Discuss: Pazhassi Raaja

 nikhimenon@gmail.com

It seems that the 'Mammootty-Hariharan-M.T' magnum opus Pazhassi Raaja is worth a watch.The critics have unanimously loved it and so is the first day audience.With a budget of more than twenty crores,this is the most expensive malayalam movie ever made.Since i am not a great fan of period movies, i have decided to give it a miss(atleast for the time being).Anyways,if anyone of you have watched the movie,you can share your views here....

MY REVIEW ON PAZHASSI RAJA
watched d movie from tvm new y'day...twas houseful as expected ..started with lalettan's intro which got a huge cheer...:)...then the title 'PAZHASSI RAJA' which got d biggest applause...movie started off slowly ..got into d grooves of it only after 10 min...den came mammokka introduction scene...even tho it got a huge reception, the intro scene was kinda weak...many glamour scenes of ikka horse riding and all were shown in rather unimportant portions of d movie which could ve used as intro..after some time sarath kumar was introduced ..twas terrific infact wid a nice bgm...first half of the movie was filled with the gr8 screen presence of mammookka,sarath kumar and padmapriya n manoj k jayan...bgm and sound mixin was also amazin in it..noise of the sword airin was crystal clear..kudos to rasool...second half had the essence of the film..twas a perfect war film with the lil inevitable imperfections too..too many 'rope lifting of actors' stuffs...twas felt as if the stars were flying on d air...sec half had many emotional sequences which made an impact on me...Overal twas one such war/patriotic movie which shud be watched 4m theatre...even tho it had many good things in it, there were ton lot of problems and flaws which i prefer not 2 share now coz it wil spoil d movie lovers who haven watched it yet....
POSTIVES & NEGATIVES
1.MT-this man’s presence made dis movie realistic..even tho the legend couldn bring any innpvations as it’s a cut/paste from history ,the screen play was pretty nice…
2.HARIHARAN- he is the hero of the movie…direc was brilliant…3:20 min duration was kinda long but he made sure ppl were not bored consistently ..
3.MAMMOOKKA- dialogue delivery and looks were awesome..his look in horse ridin sequences were really nice..but PAZHASSI RAJA is no where near tha amazing characterization of CHANDU..comparisons are inevitabl..that flamoyancy was absent…fight sequences were not that good yet his screen presence was rocking…7.5/10…

[manage]
4.SARATH KUMAR- he was d man…gr8 acting and macho look…his fight scenes and reactions were perfect..9/10
5.PADMAPRIYA AND MANOJ.K.JAYAN-they were pairs in d movie so can be reviewed 2gether…both were rockin esp d former…padmapriya was stunning in action sequences ..her Malayalam diction was borin…manoj.k.jayan is often admired for his powerful acting in author backed scripts..he didn disappoint dis time also…
6JAGATHY[/b[- he was good…had a good role and justified 2 it…nothing spl in his acting…
DIALOGUES given 2 englishmen esp the villains were felt kinda dramatic at places but they didn disappoint me in deir acting ..SURESH KRISHNA and KANIHA were ‘ok ok’…MUSIC,CINEMATOGRAPHY,EDITIN AND SOUND MIXIN were nice which I could clearly feel in d best thea in d city…wel I could go on writing positives and negatives on d movie…but am stopping here…:)

Overall-7/10…watch it for its technical perfection.

MY FRIEND GANESH'S REVIEW ON D FILM
PAZHASSI RAJA IS A TRUE FILM VERSION OF HISTORY..THE FILM IS GOOD BUT NOT AT ALL TOUCHING.I LIKED THE FILM AS ITS TECHNICALLY ALMOST PERFECT.MAMMOOTTY HAD NOTHING MUCH TO DO IN THE FILM.SARATH KUMAR,PADMAPRIYA,MANOJ K JAYAN WERE GOOD.I THINK THE FILM COULDN FULLFIL THE EXPECTATIONS OF AUDIENCE WEL ATLEAST FOR SOME LIKE ME.CHARITHRAM ATHUPOLE MANASSIL THATTUNNA REETHIYIL KODIKAL MUDAKKI TECHNICAL PERFECT AYI EDUKAAN MT VASUDEVAN NAIR ENNA MASTER CRAFTMANTE AVASHYAM UNDAYIRUNNILLA..CHARITHRAM VALACHODIKATHE THANNE HEART TOUCHING AAKKUNNATHIL FILM THEERTHUM PARAGAYAPETTU.IMAGINATION THEERE UPAYOGIKAATHE CHARITHRAM PARAYANAM ENNAYIRUNNU UDESHAMENKIL ORU DOCUMENTARY EDUTHAAL PORAYIRUNNO.MTyil NINNUM PRATHEEKSHICHA LITERARY SKILLS UNDAAYIRUNNILLA.

