A Good Movie From Malayalam And No Acceptance
21 October 2015 | by liginmaneSee all my reviews

Excellent movie. We will see foreign movies and why not this, accept this good movie, Why Censering Good Movies ? We all appreciate the skills and works of foreign language movies, don't we have a shy. We should change our mind.Paplio Buddha is not a child movie or any other type movie, it is very excellent creation by the director Jayan K Cheriyan. If we don't look this movie as director's point of view everyone including juries also not accept this movie, if not include such dialogues and scenes in this movie there is no good movies will get to us.Social issues and exploitation should see as what it is otherwise movie will be a foolishness. This movie has done an excellent job in that category.
