I must say take off is one of the best Malayalam movies that I have seen in the recent past. The movie presents the true story of a group of Malayali nurses who was captured when terrorists took over the city of Tikrit in Iraq and their rescue operation. I must say to watch just as a movie, it is really a thriller, however, it can also bring light into the life and sufferings that nurses at large face, even when they smile at us and especially to the sufferings faced by those who were in Iraq in 2014 when it was attacked…
I love watching, I must say it is a must watch…
Movie Review: Lokpal (Malayalam)
Lokpal is a movie is directed by Joshy and stared by Mohan Lal. The movie bring forth story of a movement against corruption. It says the story of an ordinary man who suffered the injustice of the government systems. The story develops in and around his life, in a special way how he comes to react against the existing corruption in the society.
Though a relevant theme, the story could have developed in a better manner. The main plot is quite clear and evident. Morally analyzing the way proposed in the movie is not the right path. Every action cannot be justified by the end alone, the means is also equally important. The story also can be misunderstood as a solution to the existing problem of corruption by the youth especially.
The movie wants to communicate the values of honesty and friendship. However the whole plot of the movie can confuse the audience in communicating the same. The movie begins telling the story of a taxi driver, who works had for the sustenance of the family, his attachment to the family members and the things are well depicted. The whole turn takes place once his son receives a huge amount of money which was hid in his vehicle by a group of thieves. How he deals with this money is the rest of the story. Some of the well-farmed dialogues on this occasion can give the audience a feeling of the younger generation towards authority and the corruption that exist in the society. With the help of two of his friends he starts a new business, though they make money the movie clearly depicts the tension the main character is undergoing. There is a tension that is made clear between the truth and the reality of life.
The story is made beautiful with the subplots, but at times the subplot takes prominence and the main story line is put into confusion. The movie also can be bit confusing in powerfully communicating its message.
