Snehaseema

Award winning malayalam movie “Snehaseema” (1954) directed by S.S. Rajan and starring Sathyan, Padmini among others.

As per wikipedia, the story is an adaptation of L.A. Tennyson’s Enoch Arden, but with a twist. In Enoch Arden, the sailor does not come back for 7 years and is considered as lost in war, but here the character has been declared as dead by the army and the lady marries within 3 years of his death to the soldier’s best friend.

Sathyan has acted brilliantly as usual in the movie, his acting is master class and Padmini has over acted as usual. Too much of emotional scenes and too lengthy make it slightly boring but the movie is worth watching purely for Sathyan’s acting. He is brilliant.
