Film : Thilakkam
Language : Malayalam
Director : Jayaraj
Music : K. Vishwanathan
Cast : Dileep, Kavya Madhavan, Jagathy, Nedumudi Venu, K.P.A.C Lalitha, Oduvil Unnikrishnan, Salim Kumar, Cochin Haneefa, Harishree Ashokan
Padmanabhan Master (Nedumudi Venu) and his wife (K.P.A.C Lalitha) wait for Unni, their only son who is missing for many years. Young 10 year old Unni got lost in the crowd during a temple festival where he was along with his neighbor Panikkar (Oduvil Unnikrishnan). Panikkar too did not return since he decided to get back only after finding Unni. Ammu (Kavya Madhavan) is Panikkar's daughter who also believes like master and his wife that her father will return one day with Unni.
Panikkar finds Unni and brings back him to the Village. The villagers realizes that Unni is abnormal and is mentally challenged. He behaves like a small boy and creates all sorts of trouble for the villagers and his parents. He is been given Ayurveda treatment under the guidance of the church priest (Jagathy Sreekumar). Ammu looks after Unni, which her uncle's son (Nishant Sagar) objects as he loves her. But finally Unni gets back his memory only to let out the truth that he is not Unni but Vishnu, the son of a Bangalore don. Now the story takes a different track and what happens in the end is very much stale and predictable.
The problem with "Thilakkam" is that Jayaraj uses the same used ways of comedy which malayalees are used to. Dileep has to make sure he doesn't do repeated mannerisms and comedy in a film industry that is overexposed to comedy. Though He deserves credit for making the audience laugh with his body language and gestures. Kavya has just another "ornamental" role in a hero-oriented movie. The supporting cast of Jagathy, Salim Kumar, Cochin Haneefa and Harisree Ashokan all brings laughter, and on the whole "Thilakkam" is an average movie that you can watch if you are looking for time pass.
