Poor period film... Period!
21 August 2012 | by drjineeshSee all my reviews

There's a wonderful romantic song starting ' Malarmanjariyil' sung beautifully by Chinmayi performed on screen by Indrajith and Nithya Menon; in the film. That's one good thing about the movie. Sadly it is the only good thing.

An announcement about the film being an adaptation of Hamlet introduces you to the movie. In the end, one who has read the play would be left wondering whether there was any worse adaptation ever; and one who hasn't would think it were one of the worst Shakespeare plays.

The elaborate dialogs making use of an outdated dictionary to communicate the period premises; and the non emotion clad faces to produce the subtlety of art house productions appear outright contradictory and makes for tedious viewing. The costumes are comic to say the least with Nithya Menon looking like having made a blast to the past from the 90s. The characters are hollow, seem more like caricatures; and the performances poor. One cannot identify with our protagonist, Rudran Gurukkal, played by Indrajith ( No fault of his, for the character has no substance), his emotions, actions or method. His dreams look like a lift straight from a puppet show. This is one mediocre film and one feels sorry to have viewed it.
