Malayalam film Clint directed by Harikumar, is based on the life story of Edmund Thomas Clint.
Director Harikumar's main focus seemed to be make a typical emotional drama based on the boy's life; So, we have sequences showing the "happy days" (including a couple of songs) followed by many scenes showing the boy's battle with illness, and his last days when he talks to his parents about his impending death. These scenes, especially the climax scenes, are extremely touching, and would make the viewers feel for the child prodigy. However, I wished that the director had attempted to make a film that went beyond the tragic aspects of Clint's life and tried something different than the straight-forward, TV-serial sort of narrative style used in the film. Nevertheless, the film is touching for its content, and Master Alok, who acts in the role of Clint, has given a very natural performance in the role.
