Ivan Megharoopan (2012) Malayalam Movie Review Aggregator
State Film Award winning ‘Ivan Megharoopan’ that has been directed by P Balachandran that has Prakash Bare playing the lead role has been released. The film seems to have deserved every honour that has come its way, going by the highly positive critic reviews. Here is what they have to say about the film.
Nowrunning sounds absolutely impressed: “As seen through the eyes of the several women whose lives he walked into and out of in no time, the poet’s bohemian life appears as one that had defied all conventions. What is extremely appealing about the film as such are the aforementioned open ends that it leaves around by design that ensures that it ends up being neither prejudiced nor judgmental.”
Rediff affirms that the film has a soul: “Ivan Megharoopan is a creative interpretation of the life story of poet P Kunhiraman Nair. It follows the soul-searching of a renowned poet who knows that he has hurt people who cherished him and that may be the heavy price he has to pay to sustain the flow of poems from his pen. The interplay of humour, irony, pathos, guilt and remorse makes the film interesting.”
Sify says this one is worth your time for sure: “Ivan Megharoopan succeeds in taking the viewer along with the narrative and the intriguing life of the poet has been presented in an attractive style. The film may not be looking at all the aspects of the life of a genius but then, it leaves you with the kind of feeling of delight that very few films provided the viewer during recent times.”
