PARAVA Movie Review

Director: Soubin Shahir
Producer: Anwar Rasheed, Shyju Unni
Written By: Soubin Shahir, Muneer Ali
Music: Rex Vijayan
Cast: Dulquer Salmaan, Shane Nigam, Govind Pai, Amal Sha, Srinda Arhaan


The movie Parava revolves around the lives of two teenage boys Ichappi and Haseeb, and their preparations for the pigeon(parava) race popular in Mattancherry, Kochi.

Critical Reception:

The movie received positive reviews from critics especially praising Dulquer’s performance as a local Mattanchery boy.  It shows flavors of Mattanchery local culture and its people mannerisms, that has never seen through celluloid. In his debut movie, Soubin has hit the bull’s eye, and I didn’t felt it was his debut movie, that much he has directed the movie professionally.The supporting cast did a brilliant job in portraying their roles.

Last but not least, the teens (Amal Sha & Govind Pai) did a pretty nice job. The cinematography in the movie has to be given a good mention. It captured the beauty of the local city at its best. Overall, a Feel Good Entertainer that soothes our hearts.
