2 months and 3 movies..!

Had been busy with making a short movie during the last couple of months(by God's grace, 85% of the shooting is over now).Anyways did manage to watch a few new movies.Here is an ultrashort review of them.

This Amal Neerad directed 'Prithviraj' flick deals with terrorism topically,still with it's lush visuals,ultra slo-mo sequences and a decent story line( haven't seen Traitor' though )manages to entertain.Prithviraj is competent,Mamtha does the damsel in distress 'act quite well while Prakash Raj and Lal deliver solid performances.The comparisons with Amal's earlier films are inevitable though.
Verdict: Anwer has a story to tell which Big B and Saagar didn't have.
Overall-Racy and Entertaining

2.Pranchiyettan And the Saint:
Renjith's new movie 'Pranchi' is definitely one of the better movies of the year.It may have it's flaws,but with it's shear honesty,sarcasm and a brilliant performance from the legend 'Mammootty'(who delivers the thrissur slang with panache),the movie is definitely worth a watch.
Verdict: Don't Miss it!

Mohanlal's much hyped Padmakumar ' movie was a disappointing flick for me.Loosely inspired from 'Madhupal's Thalappavu' and Blessy's Bhramaram,the movie had an extremely disppointing first half(with some boring jokes from 'Jagathy Sreekumar' and Suraaj.The only saving grace being ,the stunning cinematography by Manoj Pillai.
Verdict: Nothing new.
