According to me new generation Malayalam movies is a bane. I wouldn't say all but majority belongs to this category. What I feel is that the old and middle aged Malayalam movies had good story and moral in it which is completely lacking in present age movies. Today in movies more important is given to love, romance and to the slang and vulgar words associated with sex. This creates a bad effect on children and they will want to know more about love and sex at an early age itself. As in Kerala, sex education is not given in schools or by parents, children go behind these movies and will discuss it in class and also wills search it over the net for more clarifications. This in-turn diverts their attention from studies and will be attracted towards love and sex.
Secondly, the new generation movies have nothing useful for the young generation. These movies comes with a love story, action scenes, low quality meaningless songs and a story with inappropriate climax. There are many brutal things happening around us today, movies should be able to portrait these situations in the story and try to make an awareness among the general public. But rather today movies are just released or produced keeping in view the collection it can get. Money should not be the sole aim of the people behind the making of a movie, they should also discharge their duties as a citizen through their movies. No producer or director can find a place in the public's heart by producing many movies, rather the quality of the movie counts.
Thirdly, today we have lot of technology available and committing a crime has become more easier than earlier. Detective movies shows various ways by which one can flick money or do some mischievous thing. This will catch the attraction of unemployed young Keralities and they start doing the same. This in-turn increases the number of culprits in our state. Almost all common man knows that the law is not very effective in Kerala and one with money can easily find a loop hole to escape even from a critical criminal case.
If the new generation movies was a boon, then problems like molestation, robbery, bribery etc would have decreased in our country by now. But as media and movies are taking less effort to make the public aware of their rights and to educate or to convince the brutal people around us, these crimes are increasing day by day. In a developing country like India, women are still not safe to travel alone that too in a train with hell lot of passengers.
Fourthly, I hardly like or remember any songs from new generation movies. The youngsters itself downloads and purchases songs of 80s and 90s. The lyrics of those songs were apt for the situation and had a power to catch the mind of the listeners. We still recollect those wonderful old lyrics but hardly anyone remember the lyrics of the songs that he/she ahs heard one or two months back. When a movie is released, I agree, everyone is eager to listen to these songs and after hearing it for 3 times, we start ignoring the song. Youngsters have no other option that to watch and listen to these low quality movies. The number of movies released in a year has drastically reduced when compared to 90s. This is because people refuse to watch movies with no content in it.
Fifthly, when a movies is taken, it should contain all elements and should be watchable by all generations of people. But now most of the movies come with a "youngster" tag and the words and slangs used in these movies won't be understood by a generation ahead us. If this situation goes on, then Malayalam film industry will soon reach a danger level. We have many happenings occurring around us and directors can chose any to make a story for their movie, instead they themselves are going back to old age movies and is getting ready to remake those movies.
