Oruthee Story


The movie starts with Radhamani (Navya Nair), a ticket collector in a Kochi Government boat. She is the central character of the movie. In the story, we see Radhamani finds it difficult to meet her family’s needs as her husband (Saiju Kurup) is in the middle-east with thousands of job seekers with a broken arm. Her family consists of two school-going children with her husband and an elderly mother. Radhamani’s life gets harder when her daughter catches food poisoning and she needs to admit her to the hospital. However, as the hospital expenses are increasing, she decides to pledge her gold necklace and take out a loan. Later, Radhamani realizes that the necklace doesn’t have the amount of gold as it should be. On account of it, the gold loan is denied. From here, her life takes new turns. Whatever comes out layer by layer is quite shocking and interesting. What will happen next? How does she deal with the situation? Will fate decide in her favor? These questions will only be answered if you watch Oruthee. 

Why should you watch Oruthee?

Navya Nair in her comeback movie has stolen the show. She shines in the character of Radhamani. She has very well depicted the real-life inspired story of a middle-class woman. The screen presence of Vinayakan as a police officer shakes up the whole scenario. S Suresh Babu’s script will make you feel bound with the characters of the movie as these are presented to give you a lively and thrilling experience. Although, the ending is quite predictable but enough satisfying to connect with Radhamani and her tragedy. There are such moments in the film which can make you think about; how a commoner has to go through such difficulties? The film also raises some questions about the purity of the products. To what extent, can the life of a commoner be affected? 

In some scenes, the film deserves respectful applause which makes us remember the woman on whose life the movie is based. The intense background score with cinematic elements helps the characters in every portion. The songs fit the situation. The direction of Mr. V K Prakash and the excellent cinematography of Jimshi Khalid adds the approach for the audience to adopt the root of the storyline. 

Oruthee is an excellent piece of drama in Malayalam cinema that leaves its marks on the audience. It is worth watching cinema to praise the performance of all the characters too. The movie was released on 18 March 2022 in theatres.
