Plot

Abu Salim Kumar and Aishumma Zarina Wahab are an elderly Moplah Muslim couple living in Kerala's Malabar region Their aspiration is to go for Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca, and they sacrifice to achieve this aim Their son Sattar has migrated to the Middle East as a part of the Kerala Gulf boom with his family and has virtually discarded his parents Now in their late 70s, the couple save money so they can attend Hajj that year

Salim Kumar and Zarina Wahab as Abu and Aishumma, holding their new passports

Abu sells attar a perfume obtained from flowers, religious books and Unani medicines that nobody seems to want Aishumma breeds cattle and chickens, helping her husband realise their shared dream Abu feels as outdated and discarded by a fast-changing world as the traditional products that he sells

A school teacher Nedumudi Venu, Abu's friend, comes to his aid at his time of need Hyder Suraj Venharammud, a local teashop owner also empathises with Abu who in turn is frequently given genuine advice by a mysterious saint known simply as "Ustad" Tampi Antony Good-natured people try to help Abu by offering to lend him the amount but, as this goes against the accepted Islamic practices, he refuses to take anything

With the advancing years, Abu's desperation grows Finally, in frustration and distress, he sells his cow and old jackfruit tree Abu is helped by the manager of a travel agency Mukesh to get flight tickets and other documents for his journey A policeman Sasi Kalinga initially tries to reject Abu's passport application, but once he gets his usual bribe he becomes quite helpful The couple begins their preparations which include attending the Hajj preparation classes conducted by the travel agency, being vaccinated for meningococcal meningitis and buying new Ihram clothing Abu pays off even the smallest of his old debts as part of the preparations and travels miles to seek forgiveness from Sulaiman, a previous neighbour with whom he once fought

When the passports and the tickets are ready and a bus journey away in Kozhikode, the sawmill owner Kalabhavan Mani, while handing over the money for Abu's tree, says that its wood turned out to be rotten and useless He insists that Abu take the money, however, since his cause is noble Abu refuses it, saying that it wouldn't be halal and hence could anger God When he is sure that he cannot fulfill his dream, Abu reaches another conclusion — that the tree too had life, and several lives must have died when he cut the tree in front of his house Abu conjectures that maybe one of the reasons for his not being able to go on the journey On the dawn of the Hajj, Abu tells his wife that they will go the next year; he plants a new jackfruit sapling and is seen going to the mosque to pray on the morning of Hajj

Themes

The film conveys a universal theme along with many aspects of human relationship beyond caste and religion It is noted for projecting human values and inter-group harmony These motifs are particularly evident during the scenes in which the villagers coming for Abu's help include a Christian merchant Johnson, played by Kalabhavan Mani and a Hindu school teacher played by Nedumudi Venu With a simple plot, Adaminte Makan Abu also conveys the message of environmental conservation Man's relationship with nature and his fellow creatures is represented by a jackfruit tree and a domestic cow, which Abu sells with a heavy heart for money to go on the pilgrimage We see Abu cursing himself for cutting the tree, thereby destroying the habitat of innumerable living things

In the original theatrical version, there is a scene in which doubting shopkeepers muse that Abu must have got a cheque from Osama Bin Laden to pay for the trip Several critics have observed that this mentioning is intentionally done to make it a modern Muslim film The character of Ustad, the village oracle with powers of divine communion, also makes it a more Muslim film Notably,Adaminte Makan Abu does not have any truly negative characters Sathar, Abu's and Aishumma's only son who abandons his aged parents, is the only character with any negative aspects This mention depicts the problems faced by the destitute senior citizens in India, thus helping make Adaminte Makan Abu a socially caring film Globalisation is also a major concern; the film depicts the way globalisation has touched contemporary Kerala: Many of its men have gone to Dubai or other Gulf states for work and, even though they send money back, their absence has changed the region immeasurably

Some critics have felt that the characters as well as the setting are too idealistic Noted critic S Anandan observes that the modern-day village not far from a busy town is "idyllic" with "harmonious" residents but complains that so idealistic a view of village life is inappropriate: "the societal life in the village, reminiscent of rural Kerala in the 1980s with its crop of do-gooders and mystics, is too ideal to be true in current times But then, Salim Ahmed is out to picture life in a Basheerian habitat, where inter-religious" people are "gleeful" to share the earth with "pagan" living things Salim Ahamed replies that, while the characters are idealistic, such people do exist; someone like Abu's honesty and goodness to others helps him receive goodness from others

Production

Development

Adaminte Makan Abu was Salim Ahamed's debut feature He had the story in his mind for more than ten years

