Movie Review : Trivandrum Lodge

Here comes another marvelous movie from the makers of 'Beautiful' and 'Cocktail'.Either you call it the new genre of Malayalam cinema or the coming of talented and versatile artists like Anoop Menon , Malayalam film industry is changing.Without any big start cast, this movie looks appealing to the masses and its been proved again that no big star cast is needed to make a good movie.Bawdy(read adult) humor is something that drives the whole movie and keeps it going, even though it lacks in plot.

The story of Trivandrum Lodge revolves around the lives of the people living, offcourse at the Trivandrum lodge which is owned by Ravishanker played by Anoop Menon and his wife Malavika played by Bhavana.Abdu, a  resident at the Lodge with the traits of a nymphomaniac, portrayed by the ever improving Jayasurya is the highlight of the movie.Honey rose portrays the role of Dhwani,a bold and beautiful divorce e and a  writer who comes to the lodge to write her new novel.Child artists Master Dhanajay and Baby Nayanthara also render commendable performances.The script and dialogues by Anoop Menon is quite impressive although the plot does have it's loose ends.May be its the coming of the new Malayalam cinema, the way sexuality is treated in this movie, it looks far from being vulgar.Let it be the casual sex talk between women or sexual urge of a sex starved man, all had been scripted and portrayed excellently well.And the singing by M Jayachnadran is simple mellifluous.

All in all the movie looks impressive enough to be hit among the malayali audience and joining the caravan of those movies which succeeded without any big star cast, the likes of 22 Female Kottayam,Cocktail,Beautiful to name a few.So Hats off to the combo of Anoop Menon and Jayasurya for making such a good movie.

Rating : ***/5
