     17Controversial film because of its alleged 
     18exploitation of the well-publicised suicide of 
     19the Tamil actress Shobha. When a poor Kerala 
     20family moves to Madras, their young daughter 
     21Shanthamma becomes the teenage film star 
     22Lekha (Nalini). However, the young girl hangs 
     23herself. The film recounts the events leading up 
     24to her decision, including a stint as a prostitute 
     25and the merciless exploitation she suffers from 
     26her alcoholic father (Varghese) and her pushy 
     27mother (Subha) as well as from her 
     28professional colleagues, esp. from her lover, 
     29the unhappily married Suresh (Gopi), a director 
     30of art-house films. The film depended heavily 
     31on the real-life events and characters to whom 
     32it alluded, while continuing the director’s 
     33fascination with the thriller format (Yavanika, 
     341982).
