Storyline

Yavanika (The Curtain)...is the search for the truth..the truth behind the curtain (as it always be..), slowly unfolds as the story progress in a rapid pace and finally splits wide to it's perfection... A brilliant and thought provoking crime investigation, and undoubtedly the one which paved way to other movies of the same genre... Written by antophil

Well Crafted
30 June 2010 | by (minneapolis, US) – See all my reviews

This is a well crafted movie with memorable characters. It easily stands the test of time because the acting, direction and production values are all quite comparable to today's Malayalam movies. Of course Gopi is the standout but Venu, Jalaja, Mammootty and even Ashokan as the rebellious son all play their parts well.

The other reviewer criticises this for not being a true murder mystery, but I have to differ on two counts- the murderer isn't all that obvious and the movie really aspires to be more than a mere murder story. The drama troupe and the interactions of the varied characters, the social drama of the plight of the poor woman with 3 daughters, all are well portrayed.
