Malaikottai Vaaliban (2024) Movie Review

The folklore of the beast.(Grandma narrating a mythical story)Firstly, I contend that this film may not significantly impact the box office, primarily due to the preferences of the Malayali audience. While it’s true that there has been a growing acceptance of art in cinema, those very individuals who appreciate artistic endeavors seem unwilling to forego the mass appeal and adrenaline-filled moments associated with their favorite actors, Mohanlal being a prominent example. There is an expectation for something markedly different, but the audience often becomes fatigued and concludes that the film falls short of expectations. Some argue that watching an LJP movie is not everyone’s cup of tea, and the notion that the major audience deems it as such is dismissed as an excuse to distance themselves from what they perceive as a subpar cinematic experience. Personally, I attended the theatrical screening solely for one reason – LJP.
