With a school strength of less than 50 students and teachers busy with their own businesses, not interested in academic activities forms the basic setting for the movie.
Punyam Aham had Prithviraj and Samvrutha Sunil playing the leads, but this time Raj Nair is on the lookout for a real Kathakali artist.
“Kathakali is not a mere backdrop in Vyadha, the film portrays the art form in all its glory and authenticity.
He steals the limelight from the other performers with consummate ease by living the role of a regretful teacher who doesn’t mind admitting that he is wrong.
Saleem kumar, KPAC Lalitha, Nedumudi Venu and Bindu Panikker have come up with decent performances. People are really good and susceptible to change in Mohanan’s film.
Vyadha will be my own grief mouthed through the hero,” he adds.
Samvritha Sunil - Akhil Jayarajan marriage date has been fixed to 1st November 2012.Gauging the story of Manikyakkallu- the new film directed by M Mohanan (the man who impressed us with Kadha Parayumbol four years back), starring Prithviraj and Samvrutha Sunil – left me pondering over a lot of things.But at the end of the day, what Mohanan has given us is a typical clichéd flick on the lines of “chitrasalabhangalude veedu” and few other movies which dealt with a similar subject: student teacher realtionship.Today we live in this information superhighway that such things totally go missing.Contemporary Kerala is slowly regressing to some dark past and I think it’s often reflected in everything around us including art.He single handedly carries the film on his shoulders.
