Monsoon Mangoes (2016) - Review Roundup

The film does make a relatable statement amidst all this that emphasizes that cinema is never larger than life, and its life that in due course looms large. And yet, the generic twists and turns in it makes it a film that doesn't really amount much more than a non-toxic afternoon watch. 'Monsoon Mangoes' is little more than a harmless caper that struggles in vain to drive home a point. (Read more)

Akkara Kaazhchakal was famous for its hilarious verbal exchange. That quality has been maintained in the case of Monsoon Mangoes as well. The natural dialogues and its counters have that realistic fun feel to it. I did enjoy all those parts. The problem with Monsoon mangoes is in its intention. It makes fun of those movie makers who desperately includes complexity in their movie making style. It is being sarcastic about many things in a caricature way and when it preaches at the end of all this to be true to yourself, it looks a bit weird and conflicting.  (Read more)

The movie is all about the life of D P Pallikkal and his journey to fulfill his dream. The situational comedies and the beautiful songs are the plus points of this experimental movie. The slow pace of the movie is according to the script and Mansoon Mangoes will be a best choice in this season for the lovers of good Malayalam movie. (Read more)

Fahadh Faasil delivers an extraordinary performance as DP Pallickal. He reminds that he is still the best actor of the youngsters league, with his exceptional acting skills. Director Abi Varghese has succeeded in portraying the lives of US-based Malayalis to near the perfection. But the script, which is written by the director himself, along with Naveen Bhaskar & Matt Grubb, lacks strength. The movie travels through a slow pace and tests your patience at certain points. This prevents Monsoon Mangoes from being an audience-friendly movie. (Read more)
