It seems my opinion is contrary to popular opinion. Nevertheless, I am going to state that Rachiyamma is at a pedestal, above the other two. It mainly has to do with its writing as it's a visual adaptation of the short story by legendary writer, 'Uroob'. Frankly I even felt like the other two movies, in spite of the fact that it was written by two very talented modern day writers, were sort of justifying why Uroob's stories were being adapted into movies even in 2021. The scripting for Rani by Unni R was good, but when we realise that at a particular point in the two movies when the two main characters are essentially discussing about the same thing with Rani deliberately due to it's context taking an explicit approach and Rachiyamma being implicit and hiding away the context in it's dialogues, it is still the latter that manages to stir within us a range of emotions and make us love and relate ourselves to the two on-screen characters, then we are left with no choice but to praise Uroob's writing skills. Then again, there is the performance by the leads. Comparisons were drawn between this Rachiyamma and the Doordarshan version starring Madhupal and Sona Nair with a reasonably good percentage preferring the latter. But this has to do with commercialization which is vital for movies or serials seeking to make a profit. In other words, while Madhupal and Sona Nair kept their performance perfect to 990 out of 1000, Parvathy and Asif, as expected from them performed so as to satisfy a minimum of 60,000 out of 1 lakh. It is just remarkable that the duo while romancing in Uyare, and even with the absence of dialogues, correctly conveys the tensions and distance whereas here many times without dialogues, they make us feel the love and intimacy the characters share. That's just acting at it's best which should be appreciated. Cinematographers turned directors guarantees stunning visuals and here too ace cinematographer Venu proved to be not an exception.
