#AngamalyDiaries Another raw & realistic film frm Lijo who turns his camera towards few young localites dis time.Decent yet entertains. The newbies have done a superb job with great confidence.Can say an entertaining version of Rajiv Ravi school of filmmaking. Technical team of the movie needs a special mention especially who has come out with an inspiring work,both in terms of songs and bgm. Still one can't escape from te fact that expectations from Lijo is bit more than wat he has presented.Writing could hav been sharper. Mainly targeted at youth, this could strike a chord with all those serious film lovers. One more thing- The 11 mins long climax shot is one of the best moments from the entire movie Verdict: Decent
As time goes, new ways of filmmaking evolves. With "Angamaly diaries" one more way of filmmaking has emerged!
variety movie...natural performances...Lijo Jose oru sambavam thanne...camera work and all outstanding... #angamalydiaries
