When the winds blow wild snuffing out the lamp, it is the Master Carpenter who takes up their challenge. Some quick calculations later he raises a stone slab at a distance, and the flames burn steady. When his own heart plays games with him, the games of desire, once again he triumphs. But how does a father react, who knows that his son has far surpassed his talent, his ethos? Was Perumthachan able to accept this challenge?

The legendary tale of Perumthachan, the Master Carpenter retold with a twist by master screen writer MT Vasudevan Nair in an award winning film. The Jnanpith, Sahitya Akademi and Padma Bhushan award winning writer sets this period drama in the caste sensitive brahminical society of Kerala.


A significant film that captures your eye and heart.
