Malayalam Movie Review - Thattathin Marayathu (Rating 4/5 Star)

WoW!!! Who said there are not good movies being made in Malayalam No More!!!!!


Thattathin Marayathu

Official Teaser poster
Directed byVineeth Sreenivasan
Produced bySreenivasan
Written byVineeth Sreenivasan
Music byShaan Rahman


No Superstars, No "Usual" Side Kicks, No Stunts, Not many songs = Approx 2 Hrs of Pure enjoyment.  I'm writing this review hours after I saw the movie, so maybe I'm being a little generous with my 4.5/5 rating.  All in all this was just a beautiful movie, that was well thought out and executed perfectly.

I live in the US and usually when we go to the theater to watch a movie, often times there is only a handful of people in the theater.  So last night we went to the show right on time (as we usually do) wondering how many people will be at the show.  My wife and I were actually joking that there is probably less than 10 people there.  To our surprise, we wake in and the theater was near full.  We actually saw this movie from the 2ND ROW, and we loved it.
Although I have been hearing about the movie from my Wife, I was not expecting anything great as I did not really know anyone involved w/ the movie other than Vineeth Sreenivasan.  The movie does not feel like it's done by and/or made by Newcomers (maybe that'ts because these guys are not new, just new to me?).  When you watch a normal Malayalam movie, there are a certain set of supporting characters that we are just accustomed to seeing.  Everyone in the movie has purpose I felt, and everyone, not just the main characters, does thier job well and brings an importance to his/her character.

Malayalam Movie Review - Diamond Necklace (Rating 3.5/5 Star)

It's Different!!! Kinda.....


Diamond Necklace

Theatrical poster
Directed byLal Jose
Produced byLal Jose
P. V. Pradeep
Written byIkbal Kuttipuram
StarringFahadh Faasil
Samvrutha Sunil
Gauthami Nair
Music byVidyasagar


Don't know if this is a requirement or not, but looks like Fahadh Faasil requires a love seen to do a movie.   And in this movie, he's got it w/ three different ladies...

In all seriousness, it's a movie almost completely set in Dubai.  It portrays the life of a Dr. in a way which I have never seen in an Indian movies.  Has a good message that you can take away in some sense.

Lal Jose, does a great job in portraying the main character to be likable although his actions are not exactly straight.  There are two main female leads and they both do a good job.  Sprinkle in a little Sreenevasen and it's definitely a move worth watching.

My wife happened to introduce me to a show called "Kadha Ithu Vare" (Search on Youtube), hosted by Poornima Indrajith.  I plan on writing a review on this show at some point.  It's a show where they have a guest and as a surprise to the guest, they bring in all the people that played an integral role in there life in a very nice format.  It's pretty much a tribute to that individual as well as the people who helped them get there.  A very well put together show.  Lal Jose was on there for an episode, and this dude has done a large amount of quality movies.
