Pada – My Flash Review!

Close on the heels of The Kashmir Files, comes Pada a Malayalam film that is also based on a real life story that happened in Palakkad way back in 1996.  Pada meaning “Army” is about how a small group of people called the “Ayyankali Pada” take the law into their hands to get justice for...

Meppadiyan – My Flash Review

There are average or bad films with huge star cast backed by humungous budgets that get a lot of media attention. And there are some good films made with no big stars and with moderate budgets which don’t get much of media attention. Meppadiyan (“Above mentioned” in Malayalam) actually belongs to the above mentioned category.... Continue Reading →

Hridayam – My Flash Review!

If you were an Engineering student, now in your 30’s, lived in a hostel that too in Tamil Nadu, got ragged and ragged others, had your share of fun during student life but without studying, spent time participating in Cultural fests, eyed girls or boys and now sort of settled in life and in career, ...

Like the other recent fine... Continue Reading →

Is not a revenge thriller. Is not about how a crime... Continue Reading →

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. 'Malik' apparently was made before this and was awaiting a mega theatrical release but finally got released on the OTT... 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. While watching the film, it is clear that the film fell victim to this overlap. A skull is discovered... 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...
