Sasneham Story

Sasneham movie revolves around Thomas Kurien (Balachandra Menon) and Sarasvati (Shobhana) who are primary school teachers; they are also an unusual couple for the rather conservative Malayali society. Thomas is a Christian is married to Sarasvati – a Hindu Brahmin, their families have cut off all ties with them after their love marriage. Thomas and Sarasvati live happily, adjusting to each others beliefs, likes and dislikes. When Sarasvati gets pregnant, the word spreads and both their families are now eager to re-establish ties with them to welcome the newborn into the family.

Sarasvati’s loud and domineering maternal aunt Meenakshi Ammal (Sukumari) comes to stay with them and so does Thomas’ mother Eliyamma and elder sister Rosy. Both sides of the family now try to establish their authority and religious identity over the couple and their house. When Meenakshi Ammal hangs pictures of Hindu gods in a room and starts saying her prayers, Eliyamma and Rosy retaliate by singing Christian hymns aloud in the adjoining room. Soon after this, Thomas’ family starts cooking non-vegetarian food in the kitchen without Sarasvati’s family’s consent. A series of such incidents slowly begins to create friction between the couple.

Thomas’ father convinces him to baptize the new born and bring the child up as a Christian. After constant fights and irreconcilable differences– Sarasvati leaves home. In the end love triumphs over petty religious differences; the couple reunites after learning from their mistakes and decide to politely keep their respective families at a distance.
