Anarkali - Movie is powered by great performances & stunning visuals, as the movie makes a very strong impact throughout its run. â€ª#â€ŽAnarkaliâ€¬ hasâ€ª#â€ŽPrithvirajâ€¬ doing an amazing job again, & â€ª#â€ŽBijuMenonâ€¬ steals the show with his unparalleled comic timing. It is a romantic love story with effective elements of humour & also provides a powerful emotional side. The three female characters are very well-portrayed, & the movie can boast of bringing the â€ª#â€Žtrueloveâ€¬ elements back to contemporary resplendence. As sea becomes the metaphor for separation, the ideas of waiting & sacrifice gets full commendation.
â€ª#â€ŽAnarkaliâ€¬ another eternal love saga from Prithviraj Sukumaran Priyal Gor's â€ª#â€ŽNadiraâ€¬ stole my heart. Dear Expecting more malayalam movies from you... Bijumenon steal the show, after â€ª#â€Žvellimoongaâ€¬ â€ª#â€ŽBijumenonâ€¬'s remarkable charector in this film. Comedy scenes are really worked well.Miya George jus awesome, very happy to see this propensities malayalam top heroines doing supporting charectors. I'm very happy about that. There is no loopholes to criticize this movie. Well written script, Each and every scenes we enjoyed alot, thanks â€ª#â€Žsachiâ€¬ gave us a wonderful fun filled extravaganza... Rajeev Nair you can be proud as a producer of this movie...

#Anarkali review - Cinematography handled with rich frames & explored Lakshadeep to another level. Sujith Vasudev done his best. Vidyasagar at his best & proved again as melody king. Music blends with the soul of the movie. Sachy,one of the well known script writer made his debut as director & marks hit. 3.5/5

Watched Anarkali - Movie ..Awesome movie .. With kiduzzz visuals .. Brilliant direction .. Hattrck for rajuvettan ..
Anarkali is a beautiful heart whelming love story with breathtaking visuals - yet again - from Sujith Vassudev. Watch this for many reasons, one of the prime being Suresh Krishna's career best performance. Priyal Gor is so beautiful and charming that she will surely be a sensation after Isha Talwar with the thattam. (I just realized that she did the role of Isha in the Telugu remake of Thattathin Marayath.) Biju Menon, what a star you are! What an actor you are! Shanthanu was not at all challenging for Prithviraj's caliber. Kabir Bedi, Sudev Nair, Miya George and Samskruthy Shenoy eased into their characters. Major Ravi's final dialogue is worth a mention.
Being a musical film, the director could have turned to any of the new music directors but he chose the kind of melodies, Vidyasagar, who set the tune and tone for the film with beautiful - absolutely beautiful - songs and Background score.
I don't mind going for Anarkali one more time for the story, for Suresh Krishna, for the songs and for the visuals.

Anarkali(2.5.5/5):Everything was fine till the interval.Smart writing,Matured direction,Good one liners and yes impressive perfomances..But the second half couldn't create the emotional qyotionts towards the charectors and ended up with all the cliches that have been following by ths genre..Same DDLJ kind of father charector realisations and let his daughter to live with her loved one decision climax scene too was predctlble and 1000 repeated cliche ..
Nb:It may be a prithviraj starrer but for me the performer was biju menon..last 15 min comedy scene were brilliantly performed by the actor..timing was excellent...Overall a watchble stuff
