CITY OF GOD

City of God

The filmmaker may say that the story of "City of God" has no resemblance to the original, a Brazilian film of the same name. But the making style is, undoubtedly, a carbon copy.

Apart from the stylization, there is absolutely nothing new in the screenplay. It only includes scenes that audiences are fed up of seeing in other films.

The story is about Jyotilal (Prithviraj Sukumaran) and his close aide who kill a businessman, whose wife, in turn, sends a gang to take revenge on the two. Meanwhile, Swarnavel (Indrajith Sukumaran) has an affair with Marathakam (Parvathi Menon), and Jyotilal’s aide is infatuated with Suryaprabha (Rima Kallingal).

This film is a major stepping stone in Parvathi Menon’s acting career. Rohini and Indrajit who have been given roles different from those of all their previous films, too, have utilized the opportunity to put up outstanding performances. Rima has done the best she can. Prithviraj has no scope in this film to showcase his acting skills. Of all the characters that he has selected to play to date, this is his worst, and all his fans are sure to be disappointed. 

Unlike the latest fighting trend in Malayalam films in which the fighters perform unimaginable somersaults and get thrown in the air, the fights in "City of God" are realistic and grounded. 

The lyrics and music of the song Nee Akaleyanu pulls at the heart strings. None of the other tracks are attractive. 

This is the first time that I’m seeing the chester movement (a repeat dance movement) being used in the Dapang Kuth (a popular Tamil rural form of music-dance, used in most Tamil films) in a Malayalam film. I also liked the manner in which Reema, in one of the numbers, bends her body backwards and freezes it for a few seconds at different levels from the ground.

Lijo Pellissery, whose debut, Nayakan, was a total bore from beginning to end, has copied another film’s technical style, feel, and treatment, to create a fast-paced murder-revenge-and-romance flick that has some excellent acting but a shallow story with no proper beginning or end.