Development on the film began roughly a decade before it was released Adaminte Makan Abu marks the directorial debut of Salim Ahamed, who says that he had entertained the story in his mind for many years Upon graduating from college in early 2000s, Ahamed dreamed of joining the film industry but found it hard to break into and ended up a travel consultant It was the stories he heard and the people he met during this time that sowed the seeds for Adaminte Makan Abu The film's protagonists were inspired by a real-life couple Ahamed says that he was at the Jeddah airport, trying to solve the problem of too much baggage thanks to many gifts for family back home, when he met a couple coming back "after performing Umra" They had scrounged, lived simply, and saved their money in hopes of going on Hajj but "settled for Umra fearing they would never make it to the Hajj" He made friends with them and helped them with flight mishaps and hotel stays "During this period, I learnt a great deal about their undying spirit, life and the virtues they possessed"

The central character Abu was significantly inspired by a man named Aboottikka in Ahamed's home village who looked and behaved a lot like the central character In Ahamed's own words, the old couple he had met at the Umrah pilgrimage became Aboottikka and that in turn turned out to be Adaminte Makan Abu Ahamed said that he had written three basic plots during his college days One was based in a local school in Kerala, one was a thriller, and the third was the story of Abu He decided to film Adaminte Makan Abu since a number of people liked the story line; moreover, he wanted his first film to have a message and to be impressive It took only a month for Ahamed to prepare the final script The biggest challenge was to find a producer/financier Nobody was prepared to finance a non-commercial film like this one, so he started saving up his television pay cheques – but they were not enough Finally, he had to approach a friend and producer, Ashraf Bedi, to produce this film Ashraf Bedi was one of the producer of the film "shamboo" in which salim ahamed was a script writer Salim Ahamed used to discuss the story with Ashraf Bedi during the shooting of the film "shamboo" Ashraf bedi immediately agreed to produce the film jointly with Salim Ahamed as he was already familiar with the story

Casting

Both Ashraf Bedi And Salim Ahamed did considerable research before they finalised the cast and crew They decided to take the risk of filming with a serious theme when they secured Salim Kumar in the lead, although the actor did not have the glamour of a conventional hero They were confident that the risk would be minimal compared to the final result's worth On the sets of the 2010 film Best Actor Ahamed met the actor to convince him to play the role Ahamed says that Kumar was an obvious choice because of his popularity and his versatility It was Kumar's outstanding performance as a son who is forced to abandon his aged mother in Bridge, one of the ten films in the Kerala Cafe anthology, that made Salim Ahamed choose the actor for the role Kumar was initially reluctant to accept the role, since he was unsure about carrying the film as the star Ahamed, however, was confident, and assured Kumar that the film would have the top technicians in the field: He brought in the cinematography veteran Madhu Ambat, and Issac Thomas Kottukapally to handle the music Kumar, who is generally known for slapstick comedy roles, did not do any preparation for his role and accepted no payment for his participation Zarina Wahab, who had made a comeback in Malayalam films with Calendar, plays the lead female role in the film According to Ahamed, she was cast because she had the face of a Malabar Muslim

Aside from Kumar and Wahab, the film also stars several other actors like Kalabhavan Mani, Mukesh, Suraj Venjarammoodu, Nedumudi Venu and Jaffer Idukki in key roles Ahamed says that he wanted to work with the industry's best people from the beginning and that their liking for the subject made this relatively easy Madhu Ambat was doing a Malayalam film after a gap of nearly 12 years

Filming

Pattanam Rasheed did makeup for all the actors The artificial beard he used initially didn't match Kumar's skin tone so he imported a matching beard from Mumbai, spending his own money Shooting began on 7 November 2010 and took place in Thrissur and Kozhikode in Kerala Major sections were filmed from a house in Athani in Thrissur The set was made by debuting art director Jyothish on a shoestring of ₹2 lakh US$3,11860

The film was shot digitally using an Arriflex D-21 camera Cinematographer Madhu Ambat recalls that he had planned to use 16 mm film to further reduce costs but used 35 mm film instead since he wanted many long shots, which he says were helpful in showing the feeling of loneliness Ambat also experimented with lighting, and an unusual lighting pattern which closely matched the themes and motifs of the movie was chosen

The total budget was around ₹15 crore US$233,89350 To complete Adaminte Makan Abu, Ahamed had to spend every rupee raised from what he had saved up over the years working on scripts for television serials and assisting directors However the money saved was not sufficient to produce the film Ahamed recalls that when not a soul was ready to finance or produce the film he approached his friend and producer Ashraf Bedi co- producer of the movie "Shamboo" which Ahamed had scripted who immediately agreed to produce the film jointly It was from this stage the movie production picked up momentum, and principal production was completed in a mere 31 days To enhance its technical quality, Academy Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty redesigned and remixed the sound before the official screening for the Academy members in Los Angeles on 19 November A group of first-class technicians also came forward to revamp the film without payment Graphics were handled by Fies Thoppil

