Alphonse Putharen’s Premam is about George David (Nivin Pauly) who experiences love with three different women during his life and how these women change his life is depicted in the movie. The movie also focuses on the changing world and how George’s friends get involved in his attempts to woo these women.
Nivin Pauly is brilliant in this movie. He successfully gets the transition of his character right from George’s teenage to adulthood. The supporting actors are superb in their role. Krishna Shankar and Shabareesh Varma are superb in their roles.
The direction of this movie is stupendous. Rarely have I seen a coming of age movie flowing as seamlessly through its narrative as Premam. The movie is almost 3 hours long but there is not a moment when you are bored. The script of the movie is superb. The transition of time has been thoroughly focused in the script. The methods of wooing change and the maturity of the romances change.
Everything works for this flick. The cinematography is superb in this movie. Alphonse Putharen, the director of this movie, has himself edited the flick which worked out pretty well for this movie considering its running time. The direction always has a vision of the movie even before its made, and Alphonse has ensured that scenes keep on changing continuously that the audience doesn’t feel the long running time. The score of this movie is awesome. And I really liked that Contra song which was so perfectly timed in that movie.
The movie’s best aspect was that it focused on the stationary characters’ dialogues too. If you have watched the movie, of which chances are humongous, you may notice that although the camera is focused on the main characters, there are dialogues in the background that are audible to us, and they give us some of the best laughs and realism. The movie has infused everyday life into its core like Court and therefore gives us the best laughs that many of you, and also me, haven’t had since a long time. Really, after the release of 3 Idiots, this is the only movie that had me laughing from the beginning to the end.
This is the only Indian movie which has learned from Hollywood movies. I recounted Juno and (500) Days of Summer throughout the flick. About the faults, I think that movie does drag a little on the Malar sequence but believe me in the end, you will end up wanting more.
Premam is a superb entertainer and one of the best movies of the year which will leave you laughing from the start to the end. Everything fortunately works for this movie, and supplemented by the superb script, this movie is a treat and should we watched as soon as possible (for which you may have to wait because in some places, the tickets are already booked for three weeks. I too had to come empty-handed from the theater 2 times because the tickets were sold out the previous day and therefore, I intentionally went to a newly opened mall in a remote place. Got middle seats, can’t complain ! 🙂 )
Rating : 9.3 / 10
