India's Best Movie of the Week

While 8 of the 9 Telugu releases went without a trace, Kousalya Krishnamurthy received a generally positive response. Bengali film Gotro also received positive reviews and is expected to play well with the target audience. Malayalam film Porinju Mariyam Jose created a lot of expectation among the audience before the release but it received a mixed response and is commented upon as it's not up to the standards set by the veteran director. 

Gotro revolves around an educated and aristocrat elderly woman Mukti Debi living alone with a maid in a mansion in Kolkata. She is a devotee of Lord Krishna and her son lives abroad. A builder has an eye on her house but she outright rejects him.  For her safety and help, her son appoints a caretaker, Tareq Ali. Uneducated and uncouth he often annoys the Mukti Debin. But, soon they soon develop a bond. The film talks about humanity above religion.

Kausalya Krishnamurthy tells the story of a rural girl from a farming family and her struggle to become an international cricketer to make her cricket lover father. Her rise in cricket from district level to state and then to International Cricket coincides with the travails faced by her father in agriculture. The movie makes a strong impact and is backed by some stellar performances from Aishwarya Rajesh and Rajendra Prasad. After closely perusing both Kausalya Krishnamurthy and Gotro, based on many parameters, 

We say... 

Kausalya Krishnamurthy is Pycker India’s Best Movie of the Week. 

Best Movie of the Week - Kousalya Krishnamurthy
Best Movie of the Week - Kousalya Krishnamurthy

Give a big hand to director Bheemineni Srinivasa Rao and his team which includes Aishwarya Rajesh, Rajendra Prasad, and music director Dhibu Ninan Thomas. 

Strong Recommendation: Gotro
