Bharya Athra Pora is a family drama film, and Jayaram and Gopika's performances are the main highlights of the film. Girish Kumar's screenplay, Shyam Dharam's music, Jibu Jacob's cinematography are its other attractions in the film. The routine and predictable story is the one big drawback of the movie.
The storyline of Bharya Athra Pora is similar to that
of Veruthe Oru Bharya. The movie is all about how a lazy
husband harasses his wife, who gets frustrated with his careless
life. It is a tale of reformation of a man, who almost ruins his
family life in booze and wome, and eventually tries to retrieve
what he has lost.
The movie, which throws light on a few contemporary issues,
lacks freshness and an element of surprise is missing in the plot.
The suffering, sacrifice and selfless generosity of a woman have
been shown on screen many times earlier. At times, the movie is
very convincing and offers a beautiful message to the society,
which has been exploiting woman for years.
Satyanathen (Jayaram) is a teacher at Vivekodayam school in
Thrissur. He is leading happy life with wife Priya (Gopika), who is
a bank employee. But over a period of time, he develops lazy and
careless attitude towards his job and commitments following his
frequent booze parties with his friends. This takes a toll on his
family and professional life. What happens next will from the crux
of the film.
