Comments Have you watched Mitr, My Friend yet? Lakshmi, a traditional Indian woman, marries an American-Indian and lives in America with him and their daughter. He comes out cold, unfeeling and uptight — surely we are better than that as hubbies? The lighting was flat and strange candlelight dinner on a sunny afternoon? Also the music score by bhavatharini needs special mention which simply complements the visualisation and moods. I guess it helps that I also adore Mohan and Karthik! The daughter, friends, neighbors, -- everyone else -- gave stilted performances as if they were reading their lines. After a great opening scenes, the movie falls flat. The same hands that point out the mistakes being commited doesn't go without touching the deeper core of our soul. Only sensitive people can appreciate this movie.
I really enjoyed the story, music, and acting. It is more appropriate in the countries like India, where it is still expected from woman to stay back at home and look after her family only, where she still considered to be a second citizen. . Director Revathy and her crew which consists only woman deserves cheers. Amala, You know I am not fond of Revathi at all!! If it was the husband, why didn't he seem to know anything about it and why wasn't he wearing a yellow shirt? The hero nasir Abdulla, familiar to everyone who sees any ad for any fashion wear past 20 years, is miscast as the tambram husband.

Move forward 17 years, and we have a teenage girl in the house, an indifferent husband wedding to long hours at work, and a stayathome mom, who for 17 years had spent all inside the house, catering to the needs of the hubby, daughter big flaw in story here…but then it is only a story. The soundtrack was nonstop georgewinston-ey, with cricket chirps dubbed into the nighttime scenes. Despite my misgivings of Mitr, I will still give it a 6 because of Shobana's performance and look forward to seeing her in other projects of better quality. Illayaraja has done a great job, even after so many years, i still enjoys the music of Mitr. Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,! The teenage daughter acts her natural self, like all of us who have teenagers in north America know. I used to think she was a tambrahm.
Maybe Indian mothers haven't caught on to the fact that the surest way to drive a daughter into the arms of the wrong boy is to forbid her from seeing him! It also depicts how one forgets to live her own life for relations and a very positive ending marks states that still we can believe in relations. Though it is very unlikely, that woman in U. You know who I liked in the 80's? You are currently viewing our boards as a guest which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features. But then it is only a story. I used to like Anuradha too. Too bad it backfired on her because of her husband's jealousy and insecurity. Every line of dialogue was forced and overdone clearly the director's decision.
She told us that at first, the all-women technical crew was a fluke, until the final member was chosen, when she decided to stick with all females though would have compromised had an adequate female not been found. The weak link, is why it took 17 years for shobhana to leave home and start self fulfilling activities. You know i only knew who Anuradha and Seema were recently. I never really was fond of the 80's heroines. Mitr, which is all about alienation an average woman starts feeling when her daughter and lifemate starts blaming her to be orthodox and a nag; and hardly find time to understand her. That said, Divya's almost instant transformation from bratty teen to friend and confidante of her mother's was hard to believe. I used to watch movies for the sake of item numbers and Silk Smita was my fav.

Shobhana won best actor national awards for this movie, which I would go along. I was told these 2 ladies used to be very popular item number dancers in their heydays. Lakshmi was right, of course - her daughter was too young and immature to live on her own and made the expected terrible decision in choosing her first boyfriend. As an aside I also like Sripriya. Most tambram women landing on the shores of usa, cannot wait to assert themselves to improving their lot — education, activity, socialising etc.
I still somehow like the ones who can run around trees and dance sorts cos they help us unwind and are less stressful to the mind to watch. Not a good thing, as Lakshmi was too judgmental and interfering in her daughter's life. Shes still very pretty from what I've seen now. Welcome to Tamil Brahmins forums. It's a film which is so much refreshing for all those who got a heart to empathise and understand problems of others. She devotes her life to her family while her teenage daughter and ambitious husband grow increasingly independent. There is this slight suspense here, as to who her regular chatterer friend is.
Mitr is partly redeemed by its strong character development, but it's poor production quality is so distracting that I did not enjoy watching it. Wish the quality of the film, sound and acting were more consistent. However, please contact us if you believe that informative content on this service affects in any way your legal rights. Lakshmi did a very brave thing in attempting to become more educated and independent. I'm a huge fan of hers and love her acting especially in Marupadiyum, Anjali and one of my all time favourites of hers, Mouna Ragam which i can watch a gazillion times and never tire of.
I found it ultimately unsatisfying, primarily because I watch Indian films in order to experience the color of exotic cultures and locales. Made-for-television movies are distributed in 4:3 small screen. Mitr, my friend, gives voice to women, who are lonely and go through what Lakshmi has gone through in this movie. Without commercial breaks, the full movie Mitr: My Friend has a duration of 104 minutes; the official trailer can be streamed on the Internet. What did you think about it? This movie was filmed in my neighborhood, the Bay Area, and I imagine Lakshmi's feelings are quite common among women in the local Indian community whose husbands hold very demanding high-tech jobs, who are not themselves well-educated or social, and whose children are exhibiting the worst characteristics of spoiled California young adults. I find her like a female version of Vishu.
