May be hallucinations but????????
5 March 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

No one would have expected director Ranjith to come up with such a down to earth script.Ranjith who is popular(notorious?) for his action packed commercial movies(both as a director and as a writer)has this time taken a big deviation to make a film like 'Nandanam'.

The film set in the premises of Guruvayoor temple tells the story of a servant girl Balamani(Navya Nair).Her routine life,her dreams etc.Others among the cast are the hero Prithviraj,Kaviyoor Ponnamma,Revati,etc.She is an ardent worshiper of Guruvayoorappan but for one reason or the other hasn't been able to go to the temple till then.Dialogues in the film are good especially her private conversations with a photo of Guruvayoorappan.The songs are good and apt for each situation.The film has a fair bit of fantasy too.The climax too is very good.(We doesn't see Malayalam movies with such great climaxes).

So all in all Nanadanam is a great movie ;and it is worth a watch or more for good movie lovers.
