The last one - Rani, directed by Aashiq Abu and written by Unni R - adapting his own short story, starring Darshana Rajendran and Roshan Mathew, is the best one in this anthology of three short films. It excels in various aspects - direction, story, screenplay, subtext, casting and actors performance. The characters played Nedumudi Venu and Kaviyoor Ponnamma stands out the most in terms of performance, writing and the portrayal of a subtext which is not seen before.
The second one - Uroob's Rachiyamma - written, directed and photographed by Venu Isc, starring Parvathi Thiruvothu and Asif Ali in the lead roles is the best after Rani. The performance of both Asif Ali and Parvathy are appreciable.
The short film has certain frames which blossoms the artistic aesthetics of photography. For these, the veteran cinematographer Venu deserves an applause.
The first one - Savitri, directed by Jay K and written by Santhosh Echikkanam, starring acclaimed actors such as Indrajit Sukumaran, Joju George and the newly familiar actress Samyuktha Menon - is the worst short film among the three. Several dialogues were so irritating to hear due to the way it was delivered by Samyuktha, when it comes to her performance it was over-the-top sometimes.
Poor direction, outdated style of making, errors in composition and blocking were present in several frames.
The only positives which were visible was the good performance from Joju and Indrajit.
Except the first short film, the anthology is pretty good!
