I love a good mystery, where the movie makes you really think. He starts the clock and leaves. Mohanlal plays Jayaraman, a blind man and the prime suspect in a crime he encountered. Chukwudi Iwuji may be relatively unknown to many but he also manages to make quite an impression with his character. I had the pleasure of seeing this pic at the recent Edinburgh Film Festival and it is certainly not The Apprentice.
Exam is a gem of a film. Ironically, it's only in the final few minute when too many answers are provided that the movie really disappoints. When you try to solve the mystery this time, the question yourself. Since I've seen a lot of movies lately that have most often disappointed me, I thought this would be another one. While there are moments here and there when the economy of the movie starts to encroach on your thoughts it's surprising just how much tension and enjoyment can be wrung out of the material. It's basically a riddle and if you think you're smart enough, watch it and see if you can come up with the right answer before the characters do! He outlines three rules they must obey or be disqualified: don't talk to him or the armed guard by the door, don't spoil their papers and don't leave the room.
Oppam was released in India on 8 September 2016. But what really made the film work was undeniably, the impeccable direction. Principal photography commenced on 5 March 2016 in Kochi and completed on 14 June 2016 in Chitranjali Studio in Thiruvananthapuram. It's about three cousins in their twenties, who dream of taking off for Bangalore and having a blast when they grow up. There's not one well-known actor in this cast and yet, for the most part, the acting was great. I have a hard time concentrating when watching movies, I often turn my attention to something else and because of that I get lost in the plot.
This manifests itself in various ways as the candidates gradually step up to bat and take each other on in a variety of ways. It's tense, mysterious and has a great atmosphere, and more importantly it stimulates your brain. . Synopsis Oppam English: Together is a 2016 Indian Malayalam crime thriller film scripted and directed by Priyadarshan, based on a story by Govind Vijayan. Some good, some bad, some horrific - but always interesting. So I stayed focused every minute and it never got boring.
Krishnan aka Kuttan Nivin Pauly , Arjun aka Aju Dulquer Salmaan and Divya Nazriya Nazim realise their childhood dream in an unusual manner. More like 12 Angry Men meets Cube. I had absolutely no expectations of this film. Of course, answering the question is only possible when they figure out what the question actually is. With every single minute, it gets more suspenseful and engaging.
The film, produced by Antony Perumbavoor for Aashirvad Cinemas stars Mohanlal, Samuthirakani, Anusree, Vimala Raman, Nedumudi Venu, and Baby Meenakshi in primary roles. It is such a superb character study, focusing on what people do in stressful, confusing and even helpless situations. Tensions rise as the clock steadily descends towards zero, and each candidate must decide how far they are willing to go to secure the ultimate job. The candidates turn over their question papers, only to find they're completely blank. But, surprisingly, the story is not a romantic one in the conventional sense. Bangalore Days, written and directed by Anjali Menon, stars many young stars of Malayalam cinema. Entering a windowless room, an Invigilator gives them eighty minutes to answer one simple question.
I had never even heard of it when I came across it. Jimi Mistry is probably the most recognisable face on screen but Luke Mably is great, Nathalie Cox stands out and then there's the presence of Colin Salmon, who may not be around for long but who certainly makes his presence felt throughout. Up until then we get a fine mix of psychological mindgames, some nice wordplay and a fair bit of deceit being used to pare down the competition. They have to answer one question in eighty minutes, but the question sheet they have is blank. Soon enough, the candidates begin to uncover each other's background, prejudices and hidden agendas. Eight job applicants enter a room where they are told a few rules before they begin and then left to figure out the answer to the one and only question that matters.
Not even for one minute. It doesn't get much simpler than that. It's impossible to not get caught up in the story and try to figure out just what the hell is actually going on. One actor, Luke Mably, really stood out though. Photographed in the impressive cinemascope screen shape and very sharply edited, the director takes us on a psychological journey where the characters, who are at first cagey, gradually open up to reveal their true identities.
