      Default Prathi Poovan Kozhi ~ An Opinion

      Venue ~ Sree, Thrissur
      Showtime ~ 03:00 PM
      Status ~ 40%

      I believe this is that rare film from Rosshan Andrrews which came within a short period. In his interview, he claimed that his wife pushed him to make this film instead of the Nivin Pauly-R Unni film (which is postponed) because she claims that this is “our” story. Now with Manju Warrier in lead, its no surprise that its a female oriented subject with stuff.

      Madhuri (Manju Warrier) is a saleswoman who undergone trauma when a market goon, Antappan (Rosshan Andrews) grope her in the bus. The search for Antappan by the revenge thirsty Madhuri and the issues she get into as part of it forms the plot of the movie. Written by Unni R, the movie was able to give a detailed impression about the daily life of Madhuri which can be easily relatable to a common man. Now this movie can be debated based on 2 views. From a Woman’s Perspective and other from a Critic. The detailing of Madhuri and the extend of the psychological trauma she goes can be understood only by a woman. Sometimes a woman might play down the issue just like a character claims that “it happens on regular basis”. Now Madhuri is represented as trauma in women’s mind who has undergone through that issue. No matter how hard they try to forget, it will keep haunting them. Based on that, Prathipoovan Kozhi has hit the bullseye. Rosshan empowers Madhuri by making her search for Antappan in areas where women find it hard to go like the interiors of a market, night time at a boat jetty, not willing to go back even after witnessing a market fight featuring Antappan etc. In an important scene, Madhuri becomes synonymous to revenge which she cannot hide from. The movie’s debatable climax underlines that image. Now when you see from a critic’s point of view, after a solid first half, I felt the movie as huffing and puffing to its way to climax. Maybe things started to get a bit predictable eventhough Rosshan & Unni are introducing more complications to Madhuri’s life. Also I felt the movie has some loose ends or unexplained portions (maybe I didn’t get it) which I felt should have been taken care off. When we have a strong willed Madhuri on one side, we have a Rosamma (Anushree) who flirts with multiple men and willing to avoid them (to any extend) so that she can settle with another man. So her image is depicted someone quite opposite to Madhuri and conveying that such women exists in our society along with the weak-mute ones like Madhuri’s mum. I felt her portions in the second looked a bit ineffective and makers should have given more depth to that character to get a balance. I felt her scenes were purely and only meant for laughs. As I mentioned about the climax, its debatable. I am sure the women will applaud that scene wholeheartedly while others may find it a bit too filmy. But still the message was well conveyed with that scene.

      Manju Warrier’s towering performance is the biggest highlight of this movie. She looks really young for someone closing towards 40 and simply lived as Madhuri. Infact her performance helped the movie to cross multiple hurdles in the second half. The biggest surprise was Rosshan Andrrews as the goon who delivered a terrific performance. With minimal dialogues, Rosshan was able to convey the character without showing flaws of a debutant. I believe no one missed Joju with his performance. He performed extremely well in a rather filmy action sequence with slo mos. Anushree was dependable as Rosamma while Alencier did a good job as Gopyettan. Kumbalangi fame Grace Antony really didn’t have much to do in a poorly written character. Saiju Kurup was outstanding as S I Sreenath. Rest of the cast mainly comprised of newcomers excluding Chali Pala. The other Kumbalangi fame Sooraj Pops played an unnecessary cameo which didn’t create any impact.

      The cinematography by Balamurugan was realistic and opted for dark tones. Mostly the lighting reminded me of the one from a candlelight to convey the dark mood this movie possess. Sreekar Prasad supported the team with his experience and putting the movie under 120 minutes. I felt the song featuring Madhuri & Gopiyettan was totally unnecessary and the only flaw in the climax. The BGM by Gopi Sundar worked well with the movie.

      This is a movie meant for woman empowerment and thoroughly justified the content. But the movie did have its flaws especially in the second half where the writing wasn’t strong as compared to the first half. Still this is a movie easily watchable with Manju Warrier in full form and fury.
