Check out the full list below:

The Great Indian Kitchen follows the story of a newly wed woman who struggles to follow the customs of the family and be a submissive wife. You don’t need me to tell you that this may possibly be the story of most women you know, or many women typically in each household. And it is once again the Malayalam Industry that has yet again scored with a simple premise transforming it into an engaging watch…. Read More…

Love is the story of….well I will not be revealing the story here as anything I say will act as a spoiler and it might hamper your movie watching experience. All I can say is that this is a black comedy wrapped in a psychological thriller and it is bloody brilliant. The screenplay is such that it plays mindgames with you even after the film has ended…. Read More…

The story of Drishyam 2 takes place six years from the time of the horrid incident. Now anything else that I say will act as a spoiler. And an important notice – if you haven’t watched the first part then please do as this is a proper continuation of the story without which there will be little to no context of the drama that had unfolded earlier…. Read More…

Joji follows the story of an engineering dropout and the youngest son of a wealthy family who has sinister ambitions of himself becoming super rich. The story set in the lush green landscapes of Kerala is a quietly haunting yet a complex and layered take on Macbeth. The screenplay is a slow burn as the writers allow it to simmer in the heat. … Read More…

Nayattu follows the story of three cops on the run following an accident which is veiled off as a crime amidst the backdrop of state elections. If this one line does not excite you to watch the film, little things would! The story is thrilling,  hard hitting and by the end of it thought provoking. The screenplay sets off slowly bringing the audience abreast with the storm which is to follow. In this period, you are acquainted with many characters that have little to do with what is going to follow… Read More…

Madhuram follows the story of a group of individuals who bond in the waiting area of the hospital while awaiting the news of the recovery of their relatives. The one feeling that I got instantly was that this is such a sweet and heartfelt film. As I mentioned, it is indeed a hard time but the camaraderie between the individuals is so infectious that you can instantly drawn into the film. … Read More…

Kala is a psychological thriller which can also be termed as a revenge thriller about a man who owns a peppercone field until one day, a strange turn of events changes his life forever. For a better viewing experience, I am keeping the story under wraps but the story is simple yet engaging. The screenplay is an exhibition of how good the writing is from the Malayalam industry…. Read More…

Malik follows the story of a young Juvenile who is tasked to kill an experienced gangster behind bars who incidently is his uncle. Again, just a one liner to keep you interested but my words will not do justice to the kind of depth that the story has in terms of characterization and situations. As they say, there are two sides to the same coin, the story has loads of this element and more that makes it a satisfying experience on paper…. Read More…

Kuruthi follows the story of a young Muslim man who has his beliefs and teachings tested on a long and eventful night. And this is all I can reveal without giving out any spoilers. The story is super relevant especially in the times we live in today. The faith that we follow and impose it on others has been a norm in recent times(without pointing a finger at anyone). What that leads to is hate that is passed on from one generation to another over and over again… Read More…

Churuli that translates into a spiral, follows the story of two undercover police officers that venture into a mysterious jungle to nab a criminal. And that is all you need to know before you venture into this maze. The story might seem a routine one on the face of it but it is extremely convoluted. It was as if the makers had designed this maze for the audience to go around in circles… Read More…
