Review of film “colors”
The film ‘Colors’ is the first release of Dileep in 2009. The movie with a pedestrian, predictable story and unimaginative sequences fails to spread any bright colors in the minds of the viewers.
Story in brief
The movie set in a military camp at Coonnor near Ooty. The story revolves around a military doctor Lt. Colonel Dr. Rajalakshmi, her two daughters Pooja and Pinky and her father-in-law, Pushkaran Pillai. Pooja, a typical coy girl and her mother’s pet, is a school teacher. While her younger daughter Pinky is a tomboyish, bubbly girl who roams around playing pranks on the villagers and shooting her popular television programme ‘Colours’, with her constant companion and cameraman Rahul, who is already in love with her. Adventurous and bold Pinky shares a very special relation with Pooja and her grandpa.
Rajalakshmi detects a financial fraud in her military hospital in the purchase of costly medicines. She is intent on bringing the culprits before the law and consequently earns some enemies. At this juncture, Navy officer Lt. Commander Sanjaynath (Dileep) arrives, locking horns with Pinky from their first meeting. Every one feels he is the right person to control Pinky’s naughtiness, which gradually leads them into falling in love. Then there are the plans of elders to marry off Pooja to Sanjay, even when he is in love with Pinky. And the worst of the subplots is that involving the character played by Harishree Ashokan and his father in-law – a lunatic played by Cochin Haneefa, which falls well below buffoonery.
About the characters
The character of Lt. Colonel Dr. Rajalakshmi is acted by Sharanya and her two daughters Pooja as Bhama and Pinky as Roma and her father-in-law, Pushkaran Pillai as Innocent. Vinu Mohan is playing the role of Rahul, cameraman. Dileep as the naval officer Sanjaynath.
Though promoted as a Dileep flick, the entire show essentially belongs to Roma, as the lead actor appears on the scene only a few seconds before the interval, i.e., exactly an hour after the film start’s. His entry just before the interval as Sanjaynath seems rather uncomfortable with the undemanding. Roma is good at some places, but terribly bad at others. . Dileep makes a ride through his macho avatar-though not much convincingly. Vinu Mohan and Bhama under play their characters as per demands while Sharanya and Innocent are aptly cast. Harihsree Ashokan and Cochin Haneefa are terribly unbearable, left to run all around to create some half baked chuckles.
About direction and other aspects….
While the technical sides of the film are agreeable, the pointless script and unproductive direction spoil the movie. The songs ‘Kanmaniye’ and ‘Pookkalam by Suresh peter are the only relief to the spectators in the film. Raj Babu has at hand quite a messy palette with which he cooks up a repulsive piece of art in awful colors on an intolerably muddled canvas.
FILM REVIEW OF “KADHA, SAMVIDHANAM: KUNCHAKO”
The sreenivasan factor really disappoints this time. Nothing much to talk about the boring movie. Absolutely wayward direction and a weak script. Presence of sreenivasan as the central character fails to save the movie. From the second day, the film is running in front of empty chairs.
About the film
The film revolves around a self-made millionaire Kunchacko (Sreenivasan), who owns a private bank, medical college, multiplex supermarket and many other private institutions. Born in a poor family, this 50-year-old bachelor became a business magnate only through cruelty and shrewdness. What he earned however, was always for his siblings. He has a large family of brothers, sisters and brother-in-laws (Ganesh, Prem Kumar, Sudhish, Sona Nair and Lakshmi Priya), who are all well-settled in life, all because of his generosity. Kunchacko never found the time to live for himself.
His brothers and sisters tried to make him a sophisticated man, but their attempts failed. Finally by the advice of the parish priest and continuous pressure from his family he decided to marry Anne Mary a soft ware engineer by profession. And their marriage was on the agreement that kunchko will written off her loan which she had taken from his bank. On the night of their marriage, the hero has a change of heart, which is quite unconvincing for the audience to digest!
About the performance
Sreenivasan as Kunchacko is his very usual self, donning the role with all his routine mannerisms. After the mega hit films udayananu tharam and kadha parayumbol, once again Meena came as the heroine of sreenivasan. Meena as usual looking pretty in the film. The performances of the other cast members are just average. However, it is a pleasant surprise to see forgotten actors Prem Kumar and Sudhish in full-length roles as Kunchacko’s siblings.
About the direction
This film was directed by Haridas Keshavan (known as director Haridas) .This is a film that has been made in the most conventional manner and has nothing new to offer. The director has just rambled with his own story, which begins somewhere and goes elsewhere, conveying nothing in the process. Kadha, Samvidhanam: Kunchacko altogether fails to impress.
