Director: Vineeth Sreenivasan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Hridayam is further evidence that there is more to Vineeth Sreenivasan than just a one-trick pony. The directorial voice shines through Hridayam, a musical about loving and learning to let the past go. Read Review
Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey (MALAYALAM)
Basil Joseph , Darshana Rajendran , Aju Varghese Azees Nedumangad
Director: Vipin Das
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
You cannot look away from what the makers say in Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey. It is admirable how they narrate this toxic marriage story. It is not often that you burst out laughing while watching a film like this. Read Review
Nna Than Kesu Kodu (MALAYALAM)
Kunchacko Boban , Gayathrie Shankar , Unnimaya Prasad Basil Joseph
Director: Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Like most satires, Nna Thaan Case Kodu ridicules the machinery of government. The movie takes a few cinematic liberties but packs a punch in terms of the satirical elements. It also has some terrific performances. Read Review
Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam (MALAYALAM)
Mammootty , Ramya Pandian , Ashokan Kainakary Thankaraj
Director: Lijo Jose Pellissery
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Lijo Jose Pellissery's Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam is a film so brilliant and bizarre that it is best enjoyed if you submit to it. In this film about dual identities, the characters and even the audience make a detour to a world that is mysterious. Read Review
Thallumaala (MALAYALAM)
Tovino Thomas , Kalyani Priyadarshan , Shine Tom Chacko Chemban Vinod Jose
Director: Khalid Rahman
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Some fight to avenge somebody, and others fight for money. The characters in Khalid Rahman's Thallumaala fight mainly to let out their feelings. It is a bizarre, experimental movie that works mostly for the treatment. Read Review
Salute (MALAYALAM)
Dulquer Salman , Diana Penty , Manoj K. Jayan Alencier Ley Lopez
Director: Rosshan Andrrews
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Salute is not a standard whodunit as there is more emphasis on truth and justice than the identity of the killer. The killer may be any person, but the focus here is on the moral predicament of the cop. Read Review
Bro Daddy (MALAYALAM)
Mohanlal , Prithviraj Sukumaran , Meena Kalyani Priyadarshan
Director: Prithviraj Sukumaran
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Bro Daddy on Disney+ Hotstar is not the same showreel for director Prithviraj Sukumaran as his previous movie - Lucifer. It is a situational comedy with some laughs for the audience. While the movie has numerous cliches, Prithviraj's direction keeps it engaging. Read Review
Kooman (MALAYALAM)
Asif Ali , Hannah Reji Koshy , Renji Panicker Baburaj
Director: Jeethu Joseph
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Kooman makes a strong case for Jeethu Joseph's craft as a filmmaker. Good, solid acting, a terrific plot, and Jeethu Joseph's signature twists all add up to a compelling thriller. Read Review
Appan (MALAYALAM)
Sunny Wayne , Alencier Ley Lopez , Ananya Grace Antony
Director: Maju
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Appan is a compelling exploration of toxic masculinity. It is not an easy film to watch, though. The film is often a bit solemn and somber, but it is engaging throughout thanks to the performances. Read Review
Rorschach (MALAYALAM)
Mammootty , Sharafudheen , Jagadish Grace Antony
Director: Nissam Basheer
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Rorschach is an unusual Malayalam thriller. This oddity applies to everything from the title to the visual grammar of the film. Some may call it genre-bending for its subversive twists and turns. Read Review
Saudi Vellakka (MALAYALAM)
Lukman , Devi Varma , Binu Pappu Gokulan
Director: Tharun Moorthy
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
There is no major drama in Saudi Vellakka, a moving film about the judicial system that takes its sweet time to arrive at a conclusion over a lawsuit. Director Tharun Moorthy shows how this long-drawn-out procedure and the passage of time affect the parties concerned. Read Review
Jo & Jo (MALAYALAM)
Mathew Thomas , Nikhila Vimal , Naslen Johny Antony
Director: Arun D Jose
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Jo and Jo has a great sense of how teenagers talk. It is a simple, small film about petty fights between a brother and sister that escalate into a bigger problem. It does not have much conflict but has relatable and engaging content. Read Review
Jana Gana Mana (MALAYALAM)
Prithviraj Sukumaran , Suraj Venjaramoodu , Mamta Mohandas Siddique
Director: Dijo Jose Antony
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
The movie is more of a confrontation between misinformation, half-truth and truth. It also works as a deep dive into our collective consciousness. Read Review
Pada (MALAYALAM)
Kunchacko Boban , Vinayakan , Joju George Dileesh Pothan
Director: Kamal K. M
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Writer-Director Kamal KM's Pada works as a potent call to action on the marginalization of tribals in Kerala. Pada may be a procedural, but it sometimes has the look and feel of a thriller like Nayattu. It is a provocative and entertaining film. Read Review
Vichithram (MALAYALAM)
Shine Tom Chacko , Balu Varghese , Lal Kani Kusruthi
Director: Achu Vijayan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Vichithram has themes with hidden implications, like caged rabbits and a butterfly in a glass. Writers Vineeth Jose and Nikhil Raveendran cleverly work these themes into the script, while the background music and visual film-making add to the eerie atmospherics of the film. Read Review
Mukundan Unni Associates (MALAYALAM)
Vineeth Sreenivasan , Suraj Venjaramoodu , Tanvi Ram Sudhi Koppa
Director: Abhinav Sundar Nayak
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
This film is a dark comedy and the celebration of a psychopath. Vineeth Sreenivasan uses his voice to express his thoughts with a scary sense of callousness. His spiteful little jokes about humanity are equal parts funny and scary. Read Review
Pathonpathaam Noottandu (MALAYALAM)
Siju Wilson , Kayadu Lohar , Chemban Vinod Jose Anoop Menon
Director: Vinayan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Pathonpatham Noottandu is engaging and entertaining, which tells you a lot about its quality, especially when period dramas fall short. Starring Siju Wilson in a breakthrough role, the movie tells the story of the oppressed class in ancient Travancore. Read Review
Udal (MALAYALAM)
Dhyan Sreenivasan , Durga Krishna , Indrans
Director: Ratheesh Reghunandan
