A movie that literally rewrote history. The launch of this movie saw a much maligned character of Kerala's folklore turn into a magnificent hero. Whatever the veracity of the account, the movie saw a million hearts warm to the hapless fate of Chandu. A name that would otherwise have evoked images of treachery and deceit, tuned overnight into a legend in its own right. A movie that still after decades of its launch makes goosebumps crawl through your skin and makes your heart ache for the protagonist. The writer and the movie have successfully portrayed the character in a positive light without completely overturning the folklore. Not only did it portray an image of the protagonist as completely opposed to the folklore but it also managed to change the audience perceptions as well. The kudos goes to the excellent script written by M.T. If this movie were a propaganda effort of Chandu in his lifetime i am left in no doubt that he would have become a hero in his own lifetime. No word of praise would be enough for this legendary movie. It would not be an exaggeration to say that its a poetry written in celluloid.
