​ ​AYYAPPANUM KOSHIYUM (2020)

August 10, 2020

 The Right vs Might.

 My VR Critique Meter:

 

  • Premiered Date: 7th Feb 2020
  • Language: Malayalam
  • Runtime: 177Mins
  • Genre: Action, Drama, Thriller
  • Subtitle: Yes, English
  • Streaming Portal: Prime Video

 

The flick is about Right vs Might and a Good or Bad philosophical. A duel framed maintaining the tension all through the deadlock period.

 

Ayyappanum Koshiyum tells the story of 2 Protagonists who are each other’s antagonists as well but with a twist. From the very start of the movie, the duel started between the two protagonists/antagonist, holding the duel till the end. Koshy Kurian (Prithviraj Sukumaran) is a hard-drinking ex-soldier with a temper that lands himself in trouble often. Ayyappan Nair (Biju Menon), a strict-law insisting cop, but easier to the “right” side mostly, want to move on with peaceful duty and law execution but has a history of violence and vendetta. A cop with an Untarnished 27 rare years of service.

 

The premiere is beginning with, Koshy is traveling with his driver Kumaran from Kattappana to Ooty via a small village called Attappadi which is said to be a liquor-free zone. He is carrying liquor bottles above the permissible quantity. He was stopped by the excise and cops and was pulled down from his car while sleeping. Since he was full-on alcohol, started to make trouble, Ayyappan Nair was forced to intervene to make him calm down to do the arrest. When Koshy challenged him to show what he can able to do, Ayyappan Nair did register a case formally against Koshy. There the duel starts between Koshy and Ayyappan Nair. 

 

Koshy feels he has both the right & might to win over Ayyappan or anyone by all means to settle the score caused in the drylands of Kerala. Ayyappan Nair, knowing Koshy is just arrogant by nature and forgivable to the offense committed. As he hates the structure which is influenced to those with the influence and the pressure it generates, Hence, he fights back arrogantly.

 

Consideration of the acting, Biju Menon scores first with his standing and strong performance. To his parallel, Prithviraj’s arrogant look with his thick beard and powerful performance. Both Hero-Hero or Villian-Villan proceed gruesomely to the inevitable duel. The interval block where Nair says to Koshy “This space is not enough for me” with his powerful tone and subtle body language was spellbinding. In simple lines, the pre-intermission was on the hands of Koshy and the post-intermission till the climax was with Nair. Each reflects of their egoistic mirrors was knockout. Apart from the two majors, a bunch of appropriate and fragile characters who takes side to the duel. They play their own role to influence the progress towards the end game — but as in any duel, the end game is owned by the fighters.

PLOT & REVIEW


A love tale of Sujata and the priest Sufi.


Sujata (Mute) portrayed by Aditi Rao Hydari fell in love with a priest called Sufi portrayed by Dev Mohan. He was the one who does the call of the ‘azaan’, through a harmonious voice and he was one of the disciples the head of the mosque. When Sujatha’s father came to know about their love, He made her marry an NRI doctor Rajeev depicted by Jayasurya. When they two lovebirds get separated Sufi left his rosary with her as a symbol of their love.


Rajeev, Who was an NRI doctor in Dubai having a skeptical relationship with Sujatha. Ten years later, the couple came to know that the Sufi was dead. Rajeev plans to take her to their native to attend his ceremony. What happens next is the plot.


The flick has the same pace from the start to the end. The cinematography is usually wonderful, It absorbs the attention of viewers with the ambiance of Kerala. The music is really good and the songs were up to the mark. The movie has tried to show the love between the two which went in a different way.


Overall, The movie has missed being engrossing in the romantic melodrama.

Likes and Dislikes

  • The plot is preliminary and fabby writing which gives an uncooked movie. If the writer focuses on the acting and the expressions of the artists, there might be a likelihood of the movie gone solid.
  • The screenplay has also followed the same with the plot as it adds too many flavors of suspense which can be easily predictable.
  • The acting of Hydari is soggy, She was lovely in the screen presence but missed to be eliciting in acting, Since she was mute, Expressions is the most important tool which will add spice to the part, it went cross fired, She didn’t do that. Mass blunder to the plot.
  • The screen presence of the Sufi by Dev Mohan, we can see a halo on him.
  • The role of Rajeev by Jayasurya, He is the one who clenches the rope till the end as a jealousy husband and as a man who yearns for his partner’s romance.
  • Prime video has missed it’s another exclusive movie.

FORENSIC - MALAYALAM

April 08, 2020

Typical commercial movie with Mystery and Thriller topped up.


  •  Released Date: March 2020
  • Genre: Crime, Mystery, Thriller
  • Language: Malayalam
  • Runtime: 134 mins.

