CINEMATOGRAPHY :ASHOK KUMAR
A Brilliant movie born out of the Bharathan-Padmarajan partnership.
THAKARA tells us the story of a mentally immatured guy (brilliantly acted by Prathap K Pothan) and his tragic romantic affairs with Subhashini , the dream girl ( acted by new comer Surekha). the character of "Chellapanaashari , played by Nedumudi Venu is also one of the most 'original' characters in the Malayalam movie.
"Thakara" is an orphan. He is energetic , happy and clean hearted. And everyone in the village exploits him in some ways , even the Subhashini exploited him in the name of love.Thakara was betrayed by the words of chellapanassary and indulges in romance with the heroine.Her father a heartless fellow (played by K.G.Menon) finds out their relation and beats him unconscious.Later his friends , aashaari and young guy finds thakaara across the shore , who is now fully filled with revenge on mathu mooppan (subhashinis fr.). Last he comes with a knife , bought with his earnings and kills mooppan . Subhashini refuses to go with Thakara , who proposes her after killing her dad. In no way to escape , Thakara finds his end infront of a running train. There are some scenes where we feel a lot of sympathy to the character of Thakara.
The scene where Thakara discovers sea ,is so touching. The romance between Thakara & Subhashini was so realistically taken by the director . Its sexy but not degrading.
a MUST WATCH movie for all who loves Malayalam Classics.
