Brilliant award winning Malayalam movie “Namukku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal” starring Mohanlal, Shari, Thilakan among others.
Its a story set in Mysore where Solomon (Mohanlal) comes to visit his mother from his farm in Kerala. On one such visit he finds a couple of girls in the neighbourhood. His interest piqued, he finds out about Sofia (Shari in a brilliant role) and falls for her.
The more he knows about her, being an illegal child of an unwed mother with a rogue for a step father Paul Palliokaran (Thilakan in an absolutely menacing and brilliant acting). Things happen between them, heats up, the rogue rapes his own step daughter. Rogue does not want his step daughter to marry this guy, as he has already agreed to a proposal from somebody else and taken their advantage.
Things come to an end with Mohanlal managing to squirt her away despite the rogue’s obstinacy, her other family members are happy and so are the Mohanlal family members.
Director Padmarajan has kept a tight script (his own script) and it got some award for cinematography as well. Shari of course deservedly won a couple of best acting awards as well. She was too good in the movie. Mohanlal as usual is quite believable in his role. IMDB 6/10
