A Blog on Cinema

Our 100th post



When we started this site in November 2005 to keep track of news of Malayalam cinema we did not expect that there would be such a huge response to our weblog. We had started initially on the hosted service at, but seeing the demand, we moved to our own domain in February.

We now have more than 1000 page views everyday and is growing. People visit us mostly from India, United States and UAE. This blog started with two authors and now we have two guest authors, Unni and Jo.

We try to make a post every working day. The best way to subscribe to our site is to use a blog reader like or Google Reader. You can also enter your email address in the subscribe box on the left sidebar to get new articles via email.

We cover a wide range of topics here related to movies, like previews, review roundups and detailed reviews. We also comment on film making and make suggestions on what type of movies we like to see. Still guess, what people visiting our site are searching for? – Mamta Mohandas.

This lady alone has contributed to almost 1200 page views so far and still remains the top searched word. Lot of readers are also concerned about the personal hygene of various actress as evident from search words like these – “Kavya Madhavan taking bath”, and “tamil actress bathing scene”. The top viewed page is the one we wrote on the habit of Malayali actresses going to Tamil and resorting to glamourous roles. More than 3000 views! A very sobering statistic.

We thank each of our readers for your support. If you have any suggestions for improvement in this site or ideas for any articles or if you would like to write something for us, please get in touch with us at editor AT


  1. Congratulation Team on your 100 the post in such a short time.

  2. Congratulations!

    For long, I have searched for a decent Malayalam Movie site containing fresh news and reviews-that-are not churned out by paid page3 journalists about movies in Gods Own Country and come up with a a naught.

    Varnachitram is a blog that clearly fills that void.

    Wishing you all much success in this endeavour.

  4. In a job which provides (restricted but not so)access to Internet around 8-9 hours a day, the only respite from the mundane work was the usual surfing of decent malayalam web sites. Stumbled upon this site, which besides providing a refreshing lay-out, its sharp unbiased comments, made it not just another blog in the big bad world of the Internet.

    Well done. Here’s wishing you a few more centuries on the days to come.


  5. Great going guys! And congrats on the 100th post. I feel honored to be part of this wonderful team.

  6. That’s indeed an achievement in a scenario where thousands of south movie web-sites exist!By the way the statistics about Mamta Mohandas does not seem to be true.I was taken to ‘Navya’s bath scenes rather than me going there’!Thanks to the hyperlinks offered!Can’t blame it on me,I guess…

    Anyways,it’s a good web-site that rekindles nostalgia …
