Mamankam

Watched Mamankam with very minimal expectations after reading all those reviews that marked the movie as average or below, and trolls that made fun of it. Was surprised to see that it is a decent attempt and quite an engaging film. The sets of the old Kerala homes etc. are very aesthetically made, and the color tones used in the camera work gives a nice feel to the visuals.

I felt that the script was a bit weak, and the possibilities in the core theme to make a much more memorable film were wasted. Some of the crucial scenes like the last one which shows the reactions of the relatives (including his mother) of the teenage chaver warrior when they see his lifeless body, could have been made in a much more impacting way. But still, overall the film is worth a watch.
