"Ozhimuri" means 'divorce record' in both Tamil and Malayalam. In the matrilineal system, women were free to divorce their husbands if they were not having a sound relationship. The 'ozhimuris' or small palm-leaf pieces recording divorces of couples still stand testimony to the freedom, which women enjoyed those days.
This intense and socially relevant drama delves deep into the ego clashes and complexities of a period through the eyes of its lead character Thanupillai (Lal), who witnesses the tale of three women, his mother, wife and son's wife.
