| A social drama set in campus emphasizing the marital issues.
Archana is a story of Meenakshiyamma's son Rajan(Madhu) and his classmate Malathi ( Sharadha ). They knew each other from college and Malathi encouraged and supported Rajan to go to higher studies and get police job. As they grew up he also developed an affection to her and decided to marry. But Malathi's father vehemently opposed the proposal and kind of locked up Malathi in their house. The story has many side acts which though are not critical but provided some of the elements to build the entire movie. This is one of Madhu's half a dozen films with Sharadha and though he looked pretty young and immature did play his part very well. Sharadha as the educated daughter of a wealthy family played with good reserve and integrity. She looked very well in simple Malayali woman's dress without the weight of many ornaments which she is normally seen. An unknown actress ( to me ) named Meenakshiyamma played the role of mother of Rajan and K.P Ummar gave a very good performance in acting . Overall the movie was good entertainment but it lacked the cohesion of a general theme and all the pieces did not fit very well together. Kumudam gave a nice dance performance with a good song. The songs were all very melodious specially the one in the lake with Rajan and Malathi on a canoe. The gave it a grade of six out of ten.
