Munnariyippu : A movie that haunts

A movie that haunts. You won’t see the star Mammootty at any point of movie – it’s all Raghavan, a mysterious, intelligent double homicide convict. The brilliance of Director-Writer-Actor is visible on the way Ragahavan is moulded and shown. Aparna Gopinath did the best of what she can. Ranji Panicker, Nedumudi Venu, Saiju Kurup, Sasi Kalinga and almost all supporting actors did a fabulous work on supporting the whole thread. Prithviraj Sukumaran’s clean cameo performance needs an applause. Unni R, ‘the pen’, did a stunning writing keeping Raghavan as a mysterious yet interesting character with simple, witty, like-a-haiku and clever dialogues. Bijibal’s fabulous background music is haunting, to the theme and really works as ‘warning’ for the whole story. Finally Venu sir, the ace cinematographer stunts the audience with a fabulous movie making pattern and a very shocking and haunting climax! Hats off to the Crew and Cast, it is fabulous experience. And Mammooty – this is kind of Mammooty we wish to see.
