Bangalore Days - Movie Review

Cast And Performance

Dulquar Salman is back with a bang, and it is his best performance after Ustad Hotel. He shares more screen space in the film compared to Nivin Pauly and Fahadh Fasil. Nivin Pauly got a better screen space in 1st half compared to 2nd half, while Fahad Fazil got more screenspce in 2nd half. Nazriya and Parvathi were good among female leads, rest of the cast are fine.

Script And Direction

Filmmaker Anjali Menon is best in both the fields- as a director and a scriptwriter. She has become successful in mixing all the necessary elements in the film, which makes Bangalore Days a perfect family entertainer. Slow pace in the second half seems to be unavoidable.

Technical Expertise

Sameer Thahir's Frames are superb, which is the main highlight of the movie. A Bangalorean, who don't even understand Malayalam language will fall for Bangalore Days for Sameer Thahir's camera work. Praveen Prabhakar would have avoided the slow pace of the film in the second half with his editing techniques.

Songs And Background Score

Gopi Sundar's Songs were superb and Background score has been proportionately mixed with the movie's pace. Track 'Maangalyam' crooned by Vijay Yesudas, Sachin Warrier and Divya is our pick.

Verdict

A perfect youth entertainer. Undoubtedly, Dulquar Salman is back on track after couple of box office flops. Go for it ! Strictly recommended. A must watch movie.
