All love stories are cliched and the task before a filmmaker attempting a love story is daunting. Desire, passion, resistance, hope, longing, despair, euphoria - these transform a love story into a banal exercise. Hence, when Sachy, the writer who has a number of hits to credit, wields mega phone for the first time, he is cautious enough to place a theme. Lakshadweep, the locale, gives a fresh feel to Anarkali with its stunning visual beauty, unusual customs and a life restricted by the ocean. This, along with the perfect casting, makes the film a convincing affair.
