     13Told in flashback, this is the story of how four 
     14fine young men achieved communist political 
     15consciousness in a peasant rising against a 
     16villainous landlord in 1943 in Kerala. The men, 
     17played by Menon, Murali, Nagavalli and Ravi, 
     18receive the revolutionary word from the 
     19schoolteacher (Gopi) and spread the message 
     20among the ignorant villagers. They end up as 
     21revered heroes condemned to be hanged by 
     22the British for treason. When asked for their 
     23last wish, they all ask to see their beloved 
     24teacher once more. The story was adapted, 
     25without credit, from Niranjana’s epic novel 
     26Chirasmarane (1955). Director Rajendran later 
     27contested two general elections backed by the 
     28Kerala CPI(M), from whose viewpoint he tells 
     29this tale.
