Synopsis A young lower-middle-class couple’s life is disrupted one day by a petty thief when he steals their only precious belonging. The film is set in Kasargode, in a police station where the action plays out, mirroring the corruption, pathos, humour and ridiculousness in what we routinely decry as the ‘system’. The goings-on at that station and how it affects the lives of everyone involved are what Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum is about.

This is my 2nd feature film after Maheshinte Prathikaram. Maheshinte Prathikaram won the National Award for the best Regional film in Malayalam Language. A young lower-middle-class couple’s life is disrupted one day by a petty thief when he steals their only precious belonging. The film is set in Kasargode, in a police station where the action plays out, mirroring the corruption, pathos, humour and ridiculousness in what we routinely decry as the ‘system’ .
The goings-on at that station and how it affects the lives of everyone involved are what Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum is about.
