What’d you do if your daughter, you adopted years ago avers on finding her biological mother? You know nothing about the mother, who she was, how she was, why she abandoned the child, or if she is still alive. She had vanished in the seas, out of sight of everyone, and you have nothing on her except maybe some hope that she might be somewhere around the beach town where you met your daughter for the first time. You’d ideally make few phone calls, run into the local civil offices for a possible ID check, or you’d visit the place, give a few days of search and return. But, not unless you are a character in a Mani Ratnam film, the ordinary is not you. You search in the town, do a check, visit hospitals, and visit a different country which has an ongoing war. All for the good. Mani Ratnam’s 2002 directorial, titled Kannathil Muthamittal (2002) is a magical take on a Child’s journey to find her biological mother. And the struggle of her father and mother, especially her mother whose insecurity takes over, when she feels her daughter might not leave her biological mother. The whole journey makes an amazing piece of art which according to me is the best Mani Ratnam film after Iruvar (1997), and I strongly recommend watching it.
