 The movie talks about Kunjali, who died for the nation and his heroic events in life. The movie starts with a mind-blowing song and takes the pace slowly with history, myths and imagination. History mixed with a lot of imagination is the highlight of the movie.

The most awaited, the most discussed, the new history of Malayalam movies, ‘Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea’ rolled on the silver screens finally at 12 midnight Thursday. The fans welcomed the movie wholeheartedly with music, dance and slogans. The rush for the fans' show was uncontrollable.

There is no movie in the history of Aashirvad cinemas that was discussed at this level. From the switch-on of the movie, the movie was praised and became a wonder to the whole cinephiles. The biggest big-budget movie Malayalam has ever seen, 106 days shooting, year-long post-production works, national award win, delayed release date, OTT rumours, all these gave fans a tedious wait for the movie.

The movie talks about Kunjali, who died for the nation and his heroic events in life. The movie starts with a mind-blowing song and takes the pace slowly with history, myths and imagination.  History mixed with a lot of imagination is the highlight of the movie.

Kunjali Marakkar IV was the admiral of the fleet of Samoothiri. His heroism and hardships in life have been beautifully explained in the initial part of the movie itself. The first half talks about his return to the land of Samoothiri and how he became the favourite of that palace. Kunjali takes power when the lawmaker (King) denies justice to the disciples.

“Kunjali hides in the hearts of his people and not even god can touch him” is one of the dialogues in the movie and shows the popularity of Marakkar in the minds of his people. 

The movie is a must-watch and a theatre experience. It is a pure audio-visual treat. The sea, the rising tides, ship wars amidst the ocean, fire, blasts everything in the movie and gives goosebumps to the audience. The war between Marakkar and Portuguese soldiers gives adrenaline rushes and chills throughout.

Not only as the magician of the sea, Marakkar also appears as the warrior of the war field who slips in betrayals. The realistic fight sequences are yet another attraction of the movie. The prime highlight is the performance of Pranav Mohanlal as junior Kunjali Marakkar. Pranav has improved a lot as an actor. Siddique appeared as Pattumarakkar and Haresh Peradi did his role best as Mangattachan. Sabu Cyril who did the art is a man who needs a loud round of applause. The Samoothiri palace, the courtyard, the fort, gate of the fort, canons, weapons of the period all were awesome.

The DOP was by Tirru who did commendable work and editing by MS Ayyappan. The film features Suniel Shetty, Arjun Sarja, Prabhu, Ashok Selvan, Manju Warrier, Keerthy Suresh, Nedumudi Venu, Siddique, Mukesh, Pranav Mohanlal, Jay J. Jakkrit, Max Cavenham, and Toby Sauerback in supporting roles. The film was produced by Antony Perumbavoor through Aashirvad Cinemas.

Marakkar conquers hearts; history mixed with imagination ......

 Boyapati sets up a mythical tale only to let the audience down with routine treatment, but Balakrishna is here to save the day

Akhanda Movie Review : Strictly for Balakrishna’s fans

Critic's Rating: 2.5/5

Story: Murali Krishna and Akhanda are separated at birth because one of them has a destiny to fulfil and a war to fight. What brings these two together?

Review: After Legend and Simha, director Boyapati Srinu and actor Balakrishna team up for their third film – a mass masala entertainer that relies solely on the lead’s star power. A good story-line is watered down due to a miscalculated screenplay and everyone takes a backseat for NBK (including one of his characters). The end result might make the star’s fans scream 'Jai Balayya' almost endlessly but one can’t deny that Boyapati fails to pull off what he promises.

Murali Krishna (Balakrishna) is a people’s man in the faction-ridden Anantapur. He is a farmer who uses his income to build hospitals, throw a punch when needed but also reform factionists to care for nature and give up violence. His character is almost a nod to the new direction Balakrishna is willing to take with his roles. District Collector Saranya (Pragya Jaiswal) is unafraid to hold corrupt police officers accountable and dig deep into misdoings in her district with the help of Principal Secretary of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change, Padmavati (Poorna). And while enough time is spent on how Saranya falls for Murali and they both build a life together (after some weird flirting that takes place over seat belts, taati kallu and telugu tanam), this is not their story.

This is the story of Murali’s long-lost twin Akhanda (Balakrishna as an aghora/baba) who is taken away from his family by a Baba (Jagapathi Babu) because he has a destiny to fulfil. It is believed he is born to right the wrongs of Gajendra Sahu, a ruthless man who takes over an ashram and pretends he’s a saint to cover up his crimes. Also in this tale is Varada Rajulu (Srikanth), another ruthless man who takes up illegal uranium mining in Nallamala under the guise of copper mining. When people whose lives Murali vowed to protect are lost and Saranya has to fight to save what’s left of her family, Akhanda heads on a war-path to save the day.

