Release date: November 29

Director: Rajeev Nath

Cast: Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi, Anoop Menon

Pakal Nakshatrangal has been scripted by actor Anoop Menon. And the rumours are doing the rounds that it is loosely based on the life of a director. Now, who is that? Padmarajan, Bharathan and even Guru Dutt… wanna add more to this list?

RAPID REVIEW: Sidharthan (Mohanlal) is a popular director but dies after falling down from a building. His son, Adi (Anoop) delves deep into his dad’s rather “interesting” life after a while and he has doubts if someone actually pushed him to death? Sidhan was a genius, but hated the hypocrisy of the conventional talents and loved the presence of women. Adi gets the help of scientist Vaidyanathan (Suresh Gopi), who can talk to ghosts, in his efforts to solve the mystery. Will Adi find out who the culprit is?

Pakal Nakshatrangal is serious cinema for sure, but after a while, attempts to take an investigative tone as well. This could have affected the final result a bit, but still it is a highly impressive and genuine effort. It’s indeed refreshing that at least some filmmakers still venture out to come out with meaningful cinema.

HIGHS: The sincerity in its making. Its serious cinema, no two ways about it… and it is a thoroughly enjoyable fare at the same time.

LOWS: The tussle between two contrasting styles - serious cinema and a murder mystery. The climax is also a letdown to some extent.

Verdict: 3 out of 5 (Good)
