(6 years ago)
Thattathin Marayathu which released on 6th July, 2012, has a cult status now. The movie which was made on a budget of 1.9 crores, has collected almost 24 crores from box office.
The story revolves around Vinod Nair (Nivin Pauly), who is from a poor family. He falls in love with Aisha (Isha Talwar), who is from a rich influential Muslim family.
Director Vineeth Sreenivasan tries to bring these to people from opposite segments of society. Vinod and Aisha appear affable and loving as lovers. The story starts with Vinod locked up in jail for trespassing.
When police sub-inspector Prem Kumar (Manoj K Jayan) realizes that Vinod went to meet Aisha when he was caught for trespassing, he requests Vinod to tell his love story.
Vinod then starts to reveal his story to him. How he meet her, how he lost his heart.
The cinematography by Jomon T John is good. Musician Shan Rahman's melodies are also heart rendering.
