Bother's Days : review

Brothers day review


Brothers day.

Directed and written by Shajon, malayalam cine artist popularly known as Kalabhavan Shajon.
Produced by Listin stephen and Justin stephen.
Lead cast: Prthviraj Sukumaran, Aishwarya lekshmi, Madonna sebastian, Prasanna, Prayaga martin, Mia, Vjayaraghavan.

                       Story begins with a flashback incident set in the outskirts of Tamil Nadu unveiling the story of a kid, Peeli and her family. As the film advances, the story line takes it deviation to the main story which rounds the life of Ronnie, played by Prithviraj, who works at a catering company. There are several comic moments between Prithviraj and Dharmajan, bursting the audience into laughter. As once mentions in the movie itself, its been a long time since we saw Prithviraj with a surtle and  acting style, considering his recent releases like Adam Joan, Nine and Ranam The story runs introducing a series of star cast including Sphadikam george, Madonna sebastian and most importanly Vijayaraghavan and Prasanna. All the four female leads have their own narration advancing on its own pace and each one directing (except Madonna) itself to a common story led by Prasanna, who plays the villain in the movie. Sliding through its twists and surprises, film ends with a well intresting fight. 

The story and narration has nothing too much new to offer, but it sure entertains you for the 180 minutes long showtime. Yes, it could be a littile more for a malayalam film, but with the stunning star cast and the comic/suspense elements placed evenly throughout the movie doesnt makes you feel bored. The only time you wonder how long the movie is, is when you long for an interval to pee or to smoke. It could have been cut down to a standard cinema duration, but it is not a regret nor a negative. 

Film includes 3 songs, the first one (tamil) sung by South actor Dhanush. It is refreshing to see some new stunt moves midst other movies displaying unbelieveable action sequences.

Shajon did his part well, in presenting the story cards in place and intact, where it could have gone wrong considering the number of storylines included in the script. Camera and editing did its part in a decent manner.

All the actors did their part well except Prayaga martin, whose acting felt a little top of the edge. However this doesnt draws your attention from the entertainment value this cinema have to offer. Mia's character definition is a bit more fascinating compared to the rest of the heroine lot in the movie. The producer himself and director Shajon too does their cameos very well.

What to expect: a well entertaining comedy thriller.
What not to expect: the so called "new" treatment and social commitment sort of messages.

Note: This movie is pure entertainment and dont expect all movies to be realistic and less of drama. As someone wisely said, our film industry is wide enough to portray any kind of movies and its up to audiences, including me and you, to watch, like or dislike them. But lets not be judgemental or prejudistic to expect a certain genre of movies alone to be release. We are a welcoming audience and we have space for every kind of movies.

Go watch movies at the theatre.

See you at the box office!
See you next friday!

Nonsense : A Gem of a movie

Nonsense movie review




There is always a movie, that we miss in theatres and turn out to be a gem later on and yes! ‘Nonsense’ is also one among them.


Synopsis:

The movie starts with Arun who lives with his grandfather and his only dream is to be a BMX stunt performer in his life. The young chap is so human with logical thinking and has a selfless heart.
But there is'nt much people that understand him and his thoughts. 

The movie revolves around the life of Arun, an incident that unfortunately happens and the things he does to make things right.

What I like about the movie:

This is a very light-hearted movie, easy to watch and very engaging; but nitpicks many things that make us re-think about ourselves and the society we live in.
The direction and the acting of the cast are so well that I never felt an emptiness on screen or a lag.
And finally, the movie does give a nostalgic feel of our school days :).

This is a must watch movie : Watch it at Amazon Prime

Vikram Vedha Review

Vikram Vedha review

Vikram vedha is the 2017 tamil movie, written and directed by Pushkar and Gayatri under the banner of ‘Y Not Studios’. The cinematography of P S Vinod and the seamless editing by Richard Kevin gives the movie a vivid cinematic experience.  BGM by  Sam C.S is another vital element that makes you clinged to the movie .
The film boast of a well celebrated star cast which include Madavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead and other pivotal roles are done by Shraddha Srinath, Varalakshmi and Karthir.

Plot:

We have seen gangster movie and police movies, but VikramVedha is both worlds in one. The movie unravels through Vikram who is a police officer and head of covet unit which was formed to bring down a mob run by Vedha.
The movie starts with a police encounter lead by Vikram and his colleague Simon with their team on the building which was tipped by an informant which could possibly give information about Vedha.
Every goon gets killed in the encounter. But soon after it, Vedha surfaces from his cover.
As the police plan to raid the place; to their surprise Vedha himself surrenders to them.
The interrogation was a total failure until Vikram steps in and all Vedha wanted was to tell him a story about himself and nothing else.  This was judge things not as a police officer but from his point of view. Half heartedly Vikram finally listens to what Vedha wants to say and there starts the story of how a henchman become gangster to what he is now.
The movie is not just a flash back of Vedha’s life, but of relationship, revenge and brotherhood. The story telling way of the movie is something different that we had seen in the past. Vedha reveals three stories in different times of the films which connect all the dots in the movie.
The film has all the charm of a police movie and the furiousness of a gangster movie. With all action, drama and love it has the perfect blend of commercial cinema.
                      Like all the new generation films; VikramVedha also has many twists and turns that prove that our guesses were all wrong at the end.
What to watch for; is the plot and the performances from Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan. Vijay Sethupathi is at his best and should have a big round of applause for his character transform in the film which is splendid to watch.
Other positive factor of the film is its finely blended BGM which keeps on ringing on our ears even after the movie is over.

To conclude Vikram Vedha is a very good entertainer and is a must watch for all movie goers.
