      Default "Neerali" & "Ant Man & The Wasp" ~Opinions

      NEERALI


      Venue
      ~Jos Theater, Thrissur
      Showtime ~ 9:00 PM
      Status ~Balcony 100% (No Idea About First Class)

      When a young director decided to make his Hollywood debut with an on survival drama featuring a car & truck, he shown all signs of becoming a brilliant director. Yeah! I am talking about Steven Spielberg. Many might categorize this movie as an on road thriller but I will prefer to call it a survival drama. Here the thrilling element was brought through its narration,acting and editing. Similarly 127 Hours by Danny Boyle gives us an emotional experience more than being a thriller. Even Hindi Movie "Trapped" has been a good attempt.

      But the issue with Ajoy Varma's "Neerali" is that the movie never brought the audience into the movie. Neither they were connected with the characters nor found anything "edge of the seat" moment in the movie. Since audience couldn't connect with the audience and the pain undergone by the lead character, Sunny Joseph (Mohanlal), we can simply forget the emotional quotient. As far as the attempt to thrill is concerned, most attempts fizzled off. So the survival drama started to lose its steam within matter of minutes and only the "twist"can save this movie (just like saving some recent craps). Unfortunately, the makers didn't have one and opted one of the normal 2 options!!! The songs were bad and totally avoidable!!!

      The idea was novel for Malayalam Cinema and looked interesting in paper. Debutante writer Saju Thomas had the stuff in the writing despite the listless subplots (Featuring Dileesh and Co). But Ajoy Varma wasn't simply good enough to engage the audience at all. This movie shows that how technically brilliant your movie is, there is an X factor to keep the audience engaged. The graphics were really good featuring the scenes of the crash. The frames by Santhosh Thundiyal helped to attain the mood. The film doesn't defy logic as far as I know and the character done every believable attempts to survive and finally make the grand escape. The BGM supported at point and at times reminded me of the Bahubali song!!! One interesting scene was the conversation between husband and "about to deliver" wife where the wife shares her fear of death as well as pain undergoing without realizing that the husband is going through similar situation. But again it didn't connect with majority audience!!

      Mohanlal is the lifeline of this movie and none sane will deny that fact. His first movie after the new avatar was affected by the weird wig!!! Suraaj looked below average while doing those emotional scenes (which was surprising). Rest of the cast failed to make any impact and pretty surprised why Nadiya did this movie!!!!

      Overall a novel attempt failed to make any sort of impact with the audience and thus the box office!!!

      ANT MAN & THE WASP

      Venue ~INOX Shobha, Thrissur (Screen 2)
      Showtime ~10:30 AM
      Status ~70%

      Back to Marvel!! After the shocking climax of the Infinity War, many including me were looking forward to the sequel of the 2015 movie to give some answers to the next Avengers movie. But just to keep those expectations low, we just have a mid credit scene to connect that which is really important!!!

      Otherwise the movie is about Scott Lang aka Ant Man's(Paul Rudd) house arrest period (prior to Infinity War) and how things shape up when Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) & Hope (Evangeline Lilly) decides to bring back Pym's wife Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) back to earth.

      The storyline is as simple as that and the movie is just a time pass movie with quantum stuff which we cannot relate to (as if we care). Peyton Reed as usual handled most sequences in a comical manner including the action sequences. But honestly, despite it being entertaining, the movie couldn't go to the next level as far as story telling is concerned. Ant Man was a breath of fresh air in midst of out n out world saving action battles. But with GOG,Ragnarok, this seems to be a Deja Vu treatment. Also the simplicity of the storyline was just not good enough to be the movie after Infinity War. Maybe they should have released Captain Marvel after Infinity War and gave this movie a later release.

      The performances from the cast were good as usual with new entries in form of Lawrence Fishburne, Hannah John & Michelle Pfeiffer, who all seems to have a major role in the sequel. I am sure most Marvel Fans will not miss this movie and Infinity Fans should look out for the mid credit moment!! For others, just a time pass popcorn entertainer with ample scope for laughs, comical action etc.
