19(1)(a) Movie Summary

When a revolutionary writer leaves the manuscript of his unpublished novel with an obedient lady (who could be anyone) who runs a photocopy business, her routine life is turned upside down. The title of the film alludes to the following: (1) All citizens shall enjoy the right (a) to freedom of speech and expression, according to Article 19(1) of the Indian Constitution of 1949.

19(1)(a) Movie Review

Article 19 (1) (a) of the Indian constitution gives all citizens the right to free speech and expression. But do we all have the freedom to do so? Or are we all caught up in a variety of systemic conditions, prejudices, hierarchies, and moralities?

Indu VS’s debut film, which recounts the story of a woman who has succumbed to the monotony and duties of her life, brilliantly attempts to break the quiet in society.

It presents Nithya Menen as the owner of a photocopy shop who leads a very mundane life in a film that refuses to name its key character. When her father one day quits everything in his life due to the shame of failing to react to his wife’s phone call on time and losing her, she is fine with stopping her studies and taking responsibility for her family. She respects her father’s emotions, her friend’s powerlessness in having to say “yes” to a marriage proposal, and a man who leaves a manuscript to make copies, promising to return by night.

He never comes back. As she waits for the money from these copies to fix her old photocopier, word of his death spreads. He was Gowrishanker, a revolutionary writer who fought against the system and injustices. His unpublished manuscript of his final work is left with her, along with his final words, ‘do as you wish.’ Her journey of self-discovery as she reads through his words and perspectives is the highlight of the film.

The picture moves like a song, with enigmatic imagery, appropriate music, and seamless scripting conveying thoughts to viewers about the state of one’s freedom. The unnamed female protagonist in the film establishes a sense of detachment while the audience observes the story unfolding in stages, giving the impression that it might happen to anybody. It also demonstrates the significance of one’s participation in the community to one’s identity.

One is reminded of the progressive journalist Gowri Lankesh, who was murdered dead outside her Bengaluru house by fanatics, as well as book restrictions on writers such as Perumal Murugan. What makes it more engaging is the film’s languid pace, which is complemented by Manesh Madhavan’s watercolour-painting-like photography and Govind Vasantha’s music. Contrary to the famed extended impassioned ones we normally see in Malayalam movies, there are quietly embedded debates on colorism, racism, climate change, nature, and even marital choice. It’s worth mentioning the father and daughter passages.

Nithya Menen gives an outstanding performance as the protagonist who tells the story of the film. She quickly adopts the role of the shy, intellectual, capable, and responsible villager. As the film progresses, she, like the audience, matures into a confident woman. Vijay Sethupathi, Indrajith, Athulya Ashadam, and Srikant Murali have all played important roles.

Indu VS’s debut film guarantees that Malayalam cinema will see more of her with engaging stories and filmmaking technique. As a female director, she also attempts to introduce a new narrative style devoid of the structural standards and masala essential for commercial markets.

The film is intended for film buffs who want to see through cinema, delve deep into the enigmatic nature of the medium, and appreciate the film’s beauty in all aspects. Words, views, experiences, and writing should be powerful.v
