It's Manju Warrier all the way.
2 June 2010 | by (Kochi, India) – See all my reviews

I miss Manju Warrier so much whenever I watch this movie - what a stellar performance it was! Everyone in Kerala knows her acting prowess, but "Kanmadam" according to me, was her best ever role. Of course, a lot of credit should go to late Mr.Lohithadas for creating this dream role for her. Although others in the movie were overshadowed by Manju's brilliance, their performances are not to be forgotten. Mohanlal as Viswanathan did a commendable job. Siddique, Lal & the old woman who acted as Manju's grandma were quite good too. Lohithadas's brilliant script & direction combined with the rustic charm of rural Palakkad,which was beautifully captured by cameraman Ramachandra Babu make this movie a delight to watch & own. I still remember the mad rush at shops in & around Cochin when it was released on DVD/VCD.
