Synopsis

Critic's Review

Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi is charming, not just by its stunning array of visuals by Gireesh Gangadharan but also by a rare flamboyance. While going into his second film Sameer Thahir has pulled off a beauty. The scenes are marked by a fluidity, the result of a painful effort tracking two youths who are on a long ride on their bikes.

Working with a beautifully crafted script by Hashir Mohamed, the film is immensely helped by two actors gifted with a flair for behaving naturally. Dulquer Salman and Sunny Wayne play Kasi and Suni who spell magic on screen assisted by the rhythmic rumble of their bullets.

Perhaps the only thing that stretches out in this film would be its title. Everything else just happens, much like how Kasi decides to go for a trip across the length of the country. He doesn't know why or where. All he hopes is that a trip would transform him without leaving traces of certain memories. Even the romance is played out at a secondary level, essayed in crisp, beautiful flourishes with minimal exchange of words. Any slightest inclination to liken this film to a classic is deftly nipped right from the outset.

If the protagonist of Motorcycle diaries is emboldened by a new found idealism, Kasi undergoes bouts of vacillation, recurring moments where he strives to stabilise himself leading up to a self-realisation of being a protector to being protected.

The lead characters are not besotted with a wild, churlish streak. In fact they appear sublimely calm most often, their tranquillity rarely diffusing into any sort of tension. The film discusses politics at its own level despite overt reference to Left-politics. There is a scene where an old Bengali Leftist stammers with bits of a feted Malayalam revolutionary song. The scene doesn't linger on. It is more obsessed with the politics of life; intriguing and sometimes plain as Kasi puts it: My fate is determined by my decisions.

Dulquer has a charismatic way of expressing himself and his portrayal of Kasi demonstrates how much he holds for the future. His voice-over is vibrant, evocative and brilliantly expressive. The script might throw up a few inconsistencies like the way the two characters move on completely safe and unharmed even as they stand witness to a man being slain in a land of riot.

A proclaimed communist youth riding a bike with a sign that celebrates an American fictional character might be jarring for his persona. It could even be contended by accounting for his varying impulses. Yet this is a film that is too luring to be chided, because of its immense scope and the sheer energy and the way it carries off a pure air of freedom.

This movie itself is a journey by two youths. This movie is picturesque and beautiful to watch. The journey is nicely portrayed by the director and this movie travels from Kerala to Arunachal Pradesh and the journey is a treat to watch for the audience. The music is also good. Along with Dulqar, Sunny is also done his part neatly.

This film (have doubt whether this can be called a 'film') is an overall failure in all of its elements..The first 'poor' this to be noted is; its immature script...

Haven't seen a better movie in the recent past. While all the other movies, to achieve success at box office, do resort to using abusive words and teen-likes-it dialogues, NPCB has resorted to a strong script and an unseen and unheard plot. Beautiful movie. You've seen nothing like it. And the music does the greasing for the movie. A perfect sync of all the elements that constitute a movie!

It's been a while in Indian Cinema that a beautiful road movie has been shot coursing all the way from South to North East India. Hats off to the entire crew for taking this initiative and hearty congratulations to them for delivering it in the most novel way.

Its a good movie with life of a young college boy and experience in college and after college. The shades of travel was displayed well and the end was bit slow, overall its good.

After the critically acclaimed "Chappa Kurish", director Sameer Thahir comes up with 2 and half hour Discovery Channel travelogue film, which has the shades of films like "Aranyer Din Ratri", "Dil Chahta Hai", "Rang De Basanti", "3 Idiots" & "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara". Despite the flashback track which is draggy, yet well unfolds the cause of the film's travel, the film has contemporary issues based strokes like the Naxalism, Communal Violence,etc. The film has a good layered screenplay by Hashir Mohammad with beautiful moments and warming dialogues. Editing by Srikar Prasad is as usual great where his editing the motif based shots actually makes the film travel smoothly. Sound Design and Production Design work is brilliant, but the cinematography by Girish Gangadharan captures the best of the journeys as well as the travellers. Music score by Rex Vijayan is actually compliments the film's journey. Now coming to performances, apart from the brilliant supporting cast, Dhritimaan Chatterjee is actually riveting and his moments with the protagonist played by Dulquer Salmaan actually make you remind of the latter's chemistry with Thilakan in the 2012 masterpiece "Ustad Hotel". Sunny Wayne is great and Dulquer Salman is absolutely great and he leaves no room for flaws in his performance where his Hindi speaking Charms you. Overall, despite the draggy flashback track, the narration by Thahir is loaded with great moments, visuals and aesthetics as well. My rating would be:4/5

Populism index is on the up. Corruption index is skyrocketing. Unaccountability index is high up nowhere in sight. These are the growth hallmarks of the UPA government. The people of the country are at pains to understand why they have to undergo such hardship to sustain the political ambitions of the government. But they have decided to fight back. They have given up on this corrupt and inefficient government and only see hope and growth in 2014 with Namo.

This movie! they shot it IN CLASSIC MODE and the outcome is a superb classic movie. Movies are of different kinds and we call it GENRE. AND it is insane to expect RIB CRACKING COMEDIES in a movie of a specific SERIOUS KIND/GENRE. We are just the audience and we are not the ones who add the ELEMENTS. ANALYSE the product and never BLAME something for not having the thing WHICH is an inevitable part of TRADITIONAL MASALA. THIS IS AN OUT OF THE BOX STUFF. Its FRESH and that's the feel i got, watching this movie. Its a peaceful, LOW-PACED movie. I did not find this as a DRAWBACK, because this GENRE needs such a PACE for a CLASSIC touch. IT is HATS OFF to the entire crew. EVERY ELEMENT in this movie has class. I LOVED IT. I CAN'T find even a tiny detail that lacks CLASS.

The movie will make you feel to go for a long ride. They could have added some more instances of a long ride, but cant blame its a 2.5 hour movie. The movie is worth a watch for one who would like to travel and the one whom would like hear and read the travel stories.
