Themes and Messages

Early this year, there were talks from many Bollywood lovers and viewers that women are appearing less with fewer roles to play in films. It was a great one to see two women appearing as the protagonists in the movie. Ullozhukku explores themes of e.g., love, redemption, self-discovery. Mother-in-law Leelama and her daughter-in-law, Anju are from different generations of course but time seems to have stood still in some respect.

For instance, Leelama wanted to study medicine but her parents did not want to hear of it and went ahead to marry her off at a very young age. Anju on the other hand is a working woman – a sales girl in a shop but after marriage, she too becomes a housewife looking after the numerous needs of the family. One thing that has changed across generations is that Leelama accepted her fate with resignation and perhaps with a bit of delusion and jealousy when she talks of her ailing son Thomas and the viewers would wonder if happiness ever existed for the first time.

The first time that director Christo Tomy had a firm grip on both his craft and the understanding of the psychology of his two heroines. Anju grows from being a woman of few words, someone who suppresses her anger and disappointment to a woman who begins to speak up against the injustices done to her. At the same time, Leelama began to shed her delusions to face reality. The movie thoughtfully examines these themes, leaving viewers with a lasting impact. The messages conveyed are both poignant and profound, resonating with audiences long after the credits roll.


Ullozhukku is a must-watch movie to watch this month because of the lessons that it will impact on the viewers. Once you begin to watch the movie, it begins to leave you with the aura of captivation and certainly inspires your daily living as a viewer. With its engaging narrative, outstanding performances, and stunning visuals, this film is a true masterpiece. If you haven’t already, experience the magic of Ullozhukku on the big screen.
