Lijo Jose Pellisery’s Ee Ma Yau
‘Death is the most beautiful ceremony in one’s life’
The above line holds the content of the film from the word go
The film is revolving around the death of Vavachan mesthiri( Kainagiri Thankaraj) and how his son(Chemban Vinod) complete the cremation and rituals forms the crux of the story
Chemban Vinod aced the role of EC and Member Ayyappan played by Vinayakan as usual stole the show with his intense expressions and dialogue delivery.
Each & everyone in the movie was outstanding to the core
Second half of the film will disturb you for sometime even after you leave the theatre and especially the last 15 mins is a revelation
Shyju Khalid deserves a special mention for his excellent DOP & Prashant Pillai’s BGM is top notch
On the flip side,this movie is not everyone’s cup of tea
Non-Multiplex audience may find some issues of darkness in the screen
Ee Ma Yau is a masterclass from Lijo Jose Pellisery & an instant classic.
