Sweet, feel-good, and yet intense – these words describe one of Malayalam cinema’s most successful films recent times – Bangalore days. Directed by Anjali Menon, this film received a positive response from audience and critics alike; so much so that it went on to become one of the highest-grossing films in Malayalam cinema. This film is also credited for breaking stereotypes. It broke the notion that only a male filmmaker can succeed in cinema.
The film worked on two key factors – a new-gen cast, along with a fresh story. The plot of the film revolved around three cousins who rediscover their lives in the busy city of Bangalore. Nazriya, Nivin Pauly and Dulquer Salmaan brought life to this film, with their terrific performances that made their characters seem real. The film is also aimed at highlighting three parallel stories of its main characters, and merging it perfectly well. The film then, turned out to reach several other states of the nation, and gained appreciation from the youth. This film turned out to become a classic. The astounding success of the film has paved way for the remake of the film.
