Pazhassi Raja is brilliant -- Says Rediff.com

Rediff says: The reunion of the team who gave us the classic Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha has a winner on its hands, if not a classic of the same proportion.


Pazhassi Raja is brilliant - Says Rediff.com

This movie made on a budget of average ten Malayalam movies, has a quality that has never been seen before.

It is the tale of a historical superhero, narrated in a typical filmi fashion with many moments that stir up excitement in the audience. Pazhassi Raja (Mammootty) is said to have revolted against the British even before the famous revolt of 1857 began. His oft-repeated argument is -- should people who came to trade pepper and cardamom be allowed to govern us?

Mamootty may be the hero of this film but, he does not hog the limelight. There is ample scope for other stars like Sarath Kumar and even Manoj K Jayan to exhibit their histrionic skills and use their star aura.

The ensemble of the supporting cast is also used well. Padmapriya as Neeli, who is engaged to Thalakkal Chandu has good scope to do action sequences. [ Read complete review @ Rediff ]