NEGATIVES
MANASSIL THATTUNNA ORU SCENE POLUM ILLAACTION SCENESil MAMMOOTTYye ketti pokkunnath bore ayirunnu..Dramatic dialogue presentation of englishmen were borin..to be very frank the biggest prob is nothin much the memories of OVVG..
COMPARING WITH PREVIOUS MT MOVIES ITS TECHNICALLY BETTER.BUT PREVIOUS MT MOVIESil UNDAAYIRUNNA ORU VIKARA THEEVRATHA ITHIL UNDAAYIRUNNILLA.PERFORMANCEno STORYkko oru paridiyil kooduthal AUDIENCEne TOUCH CHEYAAN PATTIYILLA.AM CRTICISING THIS FILM BECAUSE ITS A GREAT CREW WHICH IS BEHIND THIS FILM.BUT THEY COULDNOT REACH THE MARK
VERDICT:-ITS A GREAT DEAL FOR UR EYES BUT NOT FOR UR HEART...

Pazhassi raja is a disaapointment considering the fact that it comes from legends like mt and hariharan

saajan said...

Pazhassi comes!!!
Hey, I saw the film...and i say truely that iam a Mohanlal fan to the core, saying firstly that this may affect my mind while reviewing.27 crores??? where spent this much???
Mammootty, with the body language suits Pazhassi well and good. He has done justice to the character especially at the last 20 minutes and in some moments. Whereas he falls bitterly somewhere. He looks like mammootty of some recent films in those moments.
The out-of-the-box revelation in the film is Sarath kumar, no doubt!!! He has all "veeryam" and "Gambeeryam" we expect. Scrit and Dialoges are good , not the best. The dialogues here and there are well written. The last dialogues (just before the climax fight) tounged by Mammootty is great!!! And to say truly and wisely please don't compare this with the classic 'Oru Vadakkan Veeragadha', it will only result in killing this movie. This is a diiferent movie done with sincerity and may not be as equal to that for at least some viewers and me include in that catagory. Songs are average, background score was not as pleasing too. I did not had Rasul effect any where.Visuals are quite good. Mammootty no doubt has got the good character in recent times and fans can enjoy to the maximum. But i feel he would have done much better 10 years ago. Jagathy and jagatheesh bores us. Suman and all english actors done well. Suresh krishna too has an impact. Devan also well portrayed. In short, a well made movie with great hype. This hype will certainely benefit the movie though this was a created one. 7/10

WatchED THE movie from Ganga ac dts attingal
awesome croud..
well i cOULDN't hear lalettan's introduction well because of loud noise &celebration.mammooty's introduction was simple& nice.
the editing & cinematography WERE superb &frames lookED great
sarathkumar & manoj kjayan were amazing
mammooty sir was awesome as pazhassiraja.
but only thing i felt wrong was that the film was dragging at someplaces.
i rate 7.5/10

thanks guys for the reviews

Panicker said...

i suppose u shudn't give it a miss, as u have successfully endured 'works of art' such as Robin Hood, Puthiya mukahm and even Pattanathil ghost.

May be the fans' enthusiasm, as well as the effects of the huge hype, will die down in less than a month, and you'll be able to watch it in a peaceful theater ambiance.

If it's goin 2 be in theaters when I reach India in December, I'll watch it. just got curious by the mixed reviews and MT's claim of its being a magnum opus.

nikhimenon said...

yup will surely try to see it probably within a month
