Chappa Kurish (2011) Review Aggregator
Cinematographer turned director Sameer Thahir’s directorial debut ‘Chappa Kurish’ has garnered mixed reviews. While some critics feel that this experiment has gone well, some other think that it could have been much better.
Nowrunning feels that Sameer has won the toss this time around: “Sameer Thahir’s directorial debut ‘Chappa Kurish’ puts the scanner on the strangeness of reality in a busy city in Kerala, teeming with life. This wrenching and powerful testament on the politics of power that govern human lives, deals with issues that are real, contemporary and quite complex.”
Rediff says that Chappa Kurish does have its moments: “How one reckless act of youthful overconfidence can turn a life topsy-turvy bringing heartache and wrecking havoc in the lives of loved ones about sums up cinematographer turned director Samir Thahir’s debut film Chappa Kurishu.”
Sify calls it a disappointment: “There has been some surprises in Malayalam like Traffic, Melvilasam, Adaminte Makan Abu and Salt N’ Pepper that got released during recent months, which managed to shock everyone with its brilliance and honesty. Chappa Kurishu shocks the viewers for sure, but sadly for all the wrong reasons. Better luck next time, guys!”
