Pretham Scores
19 August 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The ghost story has evolved over the ages in Malayalam cinema but most of them somehow end up still with many clichés .Similar tried and tested formula is used in Pretham also but is handled in a very different and in the so called New gen way. The last comic horror movie that comes to my mind is In ghost house Inn which was simply painful to watch. Adi kapyare was mostly a comedy movie with a hint of supernatural towards the end.

But pretham is about exactly as the title suggests it.The first half has some spooky thrilling sequences and lots of laughs.There are many subtle comic references to Manichitrathazh which is nicely done. Jayasurya has done a good job as usual and his new look perfectly suits the mysterious character of a Psychic. Aju varghese and Sharafudden deliver decent comic relief without trying much. GP is simply out of place and provides mostly blank faces and forced dialogues. Kudos to the director for keeping things tight and for not including any songs as well. All in all a decent family watch and a nice addition to the comic horror genre in Malayalam cinema.
