Ente Mezhuthiri Athazhangal
Anoop Menon, Miya George
In director Sooraj Thomas’ Ente Mezhuthiri Athazhangal (My candle light dinners), Anoop Menon plays a chef, who revisits a romantic episode in his life.
Sanjay Paul (Anoop Menon) runs a restaurant chain named ‘The Gastronomy’, where a chicken dish called ‘Amore Mio’ (meaning ‘My Love’ in Italian) is served. It’s a magical dish that enhances a person’s lust and there are many who comes there even from abroad, just to have a plate and of course, get that feel.
When the story begins, Sanjay is all set to marry a girl named Tara. The actual story unveils as a flashback, when Sanjay meets Anjali (Miya George), where he is staying with a family friend in their beautiful bungalow in Ootty.
Anjali is a paying guest there, running a shop named ‘Ti Amo’ (Italian for ‘I Love You’) nearby, where she designs candles. A beautiful setting for romance, did you say? Not really. Anjali finds Sanjay unattractive as he is fat and hairy.
The rest of the story is about their interactions, in the trademark Anoop Menon style. With some nice moments, picturesque frames and well written lines, this is quite an engaging movie, if you have the patience and the heart for a romantic tale.
But what comes in the way is the overindulgence of the makers that makes it way too long with a few sub plots and some cliched scenes that makes the ride bumpy.
Anoop Menon, who has written and ‘designed’ the movie, is in good form. Miya George looks really beautiful and has performed very well.
Saakshyam: A routine action drama confused with fantasy | Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 review: Convoluted and trite | Mission Impossible - Fallout review: Outshines the previous editions | Junga review: Has a few funny moments | Mohini review: Biggest attraction in the film is Trisha
Ente Mezhuthiri Athazhangal has been presented like a delicious dish with many flavours served in style. Whether it is enjoyable for you mainly depends on your taste buds and the state of mind. Hungry for a romantic story? Give this one a try.

‘എന്റെ മെഴുതിരി അത്താഴങ്ങള്’ was an enjoyable romantic flick. A better cinematography and most importantly’ better art department could have taken this movie a level above.
