Watched Malayalam film Udaharanam Sujatha, starring Manju Warrier in lead role.
The film is a "faithful remake" of Nil Battey Sannata, a "feel-food" Hindi film which focused on subjects like "sacrifices parents make for their children in the Indian society", education for girls, and women's empowerment. The director, Phantom Praveen, has reproduced even the slightly awkward scene from the original film, in which the central character goes to meet the District Collector to enquire about "the college which teaches to become a Collector". The director has added some touches of Malayalam through some nice music and songs, which I liked.
Though the "Thiruvanandapuram accent" of Manju Warrier and the actor who played as her daughter were a bit inconsistent, their performances were excellent, and in the dramatic and emotional scenes near the climax, Manju Warrier brings the requisite intensity in her performance to make those scenes moving.
