Masala Republic Malayalam Movie
I never thought the ban on Paan Masala could bring about such a catastrophe on the state. Honestly. I'm talking of a flick called 'Masala Republic' that is more injurious to your health than anything chewable out there.
It all starts off with an official ban on Paan Masala being slapped on the state that sends Pan users into a frenzy. Quite understandably, black markets thrive pretty soon, that cater to the demands of traumatized Pan users. Along comes Shambhu (Indrajith) a cop who has been assigned to bring the black marketers to book.
One non-event follows another in quick succession so much so that you give up counting soon after. There comes a point when you sit and wonder where this could all be heading. Soon after, you give up and let things take their toll.
I wouldn't really blame the debutante director since he does display the film maker spark here and there. But the writing is so shoddy that it would be impossible to create a sensible film from the appalling script.
To add to our woes the film has a considerably lengthy running time, given the very insufficient material that it has at hand. This makes it increasingly difficult for the viewer as 'Masala Republic' winds on and on without any signs of a conclusion anywhere near.
I wonder if it was just me or if somebody else also had the inkling that a sequel might be in the offing. Gawd! Now that is one scary thought indeed.
It's not every day that you get to see an actor like Indrajith in a senseless role as this, and I haven't got a clue as to what lured him to the project. It's only with a sense of astonishment that you can watch the actor in action here, and this bewilderment that I'm talking about is courtesy a sense of disbelief at what the actor has been put through in the film.
There's a bunch of young actors led by Vinay Fort and Co adding up even further to this mess, and cacophony is the word that comes to your mind. Hamming at their best, they lend their little bits to the disarray as well. And what is Aparna Nair even doing in this film?
Neither do the technical aspects deserve a detailed analysis. When the focus is on the inanity of affairs, everything else pales in comparison, and it would suffice to say that the film, offers no opportunities to go gaga over any of its technicalities.
No amount of statutory warnings would serve to keep the hapless viewer off the contaminants that 'Masala Republic' generates. Cough, choke and spit your way through it if you please, but this Paan is very unlikely to be of your taste.
