1 of the very best in Indian cinema history and 1 of Mohanlals best performances; definitely Oscar award worthy
22 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fool that wrote the review for this movie must think he is some journalist or professional critic. I don't know who put him in charge but please do not go by his comments. He is obviously an uneducated unemployed fool who has nothing better to do. That's why he comes on here and makes ridiculously long comments. We will need coffee to stay awake from reading his long boring review. He also has not had the privilege to see it in theater. Praja is one of those movies that you can never quite get enough of. It is very realistic. Don't watch it if you are used to some romantic fantasy movie which is very common in bollywood movies and the terrible malayalam movies of today.

Renji Pancker and Joshy have done a great tremendous job. This is one of the very best movies in malayalam cinema history. It is also one of the very best performances of Mohanlal. Shammi Thilakan's character as "Balaraman" was also very noticeable and highly acclaimed. Renji Panicker is a journalist who sends his message, the truth, through awe-inspiring movies like Praja, Pathram, Mafia, Thalasthanam, Commissioner, etc. The other reviewer on here doesn't even know who renji panciker or who joshy is.
