About the movie

`Ozhimuri` is based on the story of the book `Uravidangal` by veteran bilingual writer, B Jayamohan which is about the matrilineal system that prevailed in the Nair community in Travancore. In the matrilineal system, women successors of the family inherited the property. They were educated, bold and free. But in the 1940s, women lost all their powers and soon became slaves in the hands of a feudal patriarchal society. The movie exposes the complexities during a society`s transition from matrilineal to patrilineal.

`Ozhimuri` means `divorce record` in both Tamil and Malayalam. In the matrilineal system, women were free to divorce their husbands if they were not happy. The `ozhimuris` or small palm-leaf pieces recording divorces of couples still stand testimony to the freedom which women enjoyed those days. The movie lays open the ego clashes and complexities of a period through the eyes of its lead character Thanupillai (Lal), who witnesses the tale of three women, his mother, wife and son`s wife.

Directed by Madhupal, story and script by Jayamohan and produced by P N Venugopal, the movie will have Lal, Shwetha Mohan and Asif Ali in the lead roles.
