She came, saw and conquered is a made-for-Nadiya Moithu movie. When Nadiya entered the malayalam movie world in the mid 80s, her refreshing style of acting , strangely called smart (not sure whether everyone prior to her were less smart) triggered a set of movies that unfortunately fizzled away in a matter of few years. Those years 1985-1987 saw many screenplays by noted script writers such as Kaloor Dennis (in this case) who wrote them thinking of Nadiya. The other essential ingredient of that era - Baby Salini - also plays an important part in this movie.
VKK is the story of Padmavathy Amma (Lakshmi) who is the doyen of her family and society. Her view of the world is disliked by all, nevertheless questioned by none due to the tyrant that she can turn out to be. Her husband, Mangalath Viswanatha Menon, a retired business tycoon, portrayed by MG Soman, her 4 sons - Lalu Alex,Maniyanpilla Raju, Shankar and Baiju - find it ostensibly difficult to communicate how they feel. The life under the joint family roof is miserable, primarily due to the lack of freedom. Her second son gets married to Sreedevi (Rajalakshmi) and that brings home her sister, Nadiya Moithu , who is a loud spoiled brat who uses utmost irreverence to deal with growing up to be an adult. Albeit sensitive, she is capable of thinking on her feet and ensuring that she has the last laugh in all matters. With her arrival at Padmavathy Amma's home, the carefully built up sanctum sanctorum of terror slowly starts falling apart much to chagrin Padmavathy and the excitement of the rest of the family. To make matters worse, smitten by her 'smartness', the Doctor son of the couple falls in love with her too. While on the verge getting chucked out of the house for she being too overbearing, the fate has it that Mr Menon suffers yet another heart attack and the girl's quick thinking on the feet saves the day.
All's well that ends well and Shankar and Nadiya characters get married and they all live happily ever after. The movie in a different generation would be considered silly and inconclusive, but to that generation this resonated well and the movie did well at the box office.
Other than Nadiya, Lalu Alex, Surekha and the ensemble cast put up a commendable show. Shyam's music continues to be a pleasure to this day.