The film's television premier was on 7 November 2011 on Mazhavil Manorama, coinciding with the festival of Bakrid

Accusations of plagiarism

A controversy regarding the film's plot originated when the filmmaker Abbas Kalathod claimed that the story was taken from his short film Maruppacha, released eight years earlier "With the characters of Maruppacha given an elderly treatment and embellishing the story with exaggeration, Adaminte Makan Abu was made," he claimed Kalathod says that the 21-minute Maruppacha for which he had written the story, script and dialogue, narrate "a story of Bappu, a youth who spares a little of his day's earning in preparation for the Hajj He hands over the entire money to his neighbour, who nourishes such a wish In Qabalah, Abdullah dreams of a heavenly voice which says the God has accepted only Bappu's Haj On his return, Abdullah goes in search of Bappu The story ends when after a prolonged wandering they meet, and Abdullah tells the entire story to Bappu" Salim Kumar reacted, calling the allegations ridiculous He said, "Adaminte Makan Abu is yet to be released Without watching the film, the man who levelled the allegations came to the conclusion that its story is plagiarised I came across the story that he claimed to be similar to that of Adaminte Makan Abu The story penned by him bears resemblance to that of the film Kuttikkuppayam"

A similar story was narrated by the 8th-century Sufi saint Ibrahim ibn Adham In the story, it is a shoesmith who dreams of going for the Hajj pilgrimage

Reception

Critical reception

The film portrays Islam in its true light, by strongly conveying the message of oneness of all living beings —Pratibha Patil, Hon President of India

The film met with mostly acclaim from critics Mahmood Kooria has edited a volume in Malayalam compiling and collecting various studies and reviews on Adaminte Makan Abu The volume titled Adaminte Makan Abu: Drisyadarsanangalile Kaalavum Desavum Abu, Son of Adam: Time and Space in Visual Vison is published by Mathrubhumi Books, a leading publishing group in Kerala Gautaman Bhaskaran of The Hindustan Times rated the movie three-out-of-five stars, writing that it portrays an unrealistically ideal situation except for the couple's son and "plays out like a placid stream", although it is "a rare study in restraint" About the cinematography, the reviewer says that some shots are extraordinarily beautiful and convey emotions like gloom and loneliness The critic praises Kottukappally's background score, saying that it helps create the proper mood – one that goes back and forth from depression to happiness and hope He labelled the actors' performances "marvellous", with the leads receiving particular praise A critic from Easternkickscom rated it five-out-of-five stars and wrote that it is a simple story, with beautiful filming and acting, and "a rare insight into Muslim life in Kerala" The official website of the Institute of Contemporary Arts called Adaminte Makan Abu a story told gently of "irrepressible hope" and true friendship

Guy Lodge of Variety magazine stated that the story is told clearly and compassionately, but with a lack of "humour or grit", and thus lacking overt conflict because "Abu's gentle decency sees him escape or mollify one practical or personal opponent after another" The critic praised Ambat's cinematography but criticised Kumar's performance, saying he was obviously committed to the role but was "over-deliberate" J Hurtado of Canadian film website Twitch Film called it "a peaceful, contemplative" one and stated that it was regenerative to the spirit Lisa Tsering of The Hollywood Reporter said that, while the film was well-acted and the scenery in it was impressive, it was unlikely to do well outside of a specialised "art house" audience Paresh C Palicha of Mumbai-based Internet provider Rediffcom gave it a very positive review and praised it as "simple and beautiful" The review mostly praised the performances, direction and story, but gave it three-over-five stars because of emotional manipulation and an overly-positive view of a travel agency In Deccan Chronicle newspaper, Keerthy Ramachandran gave a five-star rating, writing the film should receive honours in "the history of Malayalam cinema" S Anandan of The Hindu published a positive review, saying that the film was hopeful for Malayalam cinema currently, according to the review, at its low point, due to its portrayal "of a devout old man's pursuit of spiritual bliss" The critic labelled the setting, however, as overly "idyllic" and idealistic and that Ahamed wants to show "a Basheerian habitat, where inter-religious individuals" happily live together with other "pagan" beings

T Sudheesh of the Thrissur City Journal concluded his review by saying that it is beautiful, "engaging and entertaining" and that "the film truly deserves the national award", being very worth watching Veeyen of Indian online portal Nowrunningcom highly praised the film, saying that its meticulous pacing and magnificent staging creates a sense of hope that should help humanity "in these testing times" though not explaining why he gave only three out of five stars A reviewer from the Chennai-based Internet provider Sifycom gave a five-star rating, saying it should make Malayalam proud and would "find its place among the most powerful films ever made in Malayalam" A reviewer from the online portal Oneindiain said that Ahamed took a simple story and "created a masterpiece" Bruce Fessier of The Desert Sun newspaper wrote that the film "defines piousness" with "a sweet, gentle tale", with a couple who accept "every outcome as God's will, never showing a trace of bitterness, except for their disappointment in their son" He felt it did not adequately explain the family division, but that this was "irrelevant" to the basic point, namely that piousness and faith in the ultimate future meant that "your disappointment in the here and now will never overwhelm" He rated Adaminte Makan Abu seven out of five and particularly praised the leads saying that he had difficulty telling they were acting After watching the film, famous orator and writer Sukumar Azhikode said that it "shows us how a Malayalam film should be" He praised Salim Kumar's performance, like Bruce Fessier saying that it was difficult to tell that Kumar was acting, not simply living as Abu

