Notching Technical Elegance
PARAVA Soubin Shahir Parava, obviously simple in its context and treatment. I have been eagerly tried to watch this movie since it get released on theatres but unfortunately I can't. That's why this writing might not have any freshness in its approach because the film has been talked, appreciated and rated many days ago. But what should be the reason for me to write something about it? I am going to clear my point. Parava, a wonderful piece of work from the debut Soubin who is well known as an actor. When he turned to a director, like anyone else I also have some sort of questions in my mind; How would be his execution? As far as when look into the soul of Parava, it is amazing from the debutant. Parava, walks along with us through the streets of Mattancherry the views out there and also the lives. It centered through the lives of two friends Ichappi and Haseeb whom like any other teenegers love birds and animals. They have pigeons as their pets and they always wanted to make it to fly for the tournament. They are very much keen about their pigeons and they care it with great love and affection. What is in the film is that life pattern of two friends is simply portayed. The film has its deviation of subjects and lives when it goes to the life of Imraan, Shanu, Hakim and others. It also invited us to watch the friendship of these guys. Dulquer plays the role of Imraan outstandingly and it favors the entire decorum of the movie. Their small lives, love, arrogance etc are the subject matters revolve there. The film changes its layer when the character of Soubin (the antagonist) interferes into the life of Imraan, Shanu and their friends. From the story side the movie got its top notch ambience when we watch the killing of Imraan. Then the ambiguity around the life of Shanu and his friends that we felt at the initial part of the movie gets cleared. Then the parellel story of that guys (Ichappi and Haseeb) go through along with it. When someone asks me what is the story of the movie Parava, I will enter into a little bit confused stage because I can't explain the underlying story of the movie. For me actually its something a visual treatment or just an open up of camera towrads some lives. The title Parava itself is an open enitiy to state this film in one word rather than we can find out other derivations to the film. I should have state something more about the things that touch me in this movie apart from creative side. When it goes to technical aspect I like the visual effect applications, the sound mixing and the Cinematography in this movie. Visual Effects was done by Lavan & Kushan, Sound Mixing was done by Vishnu Govind and Cinematography by Littl Swayamp. The movements of pigeons were easily caricatured and restructred by the visual effects department and we realised the fluidity like the exact flying of the pigeons. It was the success of Vfx in this movie. When it went to the sound department the sound mixing is the notch elegence of the movie. Especially the murmering of pigeons recorded in its apt proportion which we feels that originality. Last but not the least the Cinematography. Littl Swayamp handle this department so smoothly and efficiently which captured the entire Mattancherry in its full aspects. Some techniques he used was outstanting. From the beginning to the end he adapt such kind of techniques. The mirror image at the initial part, the Point of View of the pigeon etc are some exceptional pieces in the film. Along with the writing department the technical side also favors to laid up the entire ambience of Parava. Parava, for me is actually a Visual treatment. As far as I'm early noted the subject matter deals with the movie doesn't have much freshness but the technique used by the director to execute it is so amazing. That's why the movie is somehow attributed fully to the Direction department. And how the director organised those technical side is the key point that I have to point about this movie when someone asks whether Soubin is a good director?
