M J Radhakrishnan's cinematography is realistic and Dr Biju's script is unbelievably close to the truth: We can't distinguish between cinema and real life while watching this one. Santhosh Chandran's music is also blended with the emotional depth of the film.

Valiya Chirakulla Pakshikal is a must-watch film before you die. You are watching this for a cause as well. To support this will be one of the greatest thing you do in your life as the more support it gets will throw light to the plight of the victims there and the more light which gets to them will lead many to them with care and help.

What makes Dr. Biju's narration humane is the way he treat his characters. They turned up as not mere victims of continues spraying of Endosulfan, a highly toxic pesticide produced serious ill effects to the health. The movie treats them empathetically as human beings struggling with their fate and irresponsibility of the system.

The movie maintains high standards in editing, sound design and other technical aspects. Valiya Chirakulla Pakshikal is for those who wants a classy and hauntings cinematic experience this weekend.


The film has a style of documentation of events and it flits between past and present and portrays the shades of life of a suffering population in three different seasons.

Dr.Biju's artistic sensibilities flap their giant wings and shakes us from our collective slumber in the cushy oblivion of selfish living.It is an exhortation to be humane and be aware about what our brethren in the not so distant Kasargod are facing. It is a seriously praiseworthy cinematic venture which leaves indelible images in the mind which can be ignored only by the incurably selfish.
