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.