Adaminte Makan Abu received a few negative reviews as well For instance, Daniel Green from Cine-Vuecom gave 2 out of 5 stars, writing that it gave little "insight into the region's Muslim community" and was "neither superior, compelling nor innovative"

Commercial

Although the film received positive reviews from almost all corners, its revenues in the Kerala box-office were only average Many could not watch Adaminte Makan Abu from theatres since it was withdrawn a few days after the release According to Salim Kumar, the box-office revenues were not good in most areas, with the Muslim-dominated Malabar region being an exception

2012 Academy Awards Best Foreign Film submission

Adaminte Makan Abu was India's official entry to be considered for nomination in the Best Foreign Film category for the 84th Academy Awards It was chosen over 15 others by the Film Federation of India FFI to represent the country for the award Adaminte Makan Abu is the second Malayalam film the first one being Guru to be submitted for the Oscars Salim Ahamed was burdened heavily with promoting it in the United States for the Oscar jury According to Ahamed, promotional events such as showing the film in the US including at least six showings for the jury members would be necessary to get support for the nomination Ahamed also stated that the nomination would not directly result in monetary rewards, so nobody would loan him money for the purpose Lobbying began in October 2011 In an interview, Ahamed said that people abroad, particularly in the Gulf region, were of assistance There was not any support from the government or Malayalam film industry or even contacts from them Meanwhile, many political parties from Kerala urged the government to help raise funds for the film In reply, the Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy, said that Malayalam film industry had to make a unanimous demand for the state government to extend help to the makers of Adaminte Makan Abu, India’s official entry to the Oscars Salim Ahamed managed to jumpstart his Academy Awards campaign with a screening to a packed audience in the Charlie Chaplin screening room of Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles in early December 2011 However, in January 2012 the film did not make the final shortlist

2011

The film features an original score by Isaac Thomas Kottukapally Kottukapally did not want to confine the music to a particular region alone, as the subject and emotions are universal As the story is about going on Hajj, he used notes from Arabic scales but keeping it to the minimum until the Hajj theme comes on-screen and he used Arabic instruments like the oud and the mandolin, santoor, and sarod; these latter are close to the oud Kottukapally also used the tabla, flute, drums from North Kerala and also African drums Contrary to the usual practice in Malayalam films, the film used minimalist music: Kottukapally kept a lot of silence in Adaminte Makan Abu and used aarohana and avarohana before and after the silence

The soundtrack to Adaminte Makan Abu features songs composed by Ramesh Narayan with lyrics by Rafeeque Ahammed Released on Manorama Music, the soundtrack featured vocals by Shankar Mahadevan, Ramesh Narayan, Hariharan, Sujatha, Madhusree Narayan and Srinivas It received generally positive reviews: T Sudheesh of the City Journal labelling the songs "meaningful and heart rending" Keerthy Ramachandran of the Deccan Chronicle said that the music is "excellent" and "in tune with the" movie's mood, and that while the other singers have created beautiful music, Makka Madheena "triumphs" in carrying "the heart of the theme"

Plan for remake

In late May 2011, the Malayalam daily Madhyamam reported that Mumbai-based film company Mega Productions had approached Salim Ahamed with the idea of remaking Adaminte Makan Abu in Hindi Discussions were supposed to be held in early June, before the theatrical release of the original Later, reports came that Karan Johar's Dharma Productions had approached Ahamed to buy the rights Johar had already heard about the movie from Zarina Wahab According to the reports, Karan Johar was to direct with Shahrukh Khan in the role of Abu with Salim Ahamed also attached

Johar, however, later categorically denied any inclination to remake the film through his Twitter post, which stated among other things "On record am NOT planning the remake of the acclaimed malyalam film" However, Ahamed later revealed that Dharma Productions Karan's company had contacted him about buying the rights for the movie but did not get back to him "after the initial talks" Salim Ahamed discussed it with J P Dutta, who was eager to remake the hit in Hindi, but this did not work out In a November 2011 interview, Kumar said that a plan exists "to remake the film in four major Indian languages," but Salim Ahamed has said that he doesn't want to give anyone the rights
