Rasam 2015 Malayalam new movie review

        Rasam 2015 Malayalam new movie review

The best moment of Rajeev Nath's 'Rasam' comes at the very end of the film, when you get to see Mohanlal pour some Payasam on to a neatly laid out plantain leaf, and scoop it up with his fingers much to the amusement of a couple of Arab men sitting nearby. It is this unaffectedness that the rest of the film lacks, which makes it a watchfully cooked dish that has gone all cold.

Celebrated chef Valliyottu Thirumeni (Nedumudi Venu) is surprised to find none other than Megastar Mohanlal at his door step one fine morning, accompanied by Menon (Devan) a business tycoon from Doha. Apparently Menon's daughter Janaki (Varuna Shetty) is getting married, and Mohanlal requests Thirumeni to travel to Doha to bless the wedding with the sumptuous Sadya that he is renowned for.

After a bit of coaxing, Thirumeni does agree to travel abroad, and instructs his son Bala Shankar (Indrajith Sukumaran) and his assistant Nair (Nandu) to make the necessary arrangements. On reaching Doha, Bala Shankar discovers that Janaki is engaged to a womanizer (Nihal Pillai) and seeks Mohanlal's assistance to save the girl from an impending disaster.

After the initial half an hour when Thirumeni dwells on what makes a Sadya more than perfect, the film shifts gears to Doha, where Bala Shankar takes over the reins of the tale. From here on, it is a steep dive downward, and the more the script strives to sound profound, the less effective it turns out to be.  

As the film draws to a close, we do realize that it's an age old tale that we have been listening to all the while, with some Sambar, Sambharam and Rasam served as accompaniments. It's a very conventional climax that it leads to as well, and when the credits start rolling, you tell yourself that you knew all about it anyway.

There are a couple of songs in 'Rasam' that act as nothing but speed breakers and another one that employs some embarrassing graphics. It's not just that they look and sound totally out of place; they even serve to severe off the little emotional attachment that you have been frantically trying to build up with the plot.

It's very unlikely that you will feel for any of these characters in 'Rasam', and with no romance in the air, when an unlikely couple takes the plunge, it seems even more enforced. There is no surprise element to it however, and you may forlornly wonder as to how it all got this way.

'Rasam' is by no means a Mohanlal film, though it should be admitted that he is the only good thing about it. Mohanlal, playing himself is remarkably at ease, and even when forced to take up the role of a narrator whose lines sound all messed up, does maintain a dignified stance. Indrajith isn't offered an earth shattering role, and does an adequate job as Bala Shankar while Varuna Shetty looks and sounds a bit out of sync. Nedumudi Venu is all impressive as Valliyottu Thirumeni, even as Nandu puts up an inflated act.

'Rasam' dabbles with a done and redone recipe that has nowhere fascinating to go, and has the smell of a dud lingering all over it. Adding little novelty of its own, it ends up being a pointless cuisine exercise where nothing innovative is either cooked or served.

Picket 2015 Malayalam new movie review

Picket 2015 Malayalam new movie review

The striking visual style and the freezing landscapes in Major Ravi's 'Picket 43' do not make up for the flickering story line that threatens to blow out any minute. Major heaps in loads of patriotism, familial sentiments and some bon ami passion into a much familiar plot, and crafts a film that sparsely manages to catch your attention during its two hour run.

As he gets ready to leave home on a much longed leave, army man Hareendran Nair (Prithviraj) gets posted to the infamous Picket 43 that lies along the India - Pakistan border, from where few army personnel have made it back alive. Along with the sniffer lab Bacardi, Hari reaches Picket 43 and is welcomed by a shower of bullets from the army shack across the border.

As days pass by, the Pak army sentinel who had been hell bent on giving Hari sleepless nights is replaced by Mushraff (Javed Jaffrey), and a camaraderie evolves between the two as they discover quite a few common interests in music, cricket and Bollywood. When militants attack Picket 43, this amity is put to test with dire consequences.

