One of the Finest Movie Experience
18 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Watched Manjadikkuru today ! It was one of the finest movie experience.

The movie really looked at the world from a child's perspective. Every single scene is inundated with sweetness and the innocence of children. It is such an extraordinary work of movie-making that it is in a realm of movies that are able to connect with anyone who remembers their childhood. It is a children movie which will be equally enjoyed by adults, and that's simply because it will take any adult back to their childhood days,

There are so many things that I liked about the movie , which includes a great cast ,The characters were believable and immaculately portrayed. Especially the kids, they will definitely tug at your heartstrings with their innocence, and their performance is stunning to say the least and only the hardest of souls will not be moved. Rest Everyone did their role beautifully , the whole cast was superb . Now about the crew, Cinematography is beautiful , the images are haunting, Make up and Art deserves special mention ! The Score is superb and music is used wisely , the simplicity of the movie is maintained in the music as well .

What captivated me most about the film was that the story was told so well. the pacing is perfect,It's hard to find a good story teller, and it seems that we can trust Anjali with this.The story is simple, but its spellbinding and so riveting, that it takes us right into the world of those kids .This movie has a soul and every frame emotes such innocence that I have never seen much in Malayalam movies.

I was extremely impressed with the movie and moved by the simplistic and powerful effect the film had on me. This shows that the simple things in life are often more important. I was thinking, If we embraced the Kid in all of us the world would be a better place .

So go and grab your seat and watch this movie , I assure it will keep you entertained with a nice story , lot of funny moments, some silent smiles,a journey back to your childhood and a good climax.
