Dr. Biju, the National award-winning film-maker is well-known for his outspoken nature. Recently, Biju shocked the industry by openly thrashing Adoor Gopalakrishnan's recently released Dileep-Kavya Madhavan movie, Pinneyum.
The director, who heavily criticized Pinneyum, stated
that it is 'an amateur movie' which doesn't even hold the standard
of a school drama. He remarks that the movie lacks both creative
and technical perfection.
According to Biju, it is extremely disappointing to see a
director like Adoor Gopalakrishnan settling for an over-dramatic
film, with badly-written dialogues and childish scenes. He points
out the scenes where the protagonist reaches Dubai, as an
Biju feels that the movie industry is showering praises on
Pinneyum, just because of the intense respect towards
Adoor Gopalakrishnan. He points out that the industry prefers to
evaluate movies considering the names behind it.
The director remarks that Vidheyan is the last
well-executed film directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan. After
Vidheyan, the legendary film-maker totally failed to
create a classy film, which has badly affected the journey of
Malayalam parallel cinema.
He feels that age is not a barrier to make good cinema, and points out Sathayjith Ray and Roman Polanski as the best examples for the same. Adoor Gopalakrishnan has not replied to Dr. Biju's comments yet.
