Great story telling
16 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is another feather in the caps of both A K Lohithadas and Meera Jasmine. Lohithadas is one of the best screenwriter and directors in the Malayalam cinema industry. His style of story-telling and characterization are a reference for any emerging screenwriter. He always takes the best out of his actors. The characters he has created are found in our day-to-day life and are very realistic. One can blindly go for watching a Lohithadas written or directed movie without any second thought.

Meera Jasmine, as Priyamvada, has sparkled in the movie and it is very clearly her movie. Each and every expression on her face whether as an easy-going, carefree student or one going through a lot of turmoil in her personal life, is mindblowing. She is one of the best actresses to have donned the Malayalam film industry, the best since Manju Warrier. Her National Award for Best Actress in the T V Chandran-directed film, Paadam Onnu Oru Vilampam, so early in her career clearly talks of the abundance of talent this young actress possess. I liked her performance in two scenes in the movie, one in which she kills her brother-in-law Rajendran and the second when Sajan comes to visit her at the jail.

Other actors who stands out are Kudapalli Leela (Rajendran's mother)and Shammi Thilakan (Rajendran), the latter following in his father's footsteps as a talented actor.

The opening of the movie is not so good. The scene where the Collector is dressing makes one think that this is a comedy movie. And when the movie cuts into the flashback, it seems to be another one of those college romance movies. The story begins to unfold only after Sajan finds Priya working as a housemaid to make both her house and studies going together.

All in all, this is a great movie minus the songs which are not so good.

ONLY MALAYALAM ARTISTS CAN MAKE SUCH STRONG CHARACTERS LIKE THAT OF PRIYAMVADA, IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY.
