Stuff I learnt through the Movie 'The King &The Commissioner'..!

  • The King and The Commissioner is the first super hero film in Malayalam.The two heroes in the Movie can do absolutely anything under the Sun and I seriously think this awesomely awesome film deserved a better title.Something like ‘The Iron Man and the Superman’ or ‘Rajnikanth & Vijaykanth’ would have been apt.
  • There was more to Amoorthananda(Ekalavyan1993) than atrocious wigs,loud screams and a saffron dhoti.No Saikumar can match the screen presence and charisma of (the late) the legendary actor however hard he tries.
  • Tongue is mightier than the sword.
  • RanjiPanicker’s fetish for firangi women and girls in saffron sarees has only grown since his Rowdram,Ekalavyan,Bharatchandran IPS days.
  • Pakisthan Army-Chief not only understands Malayalam but can also speak fluently in that language.He lives in a warehouse somewhere in the suburbs of New Delhi.However he should bol ‘BHARAT MATA KI JAI’ if he doesn’t wish to be killed by Indian IAS-IPS officers.
  • In a particular scene in the Movie,Joseph Alex Renji Panicker teaches one of the Villains us the difference between Patriotism and Jingoism.However the director(Shaji Kailas)goes one step further and  gives us a visual description for the latter in the film’s climax.
  • SamvruthaSunil (TV journo Nanda in the film)has got nice br lips.
  • The Movie has got three 3 cinematographersThe services of 3 talented cinematographers were wasted to film this load of crap.
  • King and the Commissioner is funnier than Mohanlal-Rosshhhann Anndrewwss’ magnum opus ‘Confident Casannovvaa’.
  • Mammootty(60) and Suresh Gopi (52)can still mouth page long multi language dialogues at a stretch without getting dyspnoeic.
  • IAS-IPS officers can  torture and kill anyone in India.
  • Indian Prime Minister is a weak,spineless human being who is afraid of smart,efficient beaureaucrats like Thevally Parambil Joseph Alex.
  • Renji Panicker’s verbal diarrhoea requires immediate treatment.The guy is already severely dehydrated.I fear he'll go into a state of shock soon.
  • ShajiKailas and Renji Panicker (The Commissioner-1994/The King-1995) made great entertaining films once upon a time.

I live near the Philadelphia region in the US. Apparently, this movie is coming to a theater (that usually shows Indian films) near us around next weekend. After reading all these reviews, I wonder why is it that a film such as this is coming here?? I haven't seen the film, but after watching Shaji Kailas/Renji Panikker's recent flicks on Asianet I know or atleast I can predict the type of crap that is to be shown.

When will Ordinary or Ee Adutha Kalathu or 22 Female Kottayam get here?

Any way I might as well see Kahaani next weekend instead of TK&TC. Why waste $10 on crap even if it is in your native tongue?
