Summary

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along!

Detailed Analysis

Sufiyum Sujatyum as the title says is the story of a Sufi (a Muslim ascetic and mystic played by Dev Mohan) and Sujata (a mute Hindu only girl child to her parents played by Aditi Rao Hydari). It is a very elegantly made and performed love story ignoring the storyline (Storyline is something, a zillion movies are made of and is quite predictable). What differentiates Sufiyum Sujatyum from other movies despite the predictable old storyline, is the way it is made. 

The director Naranipuzha Shanavas deserves applause for this beautiful and elegant storytelling. Throughout the movie, you will feel as if you are reading soulful poetry. I felt like visualizing some of my favorite poems of “Rumi”. Shanavas has succeeded in this poetic way of storytelling but my major complaint is that, had the storyline been a little unique, the movie has the potential to be remembered as a Master Piece. 

Between the predictable love story, there comes an impressive character Aboob (Swami Shoonya). Though his screen presence is limited, he played a good role and there is a scene that you need to watch out for where Aboob tells Sujata to forget Sufi using a metaphor of sleep, being awake, etc., Aboob also reminds her of the bitter truths of life – race, ethnicity, religion, caste, God, etc., subtly and that

Sleep is the purest form of being close to God as you will leave all the earthly baggage while you sleep.

As I mentioned, it is a deep concept and the director tried just addressing it more lightly. Needs some deep thought from the audience for sure. 

Talking about performances, it is Aditi Rao Hydari’s show all the way. Her costumes, body language, expressions, dance everything is just so very elegant. She literally lived the role of Sujata. She has outperformed a challenging role with such elegance and ease. All the other characters are just fine. 

One more asset to the film apart from Aditi Rao, is the Music Director M Jayachandran. The BGM is just magical, haunting, and a great aid to set the mood. Trust me the background tune is all over my mind even after the movie is over. The Azan calling is mesmerizing! It takes you into a different world altogether. 

Sufiyum Sujatyum is a movie not everyone might enjoy. If you feel like taking a break from watching the fast, speed, racy thrillers/suspense movies, please watch this movie and you’ll just experience as if you have read a very beautiful poem. A poem written with all “heart”. I fondly remembered one of my favorite quotes of Rumi as I watched the movie
