| Great Movie...
A movie which has impressed me across all dimensions - In terms of Acting, Story, Direction, Cinematography and last but not the least Music. It is difficult to come across a great Malayalam movie these days and Anwar Rasheed has weaved his Magic yet again. It is a movie which kept me glued to the seat throughout, like his previous venture - Kerala Cafe.

I am not going to discuss the story or plot elements here, as it is to be seen to be experienced. In one sentence, Ustaad Hotel is a MacGuffin that transforms the life of the central character played by Dulquer Salmaan. He and Thilakan are the stars of this movie and did a great job, well supported by Siddique & Mamukkoya. Nithya Menen had little role to play, but did well as the supportive,romantic interest.It is sad that Thilakan would not be there anymore to amaze us with his acting talents, he will be really missed. The fresh face of Dulquer(although a striking resemblance of his Megastar Dad)was a treat to watch and had it been played by an established actor, I don't think would have given the same effect.

Watching Ustaad Hotel reinstated my belief in the Malayalam Movie Industry. I really appreciate the bold path taken by the young film makers,exploring new vistas and bringing us such contemporary visual treats! We want more...
