“As Metz put it, in a memorable phrase: A film is difficult to explain because it is easy to understand.â€(Monaco, 128) The films generally produced here make it a point to spoon feed the audiences and the film “Munnariyippu†makes a deviation from this path by breaking the stereotypes in a way making the audience think and reach at their own interpretation. This factor makes the film connotative which indeed takes the film to an elevated flat form. “Munnariyippu†is aMalayalam film directed by Venu. Primary characters in the film are Raghavan and Anjaly represented by Mammootty and Aparna. Traces of Existentialism and Nihilism can be clearly seen in this film. It is this Philosophical relatedness which makes it different from other pop culture films. The film is giving a message to the society or a warning which indeed is its title.
