Watched Pazhassi Raja saturday @ Innovative. Movie is very good and superb performance by Sarath Kumar, Padmapriya and MK Jayan. Mammooty was good but not great (may be because of his age he was not convincing especially in Kalarippayattu seens).

My rating - 3.5/5

Tech perfection - 4.0/5

Anyone know the total collection till date? Even after few weeks of release there were decent crowd to watch the movie in bangalore.

Read a joke on Angel John:

A guy went to see Angel John after having Chicken Biriyani. He comes back home and tells his friend that he shouldn't have had chicken biriyani before going to the movie. Friend asks why?..The answer was "Padam kandappol vayattil irikkana kozi polum koovi" [After seeing the movie , even the chicken inside my stomatch started to crow].

Was too busy last week

Angel John : 2/5

Went to see 2012; didnt get ticket and hence went for Angel John. I understand this movie was made for the Shanthnoo who is the son of Bhagyaraj! The first half is fun and then Lalettan comes . Gawd! Hope none gets a son like this


Swantham Lekhakan: 3/5

The story is of a reporter of a local newspaper who struggles to get headlines which only can help him clinch a senior reporter port. 0

One might not like the story as it just revolves around press/reporters/ their life.This helps people understand how they work, the tension they face, how they create 'news'.

Robin Hood: 3/5

Crappy songs;used some ^& from B grade films

Apart from that its a nice film. The hero is on revenge spree and is helped by some to attain his goals. The technique he uses is simple but maybe un-digestable to one who see 007 movies and lot. Not bad.

Narein too plays a good role apart from Pritvi ( how had 2-3 super bikes, some cars etc ! )

Ividam Swargamanu : 4/5

Nice story. Had me pinned to seat ( kind of) even without a song/flashy running around tree scenes. Its what you call a family entertainer !

5 stars to Lalu Alex. Must see film IMHO.

Vietnam Colony (in English) 2/5

Avatar actually.

Saw Ividam Swargaman.Manyof the incidents on the movie are I felt real life things. Laalu Alex's Villain Role yields Accolades.
PS:What is the truck that Mohanlal is driving in the movie? A Dodge?

My Rating - 4/5 .

Watched Paaleri Manikyam - A different movie. A bit slow but well made.

Chattambi Naadu - Was watching a malayalam movie after a years gap and maybe thats the reason , I enjoyed the movie. Couple of my friends didnt like it .

Passenger - Loved it. The director of the movie is a Test Lead at my company and he wrote the movie without taking any holidays . Considering the fact that he did not get any peace of mind needed for script writing , from the coders, the movie turned out very well.

Mammutty's look in Chattambinad is similar to the erstwhile kannada actor shankar nag.Anyone noticed?

Watched "Chattambi Nadu" a week back I think.

Its not that great.

Its the "boy-runs-away-becomes-rich-comes-back-to-land-he-fled-from-to-take-revenge-and-clear-his-name-from-crimes-he-did't-do" routine with some additions and negations here and there.

Some new yet cheesy jokes.
Dialogs are truly "out there" and is rather profane. NOT a family movie.

Watch it if you want to kill some time and has nothing else to do.

It could be a Willys Jeep pickup.
