Malik – My Flash Review

‘Malik’ has Fahadh Faasil as the hero and is helmed by Mahesh Narayanan. The last time this combo came together was for the experimental ‘C U Soon’, which turned out to be an interesting film.

Haseen Dilruba – My Flash Review

Take the Drishyam -1 template which is – the protagonist commits an accidental murder and then he goes about covering all his bases so water tight that the police is not able to pin him down at the end and he goes scot free to live happily ever after. To this, make some minor changes.... Continue Reading →

Cold Case – My Flash Review

Cold Case is a Malayalam film that has recently dropped on Prime Video.  The well cut trailer promised an interesting film where the genre overlapped between being a murder mystery/investigative thriller and a Super Natural thriller.

Karnan – My Flash Review!

Mari Selvaraj’s Karnan screams for attention right from the beginning when the title credits roll with background noises of what happens in a highway. Then we are shown some arresting visuals of a young girl suffering from seizures right in the middle of a busy village road and all kind of vehicles plying by, without... Continue Reading →

Nayattu – My Flash Review!

Nayattu is yet another addition to the growing list of Malayalam films where the script is the hero. It is a thriller but not the edge of the seat variety but more of a slow burn, engaging type.  Nayattu which means “the hunt” in Malayalam is of course about a hunt but, with a role...
