A Paradigm Shift for Malayalam Films!!
24 September 2011 | by brittondvSee all my reviews

Perhaps, its a revolutionary change in Malayalam film industry. In fact, it was a thrilling experience to watch it. The direction is indeed done so eloquently to entice everyone completely into it. On the other hand, I ain't excited as like all other movie lovers because it reminded me much about the films the Vantage Point & 21 Grams. This doesn't mean that Traffic is exactly as like those films, perfectly not. Besides, the way of presentation is not entirely new instead, perhaps, its an inspiration from Hollywood films.

Happy to realize Malayalam film industry is really in a new path of change with a bunch of youngsters. Let the age old concepts be shattered and good work keep coming. Anyhow, well done guys. Keep your good works up.
