Tourist Home Review
Tourist Home can be said as an experimental movie canned in single shot. It is not a time killing one. A unique flow of narration and the technicalities is sure to get noticed. The story of individuals lodge at the tourist home is indeed a thoughtful one.
The plot of the story had two young boys ( Sreejith Vijay and Rajath Menon) who have a bad past due to their unethical lives, an old man (Nedumudi Venu) who has come for the medical aid for his grand daughter in the medical college, a policeman and a whore (Kalabhavan Mani and Archana), a woman (Lena) who is forced to search unlawful means to earn money to meet the medical expenses for her ill husband, two people who fear to attend an interview (Hemanth and his friend), an astrologer (Maniyan Pilla Raju) who chants different ways to get a peaceful mind, a daughter (Meera Nandan) who tries to remind the unethical ways of her father, a woman (Sarayu) who has come to abort her pregnancy from her husband's friend (Sreejith Ravi), and a gang who has taken a room for gambling, who are all staying in that ten rooms of the Tourist Home.
A technically daring venture indeed that throws light on the so-called morally and socially cultured Malayalees. An unseen picture in any recent time.
The movie has the apt cast and each one has done their best performance. The picturisation itself reminds one such a happening in their real life too.
A daringly different flick with an interesting narration. The technical side is to be emphasised. Long dialogue delivery and sequences have been deftly handled by them.
One can find hardly any 'negative'. It is not an entertaining movie but a real life depiction with full of serious moments filled in it. Do not watch it as a time pass or for an enjoyment.
The theme of 'a single canned shot' is felt nicely. The story plot is also interesting. Watch the movie with patience and not for a mere entertainment.
