Really Good
23 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Kasthooriman" brings on screen the most promising pair of Malayalam Cinema, Kunchacko Boban and Meera Jasmine.

Kastoorimaan is writer-director Lohithadas' ode to his protégé Meera Jasmine. Quite clearly she is the star of the show and the cleverly crafted script showcases her acting capabilities to the hilt. The film is worth a watch in the theaters, thanks to an engaging directorial style of Lohithadas who believes in simple and straightforward way of story telling.

Sajan (Kunchakko Boban) is a rich, soft-spoken and studious young man, while his junior Priyamvada (Meera Jasmine) is smart and outgoing type. Her close friend is in love with Sajan, but he avoids her by saying that his only ambition in life is to study hard and become an IAS. But Priya follows him and digs out the truth that though he hails from a rich family, his father has now gone bankrupt and has no money even to pay the exam fee! On hearing this, her friend ditches him but slowly Priya starts having a soft corner for him. She even pays his fees but Sajan tries to avoid her and treats this as an insult.

One day Sajan meets Priya in his father's friend's house. He is shocked to know that she is a servant there. Sajan realizes that she works as a domestic help in four houses to looks after her family and pay for her education. He admires her and starts loving her. Priya helps him with money to go for his IAS coaching in Delhi and it is the happiest day for her when Sajan gets his IAS. But there is an unexpected twist in the climax.

In an industry that is male dominated, the author-backed role of Priyamwada, a very outgoing and assertive girl is played brilliantly by Meera Jasmine. She has come up with an excellent performance that captures every nuances of the character. Boban Kunchakko as Sajan plays his role effectively so that the heroine can sparkle. It is Lohi's best attempt at making a great entertainer. The supporting cast are all new faces and everybody has done their roles very well. Songs tuned by Ouseppachan are good.
