Monday Malayalam: Kammara Sambhavan (SPOILERS) History is Disgusting

Okay, spoiler time!  I am doing a separate SPOILER review not so much to avoid spoilers (it’s not exactly that kind of movie, the plot is so intricate you can’t spoil it entirely), as because the film is so complex, I needed a moment to deal with just the general themes and structure and ideas (the No SPOILERS post) before I could get into the details of what technically happens.

Vikramadithyan: Is Unni Mukundan Just Allergic to Shirts?

Finally, a happy romance!  Well, okay, there were still some kind of dark statements about law and assumptions and the pettiness of those in power.  But also, a romance!  With two leads who I like, Dulquer and Namitha Pramod!
