Thanmathra

Brilliant Malayalam award winning “Thanmathra” starring Mohanlal, Meera Vasudevan, among others.

Rameshan (Mohanlal in a brilliant role) is a government employee happy with his small family of wife and two kids. He starts getting memory lapses that progresses into more severe problems and embarrassment for him and family. Finally it is diagnosed as Alzheimer with no cure (as usual in movies – diseases have no cure at all).

How the family copes up with his situation and how he degenerates slowly and slowly makes up for the rest of the movie. Mohanlal has done a super role as the affected person though i thought with a better director, he could have been made to go down still lower and bring out his best.

Of the supporting cast, Nedumadi Venu as the father of Mohanlal has essayed a brilliant role as the distraught father and Meera Vasudevan as the grieving wife. IMDB 6/10
