There’s always a special anticipation that comes with director Vineeth Sreenivasan’s films, mostly because the actor-filmmaker is yet to taste failure at the box office and is known for completing getting “the pulse of the Malayali audience”. But even his die-hard fans are curious about what his latest release Varshangalkku Shesham entails – as the trailer and teaser promised a movie that’s different from anything he has done so far.

The period drama, which hit theatres on April 11, has all of Vineeth’s friends and previous collaborators, in front and behind the camera, including actors Pranav Mohanlal, Dhyan Sreenivasan, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Nivin Pauly, Basil Joseph, Shaan Rahman, Neeraj Madhav and Aju Varghese. With the movie’s first shows beginning as early as 8am in certain centres Kerala, here’s what the FDFS reviews of the film say. Is it another Rs 100 crore loading in Malayalam cinema? Find out:

The USP of all Vineeth's movies is that it would appeal to audiences of all age groups and in that respect, Varshangalkku Shesham delivers. The movie, which is an emotional drama, has managed to connect with the audience, especially through the poignant moments that its protagonists go through. While some found the first half a bit too dramatic, the second half more than made up for it, according to the audience's response on X (formerly Twitter). 

Does it have Pranav Mohanlal and Dhyan Sreenivasan’s best performances so far?

The story, especially the first half, is driven by Pranav and Dhyan's characters. Though the setup takes time and the actors' performances are decent, it's the second half, which benefits from a string of cameos, that gives wings to the film. Dhyan, Pranav, Basil and Aju get to flex their acting muscles through the movie, which is ably aided with Amrit Ramnath's music.

What’s best about Varshangalkku Shesham?

One of the highlights of Varshangalkku Shesham is Nivin Pauly's character, as per reports. Fans of the Premam actor are already hailing his comeback and it's all the more special that it's through a film of Vineeth, who also helmed his debut film Malarvadi Arts Club, gave him his big break in Thattathin Marayathu and also directed him in Jacobinte Swargarajyam. 

Right from the name of Nivin's character in the film to his monologue, received a lot of praise from the viewers on Twitter and apparently was also cheered in the theatres the most.

The placement of Nyabagam song also elevated the film, according to the viewers. Vineeth, himself, had posted a few days ago that the song was created with such pure intent by its composer Amrit. 

What are Varshangalkku Shesham’s negatives?

Not everyone was impressed with the script and pacing of the film, which is about 2 hours and 45 mins long. That the first half was heavy in drama also seemed to have affected the viewing experience of those who might have turned up in theatres hoping for the same experience as Vineeth's previous films. The second half, however, does make up for this. 

Varshangalkku Shesham set for a landmark box office run?

While the Dhyan and Pranav-starrer did have a wide release, it will face stiff competition from Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Aadujeevitham, which is still running in a lot of theatres as well as Fahadh Faasil’s Aavesham. Jai Ganesh, which has the lowest theatre count among the four films, is also locked in a four-way race at the box office this Eid and Vishu season.
