An amateur effort from KB Madhu, Deepangal Sakshi is probably a throwback to the movies of late 1970s and 80s.
Indrajith as Rishi IAS is the protagonist who had to take some tough decisions implementing a civil case against a well liked family in town during his first job. The family attempts mass suicide leaving only the girl Krishnaveni (played by a constantly sobbing Navya whose histrionic skills apparently deserted here completely during the shooting of this hodge podge of a movie). Due to the boatload of guilt Rishi ends up marrying Veni much to the chagrin of his Uncle (Narendra Prasad) and family who was his defacto Dad. Uncle's daughter Rakhi (played by newcomer Rekha Unnikrishnan) had designs on Rishi but accepts the newlyweds as one should. Little did anyone realize that the conniving Rakhi had a few tricks up her sleeve. Eventually pulls one too many rabbits out of her hat that leads to her own downfall.
Poor screenplay, terrible direction, horrible editing and amateurish acting by Indrajith and the rest of crew makes the movie quite a boring one. Manoj K Jayan stands out as he has always done ever since Sargam. He keeps bringing the movie back to any semblance of sanity whenever it eases into the sloppiness. Some of the dialogs by Vashya Vachass is philosophical and makes a lot of sense as statements of life lessons. The movie will be remembered mostly for the unbelievably peppy music by Ouseppachan. Poovambante Kalippando is a phenomenal Vrindavana Saranga sung by the ace singer of 2005, Jyotsna. The picturization unfortunately is truly grotesque, but the melody outsmarted the creepiness of a dancing collector and his displaced cousin.
Indrajith is a marvelous actor now, in 2014, when I am writing this. His improvements from where he used to be to where has reached now is mind boggling. This should give every aspiring actor a lot of hope. I know there are no questions in a story, but I have to ask this as it's bothering me: Did the aunt (Manka Mahesh) pass away somewhere during the movie ? and the editor forgot to include that part ?