PLOT

A Forensic expert done a breakthrough in discovering a serial killing case as further victims are added to the list.

A protagonist thriller, Rithika Xavier (Mamtha Mohandas) is heading a police investigation of a child murder, she realizes that there is a serial killer in leash, she was asking a forensic person to accompany for the catch of the serial killer which Samuel (Tovino Thomas) is been appointed to assist her. Samuel is a genius with a reputation for overreach.

Samuel and Rithvika have an old connection. The screen presence of Samuel (Tovino Thomas) has engrossed in all the way like patronizes his junior and outshines throughout while reporting to his seniors. He is the protagonist of the movie subtlety considering the forte of forensic science.

Pre-Intermission of the movie is really good and made us guess who will be the killer of the child murder. The director has meticulously given the importance of forensic science by identifying and solving the crime.

Post-Intermission of the movie is a bit draggy and added more unwanted fuel into the screenplay which is not appropriate and grimaces.

The super climax where the perpetrator uncovers his whydunit of the killing is greatly portrayed and it is not plausible.

Overall, the movie is good, tried too hard to be clever which went half clever. But it surely a watchable one.

My VR Critique rating: 8/10

  • Plot: 8.5/10
  • Screenplay: 7/10
  • Cinematography: 8/10
  • Acting: 8.5/10
  • Background Score: 8/10

Missed

  • Plot and screenplay

I like the plot of the movie, but the screenplay is missed like over projecting the hero, climax car scene, Burma colony killing case in the first half which was not relevant which will obviously not stick to one’s mind till the movie end. Also the psychopath’s the motive of killing through Rithvika’s daughter is not passable.

To avoid of lacking in the plot, the team has mentioned that Psychopath not required any motive to kill, their killing is the motive in the title card.

Cinematography

The child murder scenes which will make us hard to digest which I thought of to be limited.

Acting

Tovino Thomas and Mamtha Mohandas has done their part very well. Tovino screen presence is very charming.

ANJAAM PATHIRAA - SUN NXT

April 01, 2020

​Best Crime Thriller of Mollywood…


  • Released Year: 2020
  • Language: Malayalam
  • Genre: Mystery, Crime, Thriller.
  • Runtime: 144 mins.

PLOT

The police are on the trail of a serial killer, but the killer is killing police officers, will they be able to catch the killer and solve the case in time?

Movie of god’s own country – Kerala, One of the beautiful state with a beautiful atmosphere, people, culture. The movies of Malayalam also has its own signature. Crime movies like Lucifer, Drishyam, solo movie has its own way of screenplay which won’t be there in any other language movies.

Director of the movie Midhun Manuel Thomas earlier movies like Aadu sequels are purely on comedy genre, this is his spellbinding writing it seems, He has given the wonderful script in Mollywood which has engrossed all language audiences. Moreover, The artist is not that famous, since the plot was good and intrigue it has taken it to the cloud9.

Anwar Hussain, A Criminologist working closely with the police department on solving crimes got hands-on solving serial killing case along with the ACP Catherine Maria team where the victims are police officers. Since the perpetrator is a genius hacker who has done a cyber-attack of the police department, the Police department is forced to take one person for retaliating the attacks, hence Sreenath Bhasi entering into the scene, His screen presence is worth watching, He has proven to be a hacker.

Pre-intermission of the movie, 3 abductions, and killing, leaving lady of justice statue with its eyes open, No evidence apart from that to identify the killer. In the post-intermission, Director has made some baits for catching the killer which actually worked out without disturbing the plot, In the climax scene, Identification of Perpetrator and the whydunit by flashback was very crisp.

The creation of the perpetrator by the writer is actually remarkable, Killer wants to revenge two police officers and one church pastor for the abuse of his sister if he kills only those which will directly point him and his sister name will spread all over the media. Since he was said to be genius by the criminologist, He has made some tracks to cover his killing and pointing two other peoples as killers.

When he came out to kill his last one, he got captured by Anwar and encountered by the police. Since one killing was left, Lady of justice, the killer’s sister is completing the revenge which was tremendous.

Overall the movie is one of its best for Mollywood and the lifetime watch list collect to all crime mystery genre lovers.

  • The plot of the movie is great. Screenplay also really good. If it was fast, It will be excellent.
  • The cinematographer has shown the shade of Kochi to have the pleasantness of the atmosphere which is good for one phase, but it was in the entire movie.
  • The acting of each and every individual is notified, especially the ACP role portrayed by Unnimaya Prasad, Elegant.
  • Background score is the hero of the movie, It resembles Raatchasan movie background score since it was the reference movie of all crime mystery movies which was released after 2018 in Indian cinema.
