Dishyum: Misnomer for romance
To begin with, let us get one thing straight; Dishyum is not a “dishyum-dishyum” fighting movie at all; the dishyum in the name refers to hearts clashing, not fists. Like Sasi's movies Sollamalae and Roja Kootam, this is also a musical, lyrical poem in celluloid, with romance as the foundation, superstructure and interior decoration.
“Risk” Bhaskar (Jeeva) is a stuntman in films. Cinthya (Sandhya) is an Arts Student studying sculpture. Bhaskar enters the movie with a stunt scene showing a major fire and high risk driving through the inferno. They get acquainted after an accidental meeting, continue to meet, and develop an affinity for each other. Bhaskar reveals to her the difficulties stuntmen face daily when they enact impossible acts instead of chocolate heroes. Her caring nature, innocent behaviour and affection force Bhaskar to fall in love with her. But when he realizes that the love is one-sided, he withdraws from the relationship and stops meeting her. But Cinthya calls him back and requests him to continue their platonic friendship, to which he agrees. On her part, Cinthya promises to marry him if she develops love towards him; otherwise, they would part as friends. Bhaskar then becomes a serious person and tries his level best to impress his Juliet, impress her, and thus make her accept him as her life-partner. Debut stunt-master Shakthi has done his job thoroughly and professionally; fights shown are realistic, impressive, and gut-churning.
Malar (Malavika), Cinthya's mother, is very much against Cinthya’s friendship with Bhaskar. Cynthia’s father Jayachandran (Nasser), a fire and rescue personnel, is killed while he on duty in a cylinder burst fire case. Malar naturally wants the very best for her daughter, and confirms her decision that she does not want Cinthya to marry Bhaskar. She immediately arranges Cinthya’s wedding to some other suitable groom. This leads to the suspense and climax building up, leading to the climax.
This story is sure to be a turning point in Jeeva’s career. Jeeva, son of famous producer R.B. Choudhry, made a firm stand through Raam. Jeeva continues from this point and has matured as a actor. His acting is impeccable and natural; his emoting, expressions, emotions expressed by looks, body-language – all are perfect. He is assisted by the dialogues which are crisp, racy, apt, and poetical at times. Sandhya, the heroine of Kaadhal, has given a glamorous and neat performance; she is an able foil to Jeeva’s acting; it is difficult to decide who has acted better in this movie. Malayalam actor Badhru, (the dwarf in Albhudhavilakku) raises laughs with his acting and dialogues in his vital role as Jeeva’s friend and sidekick.
Music by Vijay Anthony and cinematography by Sentonio Dersio are additional plus points in the film. All songs are melodious; background music is NOT loud, which is a major relief. Our personal thanks to Director Sasi for giving a clean feel-good movie without vulgarity, unnecessary fights or loud music. The movie has all the ingredients for a box-office hit, and is one of the best releases of 2006. Thank you, Sasi!
Do watch this clean entertainer, the season’s best!
