Monsoon mangoes – A classic take on dreams,failures and life
When I first watched trailer 3 months back then itself I though movie will be a different experience.After watching this movie it completely exceeded my expectations.
Movie is about -IMDB description
‘D.P Pallickal, an amateur film maker who claims he is the next film legend. D.P has great passion, but lacks talent. His family and friends constantly make fun of his amateurishness of his masterpiece short films
Fahadh Faasil plays a character named D.P pallickal in his 30’s and still pursuing his dream to become a film director with his short films but fate never supports him.He always be failing in his attempts and nobody understands his depth of films.After some days in his place another ex Bollywood star played by hindi actor Vijay comes down after quitting movies long back.So Fahad meets him and tells a story named monsoon mangoes.It is about a lonely old man finds a bunch of mangoes on a street and with each mango he reflects a memory of his life .
So shooting will start but various reasons will come and most of them they fail in their efforts.Every day is a challenge for them as they have to face many issues professionally and personally.So are they able to complete the movie or not you have to watch the film
Film revolves around the issues faced by Independent filmmakers in their films.Movie ends on a high note and the last 15 mins are emotionally well done.Dialogues are top notch as they reflect human spirit,dreams and life.Cinematography is another great thing about the movie.Every shot is brilliant with technically superior than most regional movies.Acting wise everyone did their best especially main actors fahad who completely transforemed into the character as an innocent filmmaker who wants do art films.Another actor Vijay did his best in portraying emotions,lonliness and anger.Fahaad friend played by vinay is a comic relief in the movie.
Some of the dialgous from the movie
‘When a mirror shatters it becomes different mirrors … when a dream shatters it becomes a million dreams
‘Cinema is big than life but life is bigger than cinema
‘There are 3 types of people in the world .who do normal jobs ,who wants to more than that and realize their dreams and 3rd category are who fails but still tries to achieve them
Finally Manosson mangoes is a neglected masterpiece of Malayalam cinema.Everyone should watch this movie to understand essence of following their dream.Filmstudents should watch this film defiantly as it will connect to them more and they can feel with the main character and can understand how much it is difficult to be a independent filmmaker.Well done Abi Varghese by directing this wonderfull masterpiece
