The Best Movie 2009 in Malayalam
19 January 2010 | by ahmedliju71See all my reviews

It truly is the best movie I have seen in 2009 in Malayalam. It truly shows we still have quality artists in Malayalam. Excellent story telling, script, movie making and everything. I still cant get them out of my mind. Bridge, Makal, Nostalgia, Puramkazhchakal were extra-ordinary story telling. Island express is also worth mentioning.

All ten stories put together is an excellent choice, and reflection of the diversity one come across, as we move around in real life. Nostalgia has hit the right cords of a typical expat - beautiful, Bridge was very disturbing but excellent story telling, so was Makal, the end was absolutely stunning, even though one was kind expecting such a turn it still raced your adrenaline, and emotions.

Its a true mind stirrer !!! That was much more than one would expect from directors like Shaji Kilas, who I usually despair. Hope More comes out of kerala, Directors like these are an Asset whom I thought didn't exist after Barathan, lohithadas, padmarajan etc.
