CAST & CREW
Oru Muthassi Gadha is the directorial venture of Jude Anthany Joseph, who had earlier directed the award-winning Om Shanti Oshana. The trailer of the film would have shown the granny of the family to be the greatest hindrance. Now let’s see what the movie has in store for us.
Rajini Chandy is quite a cantankerous old woman who is very disgruntled with everything happening around her. She has a carefree attitude and is quite a point of hot discussion in her family as well as her neighborhood. Though the women in the family pretty well cope with her quarrelling attitude it’s the men who are disturbed by her attitude. And what happens when the whole family, except her, goes for a journey? What does this change do to her? (she is in the company of another granny). Watch the movie to know.
Having credited the key role, Rajini Chandy, who debuts with this film, does a convincing job as the rowdy granny. Most of the portions of the film are shared by Chandy and another granny of the film, Bhagyalakshmi, who too is equally good in her role. Rajini Chandy stuns us with her mannerisms. Vineeth and Aparna Balamurali leave a mark with their performances while experienced actors including Lena and Suraj have done a great job. Ramesh Pisharody, Vijayaraghavan, and Rajeev Pillai have done what is required of them. The director Jude is seen in a comical role in the latter half of the film.
The happenings of the film are woven in such a way that freshness is brought to it. And here, credit must go to director Jude Anthany Joseph, who has taken utmost care in executing the film. Also, delving into the lives of elderly people in an industry which is dominated by stories of young people, is a welcome sign.
What’s not there?
People may have the worst of temperament but when they are handled properly it can soften their attitude. Watch the film to understand the veracity of this statement.
