Saudi Watermelon: Ayishumma’s Journey To Justice: “Brito Cheta, this is what a man is,’ is what Abhilash asks Brito when all hope has ended. Brito tells Abhilash when everything ends so intensely.
“Didn’t you ask Kunjumon back then if I was a human being? There is so much, man. Beyond the cases and the courts, the human relationship has been sharply drawn “Tarun Murthy in Saudi Vellaka. “Tarun has brought innovation to the audience with his first directorial venture ‘Operation Jawa’. Saudi Vellka is extensive with a diverse concept and a unique presentation style.
There are more than 43 crore pending cases in the country and one of them has been selected and made into a social satirical film. The 53rd International Film Festival garnered much critical acclaim and audience acclaim.
Saudi is a coastal area in West Kochi inhabited only by ordinary people. They deal with border disputes and other family issues. Meanwhile, one of the children playing cricket on top of the terrace hits Aishumma (Devi Varma) on the head, who is walking along the road. Later, the family of the child is influenced and the case is filed.
Through this accidental case, the police enters into the midst of ordinary people. Later, Ayishumma even abandoned her family and fought a legal battle for thirteen years. The story of the survival of this ordinary woman is presented with perfect reality. As the judge tells the plaintiff standing in the cage ” You should not play good Kerala’. Saudi Arabia is not a good picture. But there is helplessness in this, there is a sense of justice and above all there is humanity. So Ayishumma’s journey will leave you with at least a mild tingling sensation.
It hit theaters during the break of Covid without any superstars “Like ‘Operation Jawa’, this film also stars Lukman and Binu Pappu in lead roles. Both have graced the role as usual.

Jose, Vincy Abhilash, Devi Rajendran, Dhanya Ananya, Rhea Zainu, Sminu Sijo, Sajeed Pattalam and Abu Valiyakulam are also playing the lead roles.
