Thalirkkumbol moviedirector:Jibu Jacob After doing two back-to-back thrilling and action-based films Oppam and Pulimurgan Mohanlal has come out with an extraordinary story of an ordinary family His new film Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol which is loosely based on the Malayalam short story Pranayopanishad looks like a drag for the first 30 minutes You may also start worrying that the film is likely to put you to sleep by narrating the complex political situation of a small town in Kerala At the same time you also feel sorry for the grumpy-faced panchayat secretary Ulahannan (Mohanlal) who has a boring and routine life The film even opens with Ulahannan dozing off in a public bus to establish how uninteresting his life is One day everything changes during one such bus travel He runs into a distraction: a beautiful young lady whose husband is busy making money in the Gulf A chance encounter with Julie (Neha Saxena) rekindles the romance in him a man dealing with a mid-life crisis From that point everything in his life turns interesting and so does the film for the audience Tempted to break away from his routine life Ulahannan decides to start an extramarital affair with Julie He draws inspiration from Venukuttan (Anoop Menon) who is his neighbour and a serial philanderer In no time Ulahannan finds out he is one of several other men in Julie’s life and his affair even before it began But the romance that was rekindled in him is still fresh which helps him remember that he is married to a beautiful woman Annyamma (Meena) Ulahannan’s attempt to revive the romance with his wife that has been comatose for several years makes the film very engaging More from the world of Entertainment: Cinematographer Jibu Jacob who made an impressive debut as a director with Vellimoonga seems to have a talent at making satirical comedy In Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol the director has taken a progressive approach while showing the modern day family problems Some scenes in the film are outstanding — like the one where the husband reveals his infidelity and the wife in turn tells him about men who approached her when he had been lost in himself or children appreciating the new-found romance between the parents During the interval we are also introduced to the blooming romance in the life of Ulahannan’s teenage daughter Gini (Aima Rosmy Sebastian) Throughout the second half Gini’s character feels like a ticking time bomb as you wait with a bated breath what may go wrong in her life and affect the life of the family who has just rediscovered happiness It is because you know that Gini is in bad company The director also establishes that there is only so much that parents can do to keep their children from taking risky decisions after they come of age And it is up to Gini to decide what to do with her life However the film has a happy ending and also an important message that if the children pick a wrong person to love it is maybe because their elders failed to show them how real love looks and feels like Without an iota of vulgarity or scenes that make the family audience uncomfortable Jibu Jacob has dealt with the most controversial topic — infidelity — in the most charming way possible Everyone in the film has given a convincing performance while Mohanlal and Meena have performed their roles with maturity and nuance Don’t miss to watch this slice-of-life film unless theatres are on strike again For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related

Rafael Nadal have shared the grand slam spoils this year and it would take a hard heart not to hope for a fairytale rematch next month of their epic 2008 Wimbledon final Federer 35 prevailed in their five-set battle in Australia to win a record-extending 18th slam but sat out the claycourt season in which Nadal 31 made his own history by winning a 10th French Open title — ‘La Decima’ — and 15th slam In 2008 Nadal was just 22 He survived two rain breaks and an enthralling Federer fightback to end the Swiss’s five-year reign as Wimbledon champion to finally triumph 6-4 6-4 6-7(5) 6-7(8) 9-7 after defeats in the 2006 and 2007 finals The match at four hours and 48 minutes is still the longest final in Wimbledon history It was hailed by pundits players and fans alike with seven-time grand slam champion John McEnroe describing it as the greatest match he’d ever seen The Wimbledon seedings to be confirmed on Wednesday and Friday’s draw will determine whether the titans could meet on Centre Court in the final of the tournament which runs from July 3 to 16 for the first time since that tussle But for those who believe in omens Nadal then all pirate swagger with his long shorts long hair and sleeveless shirts won the 2008 Wimbledon title after annexing the French Open without dropping a set — a feat he repeated earlier in June “He’ll go to Wimbledon with so much confidence For me he’s favourite with Federer but Federer won’t have the confidence of coming in as French Open champion” Mats Wilander three-times French Open champion and Eurosport host told Reuters Nadal the world number two pulled out of the traditional grasscourt warm-up tournament the Aegon Championships at London’s Queen’s Club to rest up for his challenge for a third Wimbledon title while preparing in his native Mallorca “VERY MOTIVATED” He missed Wimbledon last year with a wrist injury and since he lost to Novak Djokovic in the 2011 final Nadal has had an underwhelming run with each of his four subsequent visits ending in defeat to a player ranked 100 or lower Yet Nadal gave notice of his intent after winning in Paris “I’m motivated Grass is not my speciality but I’m very motivated” he told reporters For his part Federer whose 2016 season came to an abrupt end after he lost in the Wimbledon semi-finals to runner-up Milos Raonic made a sensational start to the year He prevailed in the 35th chapter of his rivalry with Nadal in January to clinch the Australian Open — his first grand slam title since Wimbledon in 2012 — before again trumping the Spaniard en route to claiming the Indian Wells and Miami titles That run defied logic as Federer had spent the last six months of 2016 on the sidelines recuperating from a knee injury that had required surgery earlier in the season He then gave the unforgiving Roland Garros courts a miss to focus on Wimbledon and the hard court swing While the grasscourt comeback for the seven-times Wimbledon champion faltered in the first round at Stuttgart losing to German veteran Tommy Haas Federer was imperious on Sunday as he won a ninth Halle title without dropping a set all week “I was doubting myself a little bit I must admit because losing (in the opening) round for the first time in 15 years on grass was always going to shake me a little bit and it did” Federer told the ATP men’s tour website “So I’m happy to react right away and let that be forgotten and actually move on and remind myself I actually can play well on grass” And if Federer also needs a talisman from the statistics books as he heads to London how about the fact that in the years that he won his first four finals — 2004 2005 and 2012 — he also went on to win Wimbledon Could the great man now do the same in 2017 For all the latest Sports News download
