     13Frontier melodrama about Kerala’s Thazavad 
     14manorial system which is based on matrilineal 
     15kinship. Sreekrishna (Venu), the brother of the 
     16Madambipura House’s leader, Yashoda, is 
     17extremely friendly with his servant Manikan 
     18(Mohanlal). Another servant, Appikala, envious 
     19of Manikan’s favoured status, is the film’s 
     20official villain. The Madambipura House is 
     21locked in an ancestral rivalry with the equally 
     22large establishment run by Ganjimuda 
     23Gandhari, which usually finds expression in 
     24the bullock cart race at the annual Pongal 
     25festival. Both Sreekrishna and Manikan fall in 
     26love with the beautiful itinerant theatre actress 
     27Karuthambi (Shobhana), causing Manikan to 
     28briefly fall out of favour with both Yashoda and 
     29the local law. The film’s camerawork adopts 
     30the glossy style (diffusers and angled lighting 
     31calibrated to the exposure of high-speed colour 
     32stock) made fashionable by Tamil 
     33cinematographer P.C. Sriram. Shot mostly at 
     34dawn and dusk, the camerawork creates a 
     35glittering fantasy world that in turn determines 
     36both plot and performances.
