Lal was impressive in a role that looked tailor made for him. My biggest gripe is with Nivin Pauly. Tamil box- office collections in Karnataka come from Bengaluru city and its suburbs, with the remaining 1. Dubai is not a magical city for those who live there. I hope for the day when a movie about Malayalees in Dubai will not include a shot of the Burj Khalifa or Sheikh Zayed Road or desert safaris.
This has ended the domination of Bollywood and Hollywood films, with even Telugu films finding slots in multiplexes across the country. The screenplay is more or less a 'Kichdi' of family dramas scripted by duo of Udayakrishna and Sibi K Thomas such as 'Udayapuram Sulthan','Karyasthan' and 'Mylanchi Monjulla Veedu' with loud humor used as a garnish over the hollow predictable plot that has lost its steam by overuse over the years. Neither the stereotypical achhayathi mother, or the ever smiling young son chubby for good measure manage to ring true even for a moment. It almost feels like he decided to make up what life in the Gulf may be like, and then shot it based on what he felt it may look like. There is a certain outsider's perspective, the dialogs and shots focused skyward resembling a child in a carnival. An aristocratic family welcomes a long-lost heir, but the young fellow may be leading his relatives down the garden path.
You may make a good voice over artist, but your what your voice garners in conviction, your face gives up. Let me start with my biggest gripe with this film. During the last couple of years, due to stiff competition among buyers, the prices of star- driven Tamil films have gone through the roof. Having spent all 18 years of my childhood in the Gulf, I always have issues with Malayalam films about people who live there. Tamil or Telugu is anywhere between Rs. In fact, Tamil masala films draw huge openings in Kerala, with the top collecting centres being Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Palakkad and Thrissur. After Malayalam, Tamil films collect the highest in the state, followed by Hindi.
It's just like any other place. And the less said about Renji Panicker's performance the better. Tamil film distribution outside of tamil nadu and rest of india. Agreeably there are few laughable humor sequences thanks to Nirmal Palazhi who's in his full form in the movie but the overall packing was tiresome with the melodrama and romance portions looking totally outdated and unconvincing particularly in the latter half of the movie. An industry analyst points out that the cost of procuring the rights for such a film is about the same that goes into making a Malayalam film with stars. Ten years ago, Tamil films were being released only in a single screen at Aurora in Matunga, a locality dominated by Tamil inhabitants. It's only a part of our lives that we choose to overlook, like the color of your car's dashboard, or the poor quality of the coffee in your office canteen.
Mumbai has also emerged as one of the key collecting centres for Tamil cinema. An actor of his caliber should be more careful in choosing roles. Among others, Bhagath Manuel,Krishna Prabha,Salini etc did their part well. And at that, my wish was fulfilled. Most of us have lived in these concrete Gulf canyons for years, and we do not look skyward. Overall,Fukri is a half- baked comedy drama without any high point as such. The show ran to a packed audience.
Tamil films have truly gone national during the last decade. . Before all of you get all anal about my intentions here, let me start by saying that I have loved most of VinSri's movies, and almost anything with Nivin Pauly in it. I appreciate that this film is inspired by true events, and I do not know as much about the titular character and his family as does VinSri, but almost all of them seem like hollowed out shells. Fukri too is no exception as the 1. Even as they huddle for those all important family photos taken on you guessed right, an old analog camera , the distances between them jump out of the screen.
The market is almost totally Bengaluru- based, with Hindi and Telugu films eating a bigger share of the box- office pie. She made her debut in the Malayalam film Chakkara Muthu 2006 , and has since appeared primarily in supporting. But, in almost every other sense, this film, in it's painful entirety, is a lost cause, a bright spark, destroyed. The narration by Siddique who once won our hearts with his rib- tickling comedies such as Ramji Rao Speaking and In Hairhar Nagar looked outdated and heavily relied- upon verbal humor from the Quartet of Jayasurya,Nirmal Palazhi,Bhagath and Kalabhavan Niyas,unlike the slapstick based humor that he has mastered in the past. I hope for the day when a negative character will not have to come with a deformed lip, excessive beard and speak a different language in default mode. Joju George,Naseer Sankranthi etc were wasted. Suddenly though, when national media woke up to the scale of Enthiran, Aurora, in 2.
Heroines Prayaga Martin and Anu Sithara were passable. Sibi Malayil's evergreen superhit 'His Highness Abdulla' to Barjatya's Salman Khan starrer 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' of late. Across our properties, regional cinema is growing at the rate of 1. Actors like Vijay and Suriya even have dedicated fan clubs that celebrate their releases with cut- outs, banners and palabhishekams. Social media also seems to play a crucial role in spreading the word about Tamil films in Kerala.
Not one of them looks like they belong in family. The technical side of the movie was pretty mediocre in general. In multiplexes outside Tamil Nadu, star- driven big- budget Tamil films have emerged as viable content. His characters, his camera, his dialogs, and even his music feel out of place. Karnataka is also the second- largest market for Tamil films outside the state.
This market excludes Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, as Tamil films usually get dubbed into Telugu and released here, or their remake rights sold to Telugu filmmakers. In the northern belt, comprising cities like Delhi, Noida, Chandigarh, Jaipur and Lucknow, Tamil films are being screened in multiplexes in limited shows and have good occupancy during the weekends. Gourishankar was very poor and lacked continuity. Sudeep Elayidom and Viswajith failed to make any impression. This isn't the stage Renji. Director Siddique once renowned for his expertise in handling family dramas stuffed with delightful slapstick humor had lost his midas touch of late with his recent filmy attempts such as Ladies And Gentleman,Bhaskar The Rascal and King Liar Story,Screenpay being easily forgettable affairs that were no way close to stature of his evergreen comedies as far as the quality of presentation is concerned.
