What’s the story of Saudi Vellakka

Abhilash Sasidharan, played by Lukman Avaran, is served with a summons to appear in court as the victim in a case that occurred approximately 14 years ago, when he was just a boy. The incident in question took place in his neighbourhood. On the opposing side of the argument is an elderly woman named Ayesha Rawther, portrayed by Devi Varma, who in a sudden lapse of reason was responsible for a furious act. Her rage had been fueled in part by the events that were occurring in her own personal life at the moment, and she immediately felt sorrow for her actions. However, there is no possibility of reaching a settlement because of the hostility that exists between the neighbours, which also serves as the context for the case.

Tharun Moorthy, who made his acting debut with the play Operation Java, which built a captivating drama around the concerns of cyber crime and joblessness, now again relies on an issue to drive his tale. However, the issue does not stand out in the same way as it did in his debut. Instead, the purpose of the attempt is to express the feelings of the individuals who are going through this, and he is successful in this endeavour to a significant degree. He also goes for a sharp change in tone, which results in the creation of a mood piece that lacks dazzling aspects and most of the humour.

Moorthy’s plans for the movie will likely be heavily reliant on the characters that he develops for them. Ayesha, out of all of them, is the one who winds up becoming the film’s soul. She goes from being a defenceless lady who has no idea what she has landed in to becoming someone who learns to swim with the tide and stands as a silent witness to the gradual turning of the wheels of justice. It appears as though she is hoping that the wheels will run over her so that the situation will end quickly. The performance of newcomer Devi Varma is elevated to the level of outstanding thanks in large part to the dubbing provided by Pauly Wilson. Sujith Shankar, who plays the role of her emotionally vulnerable son Sathar, comes close to matching her.

Witnesses who are no longer alive or who are bedridden become embodiments of the ravages of time and the pointlessness of deep-seated animosities over insignificant matters. We are also left with people that have matured throughout the course of the story (and at times exude too much goodwill), but the script, mercifully, does not stray into the region of being overly upbeat and positive.

In the end, Saudi Vellakka is an emotionally powerful film that earnestly makes a case for a justice system that is more responsive.
