UTHARAM: ASK THE QUESTION FIRST


“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” – which means “God with us”. – Matthew 1:23

So begins the question of the virgin. To ask a question, there are some always ready, looking everywhere without hesitation without second-guesses. And guess what. You may be better off not knowing the answer sometimes. At least that is what the scenarist and director of movie Utharam says in one of its concluding moments. Amen to that.

The young poetess of her generation, Seleena takes a shot to her chest with seemingly no reason. Everyone is confounded at the turn of events, preeminent among them her husband Matthew. ‘She was happy’, he insists earnestly and his journalist friend Balu has no two doubts about it. So when did something rotten indeed creep into Denmark, he asks and asks for the rest of the movie.

I haven’t read Lady Daphne du Maurier’s short story No Motive to see how much has the scenarist M.T.Vasudeven Nair incorporated the movie. But perhaps I don’t need to. It bears every bit trademark of the dramatist to a fault. The characters speak and behave as if they are aware of their predicament and wade through the waters of plot as if they know the mind of the writer who pens the other characters. And they oblige too which is the beauty of the film. No loose ends. Consider the scenes where Balu spends in the company of Matthew in the beginning or the barrage of scatter shot dialogues flying between Balu and the superintendent of the child services and you will know what I mean. But the same couldn’t be said about the pace of the movie which I might say is impressive of a movie veering more towards art house sensibilities. The director Pavithran deserves a pat on his shoulder for this and making the proceedings focused on what the writer intended. As for his execution skills, I have to yet see a director talented enough like Bharathan who could transcend the verbal constructions of an M.T. screenplay into something more. No blame on Pavithran there.

As for performances, the leading actor Mammootty gives flesh to a character that is pretty much one-dimensional. It is a testament to his skills that we don’t pause for one moment to ask whether Balu as a character has rather something personal in his investigation other than helping a friend to sink such depths with his questions. The zest is there along with the wiles. Parvathy is adequate with her portrayal of Shyamala. Sukumaran shines with his razor sharp characterization of the character Matthew. Shankarady, Innocent, Sukumari and Jagannathan were apt. But Suparna was a letdown, who was borderline flat with her essaying of the title role, Seleena. A complex character of such shades should have done by someone else who radiates intelligence than beauty. Both the chatty youth and mature years of Seleena demanded a range in acting which is sorely missing here.

As for the technical departments, DOP Ramachandrababu didn’t disappoint to say the least. Nothing exceptional but then again nothing stale. Add to that, locations of Mysore, Bylakuppe and Kallooppara have delivered their fair share. Editor Ravi has sliced the film as required and BGMs provided by Johnson were complimentary. The exquisite poems of O.N.V beautifully composed by Vidhyadharan serve well.

As a question demands an answer and an answer a question, much do linger about Seleena after the film runs its course. Like did she really forget what happened to her? If so, did she really believe she was a girl who was orphaned at five? If not, why did she not tell that to Matthew? Had she ever suspected anything amiss with how her life turned? All these answers I think are buried someplace in this story. All it takes would be perhaps to come up with our own conclusions or get acquainted with the celebrated work of that celebrated author who wrote such masterpieces as Rebecca, The Birds, Don’t Look Now and Jamaica Inn. Perhaps it won’t be a near-miss after all.



Regards,
Brandolal

Sarvakalashala

In my opinion the best campus film ever made in Malayalam. It captures the liveliness of college life and friendship so well that even today if one watches the film and its characters, they remind you of the college life during the glorious 80s. Story revolves around an orphan Lalettan (Mohanlal) who is doing his 3rd Masters. Lalettan believes that he cannot leave the college as it has become an integral part of his life hence finds ways to continue studying there. Respected by his juniors and the faculty alike , Lalettan even spends his vacations on the empty campus waiting for the college to reopen.

Director Venu Nagavally successfully combines the youthfulness of college life with the stark realities of life and brings out a memorable film that gets embedded in the mind of the viewer forever. The movie also brings together some of the best acting talents of the 80s and every actor has delivered a knockout performance. It is arguably director Venu Nagavally's best work, the way the director has mixed flashbacks and present action is truly seemless.

This movie would be on any of my "MUST WATCH MALAYALAM FILM" list

Thoovanathumbikal

Rating – 9.5/10




A poignant masterpiece!! May be the best romantic movie ever made in Malayalam, thanks to the genius of late Padmarajan who is a pioneer at depicting the various emotions of life through his immaculate screenplays, that even today it has a cult status and huge fan following.

Plot: Based on a novel written by Padmarajan himself, it revolves around a bachelor who leads a contrasting dual life, named Jayakrishnan (Mohanlal), his intimacy & love towards two females: Clara (Sumalatha), a prostitute and a village girl Radha (Parvathy) and his confusions over who should be his life-partner amidst numerous complexities.

Evaluation: No words to describe the craftsmanship of Padmarajan, and anyone who is in doubt why he is considered may be the best film-maker of all time in Malayalam, do watch it for its never late!! Music by Perumbavoor G. Raveendranath is evergreen, bringing out the sensual and serene moods of the narrative. Re-recording by Johnson truly oozes out the romantic in you, a timeless piece of euphony! Acting was flawless all-round. Mohanlal and Sumalatha lives as JK and Clara illustrating all the complex emotions to its perfection. Parvathy, Babu Namboothiri and Ashokan had pitched in beautiful performances.
