916 (2012) Malayalam Movie Review Aggregator
M Mohanan’s new film ’916′ starring Anoop Menon, Malavika Menon and Monica in the lead roles has been released, but the responses do not look all that positive. Here is what the critics thought of the film.
Nowrunning says the film looks like a UFO that has landed on an alien land: “Believe me, there is a whole lot of spoon feeding going on, since the makers really want us to take home some message really worthy. But regrettably the spoon left for far too much a time leaves a real bad taste in your mouth.”
Rediff calls it preachy: “Anoop Menon does his best to look convincing as the father of a teenager, and somehow succeeds (we just wish he had a solid ground to stand on). Asif Ali gets a mentor like character that is laced with humour. All other actors feel like walking through their parts. On the whole, 916 ends up just being preachy at the cost of telling a good story.”
Sify states that it is watchable: “916 could work for those who are not looking to be mesmerized by some new narrative style. Decide on your preference.”
