THE NEW FACE
by Mini Sathyan
I intend to write about the Malayalam movie 'Puthiya Mugham" or 'The new Face' which changed my life. After seeing this movie it was like a big makeover for my life. May I explain the outline story of the movie.
In this movie, the hero Mr.Krishnakumar (character) is a first year b tech student who is coming from a poor Brhamin family. He is highly talented in playing the musical instrument 'mritangham'. He is also teaching many children to play 'mrithangham'. On the first day in the college, where the students have to intoduce them self, Krishnakumar told about his talent in playing mritangam. The lecturer who admired about his talent asked him to play mritangham on the mic desk (just to mock)thinking that it is a mrithangam. Each and every student admired about his talent. Among the students, one girl named Aswathy, felt a a special affection for Krishnakumar. she starts to love him. Meanwhile, Aswathy's family propose a boy for her Who was their family friend. Aswathy does not agreed to the mariage proposal. The proposed boy, Mr.Bala was studying in the same college as their senior. Aswathy and Krishanakumar started to love each other.
One day Bala came to see Krishnakumar and Aswathy together and realized that they were in love. From then Bala was after his blood. One day When Krishnakumar and his friends were in hostal room enjoying his mrithangham concert, Bala came the room and asked only him to come to the up stairs. He
also asked him to take his mrithangham. Krishnakumar went with him thinking it will just be a ragging. But Krishnakumar was roughed up by them. They send him back to his home by giving a warning "If you dare to come back, you will be no more..." .
Krishnakumar reached his home in a pathetic state. His mother cried loudly cursing the one who did it. But his father stood with a gloomy, heart broken face. His relatives all were arrived at home. Every decided together that not to send him to the college any more. But his father told him in strong bold voice "Life is one and only one, one should not surrender it, in front anyone, Thrive all your difficulties, I am with you..."
Representation of this scene in movie is highly inspiring, with all inspiring sounds. It inspire Krishnakumar as well as me. Krishnakumar Went back to the college. Through a powerful fight he defeat the villain and continue with his studies.
I came to see this movie just before my b-tech classes starts. I was the one with poor will power and light hearted and I find it very difficult to face and overcome problems in my life. After seeing this movie it was like a big blow for my life. I feel like I got some magical powers to my mind to face all obstacles in my life. I realised I am limitless. I feel more interests to my life. Now working hard to achieve my dreams.
