| Capsule Review: Pyppin Chuvattile Pranayam
The biggest issue with Pyppin Chuvattile Pranayam is its nature of conflict. It aspires to be a romantic drama but ends up as contrived activism against the lack of potable water in certain parts of Kerala. Frontman Neeraj Madhav plays the leader of a small gang of youngsters who care about this lack in their island village and try to bring in a change. Their efforts are hardly convincing and are diluted by director Domin D'Silva's poor writing and execution. Apart from the fact that the film dilly-dallies for about 45 minutes before introducing the romance (which should have been the primary theme if we go by the title), it never settles on one topic. Reba Monica John keeps showing her pearl whites in an attempt to hide her amateur acting, which director D'Silva understands. So he changes his focus on the supporting characters, most notably Sarath Kumar, whose story arc is as useless as the love story that I talked about earlier. With few episodes of poverty thrown here and there and the peculiar Kozhikode dialect as garnishing, Pyppin Chuvattile Pranayam keeps on going. The editing is horrible because, as mentioned, few sequences do not make sense owing to their incompletion. It is the mark of poor imagination and conviction, and I'm sure that the film was made as an experiment without a proper plan in place. Even Aju Varghese is unenthusiastic in this film that only has Madhav and his bunch of local actors playing with some conviction. We have seen a lot of films lately that tries to shed light on stark social issues but uses cheesy love stories as a shield to invite the readers. In marketing language, that is called clickbait, and Pyppin Chuvattile Pranayam is a good example. Skipping won't be harmful. TN.
