Ividam Swargamanu – A Brilliant treat from the Team

First of all sorry for the late review.

A brilliant story visualized by the brilliant director with the support of brilliant actor and team. This is the simple review about the movie.

The story of the movie is a normal one, but the script writer made it something different. I liked the 2nd half of the movie compared to the first half (even though both are good).

The climax is mixed with comedy and suspense, suspense is not in the villain but the way lal’s character making his victory over the villain. Mathews (Mohanlal) uses his brain to fight against the villain Aluva Chandy (Lalu Alex) not his muscle power and finally succeeds.

There is no climax fight here but above that you can watch comedy mixed climax which is the energy booster of the film. I don’t like to reveal the story line of the movie; even you also don’t like to reads it from here:). I know most of you have already watched the movie minimum one time.

Roshan Andrews and James Albert again on their winning track with “Ividam Swargamanu”. Mohanlal as usual performed well with his natural acting and other actors also done their role well. The suspense role of Sreenivasan is a good turn of the film.

Overall it’s a nice movie with good pace and “rhythm”.

I cannot count the positives becuse everything worked well in this film, instead I i feel better is to tell the negatives(?). The combination scenes of Mohanlal, Thilakan, and Kaviyoor Ponnamma can be made more to make a good family orineted and some of the farm scenes in the first half could be reduced.

Even though there is no songs in the film, you wont get bored in the 2.45 hours.

Verdict: *** (very happy to give this)

Angel John - is a passable fare

S L Puram Jayasurya's ‘Angel John’ opens as a racy youthful story with plenty of directorial gimmicks and style in the very first hour. But with the advent of a too unrealistic angel, the movie suddenly appear to be in the genre of kids films, that isn't trying to be anything else. That too with the super star Mohanlal as the angel, the director is left with no choices but to fill in the later half to satisfy the star's fans, with the angel throwing himself into all kinds of star tantrums, fights and slow motions. And for those who feels it likable enough to right this point have that fatal third act, where the movie abruptly and unapologetically turns into the kind of predictable handkerchief-friendly melodrama-sentimental fest. And with that, we are pretty sure that we have a downer in our hands, though made with much noble intentions.

The movie has Santhanu Bhagiyaraj debuting into Malayalam as Maradona, a spoilt brat who fools around doing all nonsense for just a fun (''Oru Rasam'', as it is heard repeatedly all through in the film which paradoxically offers not much ''Rasam''). Being a failure in his studies, this commerce student, the only son of Bank manager Joseph (Lalu Alex) and Mary (Ambika) is now after ways to make easy money, to prove himself before his dad. His company of bad friendship and attitudes makes him fail in every endeavors like the internet cafe business and even drugs trading.

Maradona's father who is heavily affected by his son's ways suffers a heart attack, while Maradona is finally thrown out of his house. Much shattered with this, the young boy now decides to commit suicide by jumping into the sea from a light house, but is miraculously held back from the deed by a divine angel who appears from the skies. The angel now enter into an agreement with the prankster and decides to grant him a boon, every day. The film follows to tell how the association with the guardian angel spell wonders in Maradona's life, changing him to some one whom he never was.

The film, though with a different storyline and heavy messages seemingly inspired from films like ‘Bhootnath’ to it's wonderful life (1946), fails to work at the needed level as the director fails to find a narrative lineup that is either realistic or filled with elements of fantasy. The central path that he opts, is filled with plenty of cliches, which fails to ensure that there's anything enough in the story which could keep non-children of every age involved.

The other matter of curious interest is the in-film and subliminal advertising that the film stick to, in every adjacent frames. The movie can be readily advised for a communication student who has a taste in these kind of studies. From the sequences that deliberately show the inner wear brand to the carefully found wordings on the Maradona's T- shirts, the art director and the director seems have given heavy thoughts on to pick and write the right sequences to feature the products.

Santhanu Bhagiyaraj is clearly likable and adequate to the role, having finesse in every departments associated with filmi acting, But his loud dubbing takes out the grace of the character. Mohanlal is graceful as usual and does his role with Elaan, he often saves the sequences and often at least tries to. But had another fresh face appeared in the role, the majority would have looked on the film as a different attempt. But here his star image comes in the way of the characterization, which ultimately leads to messing up of the events. The supporting cast of Vijayaragahvan, Lalu Alex and Ambika are apt for the roles while Nithya shines as limping Soffie. Jagathy also appear in a distinct role of Khadar Moosa who is always ready to risk his life to find his name in the list of Limca book of records.

The technical side of the movie is indeed a winner with Ajayan Vincent and Bijith Bala doing a good job in cinematography and editing. While the two songs in the film set to music by year's national award winner Ouseppachan’ will not stay in your hearts, his background score and title music are exceptional.

Unnaipol Oruvan - Movie Review

"Unnaipol Oruvan" is undoubtedly one of the most awaited movie of this season and proves to be a true reflection of a common man’s anger against Terrorism.

Kamal Haasan plays the protagonist against the terrorism. The hero’s objective gets revealed only in the second half until then the audience mind rolls with inquisitiveness what and why is the hero plotting against the police and the public. Mohanlal plays the role of a commissioner. The audience gets engrossed with this character and empathize the predicament a commissioner goes through from the hands of Power, Politics and Public.

The credit goes to the Debutant Director Chakri Toleti. He deserves a pat on his shoulder for setting the story straight forward and not moving out of the template.

The political satire over the Telephone with Chief Minister does not fail to impress and there are many gripping moments in the film, especially when the Task Force officer (played by Ganesh Venkatram) plots the operating site of the Hero.

The film shot completely in RED One format shows Cinematographer Manoj Soni's brilliance and the tone of the film reflects the proceedings aptly.

The Music is by Shruthi Haasan, the tiger’s cub got to be tiger and yes she leaps 16 feet. The back ground score is commendable.

"Angel John" - Movie Preview

Maradona is the only son of Joseph, a bank employee. Though he was reared with maximum care, facilities and fortunes, Maradona turned out to become a kind of spoilt brat who was never able to fulfill his parents ambitions. He couldn't even pass his B Com exam even after many sessions. He had a friend in sofiya, but somehow he was falling into newer problems whenever he was attempting for something different.

It was at this confusing juncture that Maradona decides to end his life. He plans to commit suicide by jumping into a dangerous sea. But the fate has something different destined for him. From the very instant he appeared on the shore, he was being watched by someone who found something different in the young man’s manoeuvres and behavior.

What was his intentions?  What was it that made him to rescue Maradona and revive his attitudes and made him a winner? ‘Angel John’ the new Mohanlal starer is all about this guardian angel and his different relationship with the young Maradana.
