Review ★★★
Ustad Hotel

I wanted to see where my favorite actor, Dulquer Salman, got his start. This led me to Ustad Hotel, a Malayalam film that proved difficult to find (and the subtitles were even harder to get working when you did find it). What I found was a lovely, quintessentially Indian movie filmed on what seemed like old film equipment. It was really charming. I’m still learning to get used to how subtle Malayalam movies can be (almost thinking of comparing them to hearing a story at a campfire) but Ustad Hotel balances that with an interesting story and characters.


★★★ ★★
