Thirakkatha : Some Questions


 ( Non Mallu readers please Excuse! )

I went for this movie last night. And the thoughts about the theme were still haunting me. To be frank it was an average movie with a different plot. Renjith deserves an applause for making this film. But what really makes this different is , it is based on Malayalam Film Industry. It spans across 3 decades of Malayalam Film Industry. The characters seems to have similarities with real Actors. Ok, The story is like this, ….  For those who dont want to read the story – Stop here!  Anyway , I am not telling the complete story.

The basic story is about an actor’s career from a Villian to SuperStar. He was introduced to the Film as an Anti Hero who loves the Hero’s Girl friend. Hero , Heroine and Anti-hero are freshers! Struck something? Yea.. Manjil Virinja Pookal.  He later married the heroine in real life and somehow they got split. The Anti Hero had the look and mannerisms of MohanLal . He later became superstar and the heroine was into mother roles. The climax is the re – entry of the heroine as a cancer patient after struggling with some low profile roles. Priyamani made the heroine role excellent. She did justice to the role.

So, what we all thought after seeing the movie was, why the central character was portrayed as Mohanlal? The heroine, supposedly a film version of SriVidya who was a victim of breast cancer had a story like this? As far as I know, Mohanlal was not linked to Srividya. But why the film made us think like that? Just because of its a film? The makers of course meant Srividya in Priyamani. That’s what this poster says,

But why MohanLal?? Any answers?

  • Anything is possible in movies, I guess that’s why! 😀

    IT’s Renjith’s movie right? He might just have done that too add an element of fiction.

    And, forgive me if I sound a tad too punctilious, bro, but it’s “heroine” not “heroin”. The meaning gets transformed without the “e”. 😀

  • The hero is portrayed as both Mohanlal and Mammootty. During the climax, he is shown as Mammooty (The film poster says Rudiram).

    And the story is loosely taken from Srividya’s lifestory. It is not a complete adaptation of her life.

  • hehe! Mohanlal is linked to a number of heroines!! Why not Sreevidya too? 😛

    But jokes apart, I think those guys just wanted people to enjoy the fun in correlating the characters and the familiar faces 🙂
    No intention of linking their actual lives, i guess..

    Wow! Mohanlal can sue them for damaging his public image!!! 😉

  • @ Hari Shanker : Its fiction ofcourse! But why he wanted Mohanlal to be a part of it , is my question! I have this in my side bar 😛
    ” Subjected to Typos and Grammatical errors.. Please use your common sense! :)” . So I am excused! Usually I wont check for typos! Anyway thanks for pointing it out! A e can make a huge change there 😉

    @ Thoma : That poster is the only thing that can be related to Mammooty if I am right.
