| All time classic
A sensitive portrayal of a mature love story which is lyrical and poetic as the music of the film. It is the most influential films of its era and still is called the greatest love story told in malayalam. Mohanlal takes acting to a greater level with his riveting performance and débutante Shari is fresh and appealing. This is a film which needs to be preserved and re- released because the true value of it is yet to be realised.THe script is very detailed and brings out the intrinsic lifestyle of the kerala catholic syrian Christian. The screenplay is the king just like all of director Padmarajan's other concepts and this is the best of his work closely followed by Thoovanathumbikal. The dialogues are crisp and powerful with a local touch. The music is still popular and the songs are very meaningful. The entire screenplay is worked around Solomon's songs from the bible and it keeps referring to the vineyards of solomon. The film is based on K Sudhakaran's novel and is the a great adaptation to the English translation which mean vineyard for us to dwell. What amazes me is after reading the novel by K Sudhakaran I understood that the screenplay of this film is based on the events that are not mentioned in the book. It traverses a path that exists but is not mentioned in the book. Thats the beauty of padmarajan's work. You need to read the book and see the film to unravel the film in totality.
