Where did you watch this movie?

Evocative and provocative, this socially relevant drama delves into the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Shanthamma, an ordinary girl from an impoverished family in Kerala. When the family relocates to Madras, the capital of the neighbouring state of Tamil Naidu, circumstances drive her to become a teenage film star, Lekha (Nalini). The crux of this tale delves into the trials and triumphs in her life, highlighting the tremendous price of fame and fortune – including a stint as a prostitute; the merciless exploitation she suffers from her alcoholic father (Varghese) and her pushy mother (Subha), as well as from her professional colleagues, especially from her lover, the unhappily married Suresh (Gopi), a director of art-house films. Under such demeaning and exploitative circumstances, how will Lekha react to her life?
