Emotional,
26 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film haunted me for many days when I was a child, but always staying in my heart. I've seen this film on Doordarshan in 1990 or 1991. I was so afraid to look and hid behind my mother. At that time I didn't fully understood what Mammooti said, which is "body found".

The only thing I remembered from the film was the song "Peru Perakka, Naadu Naranga", not even know the name of the film. I asked many people what's the film's name, explained the story, song title, but no one knows. In 2008/2009, I spend lots of time googling the song and story, but didn't get a hint. Almost given up.

But recently, I again googled the song name and found the movie name and even seen the song in YouTube. Thankfully, somebody uploaded it.

Around 25 years later, I watched this, one of my favourite ever Malayalam movie again. I didn't watch fully,skipped, that I am afraid to go through that emotions and trauma again.
