Ilayaraja Movie Review
“It isn’t necessary for one to win all the competitions. One has to anyway fail for the other to win, and every failure will teach you a lesson,” says Vanajan to his son, after returning from a prestigious chess match, while the sun sets in the backdrop. Playing any game including chess and even memorising the spellings of English words were just a way of managing the kids for the vertically-challenged Vanajan (Guinness Pakru) and his ailing wife. However, they never knew it would reap rewards amid their financial struggles.
Vanajan is a peanut vendor and lives with his wife, his dad and two children. As he is vertically challenged, he is supported by his children to sell peanuts and make a living. His wife is unwell, and his dad (Harisree Ashokan) helps her in household chores. Her sickness has put them in a financial crisis and Vanajan has borrowed money from a loan shark named Mathai (Anil Nair). The Shylock begins to torture them by demanding the money back and at Vanajan’s home, he finds a chessboard and there comes the twist in the story.
However, being the maker of Melvilasam and Apothecary, Madhav could have worked more on the script by making it taut and crisp. The second half confuses the audience a bit, despite having some good performances.On the whole, the movie will be a treat for Malayali viewers as it has magnificently captured the essence of lives and the nature around.
