| Oh! you beauty you Soubin
Finally a good Malayalam movie after a very long time. The last good movie I saw was Rakshadhikari Baiju Oppu and its been one tedious movie after another since then.

Althaf Salim's directorial debut Njandugalude Naatil Oridavela was pretty decent. Soubin Shahir has simply taken it to another level altogether. Brilliantly shot. Absolutely brilliantly shot.

If you watch it on a small screen you would be doing the movie & the director a disservice. Parava deserves to be viewed on the big screen. You simply have to watch it in a theatre to fully appreciate the directorial brilliance. Near flawless from beginning to end. The only recent movie that would come close in terms of visual brilliance is Angamaly Diaries and I think this one is the clear winner.

The movie was promoted as a Dulquer starrer and its only later that I realized that our man appears only in an extended cameo. So my expectations had come down dramatically.But boy oh boy what a movie. Just pure cinematic excellence.

Parava follows the life of 2 kids who raise Pigeons for sports in Cochin. Going into the movie I had no idea about the pasttime sport of Pigeon flying. Apparently the Pigeon that stays the longest in the air is deemed the winner.

After a few poorly chosen movies Dulquer has hit peak form again with Parava. Even though the entire cast has done a brilliant job, Dulquer is clearly first among equals. Those 20-25 minutes are his best work to date. Its like he was born to play the role of Imran. The 2 kids who play the lead are brilliant as well. At no stage do they come across as novices. Its brilliantly cast. I have lost track of the number of times I have used the word brilliant in the review. Even Jacob Gregory does a serious role for a change.

It is a magnificently shot movie.

Do yourself a favour and go watch it. Thank me later.