As much as the film talks of this warm good will that grows between the two army men on either sides of the border, the script does not build on it to an admirable level, and instead digresses into too many distractions. Ultimately it does not stir us on any of these counts, which is why the companionship between Hari and Mushraff fails to make the impact that it should certainly have.

There is this particular cinematic mould that Major Ravi comfortably adheres to, film after film, and 'Picket 43' is no exception. It's indeed understandable that every army man who serves the nation has a family back home but Ravi has focused on it without as much as a grain of change in every film since 'Keerthi Chakra', and cinematically it does not impress.

The flashbacks talk of a love back home, and Ravi does some inept casting as well with the actress who plays the jawan's lady love. That the said scenes are banal is an added disadvantage, and the first half of the film limps considerably with a pile of sentiments ruling out any possibility of some exciting action.

There are no big surprises in store in the latter half as well, and for anyone who even has an inkling as to how a tale of cross border friendships would go, everything that is to follow should be palpably clear. They pretty much work out as you expect them to, and as the film finally draws to a close, Ravi would have handed out to you on a platter, yet another of his army films.

It escapes me totally as to why Bacardi was carelessly left behind by the troops, especially since we had been told right at the beginning that he is one of the best sniffer dogs in the military. It's good to see him back in the climax yet again, but it's difficult to believe that there could be such total disregard for an animal life.

Prithviraj lends his heart and soul to his portrayal of the army man, and his extremely persuasive act is what elevates a mediocre script above the ordinary. He is ably supported by a stellar performance by Javed Jaffrey as his comrade under stress. Jomon T John's splendid frames make 'Picket 43' a delectable visual treat.

And despite all this, for all the jawans who are out there at this moment safeguarding the security of our land, as I contentedly key in these words in the comforts of my cosy living room, I would give 'Picket 43' an Above Average rating. Perhaps for once, it's the venerable thought behind it that I choose to honor, than the film itself.

Mariyam Mukku 2015 Malayalam new movie review

       Mariyam Mukku 2015 Malayalam new movie review

Script writer James Albert falters big time as a director with 'Mariyam Mukku', and fails to hold together the strands of a tale that we are already much familiar with. Striking no new ground, Albert chooses the easy way out, opts for a time-honored story line and sets it up in a coastal village called Mariyam Mukku.

It's at Mariyam Mukku that Felix (Fahadh Faasil) grows up all alone after his parents pass away, under the supervision of his godfather Aasaan (Manoj K Jayan). Felix leads Aasaan's thug gang, and while in hot pursuit of an assailant runs into Mother Mary herself. Little does he realize that it's Salomi (Sana Altaf), his childhood friend who has returned home, after a long stint at Chennai.

Salomi sows the seeds of love in the man's heart, much to the chagrin of Aasaan. The entire village is vexed when Mother Mary makes an appearance yet again, and miracles are performed. In no time, Mariyam Mukku is flooded with pilgrims, and the lives of the villagers are altered beyond recognition.

Here is a premise that has been dug deep into in a million ways, and there is no way in which the underlying banality could pass off as insightfulness. The movie doesn't tell us anything that we haven't already seen, and it fails to go anywhere with its routine observations. The spurned guardian is as evil as he has always been and his scheming as vile as ever.

It's an elaborate canvas that Albert paints his picture on, and it teems with characters, several of whom sound hollow. The airless atmosphere that pervades all over, makes them go round and round in circles, with little startling movements in the plot.

There is often a life altering moment that brings about a sea change in an individual and for Aasaan, it arrives right at the climax. Bingo, he is a new man, and calls it a truce. Lloyd (Aju Varghese) who is added midway through as an adversary to the protagonist gets pulled out of the plot as quickly as he had been pushed in.

The ensemble cast that 'Mariyam Mukku' can easily boast of, has little in their hands with the subpar material that they are offered. The enjoyable moments are meager, and the sappy fable that we get to see on screen is merely a commonplace addition to the much explored romantic film genre.

