Friday - 11.11.11



While some movies awe us for being magnanimous... Some comes as a surprise for being simple and relatable...

Friday is one such movie...

The characters are real... The plot is simple... Narrative is gripping... Screenplay is crisp...

The story is about what happens in the life of a set of people in a day... Their path crisscrosses each others’... It is also about how the events in that day affect their life - Forever!

I chose to watch the movie only because of the brand - Fahad Fazil. Let me tell you... He did not disappoint me... He comes across as a konkani... His accent and body language is commendable... His eyes are expressive and we connect with him instantly.

All other actors have done their part impeccably. Nedumudi venu shines...

Ann looks lovely as a perfect girl next door... Transition of Manu from a love-sick-yet-another-boy to a responsible man is appreciable...

I really wish that the climax was simple too... The element of drama could have been avoided. It is not essential that something should happen... It could have been concluded as yet another Friday... But, movies are supposed to be packed with high dose of drama, isn't?

In short, I loved the movie. Its simplicity awed me. Fahad Fazil proves himself again further proving that his movies would be both different and spellbinding!

A movie without interval... More like a short film... I have to appreciate the director and the producer for couraging venturing into it... A risk taken, well rewarded...

So... Go for the movie... Enjoy it... Envision the metamorphosis that Malayalam film industry is going through... The hungry movie buff within you will not feel unhappy...!!!!
