Director

Ranjith Sankar

Star Cast

Jayasurya, Shivada Nair

It’s evident all along in Ranjith Sankar’s Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam that you are in for a feel-good saga, with some dose of melodrama. And that is exactly what you get with Jayasurya playing Sudhi, who has lived a life of setbacks, disappointments and the gradual overcoming of it all, due to his stammering problem.

The story is being told in flashback as Sudhi, now working as a bank manager, narrates his life story to actor Mukesh, who is doing a cameo.

Sudhi is loved by his parents and has a group of friends, who doesn’t find any problem with his stammering issue. But while facing difficult situations and in the presence of strangers, he starts stuttering.

The rejection that he faces in his love life and later from a ruthless manager at the school, where he works as an accountant, makes him more depressed. He dismisses himself into his own and how he comes out of it, with the help of a speech therapist named Kalyani (Shivada Nair), takes the story ahead.

Now, it’s obvious that for any person, their shortcomings will be the prime concern. Sudhi’s story too has its moments for sure, but even if you go by the narrative, the story of the deaf and mute kid who emerges a winner and the positive attitude of the young school director with a congenital heart ailment could be more touching.

With a lazy script and predictable situations, the narrative tends to lose the pace somewhere along the line. The various scenes where Sudhi undergoes treatment under a doctor played by Sunil Sukhada reminds one of the Colin Firth – Geoffrey Rush interactions in The King’s Speech.

You are also confused about the time frame, when Sudhi is seen reviewing Chetan Bhagath’s ‘Half Girlfriend’ in his blog. The book came out last year but in the film, it appears in a flashback scene that happens several years before.

It is Jayasurya’s earnest performance that makes this film credible. He has put his heart and soul into the character. Shivada Nair is impressive too.

Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam is tailor made for those who look for old fashioned tales that tells you why only virtue wins, the kind of stories that are more seen in those tearjerkers on TV. It’s a decent entertainer at best, which could have been better.

Verdict: Above Average
