Priyadarshan wants to be Milos Forman
1 September 2014 | by (Thrissur, Kerala) – See all my reviews

One must watch this movie, if he didn't watch "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" directed by Milos Forman. I think Priyadarshan worked hard to make a good Malayalam version of the movie & to include a romance part in between. What made the Malayalam version the best is Mohanlal's performance. But I feel very pity on the director who hardly tried to expose his own caliber and always tries to copy paste other languages classics. Everybody knows that he is a good director, but I think that he is a lazy guy. If someone takes a list of his copy paste movies, that number may be comparative to his number of hit movies. But he made Mohanlal to be the top actor and Mohanlal made him the top director.
