    DEAR MA’AM , can you watch movie 🍿 “CHITHRAM & KILUKKAM” and come up with a review please


    Just imagine a mediocre budgeted Malayalam movie in a single small location with a first class storyline and Hollywood level acting with best ever climax! Masterpiece 🔥 No unnecessary songs, overacting n all. Deserves oscar nomination😎


    Anupama didn’t review she Almost tells you the story. You can never watch her review before actually watching the movie as it will 100% spoil the experience


    I hope everyone sees wat he has done in past malayalam movies,then they will tell he is a masterpiece in indian movie

      @siva selva I think Kerala is the state where more CCTV installed. even most of the house is equipped with CCTV. what's the whole point you trying to prove. Still anyone cant prove that Mohanlal changed the skeleton. you can only prove that he travelled. so whats the point.

    • siva selva
      siva selva

      @Prabil m Honestly I don't see a reply to my comment. see my comments in Tamil. Even Mohanla has CCTV camera to see the theatre. Then police shouldlook for roadside CCTV-s-that would proove the facts--and Mohsnlaal is a suspected criminal! The beauty is the director shows Kerala police a supersmar!

    • siva selva
      siva selva

      @Prabil m பரிசோதனைக்கூடத்தில் CCTV இல்லையென்றால் பரவாயில்லை. மோகன்லால் கிராமத்தில் இருந்து திருவனந்தபுறம் பரிசோதனைக்கூடம் வரை ஆயிரக்கணக்கில் CCTV-க்கள் இருக்குமே! அந்த சிடிவ்-க்கள் footage-எடுத்து பார்த்தல் கண்டுபிடித்து விடலாமே! ஒரு வேளை கேரளாவில் அப்படி செல்லும் வழியில் CCTV-க்கள் கிடையாதா? கேரளா அவ்வளவு பின்தங்கியா இருக்கு! ஆனால், தமிழ்நாட்டில் CCTV இல்லாத கிராமங்களே இல்லை என்று சொல்லலாம்.

      Hey man Director told in interview that there is no CCTV there. and y do go for more logic in a film. Then there will not be any film out there. What's the logic behind after vijay beating up badly and getting up to beat villains by hearing a song in MASTER movie. I belive if you looking for logic there will not be any vijay or rajini movies out there. Who else will fly in air while fighting

    Drishyam 2 is a terrific sequel that satisfies the audience with its suspenseful gripping second half, but it misses the mark with the emotion and characterization in the first half. Mohanlal's performance is stunning. www.topbestmovie.com/post/drishyam-sunrise-review

    Great movie... Mind blowing screenplay and gripping performance... Mohanlal' s acting is always a benchmark for other actors to learn and common man to wonder....With all due respect to the great artists our motherland has created, In my limited knowledge I have never seen a versatile and born actor like him atleast in the Indian film industry... Any role is just a cake walk for him.. yet to see any role which is challenging for him...

    The complete actor Mohanlal has given So many class movies to Malayalam film industry like Drishyam...so many have been remaked in other languages...but his realistic acting can't be replaced by any other actor in our country... which gives life to the movies.... So get some good collection of the complete actor Mohanlal.... Also there are some good recent Malayalam movies which is as good as Drishyam but since this came in Amazon.. people came to know... You guys check this movies: Ancham pathira Forensic

    How blessed we are to live in a country with diverse languages, different cultures, different religions, different topography and most importantly different thought processes. Instead of Govt trying to impose one's language on others, we should embrace these differences and understand each other's culture. What better way to learn and know other culture than through films of that place. So instead of waiting for these movies to be remade in your language, please do watch in their original context. Let's make this country 'Unity in Diversity' again.

Which happened to many Malayalam movies remade from past 30 years in all three south indian languages and hindi But credit not given to Malayalam movies and it's actors so many example one biggest Example is manichitrathazhu 1993 Remade in Kannada apthamitra Tamil and Telugu Chandramukhi Hindi bhool bhoolaiya
