Olu 2019 Malayalam Movie Story
There is no doubt Shaji N Karun’s vision for Olu, or She in English, is fascinating and the storytelling is mysteriously beautiful, but the execution of the intermingling of ancient customs, mythology, magical realism, and an ethereal love story does not quite deliver on the potential.
The story follows a girl whose name is Maya (Esther Anil), who is raped and drowned in Kerala’s backwaters.
Keeping mysteriously alive by what is believing to be the spirit of a female Buddhist monk in the form of underwater plants, a pregnant Maya, because she can see above the water on full moon nights, falls in love with Vasu (Shane Nigam).
Maya advises by the spirit to release all the love she has inside her heart over a period of 10 full moons — the time required to complete a pregnancy cycle. This, she tells, would help her to attain nirvana.
The underwater visuals of Maya, surrounded by hyacinths and lotuses, are ethereal, a visual treat.
Vasu, who is in search of a muse so that he can become a great painter, deeply design by Maya’s beautiful voice and words. Their romance blossoms under the stars and the full moon, amid water lilies and the calm waters, brought alive by MJ Radhakrishnan’s cinematography.
Out of love, Maya uses her special powers to help Vasu create some great works, but their ideas of love are different. While Maya seeks the joy of pure love, Vasu is an ordinary man looking for ordinary love and yearns to see her in her physical form.

Once the action moves to Mumbai when Vasu gets some opportunities to showcase his art, the performances, including Nigam’s, and the screenplay, by TD Ramakrishnan, begin to suffer.
