Anjala: Film Review – A Film for the Entire Family

 Verdict: A novel plot that’s heavy on drama.

When was the last time you saw a film that centered around an ancestral property, that has a history around it. In today’s world, when prominent landmarks and ancestral homes are regularly demolished, Anjala tells the story of how one man decides to save his prized possession. 
Directed by Thangam Saravanan, Anjala boasts of a unique and novel plot. It centers around a tea-shop owner, whose shop was started by his grandfather way back in the British era, and how the then-deserted place slowly develops a community around it, and becomes a village. In 2016, the 100-year-old tea shop faces several problems, and how Muthu (Pasupathy) tries to tackle the problems, forms the rest of the story.
Devoid of any crass jokes, item songs or silly duet numbers, Anjala truly stands out and sticks to the main plot. The film has plenty of comedy, a simple and sweet love story and several twists that are required for a commercial film. The first-half of the film gives us a look into how important the Anjala tea-shop is for the neighborhood. Muthu treats one and all like they are his family. He is portrayed as a do-gooder, whose primary weapon is ahimsa. 
One of the highlights of the film is the engaging flashback sequence, that gives us a sneak peek into how the tea shop was started. The props and the costumes, are apt for the period setting. The second half of the film is high on sentiment and family drama. It also becomes fairly preachy and repetitive. Despite the qualities of a daily soap, the film manages to hold your attention. What surprises you is the film’s unpredictable climax and the crisp runtime. Gopi Sundar’s music is also perfect for the film. 
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
If you’re a fan of films that have a good mix of drama and comedy, then Anjala is for you. This film is for the entire family.
