      Default ~~DRUSHYAM: AN EMOTIONAL ANALYSIS~~~

      FILM: DRUSHYAM
      SCREEN: SPICINEMAS, CBE
      TIME: Friday Night 10:30 p.m. and Sunday morn 10:40 a.m.
      STATUS: Housefull

      The climax scene of Drushyam does not have the hero bashing down 100 villains, or finally winning the heroine's heart after hard fought battles....neither is it a laughter ridden marriage ceremony climax nor does it bring out the legendary actor's best acting moment on screen, but still I witnessed something that I've not witnessed here for any Malayalam film...spontaneous claps just as the scene was going on, not just in appreciation of the movie that was obviously very good, but for that superbly crafted parting shot, the brilliance of the director to place it there at the right place, the right moment...yep, Jeethuvaanu Thaaram!!! To tell the truth, I clapped involuntarily too, i.e., without me even planning/knowing that I am going to clap when this film ends...my eyes just welled up with tears, happy tears, and this is one cinematic experience that will stay with me till I end up under the mother earth, just as Georgekutty says in the film!!!

      The story in a nutshell is what happens when a stranger comes into ur cozy family life and disturbs the whole equilibrium of ur family. Jeethu laces this story with a first half full of some subtle family life moments that were once the strength of a Sathyan Anthkkad/Balachandra Menon/Sreenivasan, an art that the distinguished forgot in the latter part of their careers. The lovable father in law steals the following dialogues right from our own mouths when he makes light of women's tendency to buy 2-3 different utensils for the same purpose, 'paalu choodaakkaan oru paathram', 'veettil randu per kooduthal varumbo paal choodaakkaan athe type, pakshe kurachu valiyoru paathram'...who doesn't have a mom/wife/sister/aunt at home who hasn't at least made one such request when in a shop at least once in ur life?....simple n lovely writing The first half is full of such small precious moments from our day to day family life including a husband who watches 'Aashiq Banaaya Aapne' song on TV and changes all his other plans and rushes to his wife in the mood, and the next day morning, he jokes about 'innu parambil poyi kilakkaan stamina theere illa'

      Jeethu's main lead is a movie buff like all of us here, who owns a cable tv network, dreams of owning a theater, and he will not let anyone else manage it...'athu sheriyaavilla, njaan thanne nokkanam' he says...he's not doing it just for a living, he loves films and that plays an important part in the soaring second half and climax and postclimax where Jeethu raises the bar so high that I don't know how he is going to better this film!!! But then, I had this same doubt after watching his Memories, and as Diggu mentioned the other day, who knows, he is made for bigger things!

      The casting...not a member of the cast keeps a step wrong. Georgekutty is safe in Lalettan's hands, thanks to Jeethu the actor gets to play a character that tames the star in him and let him be the natural actor that made him a star. Meena plays an apt foil, and where Jeethu outscores someone like Blessy is in casting two superb child actors in those two prominent roles, they don't go overboard nor underplay but are two of the near perfect child performances that I've seen in sometime...hats off! Shajon is another revelation, gets to play against his usual type and he scores. Asha Sarath is so authoritative in her IPS avatar, though shows a tendency to lapse into teleserial acting in the emotional scenes. Siddhique is an actor who guarantees u a good performance irrespective of the kind of film, here too he is fine. The guy who plays Lalettan's assistant also is just perfect. Even our very own Antony Perumbavoor plays it well, though his final salute raised some laughs.

      I went ahead and sold my reserved tickets of D3 and Biriyani (luckily I found buyers for both), booked again for Drushyam, and we all went again and watched it today...I did not want any mindless film to spoil the orgasmic state that I was in after watching this film. My wife was the one who compelled me to book tickets for Biryani, and it was she who asked me if it's possible we cancel it n watch this again...yes, we did, and we are still raving and talking about the movie, and won't be watching anything for some time, just soaking this one in! Undoubtedly, our best cinema experience together...Thank you Jeethu, thank you lalettan, meena and the two adorable child actors for their heartwarming performances! Each and everyone who was part of this film can be proud even if they don't work in any other film their whole life, and we as Malayalees can be proud that other languages may churn out 200 cr-300 crore blockbusters, but we still make films like Drushyam!!!

      DINO'S TAKE: Undoubtedly, the best commercial film in Malayalam in a long long time....let me stick my neck out n call it, an epic that will stand the test of time like Manichithrathaazhu...n am ready to hang for it!

      PLEASE WATCH IT IN THEATERS...PLEASE DO MAKE THIS FILM A HUGE SUCCESS, WHICHEVER CORNER U ARE IN THE WORLD!!
