Few days back in our article, Mammotty oru vilapam we asked if by doing comedy and dance in all his movies, Mammotty is Kerala’s Rajnikanth. Mammotty is not really qualified to be Rajnikanth. If there is one man who has done the same style of movies one after the other, it is our middle-aged He Man Suresh Gopi.
All his movies have him fighting injustince, often by walking in slow motion. Then like how a spider catches it’s prey, he stuns them into silence with strong dialogues. If they are still alive, he finishes them with a gun.
The nice thing about Suresh Gopi movies are that you could walk into a movie half way through and not miss anything. And if you are feeling bad that you missed the first half, his next release would be around the corner. The actor tried to get out of this image by acting in Lanka, but somehow it sank like Atlantis. Now he has decided to stick to what he does best and so comes another movie off the conveyor belt.
George Tharian is the son of Elizabeth Mammen, firebrand political leader of yester years. It is not surprising therefore that he becomes a politician himself. Known to friends simply as GT, he has a clean image, and has the interests of the State at heart. He becomes the Industries Minister and embarks upon a spate of reforms. But this creates disquiet among his colleagues and open resentment among his opponents who are out to destroy his political career. They level a series of corruption charges against him.
Hurt by the malicious manipulations of his own party men, he resigns in a huff. But GT is not one to take things lying down. He uses innovative methods to bring his opponents to book. More than the politician, it is the technocrat in him that comes to the fore. In the end GT has the last laugh. [Synopsis]
So an industries minister resigns on the basis of a sexual allegation and comes back to prove he is innocent. Sounds familiar? Some folks think this story of former minister Kunjalikutti is produced by himself.
It was only few weeks that Suresh Gopi’s Rashtram was released in which he played a politician. We don’t know if people would want to see yet another Suresh Gopi as politician movie. In Rashtram he was Chief minister, in Pathaka he’s industries minister, that’s vareity and experimentation for Suresh Gopi.
The screenplay is done by Robin Thirumala. One of his previous works is script for Saivar Tirumeni.The movie is directed by K.Madhu, who made all the CBI Series films. He is a good craftsman and knows to make a tight film keeping good suspense.
This film does not have Mamta Mohandas, so only die-hard Suresh Gopi fans and students learning English might see it. Probably Kunjalikutti too.
