Kaanekaane – My Flash Review

As I have been saying of late, Malayalam cinema is on roll these days. Kaanekaane is yet another brilliant Malayalam film that is now streaming on OTT (Amazon Prime) which made me wonder as to where do Malayalam films find such out of the box themes and mostly original! Like the other recent fine film... Continue Reading →

#Home – My Flash Review

Usually a review focusses on what the film is about. However, in this review of the delectably charming Malayalam film #Home, I would like to focus on what it is not about and you will soon understand why. #Home is not a murder mystery. 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...

Drishyam -2 – My Flash Review

After Bahubali, this must be the most anticipated sequel in Indian cinema. So much so, feedback on the film started pouring in as early as 3 AM on Friday after the film dropped on Amazon Prime at midnight!  While in Bahubali, the anticipation was over Kattappa ne Bahubali kyu maara?, here the anticipation is over...

Kappela – My Flash Review!

The film opens with many disjointed, slice of life scenes typical of Malayalam films, which establish the different characters. 40 minutes into the film, you still wait for something significant to happen. But these are some of the best moments of the film that bring the "today’s" life in a small town Kerala vividly before... Continue Reading →

Forensic – My Flash Review

This Malayalam film now streaming on Netflix, is another addition to the Psycho serial killer mystery genre in Malayalam. As you sit to watch, it feels similar to another recent hit – Anjaam Pathiraa. A lady cop leading the investigating team, investigation being driven by technical aspects rather than the traditional witnesses-evidence-questioning –leads routine and... Continue Reading →

Anjaam Pathiraa – My Flash Review

In recent times, there have been many films in this genre in South Indian Cinema. Nibunan, Ratchasan, Grand Master and even the recently seen web series Asur all these come to mind. Psychotic serial killer. Mysterious murders. Cops on trail. Killer/killers high on technology. Confusing and complex motives and finally the End. Anjaam Pathiraa (The... Continue Reading →
