Neelakasham Pachakkadal Chuvanna Bhoomi (Blue Sky Green Sea Reddish Earth) is a highly stagnant Malayalam journey movie that I’ve seen for the very first time! I had an intention before watching the movie from its official teaser and theme song that it’ll be a pure copy-paste version of Che’s Motorcycle Diaries which has got a few notable similarities in one or the other way. Sameer Thahir, the director whose last 2 movies, Chappa Kurishu and Isha in 5 Sundarikal, were the copied versions of other language movies though. But, by the running of the movie on the screen itself had proved that my prediction was wrong. It displays the story of Kasim and his journey from Southern India to Nagaland along with his closest friend Suni on their Royal Enfield Bullets for seeking Kasim’s lost love.
Sameer Thahir as a director hadn’t ever put any sturdy impact on me through his movies before, but there is a slight contrast with that for this time anyway. Yeah! I really did like the way of presentation he has adopted for this beautifully portrayed movie. Perhaps, like Lijo Jose Pellissery, we’re lucky only by now to recognize and accept Sameer Thahir’s creativity and style at least by his 3rd movie. The visuals emerging out from the projector to the theatre screen has provided a deep-lively-refreshing effects on viewers and it can be noted as one among the major internal factor behind the spectacular glory of Neelakasham (blue sky) during this festival season. The rising super stars, Dulquar Salman-Sunny Wayne team once again did such a great job through the 2 characters (Kasim and Suni) in the movie. Their combination sequences really worked well and they were all packed perfectly with quality at its peak; especially their riding sequences. The other major roles in the movie did by the Manippuri actress Surja Bala (Assi), Aena Saha, Bengali actor Drithiman Chatterjee, Joy Mathew and others performance were also appreciable ones.
The script, dialogues, BG score and music suits only with the storyline of the movie; hence it can’t be considered as worth ones. All in all, this is a 100% enjoyable flick comes under the genre of journeys through the different parts of our nation and true love. If you’re willing to watch a 2 and half hour movie with very innovative making and visuals, don’t wait for another turn! Neelakasham Pachakkadal Chuvanna Bhoomi is waiting for you in the theatres near by you.
A single thought which has truly inspired my heart from the movie:
“എന്റെ വിധി, എന്റെ തീരുമാനങ്ങള് ആണ്”
“My destiny is my decisions”
