A Wo(Men) Centric Road Trip Drama

A movie that says, not preaches, �live life for yourself as much as you live for others.� (more)

Magalir Mattum is a celebratory journey of womanhood!

The film's writing is very much confined, focussed and strong, and that is when you remember that this film is written and directed by Bramma, who gave us an impactful Kuttram Kadithal.

This Jyothika film is message-heavy yet heartwarming

Magalir Mattum isn't a bad film. It's a much needed departure from hero-worshiping and it couldn't have come at a better time.

Worth watching for Saranya, Banupriya and Urvashi and some genuinely touching emotional scenes.

The director's idea of liberating the middle aged women is by getting them drunk, prancing around in a village costume where anyone can hug anyone and a tiring long jeep ride with nothing much happening. Banupriya's Hindi speaking family background is as unconvincing as the character arc of her son...(more)

Women to the fore

The men in the film, though, get a raw deal. Nasser is portrayed as insensitive ("keep women where they have to be," he says) while Pavel's change-of-heart in the end seems to be more like a consolation prize. The filmmaker does try balancing them with a few good men, but Magalir Mattum always posit...(more)
