P. Padmarajan

This is a timeless classic by Padmarajan that touches upon the poignant relationship between an old man and his new-age grandson, who after a long time comes for a vacation to his grandfather’s place. Padmarajan noted for his uncanny narrative style and bold storytelling maintains throughout a magical simplicity, while dealing with the emotional complexities of human nature. The portrayal of the old grandfather by legendary actor Thilakan is remarkable and the short role of Jayaram as his grandson is also memorable. Long after the film is over, the melancholic mood will haunt you.
