Here are several reasons why you shouldn’t miss Prathi Poovankozhi this International Women’s Day:
Phenomenal performance by Manju Warrier: With her powerful performance as Madhuri in the movie, Manju Warrier once again tells the industry that she is a definite contender for the title of Malayalam’s lady superstar. She effortlessly transforms into Madhuri who is humiliated by a local goon and perfects the character through her journey for revenge.
A loud social message: Directed by renowned director Rosshan Andrews, Prathi Poovankozhi gives out a well-crafted message to contemporary society. Many a time in the movie, Madhuri is asked to stop her pursuit of vengeance as the man she is following is dangerous. Madhuri’s tale glorifies retributive justice but her past justifies the same. The movie portrays the indifference women face because of a male-dominated system of immediate justice and how women are not supported by the society in their pursuit for justice.
Star cast: Prathi Poovankozhi also features amazing performances from Saiju Kurup, Anu Sree, and Rosshan Andrews. Saiju Kurup’s performance as the menacing police officer who intimidates Madhuri garnered critical applause. Rosshan Andrews the director of the movie, also plays Antappan and surprises the viewers with his acting skills.
