‘LEFT RIGHT LEFT’ movie review by Sivin M Stephen

Brilliant direction, thoughtful and powerful dialogues, great editing, best cinematography, energizing music from Gopi Sundar - that's what 'Left Right Left' is.

First of all i am thanking Murali Gopi, Arun and the whole team for this superb movie .

“നമുക്ക് ലക്ഷ്യത്തിലെത്താൻ ഉള്ള പാതയിൽ ‘ഇടതു ‘ കാല് മുൻപോട്ടു വെക്കുമ്പോൾ തന്നെ ‘വലത്ത് ‘ കാലും ഒപ്പത്തിനു മുൻപോട്ടു വരും അങ്ങനെ ലെഫ്റ്റും റൈറ്റും ലെഫ്റ്റും’ എടുത്തു തന്നെയാ മുൻപോട്ടു പോകുന്നത്…നിനക്ക് അത് അറിയാമോ റോയ് “

Sahadheven (RPM leader/Communist Party Leader) to CheguvaraRoy (Murali gopi) in the film.

I think this dialogue is enough to gives a idea about the film, here the character is not saying about the right and left parties ,it is related to the depedence of the switching of role need to play in politics.

” നിക്കെണ്ടപ്പോൾ നിക്കണം ,കൊല്ലെണ്ടപ്പോൾ കൊല്ലണം ,അങ്ങനെ മുൻപോട്ടു പോകണം “

And character also saying

“ബുർഷ്വാസിയെ തോല്പിക്കണമെങ്കിൽ ബുർഷ്വാസിയുടെ അച്ഛൻ ആകണം “.

The film is brilliantly plotted in between the three characters Roy, Vattu Jayan and Sahadevan.

Characterization is superb till the climax, at climax every principles disappears and falls in cinematic end before the end everyone has his own principle, views and stands in the film. And everyone brilliantly acted to take it to the next level,whether the actor has one scene or more, everyone superbly acted.

Murali Gopi trying to tell his perception about the communist party existence in Kerala before and now, even though I could not agree with his solution in story still I got enough thoughts to think about the communism in a thrilling style from this film.

And its also need bold and guts for picturing a story of leaders who are flesh and bones of the party,for that hats off to the team. Also Gopi criticize the media with crystal clear statements , in one scene antagonist say

” ആദ്യം ഉറുമ്പ് ചത്ത വാർത്ത‍, ഉറുമ്പ് ചാവുമ്പോൾ തവള വാർത്ത‍, തവള ചാവുമ്പോൾ പാമ്പ് ചത്ത വാർത്ത‍ ,അത്രെയുള്ളൂ ഈ മീഡിയയൊക്കെ …. ”

“A life is marriage of elements and death is divorce of elements “. Man is Part DNA…. Part Unknown… Part what he sees as a kid “

These are some exceptional dialogues in the film and also film is starting with picturing ants and ends in ants gathering.

I wished to write up all dialogues of film here, because each is perfect ones. I noted many things which is brilliant piece of work, but i am not disclosing it for non viewers and many things are beyond the description.

Brilliant direction, thoughtful and powerful dialogues (which we are missing in malayalam cinema in recent times), great editing, best cinematography, energizing music from Gopi Sundar (even though its anthem inspired from rakthacharitha, its heats up whole film moments ).

Overall: I recommend this film to all who needs a thoughtful idea about the communism and if you interest to see politics ideology of Kerala in a thrilling plot then this film is for you .

But NOTE: THIS FILM IS NOT A PURE POLITICAL FILM BUT IT IS A “POLITICAL THRILLER “.

My Rating: 8 / 10
