 Ayyappanum Koshiyum – an Indian Malayalam movie

This was a crazy busy week. To relax, I moved away from my usual entertainment menu: Hollywood (English) and Indian (Tamil and Hindi movies) to a 2020 Indian Malayalam-language action-drama thriller film written and directed by Sachy. A carefully written script with an interesting characterisation of two individuals with huge egos makes the film realistic. The cast included the handsome and versatile actor Pritihivaraj with character artiste Biju Menon who live the roles of Ayyapan and Koshi. With the music blending well, it was a visual treat to watch the beautiful green landscape of Attapadi, Kerala. Outstanding cinematography that captures the rural life of Kerala, India. An exciting thriller but hardly let me relax. It was very stressful to watch as I was glued to my seat unsure of what will happen next.

Ego conflicts wreck relationships. This is a movie about two men and their egos. One, a police inspector with a mission to seek social justice. Right is right and wrong is wrong. Another, the son of an influential and wealthy landowner. From a human perspective, one may wonder why these two men are fighting with one another only to satisfy their egos with each other trying to play the game of one-upmanship. The conflict gets ugly as it gets personal with each other using the disagreement to make derogatory remarks. The entire movie reveals understanding of human conflicts.

Sometimes swallowing your pride and a simple act of saying sorry solves the problem. Unfortunately, a battle of egos prevents the resolution of disputes. Watching the movie, one may remember the famous dialogue from the Japanese Kurosawa movie Rashomon, “In the end, you cannot understand the things men do”.
