Bulleting 'Elsamma'

  • Mathrubhumi fits itself in almost all the frames – as newspaper, or calendar or even as a pillow cover
  • Wondering what attracts Lal Jose to a human posterior! Since ‘Meesamadhavan’ he has this obsessive compulsion for bums; he has carried it to this movie as well – the mentioning of human geographic rear in multiple scenes.
  • The scene on ‘Suresh’ is a flawed attempt of comedy and was an obvious one. Evokes no laughter. Felt like added later in the movie, as an afterthought.
  • Jagathy Sreekumar fails to amuse audience, however Suraj Venjaramood is here to stay in the comedy track.
  • ‘Elsamma the Saviour’ or ‘St. Elsamma’ could have been a better title, cos all what she does is for the overall wellbeing of the society. Elsamma is highly over rated.
  • No songs are worthy for a second listening.
  • Camera, cast and costumes are excellent.
  • Ann does a good job and Kunchakko is amazing. Indrajith plays his role with ease. Not to mention KPAC Lalitha and Nedumudi Venu.
  • Vijayaraghavan can be compared with ‘Ananthan Nambiar’ in Nadodikattu. A comical villain.
  • Overall had a feeling of reading Balarama, which as such is good, but childish attempt by Lal Jose.

Just a mention about the theatre I watched the moview from. It was Screen 3 of Innovative Multiplex in Bangalore. This was the first time I watch in a multiplex (Ticket Cost Rs 150 for Silver class!). Believe me Kairali/Sree in Trivandrum does much better a job. The sound went off twice during the movie. The screen was smaller than the normal theatre. No refreshments. The show was at 7.30 pm and security guard wouldn't let us in until 7.45 pm. Duh!

Pray these multiplexes doesn't get popular in Kerala.
