gathers its emotional heft mostly in the second half, even going to the extent of showing how the cultural hatred

spread by the older generation corrupts young minds, but not with much effect. The second half of the film also often descends into a tiring melodrama that makes one squirm in the seat, waiting for the ending. The songs only serve to slacken the pace of the screenplay which is predictable to the extent of being seriously boring. Happy Sardar might impress those who care the best about a colorful narration, even in the absence of a story with a strong spine.
