Akashadooth
12 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

A director can never make a much better movie than this.The mother's love for her children is the main highlight of the movie.The mother was born n brought up as an orphan and she doesn't want her children, who were not born as orphans to become orphans all of a sudden.The alcoholic husband depicts a typical Kerala common man.In the worst case scenario the husband gave up his habit of drinking and it clearly shows his love for Annie, his beloved wife.The mother was not ready to surrender to the disease without making her children's future safe.She was ready to sacrifice all her wealth,her four children and this is what she owns in her entire life.Three of her children were adopted but the disabled child remains.The child was happy spending his life with his mother.At the end of the movie, all the four children were crying seeing their mother's funeral and each of them were taken back by their adoptive parents.Anyhow the two brothers were united and it brings happiness and peace of mind to the viewers :)
