Chandupottu
Cast
: Dileep, Gopika, Bhavana, Biju Menon, Lal
Director
: Lal Jose
Music
: Vidyasagar
Lyrics
: Vayalar Sharathchandra Varma
Producer
: Lal
Chandupottu directed by Lal Jose is the story of a transvestite who is a man with a woman's mannerisms, a fresh theme not attempted before.

Radha Krishnan alias Radha is brought up like a girl by his grandmother ( Sukumari) who wanted a granddaughter. Radha grows up with the typical mannerisms, behavior and emotions of a girl. He keeps company with girls and is into dancing and singing. He keeps away from boys and is the ridicule of all and sundry. His best friend is Maalu (Gopika). Komban Kumaran (Indrajeet) a local moneylender has an eye for Malu. 

When Radha was young, his father Sukumaran (Lal) kills a man, who happens to be Kumaran's father, and is jailed. He comes back from jail after 12 years and is shocked to see his son like this. Meanwhile Radha Krishnan and Maalu fall for each other and this irks Kumaran who already had the vengeance for the death of his father in his mind. 

There came a time when the fisherman in the village could not get enough fish from the sea. People began to starve and then Kumaran with the help of Maalu's father (Rajan.P.Dev), an astrologer made everyone believe that Radhakrishnan, being a man woman was the cause of the problem. To prove himself Radha sets out to the sea to catch fish. Kumaran and his cronies beats him up and leave him to die in the sea.

But as luck would have it, Freddie( Biju Menon) another fisherman saves him and takes him to his place in Goa. He becomes like a family member to Freddie and his sister Rosie (Bhavana) and they try to make a man out of him. Find out what happens to Radha and Malu...

The theme is new and is packaged well by the director. The story is an adaptation in part, of a play written by Benny .P. Nayarambalam and directed by Rajan P. Dev. The narration is witty. But the screen play falters at times especially in the second half where the theme completely takes a turn with new characters and locale. Camera work by Azagappan is brilliant, capturing beautiful shots of the sea. Music by Vidyasagar is no big deal.  

In the acting department, Dileep has portrayed his character wonderfully. In fact it is his acting that carries the movie. The mannerisms of the man woman is kept intact through out the film. Lal and Indrajeet give adequate support. Bhavana, Gopika and Biju Menon are okay.

Overall the film is watchable mainly for Dileep's acting and wit.
