Malluwood Meets Miracle
19 October 2009 | by (Palakkad) – See all my reviews

The most hyped malayalam movie of the year, has gave what it promised, and more. The film is indeed the best period movie taken in India. For malyalies, this is a film that makes you proud to step on the lands, where these great warriors fought. The film is rich in content and technical wise. All the characters did their part well, Especially Mammootty, Sarathkumar and Manoj.K.Jayan. The makers don't have an intention to make the superstar rich with a great introduction scene and all for his fans. They maintain this standard thorughout the movie. Its not about how much each characters scores. The film is set up very beautifully in the 18th century. One thing i found interesting was the Character transition of Pazhassiraja. The king his is found with pleasant face in the beginning and with the film the character changes to a bold faced one. Thats was brilliantly done by mammootty. In fights, Mammootty was good , But Sarathkumar outplayed him in that. Manoj.K.Jayan and devan has played a role that will bring us a great feeling of patriotrism. You, whether whose fan , will clap for some scenes, especially when you see the British flag burning and the mammoottys 3rd fight alone. The team has proved that this small industry can make such huge movies. Hariharan was excellent in camera-work. MT did good work and gave some mind blowind dialogues. Resul pookutty gave our ears a mighty treat. Pookkutty said this film is like Gladiator and all. But , I don't think so. Gladiator is nothing compared to Pazhassiraja. Illayarajas music was good. And the song Adiyushasandhya rocks. Watch it and be proud of Kerala and Malluwood.
