Neram - Hotel California - Bharya Athra Pora - My 3 in 1 Movie Review


Simple story, events happening in the lives of fews people in Chennai city in a day, told in an entertaining manner by Debutant Director Alphonse Puthiren who is also the writer and editor of the film. The simple story told in non-linear pattern, even though common in Mollywood now a days, makes it look complex and exciting. The rusty color tone of the film is suited for a story set in Chennai. Another big plus is the BG score - one of the best works of the year without a doubt. Editing is crisp, and the film is racy under 1hr 50mins run length. Nivin Pauly was good. Nazriya bowled over everyone with cute expressions and acting and is here to stay [Heard that many big shot Telugu producers are waiting for her dates !!]. Shammi Thilakan & Manoj K Jayan rocked in the cameo length roles. Simha, the villain was also good. Its a must watch this summer - Go for it 3.75/5

Hotel California

Watched this movie after reading so many negative reviews, but I personally liked the film very much. A Perfect Priyadarshan type entertainer - Mistaken identities, confusions etc - suited for Adults Only. There is plenty of humor in the film. Even the BG evokes laughter in many scenes. Direction was Okay. Camera & Editing were good, made the film look chick, stylish and trendy.  Biggest plus of the movie is Joju, he rocked big time, the next Biju Menon for sure. Jayasurya never looked better on screen, even though had little to perform, he excelled in whatever he had to do. A non-brainer adult entertainer for the masses, loved it more than Trivandrum Lodge 3.25/5

Bharya Athra Pora

Verutha oru bharya team reunites in this family entertainer. BAP is like VOB reloaded, Jayaram once again plays the husband with some issues. Gopika plays the lovely house wife. They are on the verge of a divorce and something happens to their kid which changes their lives for ever. The film sadly is nowhere near VOB. The saving grace and the factor that holds the film through is Jayaram, he is incredible as the alcoholic school master. Rest of the cast doesn't get much scope. Compared to VOB its low in humor content and high in melo drama. Overall its an Average watch 2.5/5
