Simhasanam (2012) Malayalam Movie Review Aggregator
‘Simhasanam’, directed by Shaji Kailas, and starring Prithviraj in the lead role, has been released. Scripted by the director himself, the film has two heroines – Aishwarya Devan and Vandana Menon. Critics seem to have panned the film left, right and center. Take a look!
Nowrunning says that this rehash is a bit too difficult to digest: “Half way through the film, on seeing Madhavan’s entire entourage coming up his driveway, Ramanunni sighs and shakes his head! “The same old story…,” he mutters. Yes Sir, we are all in agreement with you there! It’s the very same old story, and it bores us to death.”
Sify calls it below average: “The film doesn’t work because it’s hard to empathize with any of the characters and the lead actors fail to rise above the flawed script. When DVDs of old blockbusters are available and when those classic scenes and dialogues are being aired on TV, do we need a hotchpotch of it all? It’s a mystery how films like this get made.”
