Malayalam film ‘Daakini’ a comic caper

Grandmothers can be really cool and Malayalam director Rahul Riji Nair is trying to show that with his new film Daakini, which is centred around four senior citizens.

The movie is about women bonding and how they join forces to take on a don, who is played by none other than Chemban Vinod Jose.

Pauly Valsan, Sethu Lakshmi, Sarasa Balussery and Savithri Sreedharan play the four protagonists. Valson is Molly, a single woman managing her own automobile workshop. Lakshmi is Vilasini, whose husband has abandoned her. Balussery is Sarsa, a widow who lost her husband — a soldier — in war. Sreedharan plays Rosemary, a theatre artist with an ailing husband.

The four friends lead a content life, said Nair, a former software professional who quit a lucrative career to begin from scratch in cinema.

“What rocks their boat is Mayan, a stylish don entering into their lives,” he added.
