Makal Movie Review

Yes, our movies frequently show the father-daughter relationship as a “unique bond,” but in real life, it may be difficult, especially during the adolescent years. Especially with rebellious qualities forming in the girl’s thoughts and the father being concerned about her safety, sensibility, ‘a good future,’ and other factors. Makal, a film directed by Sathyan Anthikad, depicts a father and daughter who have a troubled relationship after being apart for a long time.

Nandan (Jayaram) returns to Kerala from Dubai to be with his adolescent daughter Aparna called Appu (Devika) and wife Juliet (Meera Jasmine), who haven’t seen him in years. His arrival causes many changes to their comfortable, cozy, and ‘free’ life, especially when Nandan is forced to turn Mr Mom at a certain point and tries to be a disciplinarian. Makal demonstrates how Appu and Nandan explore the complexities of the relationship ‘without pouring extra sugar into the sugarcane juice,’ to borrow a metaphor from the film.

Many people will be able to relate to the film’s story about the difficulties of connecting or reconnecting with a parent once the links are severed for whatever cause. The parents’ affection for their daughter, a handful of visceral, weighted moments that wade through the common emotional baggage and miscommunication wrapped in feelings, the stress-stained mood, and frictions between different generations are all depicted in the film in an innovative way. Things spin out of control on and off, and the characters struggle to understand one other, especially when the ladies go through their monthly emotional zig zags, and it’s a good thing that the film addresses these issues.

All of the key performers have done well in their roles, but Naslen, who plays a young Romeo, is the one who lights up the screen with his simple presence every time. His little reactions, lines, and more are so hilarious that his presence on the screen sometimes overshadows the others. The youngster has a long way to go, and while many people have commented that his performances can be repetitious, they are nevertheless entertaining at this point. Kanmaniye, the song, is also a lovely touch to the story.

The dramatic and unexpected twist introduced into the narrative for the introduction of a new character adds some interesting intrigue midway through the second half, but the proceedings become a tad melodramatic at times. Furthermore, near the end of the story, the plot advances into a ‘Utopian’ territory where the sheer presence of someone or a few comments from someone dramatically set things right between two individuals. Forcing the plot to go through such a progression dulls it slightly.

Those who think they could enjoy the narrative of a father and daughter trying to mend a damaged relationship should give Makal a shot. And those of you who are easily moved should keep a tissue or two on hand in case certain sequences bring a tear to your eye.
