THIS IS AWESOME. I know LITERALLY nothing about Malayalam film. TEACH ME


It is my firm opinion based on the admittedly limited number of films I've watched that Malayalam films are the unsung gem of Indian cinema.

However, I've got a lot to learn myself, you know.

Was that a YMMMV (Your Malayalam Mileage May Vary) disclaimer? ;-)


Hi there! Was visiting your blog today and was so excited to see someone writing about Malayalam films! There just aren't enough of them in the blogosphere. I plan to come back and check out your future Mallu posts! Great work. :)


Thanks, MinaiMinai -- yes, I'd noticed how few people write about Malayalam films, it's so sad, because there's so much I'd love to learn, and from what I've seen, so many good films to be shared!


I can't believe I haven't come across your blog until now. I've started taking an interest in Malayalam cinema after some time so it's always interesting to get the outsider perspective on them. That's true for other Indian languages too, but it's especially easy for me to take Malayalam cinema and what's depicted for granted. Thanks so much for blogging. Now, I need to go find that Women in Malayalam Cinema book that you mentioned in another post.



Welcome and thanks for reading -- I actually watch more films than I get around to writing about, but I'm hoping that will change in the near future (although these days, I write more about Malayalam films than Hindi ones, I think :-) )

I know what you mean, though -- I tend to take Canadian films for granted until I'm kind of pushed to think about them.
