This Satyan Anthikaud directed Mohanlal-Revathy starrer is a long pending due for me, until I catched up with Moserbaer's series. Scripted by Sreenivasan, 'Varavelpu' is more of a satire, than a routine Satyan Anthikaud comedy, taking digs at the rampant labour unions that prove to be a nightmare for the capitalists in Kerala. This movie is a micro level testimony for why there is no big industries coming up in one of the most literate states of India. 'Varavelpu' is about Murali (Mohanlal) a Gulf returned NRI who blows up all his bank account to start his own business - a bus transport. More than making money, his venture lands him in trouble thanks to the unfriendly labour unions, forcing Murali to reconsider his options & opinions about the people around him and leave back to Gulf for making money. The best part of the movie is that it not only makes you laugh but pinches at the same time with hard hitting truth. Also 'Varavelpu' makes you to see the other side of the fence - the plight of investors in Kerala. At the end we all empathise with Murali's state of affairs. A lovely movie to watch that holds relevence even after 20 years of its theatrical release, that's why it is still hailed as a classic. Revathy has very little to do but the supporting cast by Janardhanan, 'Oduvil' Unnikrishnan, Murali and KPAC Lalitha floor you with their overwhelming presence. With good picture quality and simple English subtitles and a throw away price of Rs. 34/-, please give it a try.
