Audience feedback of Mamangam
“I watched this film yesterday along with my family .If you look at the film it depicts a historical tale that dates back to the 17th century. Mamooka and all the other actors have done justice to their roles and the script is good and nothing to blame. There is strong acting, emotions and good songs Now the picture might look a little less interesting for teens and single people . It stays well connected with the emotions of a mother and child.
Overall a good family movie . We have seen lots of disaster movies way bad than Mamangam so I don’t understand the reasons as to why some people have such a bad review below and also theater responses . Kudos to the director and all supporting artists. The child actor is brilliant” – says Vishal who gives 4 star for the movie
“Mamangam is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea. It can’t be equated to the megastar’s magnum opus Pazhassi Raja (2009) or even his classic Vadakkan Veeragatha which was released thirty years ago. The director goes for grounded storytelling and the script is shallow and lacks punch lines or even dialogues that can be remebered for long.
The star cast, notably Mammootty, the ever flexible Unni Mukundan, the commendable kid Achuthan, Siddique, Prachi Tehlan and Manikantan Achari give impressive portrayals, but on the other hand talented artists including Kaniha, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Anu Sithara, Valsala Menon.etc weren’t given the space to get noticed. While the set design and art direction truly deserves a standing ovation, the cinematography is in fact not glossy enough and fails to explore the huge canvas. And the most disappointing aspect of this movie is the editing part. The cuts were so mediocre which tampered with the commendable action choreography.
Given that he is 68 and maintains his body very well even now, Mammootty gives his best for the character. He is careful enough to not ham it up when the character turns effeminate. The best performance comes from Unni Mukundan and young Achuthan. The film picks up speed in the second half. With its script turning out to be the biggest villain, Mamangam tries to convey a message which has to be noted.” says Pranav who gives 3 star.
