The Goodfellas of Mollywood
25 June 2017 | by rohanbabu98See all my reviews

Angamaly Diaries is a festival from the very start where we are introduced to a man called Kaadu (Forest) Benny a goon who eats snakes and takes a quotation from a gay man owning a accessory shop for ladies. The best part is that this character has no significance and exists only in this scene. This is just one of the many colorful characters in this beautiful, violent, badass movies. The quotation he takes is of our heroes and the introduction scene has the most enjoyable fight scene with the hero dressed as Jesus along with his friends dressed as other characters beating up people in a bar with the band version of a SPB song playing in the background.

Angamaly Diaries is about the Palliyangadi team, a group of people in Angamaly doing small businesses, getting into fights and enjoying their lives. Similar to Ray Liotta's character in goodfellas there is Vincent Pepe, a boy fascinated with a gang, and the movie goes on to how he forms this ragtag Palliyangadi team with his friends. The movie focuses on how his life takes a turn after he gets himself into a pork business where a problem happens.

More than the script, the movie works because of how unconventional the setting is where we meet characters with monikers Appani, Pork, 10ml, U- Clamp out of many. None of the fight scenes have any mass associated with it, on the other hand these are fight scenes where the hero comes out more hurt if anything. The actors especially Sarath Kumar and Tito Johnson as Ravi and Rajan are delightful in their absolutely local, gritty avatars. The Pallingayadi team itself is an eclectic mix of people with Pork Varkey , 2 Martys and a Bheeman.

Overall, Angamaly Diaries is that movie where you would enjoy every scene for the fast cinematography, realistic acting and the most energy filled fights which after seeing you feel like breaking the bones of every person you see.
