A Great movie with a Hitchcockian flavour
20 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bhramaram (meaning-'the beatle')

When was the last time one of you came out of a movie hall with a lump in the throat but with a kind of positive energy filed in your veins.Or with a heart that is half filled with a deep sorrow while other half finds itself with an uncharacteristic joy. Let me tell you I just got to experience all these while walking out of a show of director BLESSY's classic 'Bhramaram'.

While one part of my heart empathized towards our main protagonist in the movie,deeply, the other half finds itself filled with true joy which is partly due to how the movie managed to show the value of humanity and truth as well as because of the reflection by myself that a malayalam movie was able to travel all the way to that little corner of a place,that is my heart,which is quite uncommon nowadays.And the movie continues to haunt me well after i had seen it.

(*No spoilers*)

The movie actually portrays a simple story but the way Blessy handles this makes all the difference.The story follows 'Sivankutty'(played by Mohan lal) who is a high range jeep driver by profession, and focuses on a few days in his life and a few characters whom he gets to encounter in those days through which it tries to unravel his character to the full,his past and the people around him.Blessy show there is only a thin line separating all the good and bad or fear and trust. There is a certain HITCHCOCKian flavor that one could sense Blessy has adopted to unravel his story.

The camera handled by Ajay Vincent gives us breathtaking visuals and feel.Overall technically the film is excellent as well.

Now even with with all these if i have to pick one reason to say why one should watch Bhramaram it would be none other than the Legendary actor MohanLal's 'extra-brilliant' performance.(Sorry,i don't get another word to describe it).One of finest performance ever in an Indian screen. Most others in the cast,especially the guy who plays protagonist's friend, have also done well though few of them were some hiccups in terms of performance but that is very much ignorable.

Now if you are a STUDENT/LOVER of cinema please do yourself a favour by watching a good quality print of Bhramaram. There are people who try to degrade Blessy and his movies regardless of the its quality with some sort of agenda which itself shows the popularity and value of his movies. Regardless of how much you like it at the end, it will truly be an EXPERIENCE for anyone of you. For me it was one of the best malayalam movies of the decade and even one of the Best in Indian cinema in a few years.
