Katha Parayumbol

March 15, 2008 at 8:49 pm 7 comments

Today I watched the Malayalam movie “Katha Parayumbol”. To say the least I just loved the film. I couldn’t hold my excitement writing about it. I should say the movie really captivated me.

Before I really get to write about the movie, I should say what prompted me to see this movie. What else can it be than our thalaivar going to act in the remake? Having been following Kuselan’s latest developments and that’s what really made me watch KathaParayumpol . Also I have always liked Malayalam films.

When I saw the ad this movie was being screened for the weekend at Prasad’s, I decided I should watch it. When my wife asked why don’t we watch Katha Parayumpol this week, I simply accepted.

A very strong story and simple screen play. The highlight of the movie is the depiction of the various characters. Thats very typical of a malayalam move. This I would say is a core strength of the movie. The simplicity of the scenes and no extravagant settings , songs and dance sequences was another highlight of the movie. The story centers around a barber and his family, his daily life and how much trouble he goes through not even being able to support his children education etc. Things change for the good when people around him figure that he has been a close associate of as superstar actor who is now in their village for a shooting. Everyone is after him to get close to the actor, see shooting, get the actor to their school etc. The barber really does not want to go meet the superstar for the sake of getting a “favor”. After pursuing so much with him when people around him find that he is not making attempts to get them to the superstar, they change completely and change hostile to him. What happens in the end is the rest of the story πŸ™‚ But I should say the last half hour was highly emotional. Too good.

Hats off to every actor who have played their role to perfection.Srinivasan as the hero is simply fantastic. I really don’t have words to praise his acting. It was so powerful. I really want to say that he is the hero in the movie. Momooty is only on a guest role. A true guest role. Every actor has played their role to perfection – be it Sridevi (Meena), Venu, Eppachan, the great poet πŸ™‚ or any body else. ( I dint know the real name of the characters Venu or Eppachan or the poet πŸ™‚

The movie really goes very fast – which is unlike a Malayalam movie. The screenplay and direction is so fantastic that they were able to make this strong, heavy story so light by the comedy and the characters surrounding the barber.

That is on Katha Parayumbol. Now I cant wait to see how Kuselan is going to be. While it will definitely be commercialized and tamilicized :), it will truly be a great movie. I am already keenly following every news on Kuselan. The team is now headed to Hyderabad and shooting expected to start from 16th March. This is sure to be a super duper hit similar to Chandramukhi. Prabhu has also joined the team.

I started on Katha Prayumbol and ended it on Kuselan. I am now going to be keenly following every movement of Kuselan and wait for our next thalaivar film.

    Kuselan is an extra.. ordinary film. People who all gone through the crisis in their life like pasupathy…will really feel the movie. To be very frank people cannot open their lips to say it is a very good movie but..in their inner heart they would have felt it is a best movie. Here also Rajini sir stands in their heart in a different feeling. Hats of to rajini sir and all the costars including the director and his team.

    Not sure if you saw Kuselan :-p

    If you liked Katha Parayumbol, then you should also see Udayananu Thaaram. Mohan Lal and Srinivasan – Srinivasan again writing the script. Absolutely brilliant. Great screeplay, acting, hilarious.
