There are not many movies which inspires like Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam. Yes, Malayalam movies have had motivation flicks which have worked, but this one has managed to come up with a life of its own, and the same has provided it a status high above Punyalan Agarbathis as far as the connectivity for the common man is concerned. The other inspirational movie, My God just worked less for the viewers, and none of the others like Rani Padmini and Mili were kept this simple, and the strength of its simplicity will surely amaze you. It is a quality that the movie can cherish.
Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam is not the kind of inspirational movie which is made for the kind of people who enjoy individuality by traveling all around the world, finding love of lust and changing himself in the end like a psycho who is against the society – here, it is a lot about being part of the society as an individual. As it continues to run in a number of theatres and will make a comeback to other screens due to the quality of its idea and content, lets look at some of the reasons why this one works so well, and a special addition, the twist comes in the end related to a birthday!
Among the reasons that you find for watching this movie, there will always be Jayasurya, the man who does the role of the main character Sudi/Sudheendhan – he has also co-produced the movie here. There are not many actors who could have done this role with such perfection. As most of you have noticed, here he plays the role of a man with a stammering problem which affects his life. May be the problem could be brought to the screen well, not with such effectiveness as we can see in this movie. He is amazingly good in this flick as the titular character.
Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam is at its best as the inspirational movie because it tells the viewers that all of them can, and it says that idea without any doubt. This inspiration is not radically focused on a certain thing, but on the individuality which is the thing where all the attention happens be. Here, the change begins when accepting oneself as another person and not someone else to whom the comparison is made. Being better or like someone else is never the idea of this movie, and the protagonist himself clearly states that point relating to his life.
For the same reason, the feel-good factor here is stronger than that of many other movies, and in all its simplicity, Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam leaves you with the much needed happy feeling – there is absolutely no negativity around. It is not that easy to spread happiness, but the director Ranjith Sankar has done that without any moments of trouble. It is his success, just as it was for most of his previous movies. As the character itself is safe in the hands of Jayasurya, the feel-good factor works fine along with the inspiration that this movie provides.
So, the special addition to this post is that yesterday, December the thirteenth was the birthday of one of two main actresses in this movie, Swathy Narayanan. Even though she can’t be considered as the heroine of the film with her appearing with the flashback running strong and disappearing along with the first half of the movie, she makes a fine debut here. There are not many better movies to make a debut than a successful inspirational feel-good movie, as such flicks have special place in the minds of the viewers. With the cuteness factor heavily working in favour of her, she does her job very well as expected of her.
An Ayurveda Doctor by profession, she is also a skilled dancer, as we could understand from her appearance during the Lunar’s Comedy Supernite program in Flowers channel. She made that episode a charming one. She has the skills, and so I would like to wish her a happy birthday even though belated, and also wish her all the success in her upcoming projects. She has only bigger heights to achieve in her career. Swathy is the lady in the last poster used in this post.
