Ore Kadal

Every person is an island in some ways. The amount of water surrounding the land mass is what makes an individual. Swimming in a sea of poverty and despair, housewife Deepthi (Meera Jasmine) finds herself drawn to an isolated man, Nathan (Mammootty), who knows not how to love. The question she is faced with is if one can swim to all islands or are there some that always appear on the horizon.

The film based on Sunil Gangopadhyay’s novel, "Heerak Deepthi" has Shyamaprasad behind the lens. The man in my opinion is one of the few remaining shining lights in the Kerala film industry. Though it does help to have a brilliant cast and outstanding script but it takes a genius to make it all come together seamlessly.
