The Bobby-Sanjay scripting duo nails it again. An edge of the seat-dynamic thriller like never before. A first in Malayalam maybe. An amazing cast performing in control, riveting background score, invisible cuts, we have a winner! Rajesh Pillai delivers it slick. Dont feel like criticizing anything about it. Must-watch.
Beautiful. Even more beautiful to know its a true story. There is no end to the things that can influence your life in ways you never knew. Jamie Foxx in his best of roles other than Ray maybe. Felt like a trance. Lots of fun-feel-good moments.

My favorite director's latest, and my least favorite (comparing to his previous works). Watched it from the front most row and was lost on the Javier on board. One hell of a performance. Realistic, super-natural, emotional, its a mix. Inarritu is done perfecting his multiple narratives, and now he has gone experimenting it emotionally.
Are we working on an exclusive street slang for Malayalam like the 'Tapori' in Hindi? Over-use of Cochin slang all over. Mammootty excels in both the avatars. Rich visuals, as expected from the photographer-turned-director. Touching climax gimmicks. Good watch.
Movie on the Time magazine's Person of the Year. Movie on the guy behind the once-in-a-generation-holy-shit idea! Movie on friendship, talent, betrayal, lawsuits and lots of fictitious drama surrounding Mark Zuckerberg. Rocking background music. A whole sequence in the tilt-shift pattern, treat for the eye. Reminded of Fight Club. Im addicted.
Sync-sound killed some of the would-have-been brilliant comic scenes. As usual Kamal Haassan is the master of wordplay. Some sequences reminded of Kamal's own Alavandan, Anbe Sivam and Panchatanthiram. Lacks the usual 'woah' factor. Period.
