Straight Angle™: Manichittiraththazhi!!
Saturday, August 07, 2004


Out from Manichittiraththazhi- a malayalam film by Fazil- wonderfull movie to tell the least. The film was made sometime in 1980's I think and the story line considering the time period is amazing. The story starts off with a village in Kerala- and a house- sort of daunted house and no one wants to live in that house. The owners of the house also dont live in that and then the Hero- Suresh Gopi comes along with his wife- Shobana. Actually he is the nephew of the owners of the house and he decides to stay there. His wife Shobana who was born in Kerala but brought up with Kolkata also stays with him in the daunted house. There are several rooms in the house and the rooms in the southern side of the house are locked with sacred threads. No one is allowed to open the doors.
The story behind the locked doors is that, those rooms were used by their ancestors(Diwans) and one of them had a mistress who is from Tamilnadu. She was a dancer and she had an affair with another dancer- The Diwan comes to know of this and kills her. Then certain mysterious things start happening in the village and people beleive this is because of the soul of the Dancer. So, the diwan brings in priests, does some poojas and then lock the spirits in the room. Actually the male dancer with whom the Mistress had an affair lived just in the next cottage which can be seen from the balcony of the room.
Immediately on coming to the house, all of hero's relatives tell him not to open the rooms. But the female goes ahead and opens the door and what follows is the story. For all those who thought this was another Ghost story- think again.This isnt that. This is more to do with MPD- Multiple Personaltiy Disorder. The lady herself suffers from this and isnt known till the very end. Nice story line and excellent Screenplay. Very good Malayalam movie after a long time.
