A view of the story
The movie has Jagathy as Kariyachan, an NRI who returned from Middle East to enjoy a peaceful life at home. He sets up a private bank near his house with the help of his wife Molly, who takes care of every day- today matters at home and office. His life is all immersed around his wife Molly, only daughter Teena and in their regular house hold chores .Girija Vallabha Menon (Mukesh) one of his regular clients who is into textiles business is a habitual womanizer, who runs a secret life away from his wife Sreelakshmi who is an orphan, left alone suffering the pain of childlessness. Kariyachan who is at first reluctant to follow the ways of Girija Vallabahan gradually gets changed. He accumulates modern habits and newer friends, starts dressing up like a youth in flashy costumes and spending money as newer before. These all leads the families of the two into unexpected turmoil, which forms the rest of the story.
About the performance
Jagathy Sreekumar as Zachariah performed well, and tries his best to live up to the lighter sequences. And Mukesh is in his umpteenth time playing the same role of a man who lives in falsehood and deceit makes a cakewalk through the proceedings. Urvashy as Molly wonderfully sustains and enlivens the story with controlled performance throughout the movie. Padmapriya appears beautiful but don’t have much to do. Thilakan is in his usual self providing the needed tempo to the movie.
About the direction
Venu Nagavally a versatile director and a talented actor directed the film ‘bharya swantham suhruthu’. But Venu Nagavally fails to utilize the best of the sequences in paper and manages to end up with not more than a satisfiable product.The movie has an excellent script about fooling around, treachery and related struggles, resounding in its social relevance by Cheriyan Kalpavaady. He packs the dialogues with many careful insights that is very much engaging and thought provoking. The film also includes at least a couple of unwanted songs by Alex Paul.
But in spite of all these shortcomings this film is one of the better products of the year, which will not let you completely dissatisfied.
