The rest of the movie deals with the further changes in the life of Tessa.
Theme of the movie
Nurse provides valuable services. It is very unfortunate that conditions of nurses in India are very crucial. Aashiq Abu this time came forward with a tale of nurse. Thus the movie is very much important in the present scenario. Certain scenes in this movie remember us the remarkable services provide by a committed nurse. At the same time movie shows exploitations and other abuses against nurses. Film also provides a post modern perspective to love, sex and man-women relationship, virginity etc. The film is extremely unconventional. The female lead character is not at all conscious about virginity. She had lost virginity during her adolescence period itself and never expresses a sense of regret in that. She never hesitates to drink with his lover. She is used to wander with him at night. Tessa. K.Abraham is not a typical heroine. She is extremely unconventional and approaches the life with a will power. Even brutal rape can’t disturb her much. She is a representative of post modern bold girls. The movie also breaks al the morality codes. It brings out certain innovative thoughts in man-women relationship as well as sex.
Liberation of body
is the main theme of the movie. The movie doesn’t oppose the role of physical relation in love. The entire movie is come forward with several innovative thoughts. 22 female Kottayam movie deconstructs Victorian morality and show a new path to Malayalam film industry.
Positives of the movie
Good direction is the main highlight of the movie. Aashiq Abu has done a decent job. Thanks to Aashiq for avoiding certain unbearable gimmicks in this movie.

Music and background score composed by Rex Vijay and Bijibal was blend with the theme. Editing by Vivek Harshan maintains the thrill and tone of the movie throughout with the same spirit. Viewers could get the feeling of a
. Rima Kallingal has done a brilliant work in this movie. Tessa.K . Abraham is the most powerful character in her acting career. She had given her best in this movie. Fahad Fazil,as usual delivers his character with that much ease. Fahad should be appreciated for selecting such a gray shaded role without considering image problem as others. The performance of Fahad in the climax scene is worth mentioning. The bible quoting used at the interval is also a brilliant one. The director also used certain surrealistic scenes. On the whole the movie is an extremely innovative one. It breaks all conventional notions. This bold attempt was really a shocking experience to the so called voyeuristic in Kerala. It is also a vital reply for those who always complain about the lack of female centered stories in Kerala. The script of Abhilash and Shyam is bold and sincere one. Climax scenes are the most thrilling part of the film.
Negatives of the movie
The message provided from the film may be misinterpreted. We can’t deny the possibility of misusing such a message. As the other new generation films this film also considers politics and political parties as a problematic thing. There are one or more hints in that film for such reading. Influences of other films are directly visible in certain scenes. A kind of confusion is visible in the film especially in the portrayal of Tessa. K. Abraham. The tone of male chauvinism can be visible in certain parts.
Verdict of the movie
22 Female Kottayam is really a path breaking movie in the Malayalam film industry. It is a bold attempt in this Hippocratic society. A class movie in all sense. Special thanks to Aashiq for avoiding gimmicks which test the patience of sensible viewers. Those who is in search of a good and fresh movie can set your foots to nearby theaters without a second thinking. In brief 22 Female Kottayam is a movie with an extra bone from the director with an extra spine. Everybody should watch this movie in the theater itself and promote it. Such brave attempts should be appreciated. Hats off to Aashiq Abu & crew.
