After so much wait, one of the most anticipated films of this year has been graced the screens here today. It is Kayamkulam Kochunni directed by Rosshan Andrrews with Nivin Pauly in the lead. Complete Actor Mohanlal is making a special appearance in this movie and that too made it one of the most hyped projects in recent times. Bobby- Sanjay team had scripted this film and it has been produced by Gokulam Gopalan under the banner of Sree Gokulam Movies. Priya Anand plays the female lead character in this movie and Sunny Wayne too plays an important character in it. The trailer of this flick had got great responses from all over.
As you all know, this movie is all about the life of the legendary thief Kayamkulam Kochunni, who lived in the 19th century. The film shows us his life and how he becomes that thief we know and what really happens in his life after that. It has historical references and the makers had told many unknown facts about Kochunni through this movie as well.
We have to say that Kayamkulam Kochunni has been made as one of the best ever movie in Mollywood. It has been brilliant, both technically and aesthetically. Rosshan Andrrews had made this movie a visual spectacle as it will give goosebumps to the audience. From the very first frame to the last, it will entertain you, excite you and will make you sit at the edge of your seat. The action sequences were just terrific and the VFX portions really looked good. Screenplay by Bobby- Sanjay team is the backbone of this film and it told everything in detail. The dialogues were sharp as well. Each and every character were given great space and the characterization was nothing but amazing.
The performance from Nivin Pauly has been fantastic and we can say that he has been given his flesh and blood to this character and lived on screen as Kayamkulam Kochunni. Complete Actor Mohanlal once again showed us why he has been called as the greatest actor India has ever seen. With his extended cameo, he elevated the whole movie to another level. His performance as Ithikkara Pakki has been just stunning, to say the least. Sunny Wayne as Keshavan and Babu Antony as Thangal deserve special mention. Babu Antony’s Thangal character is nothing less than a remarkable performance. Others like Priya Anand, Priyanka Thimmesh, Manikandan, Thesni Khan, Shine Tom Chacko, Sudev Nair, Ashwini, Jude etc too did a fine job.
The DOP of this flick was done by Binod Pradhan, Nirav Sha, and Sudheer Palsane and they had given some sterling visuals. The artwork along with their visuals will make the audience reach the 19th century. Music by Gopi Sundar has been fabulous as well. The songs were great and the background scoring has been heavy. Sreekar Prasad edited the flick and his fine cuts had given this movie great pace.
In total, Kayamkulam Kochunni has been a fabulous visual treat which will excite you. Never miss this visual treat from Rosshan Andrrews and team, as this movie can be called as one of the best ever movie made in South Indian Cinema.
