Sundara Kaandam, originally published in Tamil portrays the ordeals faced by the Indian women with an uncommon sensitivity. The protagonist Sita is forced into marrying a playboy millionaire Sukumaran. She holds out with determination and he heals with his married life with distant dignity a la epic Ravana.
Giridhar, an idealistic social activist, flits across the canvas with a Rama like visage. Sundara Kaandam is a riveting narrative marked by empathy and perceptiveness.
