Must-see Malayalam movie of the year 2007
23 January 2008 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

One of the enjoyments this vacation to Kerala was watching the movie Kadha Parayumbol. While Mammooty and Mukesh play only vignette appearances, the protagonist of the story is 'Balan the barber' played by Sreenivasan, the popular filmmaker and non-glamorous hero of Malayalam screen.

The simple tale of a village barber's contention of friendship with the most sought after film star provides the thread for the story, which builds suspense, satire and sentiment to a touching climax.

Kadha Parayumbol, a clean film that takes audience through the ebb and flow of tension, without a wee bit if sex or violence, is a challenge to the genre of the so called Malayalam 'formula film'.

As storyteller, scriptwriter and lead actor Sreenivasan has proved once again that he has mastered the art of 2-hour storyboarding by fully exploiting the grammar of film language.

This film is also Mukesh's maiden production venture in partnership with Sreenivasan.

It is the must-see movie of the year 2007. Don't miss it if you can afford to see it at a movie theatre. I dare you; you wouldn't be able to walk out of the theatre without tearful eyes. Tears of joy I mean.
