4. Angamaly Diaries (2017)

It only takes a dirty look to set off hair-trigger tempers of men of Angamaly, small but crowded southern Indian town, in the dizzying action Comedy Angamaly Diaries. A war between a former sports team of nice guys and a tougher crew lead by two pork butchers causes several casualties, but gives Director Lijo Jose Pellissery good excuse to stage a series of exhilarating free-for-alls. Comic despite its violence, story is so well told that two hours of mayhem fly by at the pace of machine gun fire. Though a lot more down and dirty than Gangs of Wasseypur, it could tap some of the same audiences and would make a colorful crowd-pleaser at festivals. It has been a breakout hit in India, with many states signing up for remake rights in languages other than Malayalam. And yet its local atmosphere that makes the film so engaging and immediate. Talented Pellissery, who has been making his way up the ladder in a series of action-Thrillers set in his native Kerala, and his imaginative screenwriter, Chemban Vinod Jose, wrap each scene in a tangled mass of details as thick as pork, potato and chili curries that bubble over in the opening credits. In fact, petty tit-for-tat vendettas and headless group slugfests seem to spring from spicy food residents eat and homemade toddy they pour down their throats, and most big fights take place between contenders who are roaring drunk. Dozens of non-pros acting in local dialect make up a loud and raucous cast, adding further note of authenticity to proceedings. Though always on lookout for scuffle, theyre quick to forgive and their ready sense of humor is endearing. In a whimsical opener that turns out to be a flash-forward, small man visits a local fixer to whine for Revenge after getting beat up by Vincent Pepes team in his jewelry story. But gruff boss is busy serving toddy and curry he makes from python, and kicks him out. Pepe narrates his story in voiceover, starting from when he and his BEST men were choirboys in Catholic school. Characteristic of Angamaly is that its Christian community and its gaudy festivals revolve around a picturesque church, most attractive sight in scruffy tropical paradise. The place is famous for its pork, and when Pepe and his gang grew up, they opened a lucrative pig farm. Bloody slaughter scenes, in which animals are hacked or bludgeoned to death offscreen, will put most viewers off ham for a while. They are making good profit by undercutting their mentors Ravi and Rajan, tough brothers who have served time for murder and are now kings of the Angamaly pork trade. If dispute plate of rabbit meat, or somebody feeling up somebody elses sister, can set off a furious gang fight, imagine what happens when good butchers flex their muscles at bad ones.

3. Aalorukkam (2018)

If you practice taking back with you one image of all that you have seen in a movie, and that image pops up whenever you think of Aalorukkam, it is quite likely going to have Indrans in it sitting on wheelchair or walking around in Thullal costume or just staring out of hospital window on lonely nights. The last is mine. It is difficult to imagine a frame without Indrans, even when other significant characters are all around him, even when he goes nearly mute in the last half of the movie, the exact opposite of the first half, when an old man find falling on the road, staff and patients of hospital find him to be humorous, talkative and interesting chap with sad tale. He has come in search of his missing son, who as lad had left home after an argument with his dad, 16 years ago. I must have said something wrong. I didnt like his new friendships, Indrans as Pappu Pisharody say. Wheel around by a young nurse or bystander, he chats merrily with young Seetha, a doctor, who rope in her journalist friend to find his lost son. The policeman also tags along. As search brings results, Pappu Pisharody is in for shock. Revealing it would be a spoiler for the movie, but with the state award coming to Indrans for his role, gist has been pretty much out there. My son has turned into a woman, with a family. And here, Sreekanth Menon does exceptionally well. Transgender characters in Malayalam movies are sometimes so exaggerated or made mockery of, that Sajeevan turning into Priyanka with her colourful saris and motherly expressions is quite relief. You forget there is any issue here, as you should, and Abhilash has done an exceptional job here to make it so. Avoiding tiring old stereotypes. Pappu, of course, doesnt find it so very natural for a 75-year-old man living in his old ways, seeing woman instead of the son he had raised with his Sarojini. Indrans, like he does with every other serious character, seems to do this one with ease. But there is obviously a lot of hard work behind it, learning art form entirely new to him. It doesnt seem too exceptional only because he has always been such a lovely actor. Every other actor sons partner, little daughter, doctor and every new face delivers lines so easily, flowing into scene that nothing looks out of place or unnecessary; mark of lovely scripting and editing here, and sensible selection of cast. Music flows through the movie, perhaps a tad too much, in the background and then as a song in the later half. Ronnie Raphael has put naadan folk touch to song that make Pappu reflect. He thinks too through lovely shot of rainy night when son appears like in a dream, like premonition.

1. Ottaal (2015)

Grandmaster is a thriller based on the Agatha Christies ' ABC murders. A senior IPS officer, played by Mohanlal, gets anonymous notes from Z tipping him about murders that he is about to commit. Police try to decode the pattern, and maybe the Chandrasekhars family, ex wife or daughter, is next in line. The ending was disappointing with an unneeded Drama-ish climax, but it is good Watch that keeps you hooked. Read: BEST lesser know Malayalam Movies to stream online Now there are several other Malayalam films on the Netflix list. Ive kept this small list which might appeal to the majority. Minnaminungu follows a mother who does odd jobs to educate her child and how society takes advantage of such women. Surabhi Lakshmi won the National Award for leading performance, but personally I felt minor characters did not do justice to their roles. Aalorukkam is a beautiful film in which an ageing father goes in search of his son who ran away from home but is unable to come to terms with the reality that his son is now a wife and mother. The film explores difficulties faced by the transgender community, but the film does have drawbacks, perhaps because of the budget. Indrans won a National Award for his role as father. Shavam is widely acclaimed for its portrayal of the journey of a corpse to a graveyard. Mili fails in some aspects, but successfully explores depress, introverted girl finding her confidence in society that has place only for over achievers. Urumbukal Urangarilla is a comedy thriller about a man who wants to train for robbery to hatch Revenge plan. Aadu 2 is a mass entertainer but I dont know whether it would appeal to non-Malayalees as humour might be lost in translation. Be warned there are some dialogues that might make you cringe. I will keep updating list if something stellar gets added to Netflix. If you are aching for more amazing Malayalam movie recommendations, BEST place to get your fill is Hotstar. Here is a list of BEST Malayalam Movies on Hotstar to Watch Right Now, categorise into Thrillers, Drama, Romance, Social, Travel and Comedy.
