  • Malayalam Review: 'Husbands In Goa' aims at fun September 25, 2012

    No brainy entertainer here in Saji Surendran's 'Husbands in Goa'. Just think of the title, watch the posters and get ready with a story before you land up in the cinema halls. For your kind surprise or lack of it, you will find the makers sincerely following your plot without...
  • Malayalam Review: 'Molly Aunty Rocks' is average September 17, 2012

    After an enthusiastic debut with 'Passenger' and a dismal followup with 'Arjunan saakshy', soft ware techie turned director Ranjith Shankar, is back to grace with the new movie 'Molly Aunty Rocks'.

    For quite some time after the recent remake fever of hits in Mollywood, the viewers has sensed it as an endeavor to make quick cash with little efforts of throwing up some sensuous, vivid scenes with older screenplays.

    It has been after almost a dozen for Mammootty films in the last eighteen months, that one movie is coming out with a softer, likable Mammootty in its narratives.

  • Malayalam Review: 'Mr Marumakan' is good in parts August 23, 2012

    After the big hits from Dileeplike 'Karyasthan' and 'MayaMohini', film critics seems to have developed a fear in rating the commercial prospects of Dileep flicks.

  • Malayalam Review: 'Simhasanam' is disappointing August 12, 2012

    The director newer seems to be a new terrain. A run of the mill action love story recited in the most routine manner is what you see in Shaji kailas' latest 'Simhasanam', the only merits being - the first Shaji kailas movie with Prithviraj and indeed an eminently forgettable one. At...
