MITR - My friend...

Movie Review: MITR - My friend
Starring: Shobhana, Nasir Abdullah, Preeti Vissa
Writer-director: Revathy Menon

Producer: George Pius Tharayil
Story: V.Priya

    

Mitr is the story of a dedicated wife and mother who, after getting terribly frustrated with her home finds a

new perspective to life in an online friend by the name of 'Mitr'.
  
The story begins with Prithvi (Nasir Abdullah), a successful computer engineer getting married to Lakshmi (Shobhana). They are settled in California. Soon, they have a daughter, Divya (Preeti Vissa). Thereafter, Lakshmi's world narrows down to her husband and daughter alone who she looks after with tremendous dedication. Unfortunately, cultural difference and a generation gap sets in

between Lakshmi and her daughter as the latter grows up. Lakshmi is unable to understand Divya's role in having an American boyfriend. She tries to correct her and Divya is unable to take this. She leaves the

house. Meanwhile, Prithvi is too busy in his work and doesn't have time for his wife. This is when Lakshmi realises that she has been taken for granted all this while by her husband and her daughter. She happens to make an online friend by the name of 'Mitr' who understands her, shares her joys and sorrows. At the same time, Lakshmi makes friends with Steve and Paul, her young neighbours.
This makes Prithvi worried and feel insecured. Meanwhile, Divya too gets back after a bad fallout with her boyfriend. She realises how

she has wronged her mother all this while. Things get settled between them when Lakshmi and Divya decide to meet 'Mitr' who has helped Lakshmi all this while. Well, the meeting turns out to be a comedy of

errors.
   
Mitr happens to be Revathy's debut film as a director. She has done a pretty good job and her work is indeed impressive. The characters are simple and straightforward. Shobhana is at her best here. Nasir Abdullah makes his presence felt. Preeti Vissa does a fair job as the rebellious daughter. Cinematography in the movie is alright and the U.S. locales are marvellously shot. Technically, the dubbing isn't all

that good. The movie has been dubbed in five languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telegu, Malayalam and English. Another major drawback in the film is the slow pace with which it moves. Dialogues by Sudha Kongara is OK. Bhavatharini scores the music and the lyrics are by Thamarai. Beena is the editor and Vasundhara Das has sung the songs. Camera is by Fouzia Fathima, who was the assistant of P.C.Sriram.
   
Overall, the movie is a cute one but will appeal mostly to women. alone.
