Malayankunju movie review

Anikuttan (Fahd Faasil), an electrician by profession, lives with his mother Shanta (Jaya Kurupu) in a village near Wayanad. Her father Radhakrishnan (Jaafar Idukki) commits suicide due to his daughter running away from home on her wedding day. The blow constantly haunts Anikuttan, who looks down on the floor below, agitated by sounds and even the cry of a baby disturbs him.

In the monsoon season, when it starts raining heavily, his neighbors want to go camping, but he refuses. And that night, a mudslide occurs and he gets stuck under it. What happens to Anikotan, can he survive and what happens to his mother forms the rest of the film.

Fahadh Faasil does a great job of providing two types of features before and after a landslide. The film belongs to him. His behavior as a damaged son, a brother who doesn't want to forgive his sister, and a man who looks tough but is very soft emotionally is perfectly executed.

The second part of the film is about the landslide that happened a year ago in Rajamala near Wayanad. Watching this scene gives you a shock wave of how hard and traumatic it must have been for someone who experienced the pain. A time-lapse movie is like watching death face to face. It gets into your veins and is technically, visually, and functionally excellent.
