Lot's of things are said inside and outside internet about Santhosh Pandit. Yes the new poster boy of internet and cinema. His first movie Krishnanum Radhayum has evoked so much of talk among malayalies. Every one have their own reason to hate or like Santhosh Pandit. Lets accept the fact that we can't just ignore him as a Fad.
He may not sustain, but might save Malayalam cinema in a different way. Only 3 hit movies in malayalam last year. There are lots of young guys who have lots on skills related to this industry. Santhosh proved that every one can do it themselves..if they strongly believe in them. No super star or super director is required, not to mention support of AMMA or MACTA.
And about his dialogues in the movie, i feel it's nothing less when you compare to "Savaari giri giri or Mohan thomas uchishtam". If his dialogues were said by a Super star, everybody might have clapped.
Coming to his songs, Rathri Shubha raathri or Maayaavi. If you just hear song by itself, ignoring the video it doesn't feel that bad.
He may be a bad actor, a bad director....but his determination is something you cant just ignore. In a place where crors spend movies still reside in Boxes, he did everything single handly and make sure it reached the theaters... He is NOT a fool, his IQ level seems to be much high than normal people. He knows how to market his movie. He did no wrong because he released a movie in 5 Lakhs budget., but instead he proved that lot of things are possible if you have the determination or will. If any one have time do watch 3 interview videos in the below link ,will get some idea about what he really is.
For me , he is a start-up guy. He believes in his idea and ready to do any job or take risks to convert his idea in to a product and succeeds in it.
