A Minor Inconvenience / Vrithakrithyilulla Chathuram
Dir : Krishand R K / India / 123 minutes / Malayalam / 2019
Mani is different. The sudden news of his father’s death did not conjure anything ‘usual’ in him. He wasn’t sad, or nostalgic or lost. He was miffed. It was an inconvenience, irksome. He was faced with distortions in his inflexible adherence to routine life. He returns to his native to find that his father’s death is not about ordinary departure but leftover inconveniences.
