: Agricultural officer Sachithananda and his wife Shyama lead a happy life, and their life gets messed up when one of their friends decide to stay with them briefly.
: Onnum Mindathe might easily be watched off as a characteristic family tale with associated tensions and worries. However, what makes this earnestly-made film so likable is the simple, uncomplicated warmth about it. While switching from harmony to discord in a well-organised family, Sugeeth makes the transition appear less laborious even with all the traces of indispensable monotony that creeps into it.
Amply nourished by lush frames that present a village picture rich with golden-hued hedges, paddy fields and dusty paths laden with boulders, Sugeeth pieces together elements of trust, love and bond. He makes excellent use of two actors, who have of late struggled to render themselves lovable. Jayaram and Meera Jasmine try to reinvent themselves in a tale that might look so familiar but stands apart in a way, which is charmingly surprising. They play a husband and wife bound together by love and later finds themselves lost in an emotionally searing phase.
Sachithanandan [Jayaram] leads a life that is as picturesque as the village where he lives. A single moment of weakness puts him through smouldering days of angst, despair and frustration. His wife Shyama is caught in a crisis of existence, wherein she opts for silent suffering and rebellion, leaving scars on her husband that fester with each day.
Both Jayaram and Meera do the roles with respect for the characters they enact. They love their characters, suffer with them and rejoice immeasurably in the newly-found union. Manoj K Jayan who plays a flirtatious middle-aged NRK accomplishes his job with ease. He maintains a playful glint in his eyes and a boyish smile on his lips, letting himself off the hook completely and his words almost dripping with syrupy sugar.
This movie has its share of tears, sighs and lengthy confessions of guilt and sharp admonition. Sugeeth manages to wrap these essential elements in a good-natured humour with a consistency that is sustained right through the length of the film.
passes off leaving the feel of a cool breeze.
