“A good teacher not only teaches the children but also learns from them,” said a wise old man on a quiet evening in Maria Frances at her home in Peruntrutu. Maria is employed as a physical education teacher at a local government girls’ school and recruits Kho-Kho players from among students.
This is no easy task. He’s been told that the children here drop out of school after school to help their families financially. They are not poor but also unhealthy. More importantly, the lack of opportunities at this venue encourages a lack of student and staff movement.
Rahul Ridge Nairs’ scriptwriter “Kho Kho” differs from genre films:
The focus on child and community crime/poverty. The most famous is the British production “Sir, with Love” from 1967. Kho Kho is the story of a teacher who grapples with his troubled past and a group of children who are less ambitious than myopic, less ambitious parents in an ambitious school—inspired to go beyond your tiny goals.
You don’t have to go the extra mile to get your paycheck. The principal assures Maria Guru that one day you will still get it. However, he did not sit still.
Rajisha Vijayan plays Maria, a woman who once tragically gave up her dreams and now wants to encourage others not to do the same.
The primary key to the Kho-Kho team he assembles is Anju (Mamitha Baiju), an unreasonably fast girl who meets her well-intentioned but fast coach, partly because they have similar personalities, partly because Maria is an imperfect person. Is a teacher studying at work?
Although Maria is the main character and her relationship with Anju is central to the plot, the film also paints a portrait of the entire community. Although the story contains the poison of disgust, especially in the two great relationships between father and daughter, comic breaks emerge from the initial interactions between Maria and her colleagues.
Nair generously took advantage of cameraman Tobin Thomas’s stunning aerial photo of the majestic Peruntrutu, which views the island and the calm waters around it as a visual sight and adds a more dramatic effect immense joy to the village hides in its heart. Breastfeeding communities that can never heal, domestic violence, roadside Romeo, petty interpersonal politics, and status quoism – a lot going on beneath the surface of a beautiful and seemingly calm, and the director slowly cuts it all through Kho Kho’s time in 1 hour 57 minutes.
Realism and a desire to reveal women’s truth have characterized Nair’s work:
As a director. Since she debuted Light In The Room, a gruesome tale of domestic violence. In a remote mountainous area, the best award earned for a feature film. At The Kerala State Awards 2017 Last month, Kalla Nottam (English: False Eyes). A cautionary tale about illegal surveillance and social police. It was named Best Malayalam Film of 2019 among the many national awards late for this year.
Kho Kho lacks the profound brilliance of Ottamuri Velicham but achieves. An overall sweetness and endearing positivity that transcends the sadness of the main character. She regularly stumbles, though deviating from her narrative editing style. As she gradually uses too much music and at one point becomes decidedly didactic. All of which ends with an excessive and unnecessary closure that extends by about 20 minutes. By turning the ending into a conventional tear film, it takes her out of her emotional appeal.
The composition of Sidhartha Pradeep played an essential role in both Kho Kho’s appointment and withdrawal. While the tempo, melody, singing, and central song arrangement of Kho Kho Kho Kho Theevandi. They are pleasant and add energy to the film, rap, and the English language of the songs is unpleasant. First, his rapping got too loud, and when he initially raised his head, it went against Kho Kho’s calm tone.
Second, the English line (especially British rap) uses awkward words and doesn’t suit the environment. The Rise Theme at least has a thoughtful melody. But Aditi Nair R. noticed: “Are you afraid to be left alone? / Well you don’t have to worry anymore because Ima will be alone. “In the rap number” Did he catch me “doesn’t fit in here.” I’ll be alone “? In Perundurtukh? It sucks to speak a language to use. It is very foreign to the place and the character.
There is also too much music in the story and places.
Where I want to rest for the silence and noise of the surroundings. The hallmark of a good exercise movement is that. It can attract you to play even if you know very little about it. The film Nair describes Kho Kho well without immersing the audience in the technical aspects and catching my eye. Each actor selected for the team looks like a real player. After a while, however, the game’s rendering is consistent in how the film creates music in these scenes.
