Atheistic logics
10 November 2019 | by shyammukundanSee all my reviews

"Nalpathiyonnu" 41 Malayalam movie.

Movie belonging to satire genre.... interlacing politics, atheism and family affairs to give a full drama.

Biju Menon as Ullas, the hard core left activist with his atheist ideas trying to bring about social changes, suited well into the character. Saranjith, as Vava Kannan, the party-goon alcoholic, whose life events, lead the story.

Even though the original plan had lots of interesting events going on, the screenplay failed to knit these events well, for a smooth presentation.

Kannur party village to Sabarimala, the trip is interesting, Director has taken extra precautions, not to hurt any parties nor any religions sentiments.

6 on 10 for a atheistic logics.

Many characters, including the heroine is loosely knitted, director should be more careful. Even though Ullas is the hero of this presentation, the story belonged to Vava Kannan... his life, his problems, his alcoholic excursions. Saranjith has definitely did well his role as an addict.

For a Lal Jose movie, below PAR. ' Sorry.
