Female oriented films may be common in Malayalam film industry but it is an exceptional trait in the Tamil film industry. Malini 22 Palayamkottai is one such venture that can be compared to the Blue lily flowers that blossom only once in twelve years. The film opens with Nithya Menon’s arrest now why is she arrested is what the crux of the story is about.

A nurse by profession Nithya Menon awaits her visa to leave abroad for employment. In this process she visits the overseas employment agency regularly and falls in love with the manager there. Now where does this romance lead and what all problems she is forced to face is the story. This is told with lot of twists and turns by the director, if all this is revealed the suspense factor will be compromised hence watch the movie in the theater.

The initial half of the film moves swiftly and in a happy-go-lucky manner, just before the interval Nithya gets in trouble leaving the audience in anticipation as to what will happen next.

Nithya Menon is the apt choice for the character be it the role of an innocent girl in the first half and in the negative role during the climax, her performance is commendable. Vidhyulekha Raman has plays Nithya’s sister. Kovai Sarala also has done a great job. Nithya Menon’s love interest has been portrayed by Girish and he has intimidated the audience with his acting. Similarly the employment agency’s owner Naresh’s character sends shivers in the spine. Kotta Srinivasan’s role is a sweet and a memorable one. All the characters are etched in the memory and this is a plus for the movie.

Music is by Aravind Shankar and the songs haven’t made any impact and so does the BGM.

Sripriya has directed the movie professionally but the climax scene has lengthy dialogues that could have been shortened to hold the audiences interest.


Malini 22 makes an impact!
