Yes, you read that right! Magalir Mattum is the upcoming Jyothika film that will force you to catch it FDFS. Trust us, if you don't, the teaser and trailer of the film will make you. Directed by Bramma of Kuttram Kadithal fame, Magalir Mattum also stars Urvashi, Bhanupriya and Saranya Ponvannan.
The film is about the issues faced by women in a man's world but wait, before you call this film as 'yet another typical feminist kinda flick' let us tell you this, Magalir Mattum is going to be a fun-filled ride. The teaser of the film opens with the four women leads counting the number of dosas they have cooked for their families and this exchange is both funny and thought-provoking at the same time. Similarly, the trailer that was released on 24th April, 2017 is simply brilliant. It shows four middle-aged women out on a three-day road trip leaving their families and the responsibilities that come with it behind. It is a ladies only trip and we want in on it! You will want to go too after watching this trailer.
The trip seems super fun and is a way for the ladies to know what it is like to live for themselves, even if it is for just a few days. The eight-second long ranting by a woman about the various responsibilities she handles at home will make you sit back and think. This film and Jyothika's earlier film 36 Vayadhinile (2015) is probably an attempt to bring about a change in the way women are viewed – as mere eye candies by filmmakers – and it is refreshing to watch. Jyothika seems to be joining the gang of filmmakers and actors who, through films, try to bring forward more stories of women empowerment and hope to make a difference.
As we eagerly wait for the release date to be announced, we wish the team of Magalir Mattum all the very best. We can't wait to get on this fun and promising ride with you! Watch this space for the Magalir Mattum film review.
