Alamara  (2017)  (Malayalam)
The testament to the success of LJ Films, whose daring for experimental cinema, has often gone beyond the so-called conviction. This is their purest of thought and the simplest of film. A daring formal accusation of the dowry system.
2.5 out of 5 (Fairly Good)  | Sreejith Mullappally (NOWRUNNING)
If I take the selfie, I would prefer have it with the dangerous people having untamed imagination. There were heads going all bonkers after the "Alamara" screening. The movie is a godsend piece of information with at times no comedy and when it beckons, anything but.

"Remember that time when you were in the middle of that scene......"

Said Jim Carrey to the 'overrated' Meryl Streep, whilst explaining the success of "less is more."

The Unsaid: Every now and then some layman in the street reminds you that even the most outrageous concept sound right, when wisdom prevails action.

The performers who are otherwise better pronounced - "You are simply the best!" - are pretending to sleepwalk through the movie but they are not. Even the clown being swapped places to the director's chair, would have pronounced the dowry as just that: Not a case of pandering but the wrong gift.

Producers Perspective: The testament to the success of LJ Films, whose daring for experimental cinema, has often gone beyond the so-called conviction.

This is their purest of thought and the simplest of film. A daring formal accusation of the dowry system.

"Well, you picked right up on it."

Carrey can cry wolf, but the boom mike is saved for some extra cushion.

The Plot: Taking cues from his own lunatic masterpiece that is "Aadu: Oru Bheekara Jeeviyanu": A bunch of friends have a freewheeling chat in Alamara.

What's it to you?

That format is the least expected, and way better than the one-time watch television movie. As the man behind The Mask had said: "God Bless."

The Thematic: Somebody had once told me that a review should mirror the film, I just now saw Alamara. Makes you go all bonkers no matter where, and you can choose between the purist and the layman. The focal point is a bid to resurrect the concept of marriage with family and friends. There are actors in this universe and then there is the metaphor, albeit excess or what, something which nobody but nobody gives dime a dozen.

Actors: Sonu Anna Jacob, whose face resembles greatly with Gayatri Suresh, springs a surprise in store playing the better half of Sunny Wayne. Many other good actors get cameo roles like the always fascinating Ranji Panicker, and the Kammattipadam fame Manikandan Achari.

They come along, and have a say in a film where the protagonist steal the show especially when the splinters test the boom mike. The last time Manuel had done that we got the "Bheekara Jeevi."

"Remember that scene when you were eating up the damn scenery and something fell on the Jeep?"

Do not even try to remember for this is not even Shaji Pappan's territory.

And, one more thing. That closing apocrypha is a real hairpin to reach right there in Sulthan Batheri. Man, that is a long way away for the selfie with the dangerous people: The lunatic comedian gone thoughtful rogue.

Review Rating: I liked it. The movie deserves 2.5 out of 5.

Alamara is a light comedy which will keep the spectators entertained throughout. All the actors have done their roles well, especially Renji Panicker and Seema S Nair.   Alamara User Rating
