Varshangalkku Shesham..a fun reunion!

Let me first put in my disclaimer as always; I do not review movies but rather write my thoughts on and experience with that particular movie. 

*If you haven’t watched Varshangalkku Shesham yet, please don’t read further.

  • Major spoilers ahead


When Vineeth Sreenivasan writes “a film by Vineeth Sreenivasan and friends”, he absolutely means it!

Varshangalkku Shesham is no different. It’s his solid team that always weaves magic together. Right from the production to the music directors to the actors they are so much in sync, it’s a tribe he must be proud of! Imagine a venture with like minded friends, what a fun riot it must be! I guess Vineeth Sreenivasan is a lucky chap who gets to pull this off with ease every single time.

Be it Thattathin Marayathu, Jacobinte Swargarajyam or Hridayam, Vineeth Sreenivasan has a panache for painting poetry with his story, characters, background music and camera frames. 

Personally, I feel Odukkathil Viswajith is the icing on the cake in this team. He romanticises every frame and makes it c’est magnifique! Coupled by the beautiful background music and writing that lightly brushes the surface of romance, always stirs my soul. 

You won’t believe it, Nivin Pauly’s entry scene was so entertaining, but my eyes were fixated on how a lamb shank can look so appealing!

My favorite scene is the opening credits with “varaveena” echoing in the bgm. It immediately strumms nostalgia and tugs your heart.

You know how every Aju Varghese movie is a celebration in our household. Varshangalkku shesham found the same enthusiasm in our little boy. After whistling and clapping at Aju Varghese’s entry, our son was glued to the screen. Aju Varghese is now a master at his game. He gives every character his touch and makes it irrevocably his own. He plays the father and the son in this and he has portrayed each character with the maturity it requires. Never over the top and never subtle.. that's Aju Varghese for you.

Dhyan Sreenivasan and Pranav Mohanlal were so at ease in this movie. It shows on screen how Vineeth Sreenivasan is their comfort zone. Director's actors I must say. 

Psst..If you're a Lalettan fan like me, you're bound to skip a heart beat when you see Pranav Mohanlal's entry scene. His looks and his talks remind us so much of Lalettan, in this movie. I'm not comparing the acting or screen presence. It's unfair to compare anyone with the legends Mohanlal and Mamootty.

Another welcome affair in this movie is the comeback of Nivin Pauly after a long hiatus. I actually won't call it a comeback. I loved the hilarious satire Kanakkam Kamini Kalaaham, but it unfortunately didn't find the right audience. Go on judge me all you want, here! (Oops! njan matter nnu vittu poyee!) Nivin Pauly getting back, at his trollers and body shaming bullies, like a boss takes the cake! Once Nivin Pauly enters the movie, he walks away with it! Comic timing, screen presence everything perfect.

The best thing I liked about this movie is how they have used self deprecating humor! Learning to laugh at oneself is an art very few can master. Varshangalkku Shesham had this self deprecating humor laced throughout the movie.

The movie is a little slow, but the humor perks it up. Vineeth Sreenivasan has intelligently placed humor scenes every few minutes for relief.

If you're a hopeless romantic, stirred by emotions, who cries to beautiful music, like me, then Vineeth Sreenivasan movies is your genre and Varshangalkku Shesham doesn't disappoint for us wandering souls and romantics!
