Refreshing and brimming with life
19 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Thattathin Marayathu defines a rendition that surpasses the most contemporary or avant-garde script with its sheer guiltlessness and a straight from the heart ambiance. The common perceptibility while watching something conceived by a 27 year old is strongly questioned by the overall cinematic brilliance. Thattathin Marayathu may have loose ends as would any masterpiece that our industry has seen. But the fact that it elucidates the innocence concealed in an intercast love story and crafts it with a simple storyline depicting the nuances of conventional characters is purely magical. The thread is finely woven with many unpredictable and impulsive moments that literally sparks your nostalgia and creates that I may have done this? feeling. The movie gently floats from a light hearted youthfulness to unperturbed romantic shores with ease and panache. The characters are well sketched and the cast delivers a sincere and candid feat. The untangling of issue towards the climax may have needed some slight nourishment. Nevertheless, the absence of a terrific storyline is often understated as it glides through the luminous performance by the entire cast, tactical and exuberant narration, Brilliant cinematography reinforced with some soul stirring scores by Shaan. Full credits to Vineeth for presenting viewers with a narrative that is not just refreshing but brimming with life
