Hi all,

Let me first clarify that I cannot do justice to Nandalala movie or its creator by reviewing it, because it is a movie par excellence. So, I just want to share my experience about this movie. Director Mysskin who has proved his mettle by making films like Chithiram Pesuthadi and Anjaadhey is back with a bang. He is one of the very few directors who can get rave reviews and also pull crowd for his films and this movie is no different.

The movie starts off with two kids looking out for their respective mothers who had left them for different reasons. One kid is Akhilesh (Master Ashwath Ram), a school student, who needs to see his mother just to hug and kiss her once. The other kid is Bhaskar Mani(Mysskin).I call Bhaskar Mani a kid because he is mentally challenged and
nandalala
he needs to see his mother to slap her and know why she left him alone in a mental asylum and never returned. The rest of the story is about how they both get together and the journey in search for their mothers. During the journey, they encounter various interesting people. There are many heart warming scenes involving those people.

I cannot even imagine anyone else playing the role of Bhaskar Mani instead of Mysskin. I feel that Mysskin clearly understood that he cannot rope in anyone for that powerful role created by him and do justice to that role. Hence, we got actor Mysskin. Mysskin has lived in that role and also directed the film with ease. Master Aswath Ram has essayed his role beautifully with neat expressions. Snigdha has played her brief role convincingly.Ilayaraja has proved yet again why he is the Maestro. His music and voice are very soothing and prove to be a boon for the movie.

There is no surprise in the fact that this movie was lying in the cans for more than a year. After all, even diamonds are buried deep inside the earth's surface for several years before they are taken out. This movie is as precious as a diamond and even more. Hats off to director Mysskin for giving us this wonderful film in spite of facing all the ordeals in releasing this film.

Cheers,
Sai Shyam G.
