Critics Review


A Poem Of Love

Anjali Menon presents her scene as a poem drenched in nostalgia. Like the title sequence in the film where we see rain filled vessels, rain drops in flowers, kids running with an umbrella, train entering a dark cave.. she sketches her film that takes you back to a time that's deep within your heart now. And from tears to words, a scream to silence.. everything hits you. I wish there are filmmakers like her here.. who can write a character of a dog like a human we know for a while.. who can make such little films with so much of soul in it.(more)

A Good Film That Could Have Been A Great One

Koode (adapted from Sachin Kundalkar's 2014 Marathi film, Happy Journey) is Joshua's story: of a man who suffers from a (somewhat justifiable) martyr's complex, having hoisted himself on the cross, since his teens, in order to become his family's Saviour.(more)



Anjali Menon weaves Prithviraj-Parvathy's brilliance, Nazriya's charm into a mystical experience

I might have preferred it if the concluding scenes involving Joshua and Sophie's stories had completely abjured social conventions or been left to the imagination, but that is a marginal quibble in a film that is, in its entirety, a near spiritual experience. Anjali Menon's Koode is a sharply observant, occasionally humorous, emotionally stirring piece of cinema.(more)

Prithviraj, Parvathy and Nazriya Nazim shine in this moving film

Nazriya brings her own element to Jenny, which is otherwise a stock character in such films. Jenny is full of life and a chatterbox that we have grown used to in movies that teach us how to live our lives. Nazriya has delivered a heartening performance, which is the right mix of cute and charm. Especially in a scene where she has her first fight with her brother, Joshua.(more)

Prithviraj, Nazriya's film is a heart wrenching poem in motion

Sometimes, the film tells you, all you need is a human being who truly cares for you. But to find yourself, you always need to look beyond obligation and shackles. There, at the horizon, lies true freedom.(more)
