Director Rosshan Andrrews' magic has worked again in How Old Are You. There were lots of speculations about the movie as it marks the comeback venture of actress Manju Warrier, after 14 years. She retired from films after getting married to actor Dileep. Now, the actress is back with a bang and also as per earlier reports, the film is definitely not inspired from Sridevi's English Vinglish. The movie brings out the feeling of women, who had sacrificed their life, career, wishes, everything for the sake of their beloved family; from around the world. This movie would make every woman stop and take a look at themselves for a while.
The film begins with Nirumapa Rajeev (Manju Warrier), a 36-year-old woman, working as a clerk and living a normal life with her husband and daughter. Though she had been a naughty brat in her college days, now she is a very soft mom thinking only about her family and their necessities. However, her family takes her sacrifices for granted and criticize her for the way she is. Things further worsen with them, when she faints while meeting the President of India, who got impressed by her Nirupama's daughter and wanted to meet her mom in person.
She is further devastated, when she learns that her husband and daughter have abandoned her and moved abroad for their upliftment, leaving her alone in distress. But, her friend Susane David (Kanika) changes her path and advises her to go reach her dream, which Nirupama goes behind. What happens next? Did Nirupama find her lost self with her dreams? Watch it on the big screens.
Director Rosshan Andrrews has done a pretty good job with How Old are you. This marks his first film this year. Choosing Manju for a powerful role and the faith he had in somebody who had not faced a camera for nearly 14 years, is remarkable and has paid off. R Diwakaran's cinematography is perfect. Gopi Sunder's music goes with the flow. Written by Bobby Sanjay, the film is produced by Listin Stephen under the banner of Magic Frames.
Manju Warrier - it was definitely a big loss for the Malayalam industry for missing her for 14 long years. The actress not only looks amazing, but shows that she still has the same talent with her acting skills. This is a perfect comeback venture for her. Kunchako Boban as Rajeev, looks perfect. The other actors were also equally good.
On the whole, How Old Are You is a film for women who have lost their inner self for their families' sake.
