CAST & CREW
When it is vivid that a film is perfect in many departments, except for a couple, it is indeed a testimony to the filmmaker’s talent. And Anarkali, which is directed by Sachy, surely does justice to this statement. Earlier director Sachy associated himself with Sethu in helming the direction of a movie. Anarkali is his individual attempt (he has also penned this flick) and is indeed worth the effort. Magic Moon Productions of
Rajeev Nair has produced this movie.
A person who is truly in love will go to any extent to prove it..this is the crux of the story. The plot of the movie centers around Navy. Prithviraj and Biju Menon are ex-Navy Officers. What is the substantial role of Priyal Gor, who hails from another state, in the film? What is the importance of Miya George in this romantic film? What are the hurdles faced by Prithviraj, along with his close buddy Biju Menon? Watch the flick to find out.
Just when Prithvi Raj is basking in the success of Ennu Ninte Moideen and Amar, Akbar, Anthony, Anarkali is indeed another jewel in his crown. The audience always accepts love stories and when they speak in volumes about the intensity of it, it will only trigger the interest of the audience. Anarkali is no doubt a powerful love story that will remain in your hearts after many days of leaving the theater. The director has efficiently tapped the talents of all the actors in the film.
The role of Shanthanu is indeed a cakewalk for an actor of Prithviraj’s caliber. He virtually lives the role that has double shades. It is vivid that he has put in a lot of hard work for this flick. We all know that Biju Menon is a wonderful actor, and he mesmerizes us with his flawless comic timing and onscreen chemistry with Prithviraj. Priyal Gor is surely a person to watch out for since she kickstarts her career in Mollywood in a promising note with this film. Mia George has shown a great performance as the medical superintendent. Suresh Krishna speaks the dialects of Jeseri with much gusto. Sudev Nair, who is a winner of State Award for his flick My Life Partner, has done an outstanding job in his first attempt at commercial films. Kabir Bedi has a great voice, and it is shown vividly in this flick. Also, he is outstanding as the stubborn father.
1. The film is a visual treat to the audience, thanks to the outstanding work by Sujith Vasudev. He has perfectly showcased the unseen beauty of Lakshadweep with great fervor. It is to be noted that Lakshadweep is not often shown in Malayalam films.
2. Just like many films, the editing is good in the first half, thanks to Ranjan Abraham.
3. Vidyasagar, who is known for his melodies, has proves that he is indeed adept at good tunes, with his beautiful numbers. His tunes connect with the movie well.
What’s not there?
The second half is quite dragging. But you understand that it is indeed worth the wait after you watch the climax.
Watch the flick not only for Prithviraj’s performance but also for the other actors.Anarkali, a good attempt indeed by Sachy.
