Sunny Hegde’s new flick, Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam, brands itself as a Made in Kanhangad ‘Product’. And, with the local dialect, screenplay, locations, and many more local elements, it lives up to this tag. The director has given his soul in bringing out the portrayal of relationships and underlying tensions with a tinge of humor.
The main protagonist of the story is Suja (Anagha Narayanan), is being forced to get married to an NRI. Her father, Vijayan (Manoj KU), a Kuwait returnee always wanted to sweep the ‘shame’ of his elder daughter Surabhi’s (Unnimaya Nalappadam) marriage to someone of her choice slashing her father’s dreams. For Vijayan, Suja’s marriage was the only hope to show off his lost name in society. Things take a turn when Suja’s plan was unveiled.
The whole story revolves around a couple of days at Vijayan’s home. The only characters in the movie are the relatives who came for the function and the workers who came for the arrangements. Most of these characters were portrayed by fresh faces who debossed with their performances irrespective of the screentime.
Overall, Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam is a small movie entrenched in Kerala’s local lifestyle portraying the tensions in relationships with a tinge of humor.
