(English: When the Grapevines Sprout)

Movie tailor made for Mohanlal. He does the trick again by not acting but becoming the part. Such is Mohanlal’s talent.

This is a story about a bored middle aged person rediscovering his spouse, the love they shared, he forgot and he rediscovered. Once again very Malayalam movie and no nonsense. The acting is sensible and realistic without excess. There are no punch dialogues, no terrible comedy, no one man beating ten people for thirty minutes and no double meaning words. Also good see that the the movie’s dialogues are in Malayalam,

Meena and Mohanlal have a combined chemistry and screen presence. She provides a simple and effective performance.

The message for Young girls is impressive, specially when the neighbouring Tamil mainstream is propagating ‘every behaviour and crossing limits are acceptable. I would have loved see less drinking scenes but part of it is the story line.

Good weekend movie.

Rating MA15+  Lots of drinking scenes.3 STARS
