Zachariayude Garbhinikal is a category-specific film telling the story of a male gynecologist and his five unusual patients that are under his care. It is a chronicle detailing the lives of mothers-to-be. It shows how some ironies are born.

Plot: Jasmine Jennifer (Geetha) is a former nun and has become pregnant at the age of 52 through artificial insemination, surviving roaring protests from the media. Saira (Sanusha) is a teenager in her late teens, but is pregnant, and is unwilling to name the father of her baby. She wants to put the baby, up for adoption. Anuradha ( Sandra Thomas The ‘Ekta Kapoor’ of Mollywood Sandra Thomas, is a >> Read More...

She is pregnant from a relationship with her boyfriend which happens to be her husband's friend also.

And the last is Fathima (Rima), a nurse at the hospital, who lies that she is pregnant to get some relief in work, from her usually strict employer. Susan (Asha Sharreth) is Dr. Zachariah's (Lal) wife, and the couple is ironical, childless. The film follows the lives of these mothers-to-be and their lives after the delivery of the baby. Will the couple remain childless forever? Will Saira's baby get a home? Will they all be happy? For the above, watch the movie.

Analysis: The movie is sweet and bright. Every character brings along with it, another baby, genre, and problems. Their lives are totally dramatic. The background stories of all characters are shown exquisitely and does a good job is providing justification to the audience for the decisions the characters make. Comic elements in infused by a growing infatuation which whips out laughter from all corners. The film has some good moments here, and a few not-so-fine moments there. It even has a few glitches in between which makes the script slightly bumming, monotonous and preachy.

The story is weaved along some predictable lines about remaining hopeful in the hours of darkness and despair for some which might be a boon for others. The presentation of the story is appealing, but the dramatic scenes sometimes tend to overdo it. This qualifies as a decent watch, for all kinds of audience.

Star Performances: Sanusha plays the teenager filled with hormones and adding the icing to the cake, being pregnant. She acts with fervor. She brings life to the feisty character she plays. Her portrayal brings all the required reactions from the audience.

Sandra Thomas plays a character who is unsure about keeping the baby or getting it aborted. Her denial and acceptance of facts, make up for a good watch. Lal as the childless doctor also e xhibits ethics and morality. He is good in a few scenes. The rest are decent in their portrayal of characters. The supporting actors too have done a good job.

What's there?

1. The ethical and moral values are shown profoundly, in the movie.

2. The acting is done by Sanusha, and the philosophy of her story is interesting.

3. The comic scenes are a great relief.

What's not there?

1. The acting by Rima and Geetha is just okay.

2. The plain dialogues tend to take away the limelight.

3. The climax is slightly overhyped.

Verdict: It can be watched one-time. But beware, since it moves along very predictable story lines, you might get bored for a few moments too. So pick your popcorn tub and make a decision.
