Another typical Amal Neerad film to watch in theater and it is a good one.

Iyyobinte Pusthakam -

Amal Neerad's latest movie is filled with stunning visuals , good music and satisfying performances from the actors.The above said factors when combined with typical Amal Neerad direction style makes the film as a whole a good movie to watch in theater.

The main story happens at munnar in 1940's.The first twenty minutes tells us Who is Iyyob and how he transformed from a slave of British to a master of munnar's forestlands.He has three sons.The story is all about Iyyob and his sons.The characters has got enough depth.The credit goes to the script writers.Communism and Nazism has been nicely blended in to the film.

About the performances , everyone did their job well .Lal comes as Iyyob & fahadh as one of his sons .Chemban vinodh ( ' sapthamasree ' fame ) and Jinu Joseph (a permanent cast of Amal Neerad movies ) played the roles of his other two sons .Fahad's new getup received huge applauds in the theater. I think Amal Neerad's magical power is that he can convert any worst actors into good ones as the flaws in their acting will be hidden nicely by Amal by his amazing cinematograhy and with the help of his editors and music directors.I think heroine Isha Sharwaani escaped just like that.

Direction has the signature of Amal Neerad in it.Cinematography wasn't above average, it was absolutely top notch .Amal caught the beauty of munnar's forests in his frames Hats off for the duo of music directors Neha & Yakzan.Editing was perfect.Songs were damn good

This book is a visual treat.So i wouldn't mind recommending you to give it a shot.Make sure you watch in theater itself.This may be Amal's best work till date ( excluding the short film ' kullante Bhaarya ' ) but considering the talent and the knowledge in world films he has ,Amal Neerad's best is yet to come.

My rating: 3.5/5

Eyobinte Pusthakam(Book of Eyob)

Photography is wonderful, but the technical side should be keener about the time, belonging, language, vehicle tyres, (Calendar Dates are in times new roman font etc...any way Just like a fantasy…fairy tale it touch the heart …rivalry, for power and money is old theme but you people make it superb…. Sameera Saneeh deserve a special congrats for Costume



A must watch for its outstanding cinematography

Iyobinta pusthakam makes an awesome movie based on its camera and cinematography. The casting and action are totally out of mollywood or even bollywood. It is a visual treat and a thriller of a film.
The film has a fairly good script and screenplay.
verdict: do watch!
