Arabikatha - Mallu Movie

Arabikatha’ is the story of Cuba Mukundan (Sreenivasan) a staunch impractical communist who knows nothing but hartals and strikes, After being cheated by fellow Commies he is forced to go to Dubai like all Mallus to make money & repay the loan, where he meets a Chinese chic falls in love with her as like all Commies who love China and Cuba.

And yes he is further cheated in Dubai big time by fellow mallus, so true its mallus who fuck mallus :)..
The movie is like a slap to millions of Mallus and some Bongs who still live in the Communist Ideology and will not adapt to any changes that have happened in the World and the communist Movement at large.
Communism was a decent movement during the 60's the era of zamindari system and food shortage, I don't think it has any place today..even Russia and China have turned big time capitalists.
Communism might be wiped of the map of the world but am sure it will still be there in India.. i.e Bengal and Kerala.
Lal Salam :)

Srinivasan has done an excellent job, the man rocks even minus his comedy acts, Lal Jose deserves credit for this excellent movie.
Ratings : 4/5
p.s This movie was released in 2007, I managed watch it yesterday, So it can be a bit of baasi news for many :)

On a tangent note... One is Srinivasan another is Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Al Salim of Kuwait, Mallu connexion ??
