Su Su Sudhi.. is a wonderful portrayal of understanding one's self and working hard to preserve, augment and succeed in that attempt.
Most movies around the world focusses on fantasy than reality. Gruesome murders, frivolous chases, undecipherable mysteries, willful perusal of love and lust. the list of inconsequentially repeated attempts at preposterous themes go on.
Malayalam movies have always taken pride in looking at the world differently with alarmingly pleasant regularity and this movie is yet another example of that.
Sudhi lets us into his world through a flashback when he was forced to take a ride back to his hometown in the car of a popular movie star.
Born with an obvious speech defect, Sudhi tries to overcome that using a combination of nervousness, prayers, physical therapy, denial and everything one could come up with that won't help him live the life of a normal man. The last straw for him was when his wife to be, decides that she can't accept the challenges of being married to a person with stammering. In comes a budding speech therapist Kalyani (Shivada Nair) in the village who was instrumental in the breakup and she inspires him to first accept the realities and learn to cope with it the best way possible.
Ranjith Shankar has yet again proved that he is one of the few directors who continue to make Malayalam movies look very good to the rest of the world despite the challenges posed by the potential audience in an ever changing society. The casting in this movie is superlative. I would have to say there is not even one character that is miscast, which is a rarity in a small industry with plethora of artists. The Producer, who played the protagonist, got the special mention at the National Awards in 2015. Besides him, the character of Kalyani stands tall among all, with enterprising acting and phenomenal screen presence for most of the movie.
