Agree! It is a total waste of time and I did not like it. I watched Telugu version with subtitles. Even Fahadh looked like a joker in it.

Agreed. Didn't understand what all the hype is about. We couldn't get ourselves to finish it and have abandoned it in between. It shows up every day in the 'continue watching' section but don't feel like resuming

The movie bombed in Andhra but is a rage in UP/Bihar belts. That's where the hype is coming from (as per what I was given to understand)

Watched KaaneKaane (Malayalam) on Sony Liv. Good movie. Pretty serious and great performance by all actors, especially Suraj !

At least a 4/5 from my end.

Re: The Regional movies thread!

Badava Rascal

Streaming: Voot

This is my second Dhananjaya movie in the recent times, I have started liking this actor for his dialogue delivery, his baritone voice and his choice of films. The movie story is nothing great to write about, its all about parents love, friends support and a love story all clubbed together to a good Bhelpuri mix. At some places the action scenes are totally unneccessary. Rangayana Raghu and Tara as usual excel in their roles as parents. Cant say its a one time watch.

I think people who already know Allu Arjun may not like it as they were expecting charm, dance etc. This is my first Allu movie and I liked his acting and enjoyed his atrocious behavior all throughout.

For me it was masala and paisa vasool without major screenplay issues.

Bro Daddy - Malayalam (Hotstar)

Seeing the trailers, i was expecting this one to be a movie with over the top acting and a whole lot of timewaste. I must admit i was surprised. Don't expect much from it, and it turns out to be a good entertainer.

Lalu Alex sure takes the cake in this movie, while the others do their part to add to the fun. As mentioned earlier, it's best not to go into details of the plot to avoid spoiling it for everyone else.

I'd recommend this for family timepass.

Completely agree. It was a good timepass and Lalu Alex was brilliant in it. Kept my expectations low so turned out to be a good watch.

Funny how we tune ourselves on what to expect.

Pushpa: Telugu/Hindi/Malayalam (Prime)

I shifted between the audio to watch this movie. I have a bit of contrarian view. I did not get massively disapointed. Perhaps because I expected it to be an out and out masala movie.

I enjoyed Allu Arjun's manerisms. What let me down actually was Fahadh Faasil. I kept waiting for his entry and when it happened, it turned out to be a damp squid.

Watchable in my opinion if you want a time pass masala movie.

I think Prithiviraj was very smart about it. Most trailers give a pretty decent idea of the plot also also reveal good scenes/one liners. This ones teaser was intentionally vague and I think the sole reason Unni Mukundan is in the movie was to create a misdirection in the trailer. I see no other reason why he was in it

Lalu Alex was fantastic. I mean his response- 'Why are you wearing others clothes and not buy things of your own' to Kalyani's 'This is Zara's top and Tommy's Pant' , age old joke, but Lalu's delivery and expression makes it hilarious.

Keshu Ee Veedinte Madhan - Malayalam (Hotstar)

Might not be to everyone's taste, but I fall under the rare category who thoroughly enjoyed it. Laughed a lot while watching a movie after a long time.
As someone who enjoyed Dileep-Nadirsha combo in parody comedy cassettes during childhood, this took me back in time.
