Masala shift in Mollywood!!

Its a long time since I wrote on my blog. Something that I noticed recently....I just watched a couple of movies this month.What struck me is, there is a change in the malayalam movie structure. The story, music concept everything seemed to be different and had a lot of suspense that drove you to the theater.Anwar had a lot of action, but it was justifiable for the concept of the movie.Story was Superb and music so soothing to the ears..One need not explain how "Shreya Ghosal" sounds...for me her voice is like tinkling crystal glasses melodious and she adapts to any language so naturally...Anyone who has heard "Kizhakku Pookum" would'nt even have dreamt it was sung by a Bengali girl!!!!....Wonder if she would be the next "Lata Mangheskar".....Cocktail was suspense driven right from the keep guessing who's the culprit and there goes the first time I've ever seen a movie with the Picturised villain turning hero and the glamourised Hero turning villain .....Stories well crafted....Music directors like Gopi Sunder , Ratheesh Vega and Alphonse have proved they are here to stay and make it big in the film Industry..Such nostalgic songs....Gets you to the 80s and 90s nostalgic era...Well Pranchiettan and the Saint was another hit movie this year.....A small sweet humorous story...thats what i heard from one of my friends....The way of story telling has indeed changed in the Malayalam film industry. Way away from the masala, foreign "locationised" songs and mimicry comedy. Hope the so called Malayalam Film industry crisis is melting down and is giving way to new and upcoming actors like Prithviraj, Indrajith, Anoop Menon, Kunjacko Boban, Jayasurya
.....No wonder why every good malayalam movie is being remade into Hindi and Tamil.....
