one biiiiiiiiig yawn!!!
20 December 2008 | by rfreddySee all my reviews

Shaji Kailas tried his level best to ruin the career of Mohanlal by raising him to a superhuman level. Mohanlal a gifted natural actor, was made to do roles that required to utter lengthy and stupid dialogs which lacked natural tone. Initially, his fans lapped up each and every movie until when they got tired and started to stay away from them. Mohanlal deliberately tried to escape the superhuman image created on him and at last got successful with movies like thanmatra and rasathanthram. But still, Shaji Kailas has not changed. He is still trying to make a superhero out of every single actor and the time is very near when he'll be considered the most unsuccessful director in Malayalam.

In Narasimham, the director just ripped off an image of Superstar Mohanlal and recreated it in a different milieu. The story is wafer thin, but the dialogs are bombastic. How can you describe the feeling when you hear somebody speaks for around 15 minutes in a stretch and utters a punch dialog as stupid as "po mone dinesha" (and who's that???). I was waiting for the interval to have a breath of fresh air.

In short, Narasimham is a strict NO for all good moviegoers. Its a movie which raised mohanlal as a superstar and destroyed mohanlal as an actor.
