He finds friends who share similar aspirations. With Satya becoming part of such a group, things begin to take a very different turn. Life begins to move along a totally new track for Satya and his family. Drastic things happen.
Thaniye – 15 May 2011 Sunday at 2.30 PM IST
Director: Babu Thiruvalla
Cast: Nedumudi Venu, KPAC Lalitha, Lakshmi Gopalaswami
Babu Thiruvalla’s debut directorial venture Thaniye (Alone) is a laudable film, with sterling performance by lead artist Nedumudi Venu, who no doubt is one of the greatest assets of Malayalam Cinema.
Thaniye takes us into the world of Georgekutty, an old man who is bedridden and at the edge of the grave. There are people who desire to see his end. They include Shoshamma, his son’s mother-in-law and Richie, Shoshamma’s son. They bring a home-nurse to look after him, but not with much sincerity. Their sole interest is in taking all they can from Georgekutty’s estate, including plantains, coconuts and even the money that caretaker Paappi obtains by selling the farm produce.
