  1. Lal Jose chatta…

    Thanks for your blog… waiting for the neelathamara.. thank you for postting the video of song composing… I heard you doing a movie with Kunchako Boban… Please bring back vidyasagar for the movie.. he has done his best for Kunchako movies (Niram, Satyam Sivam Sundaram)… still the songs haunts us.. this is my humble request… whoever manages this blog >> please pass this to Lal Jose Sir… and all the best for Neelathamara

  2. Sir,

    Why would Shreya Goshal sing “Anuraga Vilochanan”. Kelviyil Mothathil oru kallu kadi… The only reason I can find is that to bring the vintage feel of “Jaanaki and other veteran olders…!! But failed…

    Paatukal Kuzhapamilla… Vishya Saagar suits your movies but this is MTV’s Film.. Johnson was a better choice.. “Pakalonu” is real good.. His Voice is suits the song.

    Visuals are good. Hats of to Harri Nair… Best of luck…

  3. Lalji,
    Neelathamara really blosomed in the hearts of malayali audience.Was really a great visual treat for us and a nostalgic memoirs for the elder audience.I think the teens and the family will take up this movie to a big success.Lalji ur direction was one step up above the script of MT sir,even he always was in his best when he render the typical nadan malayli flavour.Outstanding performance by the heroine Archana(she would fetch the state award and she is real in born actress) and the hero kailash did his best(i see a future sensation in malayalam cinema).Once again Vidya ji did his magical musical and as always you gave us a visual treat.Keep going Lalji.Once again hats off to U and ur team

  6. I SAW A GLORIOUS BLENDING OF MY FAVOURITE WRITER, DIRECTOR & MUSIC DIRECTOR IN NEELATHAMARA. DEFINITELY IT WILL BLOOM AND SPREADS IN THE HEARTS OF MALAYALEES.

  7. Hi LalJose, Saw the movie on friday. Simple and poetic except for the ending. Very true and honestly sketched characters. Superb cinematograpgy. Lighting in the night scenes were excellent. Archana, Samvratha and Kailash were good. The ending looks straight out of a novel or as in the literary mode. Cinematic or a complete ending is not felt. Hence looks abrupt. Thanks for Neelathamara.

    Best of Luck for future movies.

  8. പ്രിയ ലാല്‍ ജോസ്,
    നീലത്താമര കണ്ടു. വളരെ നല്ല, മൃദുവായ ഒരു പാവം പടം.
    നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കും ടീമിനും എന്റെ അഭിനന്ദനങ്ങള്‍…
    വീണ്ടും ഇതുപോലെ നല്ലനല്ല പടങ്ങള്‍ പ്രതീക്ഷിക്കുന്നു.

    ചെറിയ ഒന്നുരണ്ടുകാര്യങ്ങള്‍ കൂടി പറഞ്ഞോട്ടെ,

    ഒന്ന്:
    വിദ്യാസാ‍ഗറിന്റെ പശ്ചാത്തല സംഗീതം പലസ്ഥലത്തും ഒരല്‍പ്പം പരിധിവിടുന്നു എന്ന് തോന്നിപ്പോയി. ഉദാഹരണത്തിന് കുഞ്ഞിമാളുവിന്റെ പെട്ടി തുറക്കുന്ന സീനില്‍.
    ജോണ്‍സന്റെ നനുത്ത സംഗീതമായിരുന്നു പടത്തിനു കുറച്ചുകൂടി യോജിക്കുക എന്നു പടം കണ്ടപ്പോള്‍ പലപ്പോഴും തോന്നി.

    രണ്ട്:
    ചിത്രത്തിന്റെ ആദ്യഭാഗത്ത് കഥാപാത്രങ്ങള്‍ സംസാരിക്കുന്നതിന് ഒരല്‍പ്പം വേഗത കുറവാണ്. മുത്തശ്ശി സ്ലോ ആയി സംസാരിക്കുന്നത് മനസ്സിലാക്കാം. അതിനനുസരിച്ച് ബാക്കിയുള്ളവരും (മുത്തശ്ശിയോട് സംസാരിക്കുമ്പോഴല്ല) സ്ലോ ആയി സംസാരിക്കുന്നത് ഒരല്‍പ്പം നാടകീയമായിത്തോന്നി.

    ഇതെല്ലാം എനിക്ക് മാത്രം തോന്നിയതാണൊ എന്നറീയില്ല. എങ്കിലും എന്റെ മനസ്സില്‍ തോന്നിയത് നിങ്ങളുമായി പങ്കുവച്ചു എന്ന് മാത്രം.

  9. Dear Lal,
    I am not sure whether you would read this or not. I have been an ardent admirer of you and your movies – mainly because of your picturisation skills, movies and songs — and ofcourse because of the fact that you are a director knows craft very well.

    My person opinion about this movie is as follows.

    Positives
    ———-
    1) Very good acting by the freshers except for a few cases. Hero and heroine had done a fabulous job.
    2) Great songs – especially “Anuraga Vilochananay”. Thanks to Sharat and Vidyasagar – as well as to Sreekumar, Shreya Ghosal, Karthik etc and the great picturisation.
    3) Great Location and shots
    4) A good movie out of an ordinary or not so strong story.

    Neutral
    ———
    1) Sreedevi Unni – okay acting – not so great.

    Negatives
    ————-
    1) Hopeless casting of Reema Kallingal. She never grows up to her character – mainly due to wrong casting as well as she was struggling to act.
    2) Over make up of Sreedevi Unni – normal make up was enough.

  10. Dear Lal Jose,

    My heartiest congratulations, for creating the blossom of ‘Neelathaamara’again. I am curiously waiting to watch the move and enjoy the real beauty of our village. The places you shoot is quite familiar to me and i always like to walk through those places. It should provide a refreshment to mind. I appreciate you for giving us wonderful songs and a nice cinema.
    Convey my cognates to all crew members specially Gokul & Nandan.
    Now Nandan becomes an actor too.

    Love,

    Shameer

  11. Dear Sir,
    Many Congratulations for ‘Neelathamara’.
    Although am away from Kerala, my parents saw the movie & they said they loved it. Cant wait to see it !
    I enjoyed the song ‘Anuraga Vilochananayi’. The visuals were very refreshing.
