The movie represents the obscure relationship between a father and a son in the most legendary fashion and the result is one of the best Indian movies
4 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Sphadikam, belongs to the class of south Indian cinema which is almost extinct at the present time. One of the most prodigal characters, Thomas chako aka aadu thoma along his father chako maash(kaduva chako) make the movie the most impactful psychological experience a south Indian can achieve. The kind of music, direction and cinematography we can spot in the movie is completely void from the south Indian film industry now. The striking dialogs and incredible acting make the viewer have goosebumps. Its a shame that Malayalam movies have gone a lot down from this kind of quality in direction and acting. Even Mohanlal(Thomas chako) has begun doing pathetic movies like Alexander the great and Kandahar. As for sphadikam, its the most kick-ass movie in Malayalam along with devasuram. Truly a legendary one for the directors.
