A classic love story which will be never forgotten
1 November 2015 | by soorujose619See all my reviews

'Ennu Ninte Moideen' is a film that truly makes you rooted to your seats .The film manages to hold the audience's interest till the very last scene! The story of Moideen and Kanchanamala set in the backdrop of the 1960's somewhere tugs at your heart. An irreversible tragedy but so beautifully portrayed by the director R.S.Vimal. Capturing the innate beauty of locales in Shoranur and the essence of the characters' emotions , cinematographer Jomon T John has done a brilliant job! The strongest quotient of the movie is that the script has been held together strongly by Vimal and that lends stability and authenticity to the film. Some excellent research has gone into the making of the movie and hats off to the team for putting together a classic movie woven with the perfect dose of drama , romance and some mind blowing music and background score.

One does not exactly expect 'Ennu Ninte Moideen' to break any new ground, since this is a story that thousands of couples have gone through - before and after Kanchanamala and Moideen came along - and yet, if it still manages to leave you all shaken up, its courtesy the honesty in its depiction and the countless ways in which it seeks to subvert our expectations of how it would all ultimately turn out to be.

Which is why the usual beats assume a spectacular power in the film, with the film maker and his performers infusing a rare might into this heartbreaking account of how everything - society, fortune, destiny and nature itself - transpires against a couple hopelessly in love, hurling them onto a whirlpool of doom.

We get to see one of the finest performances in recent times through this film. Prithviraj and parvathy get into the skin of their respective characters of Moideen and Kanchanamala. Prithviraj lives as moideen giving the all required energy,showing us the maturity and credibility of the actor in the film. Paravthy yet again proves her acting brilliance.She is definitely an actress who would attain more height in the times to come. Tovino thomas did his role brilliantly. Bala gets a meaty role after a gap and he does it with excellence. Another brilliant performance came from Lena who acts as Moideen's mother. Rest of the cast comprising of Saikumar, Sudheer karamana, Kalaranjini, Sasikumar etc did a good job.

The songs were beautifully composed by Jayachandran, Ramesh Narayan and Gopi Sunder. They were perfectly placed in the movie, without forcing on to us. The background score by Gopi Sunder was perfectly in sync with the mood of the film.

Altogether,'Ennu Ninte Moideen' is a film that is a must watch. A beautiful movie by Vimal who explored romance to a different dimension which is lost mostly these days. It takes you to the world of true and eternal love. For sure,this story of Moideen and Kanchanamala would stay in your hearts and will never be forgotten. A classic tale of love. Hats off to the entire team.
