Happiness

It's been a long time since I watched a movie where we are pulled into the setup without us knowing. Happiness is one such movie which I watched recently. Somehow I have always found movies which has multiple threads running interesting. Movies such as Love Actually, He is just not that into you, Requiem for a Dream, Valentines Day fall into that category.


Happiness is one such movie where it introduces us to various interesting characters whom the typical society will ideally categorize as losers or fake. But let me warn you that this is one movie which touches upon some highly taboo subjects such as Pedophilia and Incest. There are quite a few scenes which will make you cringe in your seat even when you are watching it alone. But still it does not depress you many other movies does and there is always an dark humor undercurrent running.

If you are looking for not the usual cinema then this is for you.

Drishyam

After a very long time got the chance to watch a Malayalam movie.Have been hearing about this movie a lot in the past few months and somehow I was able to guess the plot of the movie. I knew it will be about how a nice family gets shattered due to a young guy. But I was wondering how the movie will proceed and finally got the answer after watching the movie.

As synonymous with Malayalam movies the movie starts off at a leisurely pace with wonderful greenery. Mohanlal fits the character to T. It was difficult to watch Meena as she is not the same old Meena we are used to.

Overall I felt certain elements post interval were a bit unrealistic but good. The guy who acts as the police gets on our nervous indicating he has done his job well. A refreshing change from routine movies.

Memories

ஞாபகங்கள் சந்தோஷமானதோ துக்கமானதோ கண்களில் கண்ணீர் நிச்சயம்.

Memories, good or bad always brings tears.
