CONMAN MONSON USED FAKE CARS AND GIFTED COUNTERFEIT WATCHES

Kerala : Conman and scammer Monson Mavungal reportedly owns none of the luxury cars that were found in his garage. The MVD department has found out that many cars have been modified to look expensive and the limousine he owned to lure his customers was a modified SUV. Monson also bought second-hand cars from Mumbai, one of them was owned by Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor.

A businessman who loaned Monson money by taking a gold loan was never returned his money, and when he asked, Monson parked a Mistubishi Pajero in his compound as a guarantee. Many investors and businessmen who were directly or indirectly involved with him have revealed that he was a people pleaser and gifted people exactly what attracted them to him. He gifted women gold and other jewellery whereas watches to men. However, it has been found out that every object he gifted them were counterfeit products that had no market value. Monson revealed he only has Rs. 200 left with him. Apparently, Monson used his possessions for display after borrowing finances from businessmen.

 

Actor Srinivasan was also seen in a picture with him, which he explains was taken when he approached the conman for treatment. Several celebrities including Mohanlal, Pearle Maaney, Tovino Thomas, Bala have been seen with him in photographs. It is assumed that he scammed most of the people who had investment potentials and those he could borrow loans from. CPI(M) has decided not to use Monson’s issue for political gains and not attack KPCC president K Sudhakaran. He was also seen with Monson in several pictures, which he explains was a relationship he had thinking Monson was an eye specialist.

 THINKALAZHCHA NISHCHAYAM | MALAYALAM CINEMA REVIEW |

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!

How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’.  There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title.  The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved.  Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax.  The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.

KURUP, THE MOVIE; DULQUER’S ATTEMPT TO CONQUER CINEMASCOPE FILMMAKING LEAVES AUDIENCES EMOTIONLESS

THIS PERIOD MOVIE COMES WITH COMPLETE GRANDEUR; GRAND SETS, STYLE, A GOOD CAST, LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN PRODUCTION, BUT FAILS IN ITS EDITING AND COMPOSITION. DQ DOES NOT BECOME KURUP, KURUP BECOMES DQ. 

Dulquer remains Dulquer, we recognize him and his methods in all his movies and he repeats himself once again.  The actor lacks gravitas in his dialogue delivery and intonation.  Can style and glamour make up for lack of method acting in a role like this?  Did we expect more?
