Oru Kuprasidha Payyan – Malayalam Movie Review

There was rush aplenty at PVR for second show last night. Lots of school going kids in for movies. Nowadays I book blindly for Tovino movies. He is that good. And of course Madhupal was directing it. So it was worth the visit.


The movie was slower than what I anticipated, especially in the first half, however being a crime thriller, it does begin to pick pace in the second half. Stellar performance yet again from Tovino. Pretty much everybody else is second fiddle in the movie. I am not a great fan of Nimisha, but she had a lovely role in this one. Many might appreciate the levels of her acting, though I felt, more justice could have been done.

Stalwarts like Nedumudi Venu and Siddique leave lasting effects with their roles, but the prime purpose the movie serves is in addressing a lot of social issues.


The movie does perpetrate a motion of distrust in the investigating agencies of the nature and takes sides with innocents who get trapped in the beautifully crafted case diaries.

It’s a one time watch and I would give it 3 on 5.

Theevandi – Malayalam Movie Review

Went for the 715 pm show at Gold PVR yesterday. After a depressing start to Chingam with the floods, the return of the malayalam movies was definitely a mood refreshener.

The song ‘Jeevamshamayi’ had been about for quite some time. By now I am a big fan of Tovino T. He just simply blends into his role so beautifully.


The star cast of this August Cinema productions is full of State and National Award winners. There is not enough reasons why one should not watch this one.


Maybe 16+ would be the rating for this movie to come to terms with all the issues addressed here. I have read already a couple of reviews where people claim the second half dragged on. Whilst the first half delves into the storyline with lot more humor and substance, the second half is what this movie is all about. Cruise through the first with light fun and concentrate in the second. Your heart will be warm. My love for Tovino grows each day. Keep performing. I enjoy watching you.

There are lot of life lessons to learn in this one. Subtle but perfectly put across. I could see myself sit there and realize how my life is learning from the ebb and flow as we grow.

Go out there to watch this for some good humor, excellent acting and a beautiful message. Pinne TovinoT.. final scene lesham koodipoyo…. 😛 😛


I don’t know what is up with 2018 but it convinced me to watch a movie in a theatre..one that I already watched in 2017. There was just too many things going right in this movie for me to watch it again. Couple of things against it as well..the couple being the two toddlers, one sitting in the row in front of me and the other behind, crying during the first visit to the theatre.. Lol.

I went to watch it without seeing the trailer, but knowing it’s an AA (Aashiq Abu) flick. Being just into my early thirties, this is the sort of film that resonates with me and am sure a lot of people in my age group. It deals with so many facets of relations that we have without creating any form of cinematic melodrama. Every scene seems to pinch some form of resemblance to our day to day lives, especially us who live in the heart of Kochi.

The background music and cinematography takes the movie to a complete different level as AA weaves his magic. A movie that brings the audience so close to the two prime characters of the movie. AA shows how an entire movie can be made with essentially only two real characters filling it up to the brim. There are moments of inspiration, even in this day and age when our lives are so fast paced.

When I walk out of the theatre, watching this movie, my faith in love is reinforced. Add your two teaspoons of love to everything you do, life just gets beautiful.
