Varshangalkku SheshamΒ  is aΒ  Malayalam-language period film written and directed by Vineeth Sreenivasan. It was produced and distributed by Visakh Subramaniam of Merryland Cinemas. The film stars Pranav Mohanlal, Dhyan Sreenivasan, Kalyani Priyadarshan .The film’s original songs and background score were composed by debutant Amrit Ramnath.

Dhyan Sreenivasan and Pranav Mohanlal are undoubtedly the main attractions of the film. Their bond is the backbone of the plot, and they mesmerise with their career-best performances. The film gels nicely amidst the huge star cast and is especially good during the emotional scenes. Nivin Pauly is the other main attraction and gets a cameo role. His mannerisms and attitude suit his character well, and he does a brilliant job. Neeta Pillai and Kalyani Priyadarshan are good in their respective roles. But Kalyani had limited screen space.

The first half of the film is good, has some very good moments, and largely works because of the lead duo. As in every Vineeth Srinivasan film, the story takes a severe beating, and the same happens with Varshangalkku Shesham too. The proceedings are quite predictable right from the word go and do not have many twists or turns.

The pace of the film is a bit slow, and the regular mass audience will find it quite hard without the basic fan moments. After a very interesting first half, the proceedings during the second half take a slight beating. The film becomes a travel movie and wanders places, and director Vineeth Sreenivasam uses old-school emotional drama narration. Even though the plot is okay, the way it has been conceived lacks conviction in many places. Also, Pranav’s character lacks clarity. The way he is introduced into the plot and coming at regular intervals, the scenario is not convincing.

Amrit Ramnath’s music is good, and all the songs have been shot well, too. Major credit should go to Viswajith for his breath-taking camera work. If not for his visuals, the first half of the film would not have turned out the way it did. Every scene is so nicely lit up, and especially the outdoor locations have been showcased in a superb way.

Coming to the director, Vineeth Sreenivasan, his screenplay is quite simple, but it is his dialogue that is simple and clean. Had he worked out more in the writing department and added some better emotional drama instead of too much travel, the outcome would have been even better. The proceedings are as tedious as some of our never-ending TV serials. Vineeth has stressed the focus on Dhyan, and Pranav then immediately shifts the focus to lecturing about cinema. It’s ok, but it’s fine if it is told interestingly.

All in all, it tests patience with its idiotic scenes and out-dated, repetitive situations. If not for Nivin Pauly’s presence in the second half, the film collapses completely.


An old-school cringe emotional drama, dragged a lot..
