Madambi is a celluloid saga that falls squarely into the replication category. Rehashing is the keyword in it, and as every moment, event and character is redone and fixed up in fresh slots, credibility takes the back seat to sentimentality.

Ever since his irresponsible father vanished without a trace one fine day, Gopalakrishna Pillai (Mohanlal) has taken upon himself the arduous task of supporting a family - his mother (KPAC Lalitha) and younger brother Ramakrishna Pillai (Ajmal Ameer). Having had to fiercely grapple with fate in his teens, Pillai grows up a strict and stringent money lender with a stone instead of a heart. With arch rival Parameswara Kurup (Sriraman) and his sons (Siddique, Vijaya Kumar and Kiran Raj) trying fresh tricks off their armory, and with the arrival of a new generation bank at Elavattom, with a shrewd and extremely tactful Manager, Jayalekshmi (Kavya Madhavan) at its helm, Pillai gets all geared up to retain his standing that’s at stake.

The feudalism in Madambi is most often relegated to its chief character names. Of course the feudal stamps are all over the place, be it the fabulous ancestral mansion, the abundant coconut heaps on the front yard, the forever subservient servant crowd, and last but certainly not the least, the majestic tusker that’s caught on frame every now and then. In spirit though, the film could be drawn down to a fundamental emotional conflict between two brothers. It’s here that it moves far away from its tagline and occupies a conservative slot.
