Delightful “Minnunna” Entry of the Superhero Genre into Malayalam
You’ll feel a sense of wicked delight originating from the cinematic social milieu that Basil Joseph is so known to masterfully create as you sit down in your living room and watch Baiju and Rajesh Madhavan in their policemen characters waiting in a “thattukada” for a man to give him an earful, perhaps a handful. The man is a poovalan who’s supposed to come down to a bus stop to meet his girlfriend. That deed may or may not happen but that is not the point of this fantastic sequence that introduces almost everyone in the film that needs an introduction.
It is therefore this world-building that I want to point out that makes Minnal Murali (Lightning Murali, Mister Murali) a fresh wave into the Malayalam cinema. With equal weightage given to the primary and secondary characters (especially the central duo) and a weaving plot that experiences starting trouble but soon takes off, Minnal Murali maintains a steady pace with a mix of dry humour, heavy drama, and scattered social commentary. None of these take centrestage though as the story evolves into a bona fide superhero template that still doesn’t feel trite. The background score and surprisingly well-done VFX were the highlights for me as I sat down being enthralled by the sheer magic in the way the story is written.
Minnal Murali has heralded the superhereo genre with the punch that it demanded and I for one am riding the happy wave. More than anything, this is clever cinema, one that makes you marvel at all the tiny and larger bits of writing that make up this jubilant confluence. Something that you can use to forego the cliched shadow that hangs over the plot sore. You can’t miss how the story evolves at a meandering pace, narrating the origin of the evil and the good equally well. Something that I don’t see usually in this genre. Watch it, you’ll like it.

Delightfully Funny and Entertaining
The age old trick for making a film work and specially a Superhero flick is smart storytelling. It is an art to make a superficial story digestable to the audience. Minnal Murali does that with an surprising ease.
Tovino Thomas’ charming appearance as the superhero is fresh and thoroughly entertaining. His innocent performance lifts the movie to a tremendous heights. Thanks to that performance the occasional screenplay flaws gets covered up.
The writing is sharp albeit not flawless. But there is enough moments to make you enjoy the film. Emotions, comedy and of course a little bit of romance. What else do you need? This is a wholesome script.
Coming at last to the production stuff. The action, score and the visual effects suits the mood of the film and complements the story well. Although one can demand more but at this stage such an impressive production design is commendable.
Overall this is one of the rare event films which lights up your screens and one should not miss. Can’t wait for the sequel to create magic of even larger scale.
