Parava Movie Review

Parava Movie Review

Parava has ‘everybody’s favs’ Dulquer Salmaan, Soubin Shahir and Anwer Rasheed, the man behind Usthad Hotel, Bangalore Days & Premam. You still want to read the review to try this film?!

Let’s go over the technical aspects. First and foremost, the acting is superb. From start to finish, young Shane Nigam, Arjun Ashokan, and Zinil, along with Dulquer Samaan appearing in an extended cameo role for almost 20+ minutes, deliver outstanding performances. The young actors convincingly convey the emotions portrayed on screen, making their performances exemplary and awesome.

Exceptional Performances and Directorial Brilliance

Secondly, the direction is amazing, complemented by brilliant camera work. Soubin’s adept handling of scenes, along with his understanding of the potential challenges to our attention spans, is evident. His use of settings and atmosphere draws the audience into the story. The film’s style is reminiscent of classic Brazilian/Spanish films, employing a mix of fast and slow camera movements, beautiful visuals that are authentic and realistic. Few films offer such an immersive experience, akin to Amir’s “Paruththiveeran.”

The visuals are as beautiful and realistic as that film. Another standout element is the excellently written script by Soubin and Muneer Ali. The events unfold naturally, without feeling forced or overly dramatized. Additionally, the soundtracks enhance the overall experience, with a sound mix that places the audience within the scene. “Parava” is masterfully executed.

Dulquer Salmaan’s Versatility and Impactful Role

Dulquer Salmaan is truly remarkable. This role is a departure from his previous ones, showcasing his versatility. It’s refreshing to see actors with significant box office appeal taking on movies like “Parava,” “Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum,” and “Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela,” allowing space for characters and other actors rather than solely focusing on the ‘star’ and ‘stardom.’ Dulquer Salmaan not only makes you fall in love with him and his character but also serves as a catalyst for the story’s emotions. He is on a journey filled with great movies.

Emotional Depth and Universality in Storytelling

“Parava” is devoid of gratuitous sex or violence, heavy action scenes, or CGI. It employs linear storytelling, simply narrating the story of a few people on Earth. The film is a breath of fresh air, addressing universal and identifiable issues—emotions. It encompasses a range of feelings, making the audience laugh and cry in a simple yet profound manner. The film explores friendship, love, loneliness, fear, grief, and regret, allowing viewers to deeply connect with the characters through a roller coaster of emotions. Without a doubt, this stands as one of the most charming movies in recent times.

I recommend this movie if you are seeking a story filled with heart and emotion, and if you want to experience the joy of discovering ‘love.’ It is a film for everyone, regardless of their stage in life.
