A Kottarakkara Sreedharan Nair vehicle which is fairly good but never particularly memorable
12 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Okay, so, a movie about Keralavarmma Pazhashiraja, and the main lead is none other than Mr Kottarakkara Sreedharan Nair. Pazhashiraja is a Kottarakkara vehicle all the way . But while you expect something particular from the film, it turns out to be different. First, it is not a complete historical film. Actually, there's more drama in this one than history. Towards the end, it even gets a dark tone which I personally did not predict and did not like at all. The history does work from time to time, and it's nice to see the turns even though everything is predictable. Pazhashiraja is not the only movie of its sort, and many such movies were made later, like Keralavarmma Pazhashiraja. Which brings me to the next point and it is the fact that today while watching all these historical movies, comparisons are inevitable. Clearly, the best one of the lot is Keralavarmma Pazhashiraja, an all-time great historical film, which had the verve, the light and lively historical mood, the music and the excellence that Pazhashiraja lacks. Even Mammutti's unforgettable performance remains unmatched. Where acting goes, well, as said, this movie was made for Kottarakkara, and he does well, but it is far from being his best. He is excellent as Pazhashi. The girls do very well even if one expects to see them disappearing under his shadow. Rajasree plays Ammuthamburatty with grace and conviction, while Sreedevi is wonderful as Makkam. The supporting cast do well. The music is very ordinary and forgettable. Pazhashiraja is not a bad film and it has its moments of history and great drama, but they are limited, and I would rather go and watch Keralavarmma Pazhashiraja instead.
