Director Priyadarshan and wife Lissy file for divorce

The rumours of split between the couple has been making rounds since the start of the year

This year Malayalam cinema had witnessed a high profile divorce as the 14 year long marriage of Manju Warrier and Dileep had come to an end. Looks like Mollywood is set to see yet another couple walking the same road as we hear that ace filmmakerPriyadarshan and his actress turned entrepreneur wife have filed divorce.
Lissy released a press statement saying,”It is with profound sadness that I am announcing that myself and Sri  Priyadarshan have decided to get separated after 24 years of marriage. I have filed for divorce today in Chennai family court. Both our children and close friends are aware of this decision. As you can imagine it is a very difficult period in our lives and I request all of you to respect our privacy.”
While the reason for divorce is not disclosed, speculations are rife that the couple had personal differences on matters of money and friendship outside marriage. If you jog your memory a little, earlier in the year the paparazzi was abuzz with the rumours of split between the couple. But both Priyadarshan and Lissy had rubbished all the rumours. Now with the news of divorce between Priyadarshan and Lissy, it seems like there were some truth in the rumours as there is no smoke without fire.

Iyobinte Pusthakam Malayalam Movie Review

A dark, murky tale of greed, lies, deceit, lust, love, enmity, gore, friendship and revenge, told very convincingly in true Amal Neerad style- that’s what ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’ is. The film starts off slow, moves on at a slow pace for some time with the plot building up gradually and then it picks momentum and moves on to a predictable, somewhat gory climax. The presentation and packaging is rather convincing, the film is much better compared to Amal Neerad’s ‘Bachelor Party’, ‘Sagar Alias Jackie’ and ‘Anwar’ and over-all it’s watchable. But, let me add, as an after note, that there is nothing spectacular or extra-ordinary about the film’s plot; the only plusses are the narrative, the performances and the technical aspects. The film wouldn’t excite or exhilarate you.
An Englishman named Harrison, who was engaged in tea business in Kerala, had taken in a local youth as his trusted servant, his ever-loyal dependent and had baptised the youth and rechristened him as Job (Iyob in Malayalam). Iyob gradually evolved into being his master’s trusted lieutenant, his right-hand man. Iyob is married to Annamma (Reenu Mathews) and they have three sons, who are named Dmitri, Ivan and Aloshi by Iyob’s master after his favourite characters from Dostoyevsky’s ‘The Brothers Karamazov’. Soon the master leaves for England, only to die on the way. Meanwhile Iyob, following his master’s death, takes control of the household and assets and even throws out the pregnant Kazhali (Lena), who was rechristened Nancy and who had eventually become Harrison’s lover and second wife. Though Kazhali, held by all as sort of a witch, is thrown out by Iyob, Annamma and young Aloshi visit her and her young daughter Martha. Aloshi and Martha get closer. One night, Aloshi leaves the place after witnessing an atrocity committed by his elder brothers and lands up in Kochi.
Years later, Aloshi (Fahadh Faasil), now grown up, is in the Royal British Navy. He is one of those navy men who lead a mutiny against the British and are thus dismissed from service. He comes back home, to Munnar, after many years. At home, Iyob and his two elder sons Dmitri (Chemban Vinod Jose) and Ivan (Jinu Joseph) continue to reign over the locals, suppressing them all by force. Dmitri is married, though not happily, to Rahel (Padmapriya) while Martha (Isha Sharvani) lives along with her now mentally derelict mother. It’s from here that the story takes off...
Well, the story is narrated convincingly well, the performances are good and above all, the film is technically brilliant and with a very good background music score. But the story doesn’t keep you engrossed; the pace is sluggish at times and there is nothing much to thrill you. There is nothing about the story that makes you sit glued and attentive and added to all these, the element of predictability makes it a film that you can watch without getting bored and soon forget it and move on... That’s it, in a nutshell- not bad, not too impressive either, watchable yet forgettable, good performances, excellent support on the technical and music side but still unable to thrill or excite you. The film definitely has the Amal Neerad stamp on it. It’s better than ‘Sagar Alias Jackie’, ‘Anwar’ and ‘Bachelor Party’, but there is nothing special or spectacular about ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’. Watch it or just ignore it, you don’t gain or lose much either way...
Fahadh and Jayasurya are the most notable guys among the cast. and Jayasurya are the most notable guys among the cast. Fahadh as Aloshi and Jayasurya as Angoor Rowther, the shrewd businessman from Tamil Nadu, excel. Lal does a neat job of his role. Vinayakan, Chemban Vinod Jose and Jinu Joseph are good. Padmapriya suits her role perfectly well while Isha Sharvani too is good. All the others suit their roles perfectly well. There is nothing negative to be said as regards the performances in the film...
Technical aspects
Amal Neerad, who is the cinematographer as well, does an excellent job and each frame speaks tonnes of his technical expertise. Praveen Prabhakar as editor and Sabu Mohan as the art-director too have done good work.
The background score is excellent and matches the tempo of the film perfectly well. Coming to the songs, they are quite forgettable and some of them are exactly similar to the ones in earlier Amal Neerad films.
Dialogues penned by Syam Pushkaran are good, but coming to the screenplay, penned by Gopan Chithambaran, though it’s good, you don’t feel the heat and the thrill. This affects the totality of the film.
As director Amal Neerad has performed, as said earlier, better than ‘Bachelor Party’, ‘Sagar Alias Jackie’ and ‘Anwar’. He has tried to achieve a balance between content and style and is less obsessed with technicalities this time. He is in control of things, but had the script been a tad better and had the film worked out better as regards the tempo, ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’ would have been much better.
Verdict- Not bad, not too impressive either, watchable yet forgettable, good performances, excellent support on the technical and music side but still not thrilling or exciting...

