Storyline

So, we have the kernel of the old story reworked a little and made a bit complex with the use of flashbacks. Raju (Siddharath himself), who was in Germany to do some research, was not informed of his mother's demise, and has a nervous breakdown when he gets the news. He takes a couple of years to recover and after that he marries his childhood sweetheart Ashwathy (Rima Kallingal), who is the family chauffeur's daughter. But, his near and dear ones look at every action of his through the prism of his past illness, which frustrates him. It does not help that he has a rather short temper. To add to the oddities, he has converted his bedroom into a space research lab, and dreams of building an organically self-sustainable world for himself and his wife in the middle of the family's rubber estate. But, his elder brother, Vishwan (Jishnu), has plans to build a resort catering to foreign clients. All this makes Raju very angry and violent and people begin to think that his illness has ...

"Nidra" is a classic revisited

‎"Nidra" is a classic revisited. Its cinematic and brilliant, and more importantly oozes in fresh air in a period where Malayalam movies bank hugely on inspirations from west. Alright its a remake, but definitely gets the edge as it smartly blends in with contemporary issues and circumstances - though i liked the original one, couldn't keep it in my heart.

Siddharth has definitely got the touch, but his acting leaves much to be desired. Rima Kallingal steals the show easily, the others never looked outta place and Jishnu makes a good comeback. The music glues well, the background score & cinematography needs special mention and left me in trance many a time. Seriously the movie was refreshing in many ways, been a while since have blended well with a Malayalam film, though i felt erratic at times with the stringing of certain scenes. The intimate and candid scenes between siddharth and rima were so good - first time i couldn't help but love rima, sensuousness sans her glam doll image - with no gimmickry, no surrealism, no inane dialogues. The entertainment quotient is missing which wouldn't go well with everyone alike. The climax scene was so poignant and beautiful. Loved every bit of this movie experience.
