    Kaanekkaane

    ★★★

    It's safe to say that writers Bobby-Sanjay have recovered some of their lost mojo with Kaanekkaane. The material they've written isn't really genre-bending or eye-opening per se; in fact, it is as generic a plot as you can imagine. Yet, the performances (Suraj Venjaramoodu towering over the rest) and the effective use of flashbacks see it through. While Kaanekkaane can be perceived as a character-piece for Dy.

Even his competent peers only had the greatest things to say about him. The makers thankfully do not relegate it to a…

    #Home

    ★★★½

    The best thing about #Home is that it gives a veteran performer like Indrans an opportunity (in 2021) to act his heart out. #Home is everything you can expect given its title. Thematically, it heavily borrows from Sreenivasan's Kadha Parayumbol in its climactic moments but writer-director Rojin Thomas successfully infuses a huge dose of relatability to the proceedings before we get there. The (slightly excessive) melodrama in the end makes me reduce half a star in a film that gets…
