A Black rustic comedy from Padmarajan!!
25 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kallan Pavithran is Padmarajan at his best.

It is a black comedy/satire featuring some of the best Malayalam actors ever- Nedumudi Venu(Kallan Pavithran), Bharath Gopi(Mamachan)and Adoor Bhasi. Pavithran is a clever and cunning village thief who earns livelihood with some petty thefts and tricks. Gopi,who plays Mamachan, a local flour mill owner, is Pavithran's friend turned foe. Pavithran's life changes when he meets a rich metal trader(Adoor Bhasi)and his life takes an unexpected turn.

The innocence, clumsiness and gullibility of the villagers are deeply explored in the film. Backed by a strong script from the director himself, the film is replete with scathing irony and incidents of rustic simplicity. Nedumudi Venu and Gopi complement each other throughout the movie as two bitter rivals with their genuineness of expression.The movie meets a dramatic end and culminates in a message from the director.

Definitely a collector's piece!! 8 stars..