Varsham Malayalam Movie Review

Varsham Review

Varsham is one of the much awaited movie of the year and everyone had high expectations on the film. It was mainly because of two factors. One is that it is directed by Renjith Shankar who is fresh from the success of his last film ‘Punyalan Agarbatis’ with jayasurya and the second factor is the hero of Varsham, Megastar Mammootty is on a comeback trail after he had some horrible times in the last four years. The appreciation he got for his performance in Munnariyippu and an average success of his last film Rajadhi Raja made this film Varsham all of importance for him. He is the producer of the film too.
Varsham tells the story of Venu who is running a finance company called Anand Finance. Anand is the name of his only son. Venu and wife,played by Asha Sarath, leading a rich life  with their son. They don’t have much of a respect  towards the lower class of the society and they have high hopes on their son. They want to make him a doctor and at the same time urges him to be the numero uno in everything he does. Venu also plays some dirty tricks to accumulate wealth in his company for his son. He had some friends who is working on the finance field and we are shown that they have some kind of jealousy towards the growth of Venu’s business company.
But unexpectedly Venu’s son died of cardiac arrest and that shattered all his dreams and life. From that moment his attitude to life has changed and in the mean time his rivals are in pursuit to take over his Anand finance. Later the film shows Venu’s efforts to do good in life in the name of his son and how he managed to win the hearts of the people.
Varsham is a highly emotional melodrama which is more focused on making a serious story telling than to entertain the audience. Because of that, film is lagging in most parts and its not likely to be a  smashing hit or something like that. All artists were performed well and hats off to Mammukka for his wonderful transformation as Venu. What pull the film a little backward is the script and direction of Renjith Shanker to be honest. The script was good but do not had enough depth to make the audience to move with the story.
Direction also was not as good as he did in Punayalan Agarbathis. Story is highly predictable  and overdose of emotion made it too slow for the audience to digest. Technical sides and music was good but not extra-ordinary. On the whole ‘Varsham’ is a film that failed to live up-to the the level of expectation it has raised but not a disappointing affair from Renjith Shanker. It could have been better if a little bit more effort was taken to make the script and the emotional level was on a digestible mark.  Its not a paisa vasool film who wants to get entertained but its an above average affair who is a serious film follower.

Money Ratnam Malayalam Movie Review

‘Money Rathnam’ is an enjoyable fun-ride for those who are on the look-out for some entertainment. It’s a comedy thriller that’s OK for a one-time watch and mixes humour, some action and some human element too.

Neil John Samuel (Fahadh Faasil), who is a sales manager working at a Benz showroom in Ernakulam, is going back home after a car launch and a couple of successful sales. He misses his bus and as he is waiting for the next bus, sees a bar near the bus stand. He goes to have a drink, but on the way out things go a bit wrong and a bunch of goons, led by the very notorious Makudi Das (Joju George), is on his trail....

A bunch of locals, lead by Jaleel (Sasi Kalinga) and Joppan (Chembil Ashokan) are out to sell a precious stone to the very rich Isaac (Renji Panicker). Isaac, accompanied by the astrologer (Sunil Sukhada) who had advised him to posses the stone and carrying one crore rupees in a bag, which is entrusted with his assistant (Kochupreman), who is sitting in the back seat of the car, is out to fix the deal and buy the gem. But then, something goes terribly wrong; the bag goes missing and lands up in the hands of Neil, who happens to reach Tamil Nadu without knowing that he is in possession of a fortune...
Neil’s lover Piya (Niveda Thomas), who runs a charity organisation, is out on a mission to save a bunch of kids, who need urgent medical care and who are in want of money. She goes about hunting for sources of money to manage an event which she has planned to launch her initiative.

