Chathuram Star Cast
The ensemble cast of Chathuram is led by Swasika, who has proven her acting prowess through movies like Vasanthi,
Kumari, and Prabha. Alongside Swasika is Roshan Mathew, known for movies like Cobra, Choked, and Night Drive. Here is the list of Chathuram Cast and crew members
Alencier Ley Lopez
In addition to the talented cast, the film is directed under the direction of Siddharth Bharathan, who has also co-written the screenplay with Vinay Thomas.
The plot of Chathuram entails the story of a young woman, Selena (an applaudable portrayal given by Swasika), who is married off to an older man, Eldho (played by Alencier). Eldho, who is twice the age of Selena and is a habitual abuser, reveals his true nature to her, and she gets captured in the toxic web of this abusive marriage.
However, things change when Eldose is involved in an accident that leaves him paralyzed. Soon, a home nurse named Balthazar enters the scene and is instantly infatuated with Selena.
As the narrative of the film progresses, new characters are added to the story, and Selena begins her cunning plan to manipulate everyone in her favor. The story explores the concept of the femme fatale and the use of chess as a metaphor to depict the change in power and how the pieces (here, people) are manipulated cleverly by Selena.
At the end of the film, Eldho feels trapped, just like Selena felt at the beginning of the movie. However, the film’s second half could have been better, as it focused on Balthazar’s helplessness rather than Selena’s victory.
The Chathuram full movie is available to stream on Saina Play and can be rented from YouTube as well.
The trailer for Chathuram, starring Swasika in the lead role, premiered on YouTube under the banner of Saregama Malayalam on October 28, 2022. Furthermore, the video has garnered over 3.7 million views on the platform and received a positive response from the audience.
