Movies watched in 2018


It’s been an all-day plan that I should note down and make a list of movies I watch for the first time. By the start of 2017, I started noting them down and later as usual like every other new year resolution this too faded down somewhere in the west. Anyway by the start of this year I’m on it.

How is this going to make a difference? Ever thought how many days you’ve got to live? For most of us its probably somewhere around 22,000 days. Out of that, a major chunk is down now. Ask me what I did. I would wonder the same. Once at some point I would want all these to justify myself at least. Majorly this is just like a diary where I scribble this and that. And being a self-proclaimed movie buff, I would like to know how many movies and would like to do a self-analysis.

I would add the name of all the movies I watch for the first and will scribble a line or two about it. Let’s see by the end of 2018 where I would be.

  1. Queen – Malayalam: With no major releases on new year this was my first go to cinemas. There was Eeda for the release in the first week of the new year and was looking ahead to watch but couldn’t as it left theatres in a week. Queen was promoted as a campus movie and never gave any hope from any end to give it a try. But it was an okayish experience as the movie emerged from the campus gimmicks to a socially relevant topic in the second half.
  2. Aadhi – Malayalam: Pranav Mohanlal stunned in his first attempt. Not one of the finest scripts or movie from Jeethu but it was satisfying.
  3. Padmaavat: The most controversial movie which was released after a long wait. Stunning show by Ranveer and Deepika.
  4. Carbon – Malayalam:
  5. Ramleela: Brilliant crafting of contemporary politics to the big screen.
  6.  Tharangam: When life status turns complicated. When tharangam ( meaning wave) couldn’t create a wave in theatres. Didn’t have a long run in theatre but was an impressive make for me.
  7. Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru: Brilliant movie, plot, script and the making which will make you bite your nails.
  8. Next Three Days: Stand out jailbreak movie.
  9. Rakshadhikari Baiju: Life of another common man who we can find in a lot of villages in Kerala.
  10. Aadu 2: Satisfying movie in the times where all other sequels utterly fail.
  11. Poomaram: Vaiki pootha poomaram. Left the theatre with happiness. A well-made movie with a musical treat.
  12. Pari: Excellent horror movie from Bollywood. It redefines the genre.
  13. Sudani from Nigeria: I could relate myself to many points with Soubin. Happiness fled from the heart.
  14. Swathanthryam Ardharathriyil: When Malayalam attempts a Shawshank Redemption. Not one of the finest scripts but stands out on the technical side.
  15. Wild Tales: Revenge did at it’s best.
  16. Jagga Jasoos: Still wondering how this movie didn’t survive in the box office. Is it just me the reason or all of us? Should have watched in theatres.
  17. Blackmail: For the content, narrative, and acting.
  18. Ee.Ma.Yau: Thought provoking. Another LJP brilliance.
  19. Sanju
  20. Raazi: The real heroes are there in our borders not in screens.
  21. Masaan: An emotional rollercoaster !
  22. Moneyball: You don’t need to understand baseball!
