Rakshadhikari Baiju Oppu starring Biju Menon in the lead role has hit the theatres on (April 21, 2017). The film, which is expected to be a realistic entertainer with feel good elements has its script written by the director himself. Rakshadhikari Baiju Oppu has been produced by Alexander mathew And Satheesh Kolam under the banner 100th Monkey Movies.
Baiju is a laidback government employee in his forties, who spends most of his time with youngsters half his age, playing cricket. He is a Good Samaritan in his neighbourhood, but an irresponsible husband at home. The film is a saga of his selfless intervention in various instances for his dear and near.
Baiju is in a kallu shaappu with his friends, and one of the boozers is singing the renowned Malayalam song Oru Pushpam Maathramen. The character, played by Alencier Ley, croons the whole of the first stanza in a markedly slow flow, in the typical ‘spirited’ tone suited to the setting. And what’s the whole scene for? So that Baiju thinks of his ex-lover for a split second.
Apart from being an entertainer, the film also makes use of the platform that it has got, to deliver some important messages, like the problems with development, raising of children etc. The film addresses many such topics through sub-plots, which have been aptly placed and never ever does the film fall on the preachy mode. Rakshadhikari Baiju is one such film that could be kept close to our heart. While narrating the story of Baiju and his village, the film takes you through an endearing ride of nostalgia.