While the basic premise of Akhanda is interesting, especially the way Boyapati sets it up by weaving a mythical story with mass moments in a way only he can, he soon loses the plot (literally) and gets carried away with giving Akhanda and Murali mass moments that are sure to elicit whistles but don’t do anything for the story. He also takes a detour to wax eloquent on everything from nature to the importance of God and temples to how women (like nature) are meant to be protected not ravaged. The irony is lost on no one when the film indulges in double entrendre dialogues, introduction scenes that involve vonis flying and women/girls being used as collaterals of war. None of this adds to the story either. From the minute Akhanda enters the frame, everything and everyone takes a backseat, including Murali. Saranya and Padmavati are turned into damsels-in-distress, Murali is lost in his own guilt and grief, and even the supposedly powerful Gajendra and Varada hold no footing now because Akhanda has the hand of Shiva himself protecting him. Nay, he is even believed to be God himself.

Balakrishna gets the chance to shine because he fills almost every frame of the film either as Murali or Akhanda. He gets to dance and indulge in dialogue-baazi when he’s not showing off his cool new avatar in slow-motion shots that focus on his fake tattoos and piercing eyes. And while that’s initially enough to give you a rush, it soon gets exhausting as the film progresses. Pragya might get an introduction (almost) on par with the hero but she’s lost to the proceedings, despite her giving the character her all. Poorna, Srikanth, Jagapathi Babu, Kalakeya Prabhakar, Subbaraju and others have one-tone characters that they breeze through.

Apart from the mass moments and fights (by Ram-Laxman) that are fun (but there are too many of them), what works for the film is Thaman’s BGM. His score and Ram Prasad’s cinematography set the tone for the film, even making the proceedings interesting when it’s clear Boyapati is filling runtime with nothing much to say. At the end of it all, the length of the film (2-hours-47-minutes) doesn't seem justified for the story he wants to tell. You are also left with the feeling that despite Balakrishna’s aghora character Akhanda taking up so much time, Boyapati misses potential there to do more with it.

Akhanda is the kind of entertainer that’ll work strictly for Balakrishna’s fans because anyone looking to just kill time over a tub of popcorn might leave exhausted. Seeing as how it has been long since a star entertainer has hit the screens, time will tell if this is the film that drives back people to the theatres.

It seems that good things do indeed come to those who wait, and we're super-excited to finally see the third season of "Lost in Space" on our television screens. 

So, you need to speed-read this article, then leap into the living room, carefully avoiding the cat and in one deft motion — like Mjollnir hurtling into Thor's awaiting hand — reach out for the remote, turn the TV on, sit back and enjoy the concluding season of Netflix's epic sci-fi, for it is available to watch. Right now. 

The show is a reimagining of the pioneering sci-fi series of the same name that aired on black-and-white TV screens across America in 1965. That show came from the imagination of Irwin Allen and showrunner Zack Estrin has reworked this in the same manner Ron D. Moore did to Glen A. Larson's 1978 "Battlestar Galactica." It's been updated, reimagined, regendered, tweaked and fine-tuned and the end result has been one of the best sci-fi shows on TV in recent years.

At the end of the second season, which aired two years ago, we saw an entire ship of robots attack and board the Resolute mothership, with more incoming to retrieve the alien engine. Maureen (Molly Parker) and Don (Ignacio Serricchio) manage to trap them, while Judy (Taylor Russell) leads a mission to send the Resolute's 97 children to the Alpha Centauri colony in a Jupiter landing ship using the alien engine, piloted by the Robot. 

The Jupiter spacecraft carrying the children escapes through a rift in space, but the human-made radar signature that the Robot followed has led the ship to an unknown star system. There they find the Fortuna, a ship that had vanished nearly 20 years earlier and was commanded by Grant Kelly, Judy's biological father.

While the second season wasn't quite as good as the first, we still expect great things from this show. With the exception of "The Expanse," "The Orville" and "The Mandalorian," "Lost in Space" is probably the best serialized sci-fi currently on television. 

According to the official synopsis from Netflix: "In the third and final season of Lost in Space, the stakes are higher than ever and the Robinson family's survival instincts will be put to the ultimate test. After a year of being trapped on a mysterious planet, Judy, Penny, Will and the Robot must lead the 97 young Colonists in a harrowing evacuation — but not before secrets are unearthed that will change their lives forever. Meanwhile John and Maureen — with Don at their side — must battle overwhelming odds as they try to reunite with their kids. The Robinsons will have to grapple with the emotional challenge of not just being lost — but being separated from the ones they love… as they face the greatest alien threat yet."
