Paleri Manikyam Oru Kolapathakathinte Kadha Malayalam Film Review

A man and a woman reaches a remote village in Kerala to enquire about the death of a woman which happened 52 years ago.As per official records the woman died of seizure,but after interviewing surviving people from that time,they reach a conclusion that it was a murder,which was suppressed by the influence of a powerful landlord.They zero in on landlord's son which leads to a surprising climax.

Mammootty in the role of detective shines,he also plays the role of landlord as well as his son.He does justice to all these roles.Siddique and Srinivasan play their roles to perfection.Director Ranjith has to be commended for taking up a subject where he had to recreate Kerala landscape of 50 years ago.He succeeds in it and is able to juxtapose the past and present and keep the viewers on the edge as far as suspense quotient is considered.There is also another angle to this where role of communist party is examined in suppressing the facts about this case in connivance with landlord.

This movie is adapted from a novel of same name  written  by T.P Rajeevan

My rating : EXCELLENT
