Watch Bhramaram for Mohanlal
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td height="5">
</td></tr></tbody></table>Paresh C Palicha

It is true that all Keralites have been complaining that Mohanlal seems to be stuck to his superhero image, and is not doing 'commoner' roles that have endeared him to his fans. Director Blessy seems to have paid to heed to the complaints because in his new film Bhramaram, not only that does he exploit the dexterous capabilities of the actor to the hilt but also moulds his character in such a way that it endears us to the actor.
We may get intrigued by the tagline of the film -- Brutally Innocent -- but, by the end of the film, we are convinced that it was aptly used. The only grouse we can have against the film is that it becomes a Road film (as it is promoted) only after the interval.
Nonetheless, it is a thriller all the way that writing a line carelessly about the plot may prove to be a spoiler. The film begins with an uncouth person (Mohanlal) who lands up at the doorstep of stock broker Unni's (Suresh Menon) doorstep in Coimbatore and claims to be his classmate Jose of the seventh standard. Unni cannot recollect any classmate named Jose. But, Jose knows every event of that period, so, Unni trusts him.
The purpose of Jose's visit (who claims to be a jeep driver in the high range area in Kerala [Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=kerala)]) is shrouded in mystery. He refuses any financial help or employment offer; he just wishes to talk about something important in isolation. Jose's eerie behaviour disturbs the composure of Unni's family as well as professional life. And, the revelation of Jose's real identity and purpose of his sudden appearance creates further tremors.
The thriller mode of this film is reminiscent of Bharathan-M T Vasudevan Nair classic Thazhvaram (1990). The only difference is Blessy has kept his work more verbose and we can also find Blessy's speciality i.e. the portraits of happy nuclear families interspersed in between. Another thing worth noticing here is that he has kept the narrative laced with humour, so, the mood swings in the characters jolts the viewers too.
Mohanlal's character has a chameleon like quality -- the way it changes colours within moments without even the shot being cut is seen to be believed. His performance makes Bhramaram worth watching even if you have issues with the premise.
Suresh Menon, whom we have seen doing mimicry on Hindi television is a revelation. His role is outright serious bordering on negative.
VG Muralikrishnan, who had scripted and acted as the villain in Lal Jose directed Rasikan a few years back makes a comeback in this movie as an actor. But, his role is not as well etched out as other two leads. The two female leads Lakshmi Gopalaswami and Bhoomika Chawla [Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=bhoomika%20chawla)] can be said to be having only special appearances.
Bhramaram brings Blessy back into form after the debacle of Calcutta News.

The purpose of Jose's visit (who claims to be a jeep driver in the high range area in Kerala [Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=kerala)]) is shrouded in mystery. He refuses any financial help or employment offer; he just wishes to talk about something important in isolation. Jose's eerie behaviour disturbs the composure of Unni's family as well as professional life. And, the revelation of Jose's real identity and purpose of his sudden appearance creates further tremors.
The thriller mode of this film is reminiscent of Bharathan-M T Vasudevan Nair classic Thazhvaram (1990). The only difference is Blessy has kept his work more verbose and we can also find Blessy's speciality i.e. the portraits of happy nuclear families interspersed in between. Another thing worth noticing here is that he has kept the narrative laced with humour, so, the mood swings in the characters jolts the viewers too.
Mohanlal's character has a chameleon like quality -- the way it changes colours within moments without even the shot being cut is seen to be believed. His performance makes Bhramaram worth watching even if you have issues with the premise.
Suresh Menon, whom we have seen doing mimicry on Hindi television is a revelation. His role is outright serious bordering on negative.
VG Muralikrishnan, who had scripted and acted as the villain in Lal Jose directed Rasikan a few years back makes a comeback in this movie as an actor. But, his role is not as well etched out as other two leads. The two female leads Lakshmi Gopalaswami and Bhoomika Chawla [Images (http://search.rediff.com/imgsrch/default.php?MT=bhoomika%20chawla)] can be said to be having only special appearances.
Bhramaram brings Blessy back into form after the debacle of Calcutta News.

Bhramaram Review-Now Running...

By VN Fri, 26 Jun 2009
As the monsoon showers down in torrents, Blessey concerns himself with the spirit of redemption that hovers around a bitter truth. Bhramaram is more of a sticky assemblage of hysterical high-points than a touching, emotional indictment on the profound sense of loss.

Unni (Suresh Menon), a stock broker by profession is surprised when a high school mate Sivankutty (Mohanlal) lands on him like an avalanche, one fine day. A good twenty five years having passed, Unni is barely able to recognize him, and is bewildered by his intentions. When Sivan coerces him to come visit his family, Unni realizes that a deliberately forgotten past is fast catching up on him.

It takes quite a bit of sputtering before the engine gathers enough verve to move forward. The initial obscurity that lingers over Sivankutty does tickle our curio nerve once in a while, but very soon gets tiresome. Particularly after the revelation that finally puts up a period firmly in place of the long series of question marks.

Touted as a road movie, the film suffers tremendous ruin once it hits the road. Unlike every appealing film in the genre, Bhramaram has no solid plot development to cash in on as its odd characters make a journey to their destination. Most of the tale has already been told and the rest of it could be deduced even before the ride starts.

It's here that Blessey decides to fuel up a bit, and vainly tries to bring in an extra little effect by cooking up fights on a roadside dhaba or by flashing a quick placard on the dismal plight of pubic lavatories. These frantic attempts come a full circle with the lead man taking a leak by the roadside, and an avid leaker-by taking a look and whimsically commenting that appearances could be illusory.

The climactic breakdown that has almost become routine in Blessey's films is exaggeratedly preserved in Bhramaram. Essentially the central character in Blessey's films deals with death and intense deprivation, and it's the same here as well, with every weep and wail faithfully retained. Somehow though, the melodramatic machinations appear all the more contrived with every new film. In plain words, it simply seems to be getting worse.

Mohanlal's acute performance as the man who has been repeatedly wronged is as best as it possibly could get. At times restrained and at times overwhelmingly disorderly, the man who has taken a severe battering from life, is safe in the actor's hands. An admirable feat indeed, since Lal continually jumps over the trap holes in the script and tries to make do with what he's truly capable of.

However, the true champion of the hour would be Ajayan Vincent who has drawn up some of the best rustic and urban visuals, through his exemplary cinematography. His camera that seems to have grown feet of its own occupies all sorts of vantage positions, whether it be hovering around a speeding cab, or busily crouching to an unobtrusive corner of the room as the door opens from outside. Much thought-out and elaborately planned, there are any number of stunning instances in the film that are watch worthy only on account of the technique that has captured it on film.

The incessant buzzing of the bumble bee that acts as an aural metaphor to all emotions that exemplify vengeance goes on and on. As it peaks for one last time in the closing shot, I wonder if the suggestion is that the most primeval of man's instincts doesn't ever wither off. After a brief interlude, it would most likely surface again, and articulate itself through more bouts of madness.
