Janakan

Posted by surfingall on May 4, 2010

There have been films, even recent ones, that have dealt with this much discussed theme of sexual abuse. Of these films, Janakan has quite a strong resemblance to Vairam, which is very surprising, since both the films have common actors, and it’s amazing that these similarities were never pointed out.Viswanathan (Suresh Gopi) and his wife Nirmala (Kaveri) adore their only daughter who gets brutally raped and later murdered. Advocate Surya Narayanan (Mohanlal) is the only lawyer who could save Viswanathan and his friends (Biju Menon and Harisree Ashokan) who emerge on a revenge spree and are now wanted by the police.

Janakan falters mostly because it’s never able to dwell on the crime itself. This is what makes it dissimilar to a film like Achanurangatha Veedu, where there is no escape from the crime and its manifestations. In Janakan, the focus is on the thrills, while the crime remains on the border lines.
