Bangalore Days Malayalam Movie Review By Abey Roy

Gopi Sundar's Songs were superb and Background score has been proportionately mixed with the movie's pace

Film: Bangalore Days

Director: Anjali Menon

Cast:  Dulquer Salman, Nivin Pauly, Nazriya Nazim , Fahad Faasil

The fact that watching the movie in a B Class theatre where the fan hums ‘tunes’ and has rats running all over and still you manage to  give unparalleled attention to the movie. Thus goes the Class of ‘Bangalore Days’. Weighing the amount of expectations, Bangalore Days is a perfectly cooked delicacy with a prefect mix of all flavours. Cousins are said to be the First ‘Best Friends’. People you grow up with, you share everything. With times moving to nuclear families and cousins separated by distance Anjali Menon has perfectly showcased three cousins with entirely three ways of life sharing a bond which gets stronger with time.

The Story narrates lives of Arjun (Dulquer), Kuttan (Nivin) and Divya (Nazriya) three cousins who through different life circumstances are brought together in the Garden City, Bangalore.  Fahad portrays Das a workaholic who marries Divya. The Story unfolds through series of events which unfolds

Dulquer and Nazriya are back with a bang after dismal ‘Samsaram Arogyathinu Hanikaram’. The story unravels from Nivin’s narration who came up with a commendable performance. The three protagonist share equal screen space which shows how flawless script has turned out to be. But clearly the stand out performance was delivered by Fahad Faazil. Das orchestrated the course of movie at most times and Fahad bring vitality and versatility to screen. Kalpana and Parvathy T K played out the roles to perfection. The cameos by Nithya Menon and Pratap Pothen are worth mention.

The Story takes a dig at Social life of a Malayalee, the concept of arranged marriage and differential attitude towards differently abled  and blue collared jobs. Throughout the movie the Writer-Director effectively draws out the ‘Generation Gap’ and gives wings to generation longing to fly high.

Anjali Menon had always dealt with Nostalgia and Family Bonds in all her ventures. If ‘Manjadikuru’ was the joy of home coming, Bangalore Days deals with lifes of Freedom and Joy with a tint of Nostalgia. When protagonist says ‘I don’t want to walk behind you, I want to walk with you’ to his differently abled crush it brings a new fragrance to the Movie.

Gopi Sundar’s Songs were superb and Background score has been proportionately mixed with the movie’s pace. Sameer Thahir is at his elegant best with cinematography. Editing by Praveen Prabhakar was spot on.

In short Bangalore Days is a Must Watch. A combo enjoyable for all generations.

Rating: 8 / 10
