Simple Entertaining character driven movie - a must watch for malayalam movie lovers :)
8 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A story that personifies village life. Let me not talk about the story in the movie but rather give you an idea of it. This is a very complex movie to express in words.. but an easy one to watch !! Simple yet entertaining. All the characters are played well and are realistic. People helping each other, neighbours envious of each other, gulf malayali all make up various character types. The central character of "Thattan Bhaskaran" is played by sreenivasan here.. a simple goldsmith who is in love with the girl next door Urvashi. He is prepared to go to any extent to marry her.. which kind of offsets his life ! Sreenivasan himself scripts the movie. He initially wanted Mohan lal to play the goldsmith but later was convinced by the director Satyan anthikad that lal would add too much weight to the simple character and that he himself should play the character. A special mention goes out to Jagathy sreekumar the Vellichappad.... who is really amazing in this movie. This movie has lot of side characters who give commendable performances and also leave us rib-tickled :)))) - Mamkukhoya, Shankaradi, Oduvil Unnikrishnan, KPAC Lalitha.
