The movie ‘Sundari Gardens’ directed by Charlie Davis is a triangle love story of individuals who are in their prime of youth, established, and holding a mature perspective of life.
Set in the backdrop of a school, the movie narrates the tale of three school teachers, Victor (Neeraj Madhav), Sundari Sarah Mathews (Aparna Balamurali) and Lekha (Lakshmi Menon) and the narrative sails with some moderate emotional contours.
The romance of a divorced young woman has been poignantly and beautifully portrayed by Aparna Balamurali. Meanwhile, Neeraj Madhav plays an equally complementary part by essaying a down-to-earth and benign young teacher.
A nice story though, the amateurish treatment of sequences robs the movie of the beauty of a garb that could wrap the moments and make them more precious and aesthetic.
The dialogues are frank and are hence engaging. The movie with less filmy cacophony can be enjoyed like a silent breeze. The mesmerising music and the songs composed by Alphons Joseph make it all the more enthralling.
The enchanting song ‘Mayamoham’ beautifully rendered by Sithara and Alphons Joseph is the heart of the movie.
Swaroop Philip’s camera has absorbed whatever beautiful and breathtaking appeared on its frames.
Binu Pappu, Vijayaraghavan, Sminu Sijo, Jude Anthany among others appear in prominent roles.
