Swantham Lekhakan

DID YOU KNOW? Swantham Lekhakan or Staff Reporter is based on a story called Deadline in Kalavoor Ravikumar’s book, Mohanlaline Enikkippol Bhayangara Pediyanu. The film marks a new entrant as a director, P Sukumar, who in fact is the well known cinematographer. Does anyone remember as the hero of his elder brother P Chandrakumar’s C grade masala flicks? Swantham Lekhakan also brings back Gopika, who had left the industry after her marriage, to the big screen. STORYLINE: Unni Madhavan (Dileep) is the local reporter of a modest daily, Janachintha. He finds the going tough with his meager salary and can’t devote enough time to take care of his pregnant wife, Vimala (Gopika). Things go from bad to worse when Unni has to stay at writer Palazhi Siva Sankara Pillai’s (Nedumudi Venu) place. The acclaimed writer, who had been an inspiration for Unni during his childhood days, is on his death bed. REVIEW: There is a backdrop to build on here, that of a local reporter in the late eighties, when mobile phones and modern technology hadn’t made news reporting this easy. There were no 24 hour news channels then and things were not too so cozy for the scribes.

No screenings currently scheduled.
