Starring Jayaram, Samyuktha, Innocent,
Swayamvara Pandhal is what you would call
the typical Jayaram-family movie. This time the family hero -
Jayaram joins director Harikumar with a script written by
none other that Sreenivasan himself.

up with this marriage proposal and on the pressures
coming from his sisters and other family memebers, he
ultimately do so.
is asked to marry this girl and finally he does so.
Though actually the sisters were quite contented with the
huge dowry she brings along, it was upto Deepu to get
used to his new wife,Priya, the bride personally
handpicked by his sisters.
HOwever things does not come great for Deepu as soon he
realises that his wife behaves rather strangely. Soon
several instances later, he realises that his wife is
mentally ill. A stunned Deepu sents his wife packing
home. But even after that, he realises that his heart has
been already filled with love for his Priya.
So he brings her back and decides to take her to a
institution for the mentally retarded where an able
doctor uses some effective techniques to treat the
the film's second half reminds one of the Mohanlal flick
'Ayyal Katha Ezhuthukayaanu' but is brought to life
thanks to the wonderful characters played by Innocent and
Sreenivasan, two other mentally deranged patients.
But the treatment does not bring everything to an end,
because soon Deepu comes to know more truths about
Priya's past life that gives him the setbacks.
Jayaram does give another wonderful performance that is
expected from him. He is also well supported by Samuktha
Varma as Deepu's wife Priya.
But it is Innocent, Sreenivasan and to some extent Lalu
Alex as the doctor, who rises above all to remain in the
Rather pleasing songs by Johnson and penned by Girish
Puthancherry and O.N.V. also is worth a listen or two.
despite the wonderful characters and acting, the rather
weak storyline might be the big minus point in this
