Wednesday Malayalam: Aravindante Athidhikal, The Power of the Mother

A nice pleasant not terribly challenging movie. Which somehow is what I always expect from Vineeth Sreenivisan starring movies. And a very nice movie to think about and maybe watch as we all worry about Sreenivisan in the hospital.

Malavaadi Arts Club: A Malayalam Take on the Boy Band

My first Malayalam movie from my huge online shopping haul!  It was so-so.  I think I remember why it was recommended to me, because it was Nivin’s first movie, and the first movie Vineeth directed.  It was kind of cool to see how both of them started out, and the movie was also sort of interesting in its own right to look at how a plot I have seen in Hindi and Tamil films was done in Malayalam.  But I wouldn’t say it is exactly a “Great Film.”

I was able to find it on youtube without subtitles, and separately find a subtitle file I could drop in.
