Baba Kalyani: Distrubing trend

Yesterday we went to watch a Malayalam movie called Baba Kalyani. The movie was of mediocre quality; the plot was ordinary, and the cast was largely Mohanlal with a huge list of guest artistes. But that is not what this post is about.

Shaji’s camera work for the movie was very bad. The camera was often positioned at odd angles, and used lots of tricks which looked good on Matrix, but made Baba Kalyani look like a video game rather than a feature film. Worse, it hurts the eye of the viewer – I am paying good money to be entertained, not to leave the movie hall with a headache (I am not exaggerating; I did have a headache yesterday and had to use an ice pack when I got back). If Shaji Kailas, the director, thinks that such tricks makes him ‘cool’, here is at-least one viewer that think otherwise. Shaji Kailas had tried similar stunts to a lesser extent in his last hit – Chinathamani Kolacase – also.

Mr. Shaji Kailas, please refrain from hurting the eyes of your viewers .. please! You can do a lot better than that.

Rant over! 🙂

    First of all ..avoid mallu action movies, good old films like naadodikkatu and pattanapravesham are so fun to watch.. I bet you agree on this
