Premam: A Masterpiece

Director: Alphonse Puthren
Cast: Nivin Pauly, Sai Pallavi, Anupama Parameshwaran
Year: 2015

I know, I know. This review is a little too late, considering the movie was released well over a year ago, and it has already been reviewed, parodied, and talked about to death. But I absolutely LOVED this movie, and have been meaning to write about it for quite a while. My current schedule forced me to push this blog to the bottom of my priority list. Hence the long delay.

I will undoubtedly be criticized by many for daring to call a recently released movie by a relatively new filmmaker "a masterpiece". But that's precisely what I believe this movie to be.

A google search yielded the following definition of "masterpiece": a work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship.
