Dud Chillies
4 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie is sleaze to say the least. The director Shaji Kailas had churned out some good movies during the start of his career teaming up with script writer Ranji Panikker and Suresh Gopi. But after they split he started making his own brand of movies which are mostly hero centric. He tried his hands with Mohanlal and found a perfect match in him for Mohanlal enjoys the biggest fan base in the state. Raising an 'oh so natural' actor like mohanlal to the status of a demi-god was the director's first sin. But then, the audience had the last laugh as they rejected their later movies with disdain and before he knew it, Mohanlal, the actor was in deep trouble. Even with a huge fan base, the actor found it really hard to recoup his lost image of a simpleton and slowly started to pick up the right kind of roles and movies. He again emerged as a power to be reckoned with as his movies started mixing his superman and simpleton image skilfully. But whenever he teamed up with Shaji Kailas, they produced a dud.

***SPOILERS***

Now, here they come again to give us another cr*p. Red Chillies starts like 'Aaram Thampuran', the only difference being the backdrop. OMR (Mohanlal) is a millionaire don who owns an FM station in Kerala(!!!) the name of which is 'Red Chillies', a team of 9 girls. The scene cuts to Kerala where an evidently noble politician (Thilakan) is giving speech against OMR. Then, there is a new year bash of Red Chillies and there's a corpse found in their house. At the same time there was also a hit and run case reported which cost the lives of 10 people including the politician. The girls are the suspects and they flee quickly. Now OMR, the don, wants to save his girls for he wants to save the goodwill(!!!) of his radio station. He comes to Kerala and sneaks into the court where the girls are being tried. When the police attempts to arrest him, he takes out a black coat and proclaims that he is a lawyer(!!!). The girls are acquitted after some stupid court room dramas and then, OMR is on a mission to unravel the truth. In the end, he understands the involvement of one girl in the crime, with the help of a camera affixed in a distant tree(!!!) which zooms into the number dialed by the girl in her mobile(!!!)(!!!)(!!!). OMR dials the number and finds out who all are involved. The worst part of the movie is its suspense. It is worthless, to say the least.

Performance wise, the movie doesn't proves to be a challenge for the highly talented cast. Everyone does their jobs pretty decently. Mohanlal looks good for a change though he has nothing much to do except walking in slow motion. The screenwriter could have easily did away with the stupid punch dialog, conversation to the audience, and dialogs which hits out on the other actors (evidently aiming at mammootty, the rival superstar). The scene where Mohanlal's photo is kept in the 'pooja room'(!!!) will be laughed at for the next two decades. The cinematography, editing, and background score are more than enough to cause headache for a couple of days. On the whole Red Chillies is just another 'Dud' Chillies. If you've seen the movie already, go get some rest... for you need it badly. If you haven't, stay away!

I wonder how anyone, be it a fan or not, like such a bad movie! Coz the people behind these kind of movies are making a fool of the so called fans and normal viewers.
