Set in the 1960s and 70s in Mukkam, Kerala, the film tells the tragic love story of Moideen who belongs to a renowned Muslim family and Kanchana Mala who is the daughter of a Hindu Thiyya aristocratic landlord. Since inter-religious marriages were a taboo then, the couple had to part ways as their families objected to their love affair. Moideen shifted ground to being a socio-political activist and Kanchanamala lived in her house under strict restrictions for 22 years. Both communicated through letters and language they had developed. Eventually Kanchanmala was caught and beaten mercilessly by her conservative relatives. The lovers then finally decide to go to America, for which Moideen arranges passport for Kanchanamala and himself. When he was returning with the passport, Moideen drowns in a boat mishap in the river Iruvazhinjippuzha in July 1982. This shatters Kanchana Mala.

A story which demands more respect than Romeo or Juliet, not to mention a true one
Watch it for the indescribable feeling that will descend after hearing a story like this.Watch it if you have empathy and feel the pain. A pain most describable if you ever loved someone like this.Watch it for the experience. Now coming to the translation of the story into screenplay. I feel, the movie could have used some editing. There were parts in the beginning that dragged and I could hear people say during the interval "what was all that hype about?""Maybe we came with too much expectations" etc etc Let me assure you,no such feeling was shared in the second half of the movie. Intense scenes of desperation laced with passion of their love took over. The story line definitely carries the movie a long way. This review would be incomplete without a mention about the amazing picturization. The rain scenes made you feel like you were actually there smelling the aroma of mud wet from rain (A pleasant treat for all who are away from sweet home Kerala). The casting was perfect - each actor competing with themselves to give their best performance. My personal favorite was Parvathy, Lena and Sai kumar. Overall, who doesn't like a movie that renders an experience? I would definitely recommend it that too in a movie theater. I cant possibly imagine missing out on the details of picturization in any small screen or anything less than HD.
