Review on Joseph
The movie has suspense, emotions and mysteries. The scriptwriter Shahi Kabeer has to be appreciated for giving Malayalam cinema an interesting tale with a serious message on the crime racket prevalent in our society.
Review on Joseph
Joju George displays his versatility in a role which demands a range of emotions from him. It is about time the industry made use of him in a variety of roles, beyond the humourous ones that he usually gets. Joseph is a rewarding character study, marking Padmakumar’s return to form.

Review on Porinju Mariam Jose
The Time of India A good cast giving us a reasonably good performance, and a hitmaker, Porinju Mariyam Jose gets tad bit predictable. But one may watch it for the spectacle at offer by the narrative genius and the unrequited love story in the sidelines.
