Script
&
Direction

Madhu
Warrier,
the
popular
actor
has
made
a
great
debut
with

Lalitham
Sundaram
,
which
is
a
well-written
and
conceived
family
entertainer.
Director
Madhu
and
writer
Pramod
Mohan
have
succeeded
in
narrating
the
story
of
a
dysfunctional
family
and
the
relationships
of
its
members,
effortlessly.
The
well-defined
characters
and
light
situational
humour
make
this
family
entertainer
endearing.

Even
though

Lalitham
Sundaram

has
a
very
simple
plotline
and
highly
predictable
narrative,
it
never
really
affects
the
entertainment
quotient
of
the
film.
Yes,
the
film
deals
with
a
very
familiar
story.
But
the
unconventional
characters
and
crisp
storytelling
win
here.


Performances

Manju
Warrier
has
played
Annie,
the
career
woman
who
has
a
mind
of
her
own,
to
near
perfection.
Biju
Menon,
as
always,
is
brilliant
as
Sunny,
who
has
a
tough
exterior
and
deals
with
a
lot
of
emotional
baggage.
Saiju
Kurup
(and
his
refreshing
character)
brings
life
and
some
nice
emotional
moments
to
the
film
at
the
right
time.
The
rest
of
the
star
cast,
including
Anu
Mohan,
Deepti
Sati,
Zarina
Wahab,
Raghunath
Paleri,
and
others
have
played
their
respective
roles
well.


Technical
Aspects

The
exceptional
cinematography
by
P
Sukumar
and
Gautham
Shankar
makes

Lalitham
Sundaram

a
beautiful
visual
experience.
Lijo
Paul
has
done
a
good
job
with
the
editing.

Bijibal,
the
National
award-winning
musician
has
done
a
great
job
with
the
background
score,
which
creates
the
perfect
mood
for
the
narrative.
The
songs
created
by
the
Bijibal-BK
Harinarayanan
duo
are
memorable.


Verdict


Lalitham
Sundaram

is
a
sweet,
simple
family
entertainer
that
has
some
excellent
performances
and
heartwarming
moments.
This
Manju
Warrier-Biju
Menon
starrer
is
definitely
worth
a
watch.
