A nice drama.
29 August 2008 | by (Chennai, India.) – See all my reviews

I watched this film after a month it got released. Indeed it was a very good entertainer with a handful of emotional jolts.

Story. Love story. Between a guy and a deaf-and-dumb girl. The girl is Jothika who played that part wonderfully. That guy is Prithwiraj who is a cinema music composer. He and Prakash Raj are friends and room mates. Swarnamalya comes as Jothika's friend.

Script. The script is quite a neat and decent one. Radha Mohan is known for this in his earlier movie 'Alzakiya Theeye'. Smells like a Malyalam script(He is a Malayalee). In the whole movie I felt tears on my eyes on one scene. His direction is good. Dialogs are written by Viji. They are humorous and make the characters lively. One of strengths of the movie is the dialogs. Another strength is the music. I could not believe Vidyasagar's music. Such a beautiful melodies (really original?.. sorry could not believe it..that much extraordinary). Balaram's voice on the main song along with the lyrics are one among the long lasting ones.

The actors all are good. In the top ranking order Jothika, Prakashraj, Prithwiraj, Wwarnamalya, the lost-out professor, the flat secretary etc. Prakashraj does this small work just like that. He is such a talented actor. Jothika has evolved into good acting with this movie. The dump character's sign language she mixes with her face expressions beautifully (no voices for her). I have my own DVD of this movie to watch it whenever I like to watch it. It surely is a classic. Especially the climax scenes between Jothika, Prithvi, Prakash and Swarna.

In 90s when I was in college we saw one movie 'The Children Of Lesser Gods'. I am pretty sure that Molzhi has 80% similar to that movie on story-line. Both the lead actors in that movie got Oscars for their performance. The actors learned sign language for about two years to act in that film. In that movie that guy works as a teacher in a deaf-and-dumb school. That girl works as a sweeper in that school who was also a deaf-and-dumb girl. That too is a love story. One thing Molzhi had additionally is the 'deaf girl feeling music'; which in my view is the artistic insight of the director into the humane nature. In this expression Molzhi crossed 'The Children Of Lesser Gods' a few steps ahead. Absolute feeling of an artiste as a deaf person. Alas, I heard this(deaf girl's feeling of music) too is from some other movie.

There are lots of movies that has some inspirational movies behind them. Molzhi is one such a movie but still I can be OK with it. My wishes to Radha Mohan, Viji, Baradwaj and Jothika who played the keys for this beautiful 'sign language'(even though it is an imitation).
