Mohanlal’s Grand Master – Review

By | 2017-08-26T02:00:49+00:00 May 11th, 2012|Malayalam, Movie Review, talkies|

Mohanlal plays Chandrashekhar,a defeated IPS officer, who takes his personal briefcase of losses to work. He unlike Sherlock Holmes who uses cocaine, plays chess in office to keep his mind alert. Chess references abound in the movie, as a serial killer challenges Chandra to a game which combines crime and personal life. There is a trail of murdered women. Nothing is out of bounds, as Chandra accepts the challenge. Lalu Alex is the killer. (I'm kidding! he is not there in the film)

Because rather than big events, we have focused on big patterns. And while we disagree on a lot many things here - political, cultural, developmental, social, and personal, I hope we all agree that Kerala got it mostly right in the past 55 years. Because Kerala is the No.1 state in India, here we go, and as always we would like to hear your thoughts.

This is a question thats been nagging the boys and yours truly for years. In a recent meetup in San Francisco, the standing (also sitting and sometimes lying down) committee on "Figuring out what the hell Mohanlal talks about in his movies" watched Mohanlal's Raavanaprabhu.

Mohanlal’s Sagar Alias Jacky: Review

By | 2009-03-29T23:51:10+00:00 March 29th, 2009|talkies|

The movie spits on your intelligence while setting the record for the most number of villains killed by a single hero. Mohanlal kills around 14,565 villains with two guns. The villains also have guns, but as the Southern Travancore swear word goes - they are born to blow jobs, so they don't shoot with aim. The script is somewhat as believable as this shooting spree.
