Kumbalangi Nights is such a aesthetic movie; the simplicity, the realness feel,the genuineness of the characters, they are flawed, so real and relatable, the cinematography, the score, the highlight of the film would be Soubin Shabir and Fahad Fazil, the acting performance by them was a tapestry in perfection, the vibe of the entire movie give me chills and made me leave the theater with a smile.

While this journey was enjoyable, towards the end, was wondering if the movie would end on one of those banks.

You will walkout smiling when you leave the theater.

With the mix of local culture ,dialects and progressive thoughts this compelling directorial debut film is a must must watch for all movie lovers.

Madhu Narayanan's Kumbalangi Nights is a visual treat about relationships (basically about what makes a home a home) carved masterfully using an eclectic mix of soothing, romantic music; outstanding cast performance; and overall perceptible storytelling that will tug at your heartstrings to a point where you will be unable to emote any feeling other than joy and which will come out of your body through occasional smiles (and chuckles) even as you marvel at this subtle piece of art that just falls short of being called a masterpiece because of its formulaic approach and the use of some ordinary Malayalam new-wave elements.

Very very worst movie .

This is exactly how you tell an engaging story even when the plot is ridiculously simple.

Available light photography used during the night scenes are enjoyable.

It's a well narrated script by Syam Pushkaran and well appreciable direction by Madhu with stunning performances from the lead actors Soubin , Fahad and the rest.

Kudos to the director for doing an amazing job of engaging the audience, introducing a brilliant casting , and making the audience experience the reality.

8 on 10 for this enjoyable experience .

The portrayal and deconstruction of traditional masculinity and the ending which went on an unexpected direction and shows what is the true inner self of such people who have been portrayed as heroes for decades in Malayalam cinema.

The movie itself is a coming of age drama focussing on the four children of Napoleon and his wife.

Enjoyed it a lot!

It's mind boggling how versatile he is.

Fahadh Faasil's performance is unexpected new and astonishing.

You will leave the theater with a broad smile .

Mind blowing acting by Fahad, Shane and Soubin.

Mind blowing acting by Fahad, Soubin and Shane.

Shyam Pushkaran weaves a very intense tale that makes you laugh outwardly whilst crying within.

The strong point of script is all the character's emotions are well connected to their past and secondly the movie is really funny and unpredictable at times.

Waste of money.

His ability to change into such mind blowing characters is so brilliant.
