Oru Mexican Aparatha (2017) | Tovino Thomas, Neeraj Madhav

Neeraj Madhav comes out as a fine actor. After all the comedy roles he has done, this film sets him apart, and people will begin to see him in a different image. 

There is a certain way in which Malayalam films have been presenting campus politics to us through these years. Think of any film, the adrenaline rush when you see the actors fighting, running around on screen, the sentiments, think of lal salaam, left right left, oru Indian pranaya kadha, even the kalippu parts of premam …there is nothing of that sort here. I’m not anguishing on its absense! But ..

Set in Maharajas College in Ernakulam, the story of the film is set amidst the campus elections, the prep for the MG university youth festival, campus politics, ousting .. A campus film in the backdrop of their elections, (thallu, veetikuthu, ellam). 

There are moments in the film, but other than that I found the film slow, and almost a mockery. Mexico, Cuba … !! 😴😴 

Received this is as a forwarded message on WhatsApp. I’d say pretty decent. Guess who.
