Chappa Kurishu - A commendable effort.
25 August 2011 | by praveenriyer92See all my reviews

Well, it hurts to say that I saw this movie in an almost empty theater. This movie could be included in the category of those which are trying to make a so called 'new wave' in Malayalam cinema. But I should say it went a little overboard. This movie may not please the average malayali cine buff. He may find it a little too raw and stylish.

The main characters Arjun and Ansari are played well by Fahad Fazil and Vineeth Sreenivasan respectively. Ample backup is given by Remya Nambeesan. The music by Rex Vijayan is passable. The highlight of the film is the impressive camera work and the fight sequence.

This movie is surely a deviation from the normal clichéd Malayalam movies but there was scope for much more from the story. Such movies may not be groundbreaking or trend setting but it sure does pave the way for future ones. Hats off to the director Sameer Thahir for bravely handling a sensitive storyline like Chappa Kurishu.
