"An Intense Romantic Musical That Ensures Hat-trick Box office Success For Prithviraj Sukumaran"
13 November 2015 | by afsalthodupuzhaSee all my reviews

If someone ask me the best thing to happen in Malayalam Cinema in recent years,my prompt answer will be Prithviraj Sukumaran and his miraculous transformation as a matured actor and individual who believes that there isn't any shortcut to suceess,but hardwork!! The expertise that he showcases in choosing good scripts is a revelation that a large number of actors can only dream of .

Yes,after Moideen,now its the turn of Shantanu to steal our hearts with this refreshing new-gen saga of love thats well-packed with melodious music,heartfelt performances,engaging narration and some breathtaking visuals of the islands.

Sachi,from the writer duo of Sachi-Sethu ensures that his debut vehicle as a director is a lovable affair for all the sections alike and succeeded in presenting the age old tale of love in a refreshing canvas with all the required elements mixed in the right proportion for delivering a neat entertainer.The best part here is that Mollywood can get ready to witness three consecutive movies of an actor running packed houses at the same time which only the Big M's and the king of action Suresh Gopi could achieve.

There aren't much negatives to point out in the movie except for some sharp cuts and minor lag in the lengthy second half that's made up to a large extent by a lovely climax that will be well received by 99% of the audience.

Prithviraj played the role of Shantanu impressively and Biju Menon ensured that the lukewarm pace of the narration towards the second half is compensated with his funny lines that manages to make us laugh every time he appear on the screen.The most interesting part of the movie was his hilarious performance towards the climax that will make you laugh out loud for sure.Priyal Gor looked like a rehashed version of Ayisha from 'Thattathin Marayathu' and did her part well.Miya,Sudev Nair and Suresh Krishna gave notable performances.Kabir Bedi,Arun,Samskruthy Shenoy etc did their roles well.

After Abinandhan Ramanujam who captured the picturesque locales of Lakshadweep efficiently in Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal,Sujith Vasudev now its the turn of Sujith Vasudev to capture the beauty and essence of the islands which get to be an integral part of the narration which he accomplishes with full justice.

The soul of a lovestory is always music and noted music director Vidyasagar has comeup with nothing less than the best soundtrack of 2015 that's filled with melodious songs of which its diffcult to point out the best.

Overall, Anarkali is yet another delicious treat from Prithviraj that ensures a delightful watch from the big screens Verdict::Productivity is never an accident.It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.This Friday belongs to Prithviraj Sukumaran and the planned effort that the team of Anarkali has taken.Go for it!
