Storyline

Kerala-based George Nair is an efficiency expert who travels to Pune to provide a report on downsizing. He is met with the firm's Vice-President, Malathy Chandran, and must come up with a plan to let go a number of employees. Both spend time together and Malathy confides how she had exchanged matrimonial correspondence with another male from Kerala, while George describes his family, his Hindu mother and Christian father, and his elder brother who has been missing for two months. Neither are aware that George's brother, and the male that Malathy refers to, is one and the same. Will they find out his whereabouts? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

It is a love story that ends before it begins
10 December 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Debutant director Anup Kurian traces most exquisite relationship 'love' against the brilliant backdrop of picturesque landscapes shot in the magnificent locales of Kerala, Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh. Debutant cinematographer Viswamangal Kitsu has successfully painted the perfect picture in celluloid what exactly Anup wanted to draw in this classic love story narrated extraordinarily with a unique style of story telling. George Nair (Zafar Karachiwala) comes to Pune as a management consultant to advice restructuring of a publishing house. Here he meets the vibrant vice president of the company Malati Chandran (Neha Dubey). As the story unfolds Malati appears to be the girl, whose unrequited love compelled George's brother the environmental engineer Ravi Roy (Atul Kulkarni) disappear. Much of the story is in flashback as it unfolds through many letters that Ravi and Malati wrote to each other. The film ends on a philosophical note keeping the story open ended and thus giving the viewer a lot to think. The narrative is always very smart due to intelligent editing by Unni Vijayan. Brilliant performance of Atul Kulkarni as a young, highly educated, spirited Keralite who prefers to work as a consultant from his picturesque village in Kumarokam is unparallel. Though in English, but the film speaks about India in such a poetic style that the viewer of any country, culture and language could realize what a harmonious life co-exists in India. It is a love story that ends before it begins.
