A Film that goes deeper into Movie Maniacs.
2 July 2019 | by SameirAliSee all my reviews

A movie with only good deeds... how can it be possible? Those who watch films beyond the language and border knows, it is possible.

A film filled with goodness could be the reflection of the director's mind. Salim Ahmed never creates evil characters just for the melodrama of the story. His films always agrees on the fact that, there is a good person inside every human being.

If this film's title sequence makes your eyes wet. then definitely you are a movie maniac like me, rather an aspiring film maker who couldn't reach any heights yet. Almost all films about film making in Malayalam are super hits. That's because Cinema is so close to the heart of Keralites.

As the protagonist travels, he comes across a film lover. Most of the characters had to choose between life or cinema. Some are forced to choose life over cinema, yet the deepest desires for cinema remains deep in their hearts. And a few choose cinema over life, yet their life suffocates them forever. A few overcomes these hurdles and success embrace them. Vettukili Prakash's character just before the interval remains as a pain for those who have struggled a lot behind cinema.

It's a semi autobiographical movie. Those who know the director personally can never see actor Tovino, they can see Salim Ahmad throughout the film.

It's definite that this film showcase the career best performance of actor Tovino Thomas till date. Let it be just a beginning, hope he will conquer more heights.

Opening shot, sequence after the title animations etc were wonderful. There is no need of saying anything about the legend Madhu Ambat or his cinematography. Just perfect is the word, nothing more nothing less that requires for the movie was shot.

Santhosh Raman is a rare production designer who knows exactly what the director needs. Getting the right result from the right things is not an easy job.

Oscar winner Resul Pookutty is another example of perfection. Salim Ahmed is keen on choosing his crew. Today, those Directors who add accuracy and perfection to their work is hard to find.

Kerala has the most number of film makers, hope they accepted the movie very well. Those who haven't seen the movie, go ahead and watch it at the earliest.
