Storyline of Mangalyam Thanthunanena 2018
Mangalayam Thanthunanena is a humorous film based on the marital relationship between Roy and Clara. Roy comes home from Dubai for his wedding when he learns that he has been retrenched from his company due to economic recession. After initial days of their marriage, Roy begins to face major financial crisis. The movie revolves around the events that unfold following this crisis and how he manages to sort things out. It beautifully throws light on the elementary principles of marital life , the importance of money management and how the two are entwined.
Director Soumya Sadanandan’s ambitious debut feature film, Mangalyam Thanthunanena (Marriage Heads to Pandemonium), based on the chronicles of a fresh matrimony life (especially in Kerala) is relatable to the core but is only letdown by its amateur screenplay and sketchy, cliched comedy. I am actually impressed by the lead actors’ – Kunchacko Boban and Nimisha Sajayan – performances more than anything in the film which goes on and on about a husband’s dependence on his wife’s not-so-much riches. He often finds himself at the mercy of his wife’s gold ornaments which he pawns to get rid of his overgrowing debt that could one day bring permanent turmoil to their matrimony. How the characters develop their future together might make for a great watch for today’s husbands but for me, it just is a haphazard comedy drama about the institution of marriage that stops being fun after the 20th minute. The comic relief by Hareesh Perumanna is noteworthy and so is the annoying performances by Shanthikrishna and Molly Kannamaly. If you are a couple already in matrimony or looking forward to it, get a whiff of Sadanandan’s product and you will get a fair idea how marriage sometimes works. But don’t believe everything it says.
