User Rating:
Clash of egos between a police officer and a retired army man turns out to be a headache for a tribal village. When the tension permeates into two families, things go out of hands. It's an engaging film with a powerful presentation of the fury and stubborn traits of two men. Read Review
Veyil Marangal (MALAYALAM)
Indrans , Prakash Bare , Master Govardhan Saritha Kukku
Director: Bijukumar Damodaran
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
After being displaced by circumstances, a three-member family living in an inland island is desperately looking for shelter. It might be an irony that filmmaker Dr Biju gives a colourful interpretation to the struggling tale of the marginalized section. Accompanied by a simple and subtle presentation, the metaphoric visuals remind us of the burning reality of survival. A blend of powerful theme and equally striking visuals. Read Review
Anjaam Pathira (MALAYALAM)
Kunchacko Boban , Unnimaya Prasad , Sreenath Bhasi Remya Nambeesan
Director: Midhun Manuel Thomas

Critic Rating:
User Rating:
A serial killer is on the prowl in the city targeting only police officers. The clueless cops led by a female officer and a private criminologist are on the hunt for him. The path of investigation in 'Anjaam Paathira' is hardly free from flaws yet the decent attempt is engaging. Read Review

Critic Rating:
User Rating:
A naive girl from a village in Wayanad falls in love with an auto rickshaw driver from Malappuram by talking on the phone. The girl's journey to meet him in Kozhikode becomes eventful. It's a simple plot that is beautifully elevated by intense performances and neat direction. Read Review
C U Soon (MALAYALAM)
Fahadh Faasil , Roshan Mathew , Darshana Rajendran Maala Parvathi
Director: Mahesh Narayanan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Unfolding fully through mobile device and laptop screens, 'C U Soon' is an unprecedented format in Malayalam cinema. The portions of the actors were shot separately following social distancing norms, but C U Soon is a real-time conversational film. The basics of filmmaking and storytelling always apply, and Narayanan's film excels in both departments. Read Review
Halal Love Story (MALAYALAM)
Indrajith Sukumaran , Grace Antony , Sharafudheen Joju George
Director: Zakariya
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Zakariya Mohammed blends religion with cinema within a cinema to make a thoughtful work on love and kinship in Halal Love Story. Always engaging, and occasionally too simple to a fault, this love story is not overpowering as Zakariya's first film, Sudani from Nigeria. Nonetheless, it is a timely satire on the two things most of us feel but cannot quantify: kinship and love. Read Review
Trance (MALAYALAM)
Fahadh Faasil , Nazriya Nazim , Dileesh Pothan Gautham Vasudev Menon
Director: Anwar Rasheed
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
'Trance' is taking a potshot at fake religious preachers, besides showcasing a highly energy-packed performance by Fahadh Faasil. Director Anwar Rasheed's brave attempt with a different plot milieu scores well at half-way mark before it hobbling towards the culmination. Read Review
Kilometers And Kilometers (MALAYALAM)
Tovino Thomas , India Jarvis , Joju George Basil Joseph
Director: Jeo Baby
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
For a travel movie, Jeo Baby's 'Kilometers and Kilometers' may not break new ground, but it finds fresh, respectable ways to tell a familiar story without many cliches. It is a story of Josemon, a handyman who finds himself stuck in Rajasthan with a foreigner and with many financial troubles running through his head. Read Review
Varane Avashyamund (MALAYALAM)
Dulquer Salman , Kalyani Priyadarshan , Suresh Gopi Shobhana
Director: Anoop Sathyan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Despite its familiar theme, 'Varane Avashyamund' is infested with typical ornaments required for a feel-good experience that is consistent throughout. It is a simple and uneventful family drama with the right dose of delightful moments. Read Review
Anveshanam (MALAYALAM)
Jayasurya , Shruti Ramachandran , Lal Lena
Director: Prashob Vijayan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Anveshanam' is an emotional thriller with a simple tale that happens in a night. In the conflict sets in a hospital, parenting and medical issues come to the fore. Despite the lack of pep up moments, it is a decent attempt to depict a relevant topic. Read Review
Sufiyum Sujathayum (MALAYALAM)
Aditi Rao Hydari , Dev Mohan , Jayasurya Siddique
Director: Naranipuzha Shanavas
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Sufiyum Sujatayum holds the distinction of being the first Malayalam film to release directly on a streaming platform. Sadly, the movie would be best remembered for that.In its concluding act, Sufiyum Sujatayum offers glimpses of a film that finally starts to find its footing. Read Review

Director: Akhil Paul
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
'Forensic' is all about the mysterious disappearance of girls and their subsequent murders. When the police grope in the dark, a forensic expert's intervention solves the puzzle. It's casual treatment that pose hurdles on this thriller's way. Read Review
Love (MALAYALAM)
Shine Tom Chacko , Rajisha Vijayan , Sudhi Koppa Johny Antony
Director: Khalid Rahman
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Writer-director Khalid Rahman asks us to make giant leaps of faith in Love, a bizarre thriller with one twist too many. It is an odd attempt at making a cautionary tale on the effects of anger on love. It is also a bit of a head-scratcher, to say the least. Read Review
Uriyadi (MALAYALAM)
Aju Varghese , Sreenivasan , Siddique Indrans
Director: A J Varghese
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
A burglary takes place in a flat at the police quarters and finding the thieves becomes a matter of pride for the entire police force. Sounds riveting at a glance, this promising plot is marred by a sloppy script and lethargic approach. Read Review
Gauthamante Radham (MALAYALAM)
Neeraj Madhav , Punya Elizabeth , Renji Panicker Basil Joseph
Director: Anand Menon
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
A strong bond between man and vehicle is the focus of 'Gauthamante Radham'. The family develops an emotional attachment to their first car as it becomes a part of them. A seemingly good concept loses its flair once the gear is shifted to familiar events. Read Review
The Kung Fu Master (MALAYALAM)
Neeta Pillai , Jiji Scaria , Sooraj S Kurup Sanoop D
Director: Abrid Shine
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
A revenge action drama, this film has two siblings embarking on a mission to avenge the villain, who created problems in their life. The captivating landscape of Mussoorie and perfect fight scenes give enthralling effects, but the plot appears to be very thin. Read Review
