Abu and Aisumma are an aging Muslim couple. Their aspiration is to go for Hajj and they make many sacrifices to achieve this aim. Now in their late 70s, they decide that they will go for Hajj that year. Abu, being a true Muslim, wants to go for Hajj only according to all diktats of Islam. Good-natured people try to help him by loaning the amount, but since this is against the accepted practices of the religion, he refuses to take them. Finally, they are not able to go. On the dawn of the Hajj, Abu tells his wife that they will go the next year. He goes to the mosque to pray on the Hajj morning. Written by
Recently I watched one Malayalam movie which is on martial arts and Portuguese invasion, a big budget movie. I became disappointed big time seeing the way the Malayalam movies moving ahead. Before that I happened to watch couple of Malayalam movies those were commercial success. But I found them disappointing as well. I heard about this movie, "adaminte makan abu" and its performance in various awards, especially the best actor national award. So I bought t the DVD of this movie, and kept aside for some time. Finally when I watched this movie, I became speechless. What a movie !!! This is clearly a statement to Malayalam movie industry. There is no need for them to go to foreign locations or import glamorous heroines. This movie tells the story of an elderly Muslim couple who had their own share of personal agonies. Irrespective of that they decides to go to the holy Hajj, they kept aside all their savings only for this one ambition. I do not what t say what happens in the movie. If you are the ones who love good movies, go buy this one. I will not be surprised if this movie gets another Oscar to India.
