Amaram is the story of Achootty (Mammootty), a fisherman and his daughter, Radha (Maathu). The uneducated Achootty wants his daughter to be educated and also wants her to become a doctor. His dreams get shattered when she falls in love with her childhood friend. One fine day Achootys's daughter and her lover elope and get married. Achootty does not like his son-in-law initially and in disappointment does not talk to his daughter either. But slowly the young chap shows that he is an able and hard-working fisherman and gains Achootty's silent admiration. Achooty does not acknowledge this publicly, but keeps heckling his son-in-law in public, taunting him to catch a shark and prove himself before he dares talk to Achooty. One day, the son-in-law decides he's had enough of the taunting and goes to the deep sea to capture a shark. But he is inexperienced, and in a fit of daring goes out alone in his catamaran. When he does not return, people think that Achootty killed him at sea since ... Written by ARUN

Mammootty is wonderful
1 March 2004 | by manishgeoSee all my reviews

Amaram is the story of achootty(Mammootty), the poor fisherman and his daughter(mathu).The uneducated Achootty wants her daughter to be educated and also want her to become a doctor. His dreams get shattered when she falls in love with her childhood friend. The story is shot entirely in the beautiful seashores of alleppy, kerala, India. Director Bharathan has done a marvelous job, panoramising the beauty of kerala seashores and to look into the life of the fishermen. The songs were melodious and meaningful. Mammootty(winner of 3 Bharath awards) has succeeded emotionally and physically in portraying the simple minded achootty. The Malayalam accent of his sounds exactly like the way fishermen talk in Kerala. He simply deserves an other Bharath award for his performance.
