Pretty Good
2 May 2019 | by vimalabrahamabySee all my reviews

City of god is a 2011 malayalam movie directed by Lijo Jose Pelliserry. It is basically a crime thriller and the film uses a hyperlink narrative.The film deals with 4 stories: 1)Prithviraj and his friend Sony 2)Rema Kallingal and his husband 3)Remya Nambisan and her friend 4)A group of tamil migrant workers(Indrajith and Parvathy) While the first three stories are interlinked ,the last one(tamil migrant workers) stands alone and according to me that is the major problem of the film. Almost all the actors have performed well.There us not much to talk about the performance of Prithviraj's and Swetha Menon but Indrajith along with Parvathy,Rima Kallingal,Rohini,Anil Murali ,Sudheer Karamanhave performed very well but what really surprised me was the performance of Chemban Vinod. Even though he only got a few scenes he has performed extremely well.He just nailed it.The handy cam work by Sujith Vasudev was just mesmerizing.Lijo has again done a brilliant work with the different narrative style and has also been careful not to add any cliché.The film is pretty good but could have been better if the script could have linked the story of Indrajith with the other three and also could have given much more role to Remya Nambisan. A must watchable for all those who love Lijo's work.
