Review By : Thanseer M.A /Kerala9.com

I have high respect for Bobby Sanjay for writing one of the most thrilling Malayalam films I have ever seen – Traffic, while I don’t value their other works as much. For me Casanova is their movie. My expectation touched the sky.

The title sequence was awesome and then came the film…..

The first half was pathetic. I felt a mix of Red Chilies and Sagar alias Jacky. The movie got no heart and no memorable moments.

Direction

The director has brought all the expensive items in the world to give the film a luxurious look and the shots are fabulous. The director seems to be only interested in making this a fabulous ‘looking’ film. If this was a photo shoot all this were fine, but for a film, you need something called a story. No wonder why all producers have let this movie down. If Rrrrooossshhhhhan Andrews is given a great script he can make a good movie.

Story

I got this uneasy feeling when I saw that the story has participation from the director too. My premonition cam true, the film fall flat and later it went downward and crashed.

Writers repeat some elements in every work unknowingly. Some consider it a trademark while others consider it weakness. When watching this film I came across many similarities that I saw in other Aashirvaad films. Is Antony Perumbavoor a writer? (Popup blocked)

Mohanlal

Serious Lal fans will have great concern and they will be discussing among themselves about the way their star progresses.

Mohanlal hasn’t put any effort to become the character. He has acted with out the spark we saw in olden days. Apart from Chotta Mumbai, Bramaram and Pranayam which film has Lal put his earnest effort recently. The sycophantic attitude of technicians and fans are doing great harm to the actor. All his recent films are trying to use his fandom and market than his acting potential.

People promote Mohanlal out of sheer love. When you are promoting an actor even when he does something wrong, you are misguiding him. Has he created a new fan recently? His stardom though biggest is stagnant.

BGM by Gopi Sunder was fine.

Stunts and other publicity stunts

One stunt resembles an action sequence in Casino Royale (James Bond) while other action scenes were not as good.

Box office - Casanova may meet the fate of Mammootty’s Dubai.

Roshan Andrews need more h, more I and more t’s in his name to make a hit.

Verdict   Big. Beautiful. Boring

  4. prasanth says:

    if hindi dubbing with same storyline,i can bet the producers will have heavy loss.. malayalam only flop then in hindi,will create record as the most boring movie with big budget. producer will cry later..please roshan dont insult malayalis by dubbing this movie into hindi..

  5. prasanth says:

    IF STORYLINE STOCK IS FINISHED, START SEARCHING FROM NOVELS IN MAGAZINES ATLEAST ,INSTEAD OF BECOMING JOKER BY MAKING THESE TYPE OF ROTTEN MOVIES…

  6. prasanth says:

    I THINK MALAYALAM HAS GREAT DIRECTORS LIKE ROSHAN WITH CASANOVA AND MURALI NAGAVALLI WITH ALEXANDER THE GREAT..SHAME ON YOU MAN..
    ATLEAST SHOULD WAIT FOR TIME TO PASS AFTER THE ORGINAL VERSION IS RELEASED IN ENGLISH,HINDI OR TAMIL.

  7. prasanth says:

    I THINK ROSHAN WANTED TO SPEND MONEY,WHICH IS EARNED BY PREVIOUS FILM.ATLEAST PRODUCER SHUD HAVE SENSE TO THINK HIMSELF MONEY IS GETTING WASTED FOR A BORING FILM…. HOW MANY FILM STORY ARE COMBINED TO MAKE CASANOVA— LOVE SCENE FROM TAMIL FILM ENGEYUM KADAL,CHASING LIKE IN DOOM..ROSHAN PLEASE DONT BORE US BY COPYING LIKE THIS…

  8. Vinay s nair says:

    Nothing grt to tell about casinova pazhassiraja tells us the story of the past with a good storyline but with present lifestyle Casinova succed to give luxourious scenes but only just scenes doesn’t make a movie

  9. jaimon says:

    the movie is watchable but the story is very weak. seems Mohanlal not read the script well before acting…
    ooops..I havent seen the movie yet!!!

  11. SASHI says:

    THERE SHOULD BE SOME MEANING WHILE MAKING A MOVIE, SPENDING MONEY , AND SELECTING STORY WHICH IS SUITABLE FOR MALAYALAM AUDIENCE. THIS KIND OF MOVIE IS SUITABLE FOR BOLLYWOOD, TAMIL, WHO CAN SPEND MONEY. THE DIRECTORS AIM WAS TO MAKE A BIG BUDGET MOVIE AND SHINE LIKE SHANKAR FROM TAMIL. THE VERY WEAK STORY LINE PULLED DOWN THE CASANOVA, AND EVEN MOHANLAL IS NOT AT ALL SUITABLE FOR THIS CHARACTER. THE PRIME AIM FOR THIS MOVIE IS TO PROMOTE CONFIDENT GROUP FOR SELLING THEIR FLATS.

  12. Bipin says:

    Seriously bored me to the core … I have no personal grudges against Mohan Lal but i hate to see such a hopeless movie making great collection … it would be a sign to all in the wrong direction .. If we need better movies audience ought to be more choosy .. Just out of sheer love dont make a hopeless and down to standard movies a hit!!!

    we can see this locations and big luxury cars through internet,all we expect from a film (particularly from a malayalam film) is good story

  16. Shafees puthethu says:

    Casanova is not a good movie. But lalettan’s performance not bad.

  17. jimeesh says:

    hey moderator don’t think u can fool everybody by not posting my previous comments regarding the moie.if u don’t have the guts to show that message why r u using this review site u must be ready to face critisism just as u have trashed the movie and critisized it.it is not at all right to critiize others and when somebody critisize u ,turn your head away,very bad!!!!

  18. salih says:

    @vivek
    shivaji,endiran,..ee rand padangalum ettavum nalla direction and well done scripting anu…but in the case of CASANOA, after the intrmition ….boring script and sceens…

  19. jimeesh says:

    Mr thanseer,
    Stop this job as a reviewer and do something else.u r not fit as a reviewer.U r the same person u rated pazhassi raja as a movie lacking punch and that movie had got the national awrd for the bst malayalm film category and u also gave 4 stars to crap films like inn ghost house inn.This film may not be a good one but neither bad,so much hard work has gone onto its making,script was not good but it’s definitely an average film and a one time watch.it’s very easy to sit back and complain.Please guys don’t see this review,it’s not such a bad film as it;s being mentioned here,far better than craps like pokkiri raja and china town.

  20. Vivek vasu says:

    Ellarum shivaji, enthiran,kanthasami tudangiya poli tamil hindi movies kandu promote cheyumbol casanovaye mathram kuttam parayunnathu enthu kondanu… Ennum paadamum tengum kandu kondirunal mathiyo????

  21. Bill says:

    I havent watched the movie yet…lal should have read the script well before acting…the movie beautiful by v.k.prakash is a superb one, no exotic locations nothing…all we need is a good story with good direction…i think mohanlal is at his best when he acts out the emotions of a common man, which the audience like more….we need another padmarajan to bring back lalettan with suitable roles…
