      It's pretty clear. The medias are overrating this movie. Trust me...in 3 weeks, people will call this thrash.

      Prior to Kurup, there were 2 films from Malayalam based on the life of Sukumara Kurup. First was NH 47 which was loud, commercial mainstream cinema which has all the trappings of 80s. The second one was Pinneyum, which IMO is a well made movie but may be under-appreciated due to high standards possessed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan. Pinneyum focuses on a possibility of how a person's mind can change when he gets an opportunity to attain quick money and later how he loses all thats important to him. In both these movies, the commonality is that Kurup is portrayed as a negative character and never there was moment of glorification. While Dileep in Pinneyum provided an image of a man next door, T G Ravi in NH47 was an absolute villain.

      With "Kurup", we can see how commercial cinema of Malayalam has changed and how crime and criminal activities are glorified. Take most of the recent mainstream cinemas, you will see the villain or the person who commits crime coming out of it. Drishyam, Irul, Lucifer etc are some examples that pops in my mind. I was expecting a glamorized version especially when DQ is playing the lead role. But director Srinath Rajendran went full guns and glorified the criminal mind. Here Kurup is like mini Sherlock Holmes or Professor from Money Heist who has a move after forseeing the move of the opponent 5 steps ahead. Just imagine how big a genius "this" Kurup is when he makes fool out of military, police department and wait wait the UAE prince. This is where I personally found the makers just focused on glorification which made this an out n out half baked attempt. In short, this is not DQ playing Kurup, but Kurup being DQ. Else tell me what explanation they can give us allowing DQ to sport long hair in a military zone?

      I hope makers have an answer to these doubts.

      DQ is being DQ. You really won't see Kurup here. But his onscreen charm is the only saving grace. Actually we don't see much of him more than half of the movie. In fact I don't recall seeing him in the first half after the first 20-30 mins. I honestly don't know why people are going bonkers over Shine Time Chacko's performance. Its something he normally does. When he was asked to do something different..like Kayamkulam Kochunni..we saw what happened . Shobita just came and gone and Indrajith was just repeating himself. I just don't know whats Sudheesh's character. One performace or rather moment I liked was the actor who played the role of Charlie (Chacko). He created an impression within those few moments. Bharath looked stylish in his cameo.

      The songs were literally bad while the BGM was stylish. The shots and the artwork (or graphics) were outstanding especially the night shots.

      This movie is weird in a way. It tried to be realistic and just when DQ came, its all glorification. But did it entertained me...NO...It was kinda boring majority parts.

      Spoiler ൽ പറഞ്ഞിട്ടുള്ളതൊക്കെ ശരിക്കും നടന്നിട്ടുള്ളതാണല്ലോ... സിനിമയിൽ explanation ഇല്ല എന്നുള്ളത് ശരിയാണ്

      ലോകസിനിമയെ പോലെ ഇവിടെയും കുറച്ചു grey shaded protagonists ഒക്കെ ഉണ്ടാവട്ടെന്നേ എന്താ കുഴപ്പം 😃
