‘Vadakakku Oru Hridayam’ becomes TV serial


Padmarajan’s  best-selling novel, ‘Vadakakku  Oru  Hridayam’, is being made  into a  serial for Amrita TV. P. Ananthapadmanabhan, son of the legendary writer and filmmaker, writes the script and K.K.Rajeev wields the megaphone. The serial will be telecast at 7 pm, Monday through Friday, from June 8 2009.

Set in central Travancore in the 1970’s, the plot is about three women-- the timid, submissive Aswathy, the strong-willed Saraswathy and the ambitious Malini-- whose lives are inextricably linked to and influenced by Kesavankutty.

Through a handful of closely intertwined characters, Padmarajan holds up a mirror to life as it existed in Kerala almost four decades ago, and  addresses issues of marriage, male-female equations and the plight of women.

A movie based on this novel was made in the late 1970’s; though it was a super hit, the narrative had focused only on selected  parts of the novel.

The television version on the other hand, is a full adaptation of the classic, laying emphasis on those sections that had not been part of the movie; the serial tells the story through the eyes of Saraswathy, who was a minor character in the film.
