"Johns & Korah" = Modern day "Dasan & Vijayan"
I can't remember another Malayalam movie that was as anticipated and hyped as ABCD. The marketing partners as well as the cast did a masterful job of publicizing and keeping the fans updated throughout the making of the film. Even us at Malayalam Film Blog actually wrote a Preview about the film in October of 2012. The hype for the film is especially evident when looking at the analytic of this site and seeing that the ABCD Preview received one of the highest "Hits" on a daily basis showing the interst of the Malayalam film lovers.
Dulquer (If he can be called a newcomer) , Gregory, Aparna Gopinath (Mathumitha), SP Sreekumar etc. do a masterful job of keeping the viewers entertained throughout. Hats off to the creators and Martin Prakkat for putting it all together.
One of the best quotes about ABCD I have seen (via twitter) was: "Johns & Korah, the new generation Dasan &
Going into the movie expect nothing but comical and playful three hours and you will not be disappointed. The general gist of the movie is about a couple of privileged kids from the US trying to get acclimated to Kerala on there own. The opposite of what Dasan and Vijayan went through!!!
Only one question remains: When is the Sequel coming out?
defiantly a must watch, don't miss it.
- Dulquer Salmaan sure knows how to pick winners. Keep it up.
- Jacob Gregory (Giri Giri from Akkarakazhchakal) was AWESOME!!!
- Tovino Thomas, the pseudo villain Akhilesh Varma, did good.
- SP Sreekumar (Lloyd Fernandez) from Marimayam was entertaining for the small part that he had.
- "Njangal thammil oru bendam ondu, mala bendham"
- Korah's ill timed one liners were great and kept the playful tone always
- "I think our balls are not safe here "
- "Which asshole invented this kakkoos..."
- "To all country people..."
