'C U Soon' to 'Drishyam 2': 8 Malayalam films made entirely during the pandemic
MollywoodIn the lockdown, several wonderful films were made, cleverly camouflaging the limitations of shooting with restrictions by writing stories that justified it.CrisThe months ahead had looked gloomy for the Malayalam film industry when a government order in March 2020 asked all production work – shooting, screening, distribution included – to be stopped immediately. Covid-19 had just broken out all over the country. By June, the government slowly began lifting restrictions. At first, they allowed television series to resume work with minimal crew and following Covid-19 protocols. Movies were next on the list. But producers got together and decided to take it slow until the finished films – more than 60 of them – could release first.

‘Irul’ review: With too many unanswered questions, Fahadh thriller is a let-down
ReviewWhen the pieces of the puzzle fall in place, you are left with a giant Eh rather than an Aha. Sowmya RajendranWith three talented actors in the cast, Naseef Yusuf Izuddin’s Irul had set up high expectations before its release on Netflix on Friday. The premise is promising. A young couple stranded in a house with a stranger they cannot trust.

ReviewA subtle gender role reversal has been effected in the films of this anthology, by three brilliant directors – Jay K, Aashiq Abu and Venu.CrisAlthough the movie is titled Aanum Pennum – Male and Female – you tend to remember more of the Pennu in it. All three films of this anthology have equal participation of man and woman in its neatly woven tales. If you look carefully, it is not that there is more of the woman than the man. It is that a subtle gender role reversal has been effected in the films, by three brilliant directors – Jay K, Aashiq Abu and Venu. The anthology begins with Savithri, Jay K’s contribution.
