As I said in my earlier post, there are some characters which stay on in your mind for a long time. One such person here is Clara portrayed by Sumalatha. Another beautiful character created by P Padmarajan, with lots of mysteries, beauty and love.
Why Clara left Jayakrishnan (Mohanlal) will be a question asked by every person who has seen that movie? Why Pappetten made her to go away from all the promises that Jayakrishnan offered and that too after breaking the small small vows that he kept? Why she still came back to JK? Didn’t she love Jayakrishnan? What is it that makes the Mother Nature to shower rain whenever Jayakrishnan thinks or meets Clara except for the second time? Was that rain symbolizing the love that she had for him? And when she met him for the second time, there was no rain. Jayakrishnan himself says to her- “Njanathalla alochikunnathu, Ippravashyam naammal kandappol Mazha Peyyunundaayirunnilla”. At the same instance he checks her purse and finds a few visiting cards and asks the details of those people. Then she asks. “Thadi Contractore, Enthina ente mon aavashyamillatha kaaryangale kurichu aalochikkunnathu.” How beautiful. Didn’t Jayakrishnan had a thought that she is leaving him for the final time. She says that later, “Radha Mannarathodiyilekku varunnathu vareye nammal thammil kanalundavulooo.” And when she meets him for the final time she had become the wife of Money Joseph.
How many unanswered questions?
Same is the case with Jayakrishnan. He liked or loved Radha(Parvathi) once. She neglected him. Then he came across Clara, whom he met as Thadi Contractor or Motehr Superior. He makes love to her, only to know that she was a virgin till that time. He is guilty, for he has kept all of his purity for the girl whom he will marry. Now as Radha is over, he offers to marry her. But she left him, without any reason. Then Radha comes back to him, and later again Clara. At that point of time, he loves both of them and still he is honest to them, even though Radha doesn’t understand him at times. Can a person be ever like that ever? Can a person have contact with 2 persons at the same time and yet be honest to both of them? And Jayakrishnan himself doesn’t know why he goes back to her as he tells to Radha – “Enikkariyilla, Enthukonda eeyoru kuttiyude kaaryathil maathram njan enthe ingane perumarunathu”. And Radha too is bold and decided that she will marry him only – “Njan ennenkilum, Eppozhenkilum oru Vivaaha Registeril oppidanamennu enikku thonniyal.. athu Jayettante oppinte aduthe aakulloo.” Why she is waiting for a man who has another woman also in her mind?
Still lot of unanswered questions.
Any day any time I am ready to watch it again.
In Kathaavaseshan too I came across a character like these. Gopinathan Menon (Dileep), who hangs himself for no reason. Until we realize it at the end of the movie. A reason that will just shake you, and stay in your mind. Can a person do a suicide for that reason? Class from T V Chandran.
These are characters that never die from a viewers mind. And created by geniuses.
