a misty tale of the past...
5 July 2010 | by hrn-namSee all my reviews

'Devadoothan'..meaning a 'messenger of god' is a perfect example of intellectuality and experimentation in Malayalam Cinema..where the silence of the movie says too much at times..it's always the unknown factor or the quest for the unknown which is haunting & likewise, Devadoothan though depicting somewhat a clear story line has the viewer feeling that "there's something at the end of the tunnel". Mohanlal beautifully plays a music maestro whose urge for truth becomes the core of the movie..almost all characters are beautifully arranged & do deliver beclouded statements which add to the suspense & justify their roles..giving us chills and enriching imaginations, the background music fulfills its responsibility as being the movie's backbone...Devadoothan may not be a movie for masses, but stands out as an effort which can never be forgotten..
