A Text Book on how films should be made!!!
There is not much to say when you come across a cinema like T.D.Dasan. All we can do is sit there and experience something special, outwardly being created as the frames go by.It stands tall alone above the rest above everything ever created so far in Malayalam cinema. Well like every movie, it has a beginning, a story, and an ending. its not much different when we look at it that way. there is hardly any difference. The difference comes when the story unfolds and unfolds how, into one of the finest narratives i have come across not only in Malayalam but overall and through a fresh, vibrant and compelling screenplay which is alien to the unfortunate local souls who are being fed trash year after year. Mohan Raghavan , a post-graduate in Theatre Arts from the Madurai Kamaraj University, who lived to tell this story to the world bid farewell following a cardiac arrest on 25 October, 2007. This was his debut movie and his only movie. Despite all his struggles financially as a film maker he never compromised the quality of his work and it showed in this masterpiece of his. It seemed each and every scene came directly from his heart with a warmth and divinity which is missing in the films of todays. The cast all of whom who did a splendid job essaying the down to earth and normal characters which we can find easily around us. The world through the eyes of two young children, is portrayed with such fine finesse and genuinity that the film never looses its grip, not even once along the 98 minute running time.The soul stirring background score by Sreevalsan J. Menon couldn't have been much better and breath taking than this. In a few scenes we, the audience can actually feel the pain and he emotion the characters undergo. In the end what we get is a movie that we cannot resist to love and carry with us in the mind forever as we return with wet eyes. 10 on 10 is the least i can give for such a brilliant movie.