A pair of lovers from Tamil Nadu, who had eloped with plans to get married, get kidnapped and are dumped in a deserted building somewhere near Udumalpet in Tamil Nadu, only to be saved by Neil and a couple of other guys whom Neil meets on the way.
All these are blended together to form a light-veined entertainer that of course conveys some good, positive messages too. The film is handled well by everyone involved, on screen and off screen and with a run-time of just over 2 hours, the film is time-pass stuff and would appeal mostly to youngsters.


Fahadh is good as Neil; accomplished actor that he has proved himself to be, Fahadh proves that he is very much at ease with such roles too which demands some song n’ dancing, some fights etc and he has handled them all with ease. Niveda lends able support as Piya while Renji Panicker and Joju are convincing in their respective roles. All the others do justice to their respective roles.

Technical aspects 
Cinematography by Neil D’Cunha is excellent and suits the mood and tempo of the film. All others, editor Manoj, art-director Biju Chandran etc have lent able support.

The background score is good and suits the mood of the film. The songs too jell well with the plot and the mood.


Anil Narayanan and Ajith.C.Lokesh have done a balanced work of the script, bringing in every element that needs to be there for a comedy thriller to work out and not overdoing things as some of our writers nowadays are wont to do...Good job!


Debutante Santhosh Nair needs to be appreciated for delivering a watchable time-pass movie and handling all aspects with the deftness of a seasoned director.
Verdict- Expect nothing serious or great; an enjoyable fun-ride for those who are on the look-out for some entertainment...

'Njan' Malayalam Movie Review: Watch it for Some Prodigious Performances

"Njan" goes through the chronological, casual, nonlinear and historical take on Kottur's life. The film goes through emotional and perceptive struggles of Kottur who lived in the village (name of the village is also Kottur) in the northern Malabar during the emergence of communism in Kerala. Though brought up under strong influences and political ideologies of a congressman, Kottur was pointed out as a radical by most of his political counterparts and his enemies.
"Njan" is not only the reflection of Kottur's political graph, but the director has also successfully managed to bring out the human behavioural aspect of the social reformer.
The film also gives a deep insight of the social, political and cultural life of northern Malabar during the pre–independence era.
Ranjith has come up with an excellent narrative style, which is rarely used in Malayalam cinema and "Njan" must be watched for his directorial and scripting excellence. The director has also made an effort to bring out the best of the medium of cinema by using visuals as narratives and by demanding the best performances from the actors.
Njan PosterFacebook/ Njan Malayalam Movie
The most important aspect of this film is some prodigious performances by the actors.
It would be unfair to credit few actors as best, but few performances make this film a worthy one to watch.
Dulquer had given out a mature performance, which will surprise few of his critics. He has not only managed to break the stereotype image of an urban youth, but has carried the film on his shoulder with his superlative performance.
Another performance that stands out in the film is by Renji Panicker who plays the devious and villainous character of Nambiar in the film. He has again proved that he possesses some innate qualities as an actor, other than his directorial skills.
Suresh Krishna who played the role of Kunjappan Nair, father of Kottur gave an effortless performance with his histrionics. Hareesh Perady made the character of Nakulan a believable one with his realistic approach to acting.
Another important aspects of the film are its women characters, who have shaped the personal space and emotions of Kottur. Out of all the women characters, it was Muthumani Somasundaram's performance as Kottur's aunt that stands out. The actress has perfected her role with such skills and techniques, and is her best performance till now.
The rest of the woman characters in the film played by Anumol, Jyothi Krishna, Shruthy Ramachandran and Pearly Maaney are also commendable.
Saiju Kurup, Irshad, Saadiq and Joy Mathew have also made their characters memorable with their performances.
'Njan' PosterFacebook/ Njan Malayalam Movie
Review of "Njan" would be complete only if we mention the excellent creative works by the art, make up and costume department, who have given the identity to the narration and the characters of the film.
The art direction of the film is done by Santhosh Raman, make up is by Ranjith Ambady and the costumes were handled by S. B. Satheesh. "Njan" might fetch them some of the prestigious awards of this year.
The music of Bijibal has managed to set the mood of the film. The songs were more of poetic renditions with some excellent lyrics, which went well with the situations.
If there is a drawback, which could be pointed for this film, it would be the lag that was felt towards the end of the first half. The film might not be comprehended by all as it gives a feel of high art that is more suited for academic discourse. Otherwise, Ranjith and his crew have managed to bring out a class film, which would be discussed in the critics' circle.
"Njan" is definitely not a typical filmy entertainer with lots of twist, turns or gripping moments but is a reflection of an individual's culture, attitudes, emotions, values, ethics, genetics, perceptions and social space.
