Although it may be a wee bit late for the year-end round ups, I just thought of penning this down before the first month of the new year closes its door on us. (Turns out that if you leave a post in your draft for too long, Jan will close its door on us!)
2011 was an excellent year for the Malayalam film industry, if you ask me. Right from Salt N’ Pepper which is probably the first Malayalam movie that told a story that celebrated food, and the love for it, to Beautiful which captures the beauty of life, the films had quite a few unique stories to tell. Pranayam was heart-warming while Adaminte Makan Abu almost made it to Oscar list. The most underrated movie of the year has to Melvilasom, which deals with some pretty serious and contemporary social issues. Salim Kumar, Vineeth Srinivasan, Anoop Menon, Baburaj, Fahad Fazil, Shewtha Menon, and Kavya Madhavan have given us performances to remember for a long time to come.
I had contributed this article to TDNPost.com, recently. Take a look:
