Bhoothakkannadi is an account of closeness, the pain of loss, and the vulnerability of the human mind when faced with senseless events. Vidyadharan is a clocksmith living with his daughter. His wife has died of a snakebite long ago, but the love of his youth, Sarojini, lives next door with her own daughter. Life goes on, until one day Sarojini's daughter becomes victim to a senseless act of violence and Vidyadharan begins to lose the soundness of his mind. The magnifying glass, used as a clocksmith's instrument, becomes Vidyadharan's window to a world which looks completely different from before. Bhoothakkanadi is the very promising first direction by A K Lohithadas, known before for his scripts and screenplays for theatre and film.
