One of the BEST movie in Malayalam
2 May 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If a movie has a solid storyline,brilliant acting,superb music,beautiful screenplay it can be categorized as one of the best..& 'PAVITHRAM' certainly falls in that category.It is one of the movies that will always be remembered for its brilliance.Outstanding acting by Mohanlal(one of the finest actors in India) is the highlight of the movie.This film is set in a village in Kerala.The movie captures your heart with every scene being lit up with brilliant acting,music..The film has one of the most solid stories ever made in malayalam movie history.Supporting roles by nedumudi venu,Thilakan,Vinduja menon,KPAC lalitha,innocent,late narendra prasad etc is simply superb.Female lead,Shobhana is brilliant.Music is composed by Sharath which is outstanding..PAVITHRAM has a story that is realistic..

Overall this is a beautiful movie..Everybody who has a heart that cares will love this..One of the best movie I've seen till date..Mohanlal's performance will glue you towards this movie for sure...I rate it 10/10...
