Aami” is the biopic of popular Malayalam writer Kamala Das. Manju Warrier plays the titular role. Murali Gopy, Anoop Menon, Tovino Thomas, Rahul Madhav, KPAC Lalitha, Jyothikrishna, Anjali Nair, Vinaya Prasad, Balachandran Chullikadu, Renji Panicker, Valsala Menon and Sreedevi Unni are in the star cast along with Manju. “Kamal” directed the film. Raphael Thomas Pozholiparambil produced the film. Background score is by “Bijibal.” The song composition is by “M Jayachandran” and Taufiq Qureshi. Madhu Neelakandan cranked the camera and Sreekar Prasad is the editor.

Plot

Aami that is inspired from Kamala Das’ biography Ente Katha, just portrays how a woman longs for love and affection. The film also portrays how Kamala converted to Islam. Kamala grew in Mumbai and Kolkata and she is married to Madhava Das, who is 20 years elder than her. While getting married, Aami (yes, she is also called by this name apart from Madhavi Kutty and Kamala) was just 15 years. Yes, it is child marriage. Watch the film in the theaters to get the right essence of the film.

Star Performance

Manju takes up the role after Madhavi Kutty delivers her first child. She exposes her brilliance in acting and gets appreciation from the audiences. In fact, she should thank Vidya Balan for walking out from the project. If she hadn’t quit the film, Manju wouldn’t have got such a wonderful role in her lifetime. Malavika, who played the 15-year-old Madhavi Kutty was also fine with her expressions. Anoop Menon and Murali Gopy have done what is needed.

Analysis

Kamal has penned the screenplay well. Madhavi Kutty faces a lot of controversies in her life including an attraction towards a person other than her husband and converting to Islam. Kamal showed the feelings of Kamala Das in two halves. In the first half, Kamala’s relationship with her husband is shown and in the second half, her attraction towards Akbar Ali is depicted. Although this seems to be controversial, Kamal had taken it neatly. The music, cinematography and editing are just superb.

What’s There?

  • Performance of Manju, the show stealer
  • Kamal’s screenplay, execution and the star cast
  • Technical values and production values are good

What’s Not There?

  • Kamal didn’t explain how Madhavi Kutty became a writer

Verdict

Aami showcases the acting talent of Manju. This is definitely a lifetime role for her. Although there are some minor flaws and unanswered questions, the film is definitely a one-time watch!
