Storyline

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 Anonymous

Beautiful & Very energizing
22 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On very few occasions does one's heart pour out after watching a movie. 'Adaminte Makan Abu' is made with such compassion and class that my words will go begging. The film is about an aged couple whose only wish is to pay a visit to Mecca. As pious Muslims, they have certain compulsions that puts them in an uncomfortable position with their friends, where a Hindu teacher, a Christian businessman and an orphan Muslim travel agent try to offer help to Abu and Aisu.

Even though Abu desperately wants to visit Mecca, he never fails to recognize his responsibility towards his wife and his society.

Setup with a backdrop in a rural village in Kerela, the movie is a beautiful journey of pain, love, compassion, forgiveness and brotherhood. Even though I am a staunch atheist and not a Keralite, I loved the movie for its originality and sincerity.
