Udaharanam Sujatha review- An ode to motherhood


Phantom Praveen

Star Cast

Manju Warrier, Anaswara Rajan

Debutantdirector Phantom Praveen’s UdaharanamSujatha is the remake of Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's brilliant Hindi movie Nil Battey Sannata, which incidentally was remade in Tamil as Amma Kanakku. 

SujathaKrishnan (Manju Warrier) is a widow, who earns a living, working as a housemaid. Her daughter Athira (Anaswara Rajan) has just entered Class X and she hasbig dreams about her child. But Athira is a lazy student, who believes that sheis destined to become a house maid just like her mother, when she becomesolder.

As per theadvice of a writer named George Paul (Nedumudi Venu), Sujatha does somethingunconventional. She joins the same class where Athira is studying, as astudent, to help her daughter in her studies.

She doeswell her in studies, amidst all the work that she has to do on a daily basis,but her daughter doesn’t like it at all. Athira takes it as an insult asSujatha doesn’t know what to do next, as her daughter becomes a rebel.

It’s not aneasy story to tell, but the director has presented it all in an affecting way.Though the going is a bit slow paced during the first half, everything fallsright on track in the second half. And then you can watch it probably withmoist eyes.

With abrilliant show, Manju Warrier leaves the audiences spellbound, performing hercharacter convincingly. Her style and body language is perfect and she scores really well in emotional scenes. AnaswaraRajan, who plays her daughter, delivers an impressive performance with so muchconfidence.

Udaharanam Sujatha could be more enjoyable for those who haven’tseen the original or the Tamil version, but that doesn’t take away the meritsof this one. Enjoy this cute little gem and not forget to carry some tissues towipe tears, as you head to the cinemas.

Verdict: Honest and genuine
