The last 4 movies that I have watched, have all just been amazing stuff. All 4 different types of movies, but for no moment did any of them stop to Amaze me. The 4 being Up(English-Cartoon), Unnaipol Oruvan(Tamil), Oru Pennum Randaanum(Malayalam) and Kaminey(Hindi). If I were asked to choose the best 1 among the 4, I'm sure it would'nt be possible, each one may be called the best in its respective class. I've already written about Kaminey and it stands out for Priyanka and Shahid's performances. Oru Pennum Randaanum is directed by Adoor Gopalkrishnan, who is prolly the finest director today. No, the movie is not an entertainer, but every shot in it will tell you just how great a story teller Adoor is. A period movie that it is, has been captured perfectly will in an amazing style. But you might doze off as I did, considering its not a masala movie. Art at its best.
Going to Unnaipol Oruvan. A remake of "Wednesday". This one is great too, but no not as good as the Hindi version. Its just a treat to watch Kamal and Lal on one screen. Kamal is not as convincing as Naseeruddin Shah and Lal outperforms him, but the movie is just a treat. A few unnecessary scenes make it slightly less crisp than the Hindi version. But then thats expected of a Tamil movie.
UP is just the cutest movie you'll see in a long long time. The characters, you'll keep them close to your heart. You'll cry and you'll laugh. I would'nt suggest you watch the other 3 movies, but this one is a must watch. Its as much for the older people as for the kids, probably much more for grown ups.
I wish more n more of such movies keep getting made, or I'll have to step in and make a sequel to "ONE LAST TIME". :p