Perhaps the sole relief amidst all the non-happenings in the film are the performances by the leading pair. Fahadh reminds you of Rasool yet again, but Felix is a much scaled down version that the actor effortlessly adapts himself to. Sana Altaf, makes a sparkling debut as Salomi, and charms you with a naivete that emanates straight out of her eyes.

Maoj K Jayan is his usual self as Aasaan, while Joy Mathew and Prathap Pothen are around in significant roles as well. 'Mariyam Mukku' does have a delectable musical score by Vidyasgar and some stunning cinematography by Gireesh Gangadharan.

'Mariyam Mukku' is a routine romance that has been excruciatingly stretched out beyond endurance levels. It's quite hard to get all excited about the happenings at 'Mariyam Mukku', and with its formula having grown extremely stale its screen life could indeed be incredibly short as well.

Mili 2015 Malayalam Movie Review

                             Mili 2015 Malayalam Movie Review

Rajesh Pillai's 'Mili' is far from faultless and even uneven at times, but at the core of its experience is a theme that shakes you out of your weekend slumber. Peppered with genuinely poignant moments, 'Mili' is a heartwarming film that feels good and feels right.

From a reclusive teenager who is never able to match up to her dad's (Saikumar) expectations, Mili (Amala Paul) grows into a diffident young school teacher, whose prime pastimes are stalking her crush on Facebook and making the lives of her roommates a hell. On being fired from her job, she decides to end her life, but finds a surprising supporter in a jolly bear waste bin.

When her local guardian Nancy (Praveena) insists that she try out something new, Mili is hesitant. But aided by the supportive words of Naveen (Nivin Pauly), Nancy's brother, she sets out on a fresh venture that transforms her life beyond recognition.

'Mili' is a film that exhorts you to push aside the indolent procrastinator within you and to decide once and for all to do what you have always been wanting to do. In the process, it will help you rediscover yourself, and to shed off those layers of uncertainty and indecision that have been pulling you back all along.

 The world that Mili inhabits is populated by individuals who are black and white, and at times grey. Her dad, a college professor by profession is devastated that his daughter has ended up nowhere, while his student Nancy is more empathetic towards Mili's plight. Naveen, being an HR trainer himself, pulls the right chords and gets Mili on track in no time.

It's heartening to see that a character that is once grey does not remain so throughout the entirety of the film. They undergo transformations as normal people like you and me do, and when Mili's once tormented roommates strike up a fresh rapport with her, we can rest assured that they are only being human. When a concerned mother (Sangeetha Mohan) insists that Mili be thrown out of the school that she works in for her heedlessness, it almost seems impossible that she will ever smile at Mili again. But smile she does, which makes her downright human as well.

'Mili' does falter a bit when it comes to the transformation that occurs in her life, particularly in it being a bit too sudden. Overnight, Mili emerges a new girl who has thrown caution to the winds and who even visits a discotheque with her new friends. On meeting her old crush, she seeks sweet revenge by declining his offer, and emphasizing that her makeover is almost complete. Though it does energize us to see the worn out girl emerging the winner in life, one wonders as to how those years of reticence and smothering of emotions could all on a sudden be replaced by a new persona that seems as distinct from her original self as chalk is from cheese.

In the very last scene when Mili hogs the mike, you get all set for a sermon. She talks of a childhood marked by the yearning for an assuring touch, and urges parents not to pursue their dreams through their kids. She winds up with a celebrated Wordsworthian line, leaving a trail of thoughts in the process.

It's Amala Paul all the way that carries the film on her petite shoulders, and perhaps this is a career best performance from the young actress. I loved Nivin Pauly too in the film, for his well designed feat that never goes overboard even for a minute. Especially worth a mention are the supporting performances from Praveena and Saikumar.

Rajesh Pillai's Ugly Betty sans the braces, is an uplifting story of a branded loser getting her act straight once and for all. A smart and cozy watch for the weekend, 'Mili' is a refreshingly sparky fare that should leave you enthused.
