Aanandam online movie review - Such an Aesthetic Film Experience. :) :)
Aanandam is a 2016 Indian Malayalam film written and directed by Ganesh Raj in his directorial debut. Vineeth Sreenivasan produces the film under the banner of Habit Of Life with Vinod Shornur under Cast N Crew.
The film features Vishak Nair, Anu Antony, Thomas Mathew, Arun Kurian, Siddhi Mahajankatti, Roshan Mathew, and Anarkali Marikar in the lead roles. Cinematography is handled by Anend C. Chandran and music by Sachin Warrier. Abhinav Sunder Nayak has done the editing and LJ Films distributed the film. Now let's go to the review. 'Aanandam' is such a beautiful, well written aesthetic cinema tale which tells us the story of a bunch of Engineering students and their adventures. The film mostly focuses on the IV(Industrial Visit) done by the students and the little events during the tour. Most of main cast are newbies, even though they have managed to act very effectively and quite appreciable for their signature roles. Vineeth Sreenivasan, the producer, is also acclaimed for introducing new faces to the Malayalam Film Industry like Nivin Pauly, Aju Varghese etc. Now he lets his long-time assistant director Ganesh Raj to the mainstream, while he takes the chair of a producer. The cinematographer Anend C. Chandran has made yet an other milestone in his career using the extraordinary frames of Aanandam. Anend is widely noted for his skills in the blockbuster film Premam(2015). Sachin Warrier, an other talent introduced by Vineeth as a singer through his own film, becomes the music director of Aanandam, who creates a refreshing and elegant tune and music for the mood of the film. Overall, most of technicians behind the curtain have done decent jobs to mold the film 'Aanandam'. Though he is a new face in 'director's chair', Ganesh Raj has marked his own signature to the film by uniting each every threads together. "Aanandam" in Malayalam language means 'Euphoria' and the director and his crew has done a good and decent job to bring it out from the viewers. It's true that this review cannot bring any excitement that I've experienced throughout the film. You can only feel the 'aanandam' while watching this beautiful picture.
