Instant Movie Review #20 (OK Bangaram)

Mani Ratnam's - "OK Bangaram"

1) Cinematograph
2) Music
3) Cast & Performances
4) Production Design

1) Story and Screenplay

Plot: In a contemporary world, OK Bangaram takes place in Mumbai and after an interesting first encounter, Adi and Tara become friends in a flash, as they find out that they share the same thoughts and opinions about marriage and many little things. Will the couple endure and carry through their relationship in love? 

Analysis: With one of the best storytellers in the business, Mani Ratnam, this film entirely suffers from a perplexed structure; many scenes for the movie feel random, slapdash, and it's either a hit or a miss. I certainly appreciate the mod offbeat storytelling aspect of the film, but when the screenwriter is trying to present a particular scene, he must make sure that it carries some importance to the content.

Bummed out with a sluggish story and screenplay, the cinematography is surely an astounding aspect in the movie. Every single frame in the movie had its own exquisiteness and magnificence, mainly PC Sreeram and the crew behind the camera and lighting department should be admired for their efforts.

Rahman's music stands out as another fascinating aspect, as it helps the movie throughout the process and renders support when it's needed.

Performances: The cast absolutely looks refreshing in the film, Dulquer Salmaan, and Nithya Menen were captivating and lovely in the movie. They had the perfect chemistry between each other and it surely worked even with a dull premise.

Verdict: Overall, OK Bangaram is a light-hearted movie filled with happy moments which are not plausible, as it never feels imposing. Watch it for the incredible camera work, euphonious and the appealing cast. 

My Rating - 2.5/5
Grade - C+ (It deserves your attention for a while!)

Vaayai Moodi Pesavum – Movie Review

Verdict: “Highly Entertaining and thought provoking”

Vaayai Moodi Pesavum is a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual movie directed by Balaji Mohan, the director who made a remarkable debut with Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi. It has Dulquer Salman, son of Mollywood Superstar Mammotty and Nazriya Nazim in the leads. It also has Madhoo, Pandiyarajan, Robo Shankar & John Vijay playing in pivotal roles.

The film takes place in Panimalai, where people are affected by a mysterious disease caused by H10N10 virus which makes them dumb. Many people are infected by the virus and how the outbreak of this diseases cause problem in their life and how do they finally find the solution forms the plot.

Director Balaji Mohan had come up with an entirely different concept and made it into a beautifully sculpted film with unique narrative style and well written screenplay. The first half was a laugh riot. The director himself appears as a News reporter, reporting the happenings in Panimalai in a mocking way. He does justice to the film’s title in the second half of the movie.

Dulquer Salman plays a door-to-door salesman. He sells the product an adhesive with his eloquence. He is a perfect match to the warm hearted character. He is attractive and sure to become girls’ heartthrob.

Nazriya Nazim plays the role of a doctor who is shy and reserved and is being controlled by her boyfriend whom she is not interested with. Her onscreen chemistry with Dulquer Salman is admirable.

All the other supporting actors had enough screen space to show their acting skills. Robo Shankar and Pandiyarajan were exceptionally good and they were the most hilarious ones in the movie while portraying the roles of “Mattai” Ravi and Minister respectively.

Cinematography and Background scores were top notch in the film. Whether capturing the beauty of the Western Ghats or showing the fully furnished houses or hospital, Cinematographer Soundharajan makes no mistake and pictures them in an exquisite way.

Debutant Music Director Sean Roldan keeps the momentum of the film with his background score. The bgm was stupendous during the second half, where it required the most.

Editor Abhinav Sunder Nayak has done a fair job in his work and gives the ensemble list of supporting cast their space and keeps the movie engaged.

Finally, Vaayai Moodi Pesavum is an entirely different approach in the contemporary era of filmmaking. Balaji Mohan had delivered a highly entertaining movie which also provokes some thoughts that may even change your way of living in the end. Vaayai Moodi Pesavum is definitely one of the finest movies of the year and Kudos to Director and his whole team.

My Rating - 3.75/5
