Cocktail Of Class Act,Excellent Direction,Melodious Music
30 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bombay March 12 proves that relevant,thoughtful story lines are still not extinct from Malayalam cinema.The storyline of the film is crafted appreciably well by Babu Janardhanan and he has done a fine job by presenting it in the best way possible.The only problem with the movie is that it lacks the color and fastness of a peppy entertainer and may not suit the masses who go to the movies to get entertainment alone.The film can be termed as a thought provoking realistic drama.,one of the best in recent times.

Performances::As the promo said Mammooka does a character never done before and that also,excellently well with apt expressions.The film boasts his ease of acting and dialog presentation and is sure to give him critical and mass acclaim for his efforts.Unni Mukundan is a talent to lookout for the future and does complete justice to his role of Shajahan.He has got a meaty role in the movie and he have done it with full commitment.Roma got an excellent opportunity to bring out the actress in herself rather than the typical bold-girl image that she has.She has utilized the opportunity well up to an extent.Sadhique has done his career best performance as Shajahan's father and requires a thumbs up for his performance.

Some +ves::Background music by Prashanth Pillai requires a standing ovation and is the best produced in the industry this year,really in tune with the theme.Direction by Babu Janardhanan is good.Good lead performances.Cinematography by Vipin Mohan is catchy and perfect. Melodious Music.

Some -ves::Climax may not be appreciated by many among the audience because of its sudden encounter.The sequence of events may be confusing.

Music by Afsal Yusuf is melodious and suiting the theme of the story.The album has a mix of genres ranging from a fast paced Hindi song sung by Kailash Kher(not included in the movie) and a peppy number by Sonu Nigam.The music can be rated a 7.5/10.

VERDICT::Bombay March 12 is a class movie for the movie admirers and the elite audience.The film has an ample dose of good direction,drama,act and music. Ma Rating::8/10
