VANAPRASTHAM is a malayalam(one of the Indian Languages) movie which I saw ( my first malayalam movie ever seen ) online. I heard a lot about this movie in 1999 - 2000 regarding the national level awards in India. I was ignorant that time, dint even think of knowing about the movie. But after 8 years, one day ( Nov 30th, 2007 ) after discussing about Kerala films with one of my colleague ( from Kerala ), got to see this movie online.
It was good to get the movie with subtitles. And no doubt the movie is a masterpiece. I know that the Malayalam movies are of completely natural and art kind of movies. And thats one of the reason I dint take a step to watch any of them. But believe me, now I could know how natural and artistic they are really.
You can actually get the description of this movie by clicking on name above. The entire movie is very very slow and totally based on expressions. It resembles unbelievable emotions(facts) and situations in life. This will be a treat for those type of movie lovers who would love to watch artistic movies. Mohanlal deserves the national award without any doubt. As the website specifies, its tough to find fault in his action. Stunning performance. The degree of detailed expressions is too too deep and painful.
I am happy to see the movie and appreciate it at the same time.
Movie is available at VideoDuniya for people who are interested to watch.
