About The Movie

Alphonse Puthran had once said that one can lea anything about cinema from the inteet. His latest movie ‘Premam’ suggests that the inteet would not alone suffice. ‘Premam’ will sure tu out to be a superhit considering that such kind of movies (Oru Vadakkan Selfie being an example) has hit the jackpot. But for me, it was a huge let down.

Cinema is not about stringing together some incidents that one has experienced or heard about into a ‘story’. Maybe it may evoke nostalgia and empathy, but cinema has to go beyond that. ‘Premam’ does start off promisingly. We have in ‘Premam’ a school going George David (Nivin Pauly) who like most of the boys his age, tries to woo a girl named Mary (Anupama Parameshwaran). A freshness is felt in the narrative at this point, with a small town atmosphere captured brilliantly. Dingy houses, unpaved roads, dowdy classrooms - it’s a quintessential contented life of an average Malayali.

As the movie progresses on to a college going George, there is a shift as we get to see the youth transition. Girls, booze and smoke rule, and in a way valorize this. You don’t get the girl you wished for, drink till you puke, discuss about her with frieds and get her out of the system. George does all these and more. Nivin Pauly tries valiantly to put on this persona. However, a drunk Nivin looks like a bad imitation of Mohanlal’s similar roles. Another love affair which tragically doesn’t go as planned, more booze, and on to a new chapter.
