Thoughts

Like Stanley Kubrick once said, "If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed". Before the movie even starts, the director has already claimed this movie has no logic and the foreigners in the movie speaks Malayalam fluently. First of all, it's a gangster spoof comedy movie and Today I watched this movie for the nth time. Lijo Jose Pellissery, the mastermind behind this film actually shows that this type of theme can be made in Malayalam film industry. The only two cons I felt about the movie were some unwanted songs and they took lots of time for each gangs intro. Apart from that two disadvantages, the movie has few killer background scores and the Hollywood style of cinematography from Abhinandan Ramanujam will plainly charm you. If you step aside the so called logic for two and half hours, you can easily revel in a gangster spoof movie which is inspired from graphic novels. The performances were equally good and different like their exceptional costumes. Talking about the climax sequences, I was dumbstruck with the setup Lijo made in the final showdown. Overall, this is one of the bravest attempt from a Malayalam director till date and Frankly speaking I really enjoyed it.
