    Dear All,
    Happy to share about the movies watched this week.
    Felt to share you with you to spared the "Good Feeling" I got.
    Watched <HashTag>HOME - Malayalam: A Feel good movie. This movie, in my opinion, has no story, but a strong, believe me, very strong, message to us.

    How to take care of elder people? - Four generations gents with four emotions- Grandfather (must be 70+), Father (must be 50+), Son (must be 25+), and the young boy (must be 15+) - Health issues, Anxiety, Depression, Eagerness.

    How to take care of household works?
    How do concentrate on a career instead of spending time on a mobile phone?
    How to use a mobile phone to convey a message?
    How to use a letter to communicate a heartfelt message...
    How to be grateful/with gratitude?
    How to be generous with emotionally behaved people?
    How to react when someone praising at you without knowing your present?

    I could not type more.. please watch if you have not. Please comment if you already watched and liked the movie.

    I watched the movie. I liked parts of the movie and all the artists acting. But there were quite a few disturbing things about the movie. Why should a father do extra ordinary things to be loved and respected is beyond me. I also didn't like the way the girl friend was treated. It's one thing that the hero ill treats his dad and girl friend but its a whole different thing if it is justified. That's what the film did. It just blamed it all on the hero's stressful job. Also the usage of mobile part was not elaborated. The hero gets stressed seeing his counterparts updates in social media doesn't have to be just from mobile. He gets affected even seeing them in person like the scene where he meets his director friend while going for story discussion with an actor. Its the hero's mindset which is the problem not the mobile. Indrans acting was excellent. Made my eyes moist. Wanted to get inside the screen and give a big bear hug. He is so natural. The lady who acted as his wife also did her part well.

    Indeed a very good movie. The stess faced by the hero to keep up with his previously achieved success has been enacted well. Hero's life , struggles, behaviour and working style shown as very messy and stressful just like the lives of many of us. All the other 3 generations (men) and also the heros mother are composed in their behaviour n life , no matter how hard their inner struggle is.

    Wish every homes problems have an happy ending like it happened in the movi

    I didn't feel like to wait for Sunday therefore I watched the movie last night. I liked the movie and especially Oliver''s (Indrans) superb performance. Sometimes Oliver's innocence made me smile and some scenes of him gave me tears. Oliver's struggles to chase the mysteries of smart phone/social media reminded my son's wrote down Notes on how to use IPad and smart phone to his grand father.
    I can bear the character of Oliver's younger son and some scenes were amusing. I didn't like the character of Anthony (Indran's elder son) and lack of his courtesy/respect to his dad. Whatever the reasons, Showing his frustration on his girl friend and dad wasn't acceptable. Definetly a feel good movie and liked the twist of the movie which related to Oliver's flashback.

    Yes, I too became fan of good Malayalam movies even though I depend on subtitles to understand dialogues completely. Frankly, I can't find such interesting movies in Telugu.

    I watched it in the weekend thanks to this thread. As I was watching the kitchen and dining table scenes of a Mallu household, I felt relief that memories of The Great Indian Kitchen are getting replaced with more pleasant ones. : )

    All the main cast did well. Indrans - Oliver Twist, Manju Pillai - Kuttiyama, Sreenath Bhasi (Antony the older son). Not to forget the handsome psychologist Vijay Babu.

    Story is interesting without having too many sub-plots. I was expecting that after Oliver gets a smartphone, he will become an Instagram star and Vishal the actor will insist on working in a story written by him. : )

    The fish in the aquarium also had a sizeable screen time in the movie. : )

    My only quibble with the movie is its length at 2 hrs 44 mins. That is just me though.

    Some time back, I have watched malayalam movies with the subtitles. Now I feel connected to the movie without subtitles. I always liked the accent of the language. I understand around 60 to 70% word by word, because I know Tamil. Malayalam and Bengali are the 2 movie industries in India which take movies with reality touch in most of the movies.

    Oh! I have watched 3 to 4 malayali movies until now. Yes, I observed that some of malayali words were close to Tamil.
