Storyline

Human fragility inspired by "Glass Menagerie"; an Anglo-Indian family in northern Kerala. Neil, a middle-aged writer, struggles with the story of his life, which he has promised to give to a publisher. As he starts writing, we are transported to his past, occupied by his cranky mother Margaret and sister Rose. Neil is a frustrated youngster, working as a clerk in a warehouse, but aspiring to be a writer. His only escape from mundane existence is cinema. Margaret is a demanding and possessive mother, who has her traumatic past to deal with: her sailor husband abandoned her when the children were still young. Rose is a shy and withdrawn girl, suffering from an inferiority complex because of a slight deformity in her leg. She is fascinated by glass figurines. Margaret is worried about Neil's weird ways and Rose's future. She and Neil are always at loggerheads. Things take a turn when Neil brings home a young colleague, Freddy Evans, for dinner at the insistence of his mother. The dreams ... Written by Riyaz Usman

An excellent adaptation
22 December 2004 | by (India) – See all my reviews

An excellent adaptation of the Tennesse William's play. The localisation as well as the modernalisation of the plot is commendable. It is rare to come across such detailing and technical finesse in a regional cinema of India. The performances are the best in the movie. Geetu playing the role of Rose( Laura as in the play) brings out the rare and delicate persona of the character. The Cinematography gives the movie it's special feel and nuances it well with the central theme of parting and memory. The faded blue of the paneled windows fluttering in the foreboding thunder is an image that would linger in my mind for a long time. All in in all very good effort by the director Shyamaprasad, whose earlier film was also as evocative as this one
