I'm too scared to watch the trailer in its entirety, though I've been forced to watch bits and pieces of it in my trawling of Malayalam channels. I saw the pooja for this two years ago because Arya was supposed to play one of the supporting characters.

It looked pretty bad even with the potential of having Arya in a Malayalam film, so I can't think its appeal has increased very much since then. Mohanlal has lost his touch, man. People don't get excited to go see a Mohanlal film like they used to back in the day.

As an aside, Katherine, have you Salt N Pepper or City of God? I get the feeling that your tastes run towards the more old-fashioned Malayalam films, but since you liked Traffic, I think you might like those two. I liked Indian Rupee as well, but I'm sure that's on your radar already.



You know, I saw Rosshan Andrrews and Bobby-Sanjay and Mohanlal, and thought, surely this can't be as bad as the trailer looks. Surely.

Sigh. Count me amongst those who is less and less enamoured of Mohanlal's films lately.

City of God is here in my stack of DVDs, but I have seen Salt N Pepper, and loved it -- I just need a rewatch to think about what to write about it here on the blog. And yes, I'm anxiously awaiting the DVD release of Indian Rupee, I'm sure Ranjith won't let me down...


Mohanlal is the best there ever was, there ever is, there ever will be.
