Great one for it's times
9 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Following recent discussions about malayalam cinema, Bharathan stood out as being much more of an artist than Padmarajan. I also realized that there are so many movies from this great director that I have not yet seen.

That is how I watched Chamaram on youtube two hours back.

The start of the movie was very endearing with Johnson's 'Naadha nee varum kaalochcha kelkkuvan' and the innocent flawless beauty of Sarina Wahab. The theme score was nice too. The movie seems to have been remade so very many times that the story did not offer anything new.

The movie tells the story of a love affair between a student and his teacher. Uncomfortable truths. Bharathan and Padmarajan have been attracted to such uncomfortable themes and present such subjects in their films.Chamaram also fits into this genre.

Sarina Wahad and Pratap Poththan have done their parts well. Sarina stood out much more due to her beauty.
