A naive, industrious farmer from a village moves to the town, where he succumbs to the temptations of modern city life, moving away from his good old ways of life….
Filmmaker Blessy takes a sharp look at the pitfalls of consumerism in this earnest tale of an ordinary family lost in the whirlpool of city life. Santosh Thundiyil’s rich, textured cinematography brilliantly captures Kerala’s village landscapes to highlight the contrast with the drab metropolis.
