Most favourite...

My most favourite movie is Chemmeen (directed by Ramu Kariat , 1965) starring Satyan, Madhu, and Sheela. This movie is based on a novel by Thakazhi. There are some ever-green songs in this movie, composed by Salil Choudhury.


Chemmeen centers around an arrogant and ambitious fisherman, Chembankunju, whose only aim is to own a boat and net. Sacrificing the little joys and pleasures in life, he succeeds in buying a boat and net with the help of Pareekutty, a young Muslim trader, on condition that the fish hauled by the boat will be boat will be sold to him.

Chembankunju's daughter, Karuthamma, and Pareekutty love each other deeply. Their love violates social taboos. Karuthama, realizing the futility of their love, forsakes her love for Pareekutty and marries Palani, an orphan discovered by her father.

In time, Chembankunju becomes greedy and heartless. He breaks his promise to Pareekutty and refuses to sell him fish. He drives Pareekutty to bankruptcy and ruin. Chembankunju even forsakes his friends. After his wife's death, he marries Khaki, a widow of rich woman from whom he bought his first boat.

Meanwhile, Karuthamma endeavors to build a happy home. She remains loyal and faithful to Palani. But, rumors about her love for Pareekutty spreads through the village and haunts Palani. Palani's friends ostracize him and refuse to take him fishing. Karuthama swears her fidelity to Palani, who believes her and goes fishing alone.

While Palini is at sea, the Karuthamma and Pareekutty meet by chance. Old passions are awakened and they join in a forbidden embrace. Meanwhile, out at sea Palani encounters rough seas while trying to bait a shark. The ancient code is defied and the Goddess of the Sea exacts a terrible revenge.

See the picture that won the coveted President of India's Gold Medal in 1965. See the movie that redefined Malayalam cinema and remains to this day as fresh as ever.
