Brilliantly Narrated, Visually Stunning, Great performances!
3 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen some really good Malayalam movies in the recent years but so far, this maybe the best. Kaiyoppu is incredibly captivating and rich in interesting and colorful characters.

Firstly, there's Mammootty himself and I will admit if any other actor had played Balachandran it might not be the movie it is, Mammootty is simply amazing, you forget who he is within the first five minutes. There are no punch dialogs like Prajapathi but you care about Balachandran a simpleton but an intellectual and as the narration progresses you want things to turn out OK for him as much as his friends do.

To sum it up the acting is strong, the narrative is compelling enough and its semi-documentary style direction by Renjith is consistent and provides clarity and pace with a brilliant background score.

I cannot say it enough: This is one of the best to come out of Malayalam in the recent years. Watch it, and you'll see.
