based on a book daddy longlegs by jean Webster
23 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is based on a book daddy longlegs by jean Webster. one of shobana's and rahman's first movies. the story is of an orphan girl who has an anonymous benefactor who sends her to college. she communicates with him through her letters. when they meet, he recognizes her from the details in her letter but doesn't reveal himself. to make matters convenient, she is his niece's/sister's classmate. it was a big hit of its time in Malayalam cinema. the songs "oru madura kinavin" and "kastoori maan kurunne" were very popular. shobana still has the innocence in her eyes in this movie. there is some variation from the book. i loved the book and this movie is pretty close to it. shobana plays the orphan girl, mammootty the benefactor, royachan and rahman, the boy in love with shobana. rahman's role is not in the book. seema also appears in a few scenes as a doctor and this deviates from the book as well.
