Story of a lost journalist

Kerala Cafe – ahhh :-)

Wonderful wonderful movie
I loved Kerala Café. All 10 stories.

I will not attempt a review – I don’t think I could do justice to the movie by trying to write about it. But I will say I am feeling extremely sentimental right now. About my own life, about my old friends, about old relationships, about my school, my college, and a thousand other things I used to have but I have somehow grown so distant to now. Either through time, or through distance, or through emotions or through – nothing at all.

No the movie isn’t exactly a kind that tries to make you cry or emotionally break you down. All 10 stories are about people – no exaggeration, no drama, no superhero stuff – just people. It is a wonder how when some 2 n a half hour movies could make you feel so gross, this one has all its 10 stories each in one tenth the time, doing the job of story telling so beautifully. And we all thought good stories were having their own kind of recession all this while!

Anyway, I would tell those who can follow Malayalam, to do see it. I liked it. A lot.

  2. Wally, I thought there were 11 stories. The 10 sub-movies and then a final 11th movie which is supposedly vaguely based on the other 10. That’s not so then?

    • @Nishboy, no it is just 10 stories. Most of it is happening or has some connection with this restaurant called Kerala Cafe. By the last scene of the last story, we see characters from most of the other stories coming out from the Cafe.

      • Geez! So the main director did not do anything then! The other 10 directed one sub-movie each and this guy just sat and watched them do it. Smart of him!
