Sexual harassment and reactions
" Prathi Poovan Kozhy" Malayalam movie.
Rosshan Andrrews ( ya, that's how he, spells his name) and Manju Warrier combination, yet again, to confront the social menace of sexual harassment at public places.
Manju come alive as Madhuri, a low socioeconomic status spinster, working hard at a textile shop, to make the family's ends meet.
The story-event starts, as she gets groped in a bus. Her agitated mental mood to take revenge on him, takes us through the presentation.
'Sankadam' - Unni R's story being picturized for our entertainment. Director Rosshan did a credible job in direction and as the antihero, his debut acting. Background music is commendable to keep the feel of the movie. Anusree as Manju's friend, is the cause for, all situational comedies, comical interludes.
7.5 on 10 for this social satire.
Manju as the bold Madhuri, the lone fighter against the male patriarch society, as the lead in the presentation, did an excellent job... was reminded of her work in the movie "Kanmadham".
Screenplay is so flimsy, superficial and at times over dramatic. Sub-Inspector enacted by Saiju Kurup was portrayed as a petty jester and Alencier, the seasoned actor was brought in for a superficial role.
Sexual harassment at work places or in public should be curtailed. Groping , unwanted comments, ogling stares all amounting to humiliation and mental discomfort of the victim, but a common scene, of this male chavnistic society.
Rosshan-Manju combination, ' How old are you ? ' was able to create an social awareness about kitchen gardens. I hope this movie will be a wake up call, for all chavnistic pigs, who presume, the fairer sex are meant for their fondling.
Give due respect to the fairer sex, Otherwise they react back, taking cue from this presentation. The devilish, gratifying smile on Madhuri's face, during the climax scene is clear warning for the harassment specialists.
