It’s a dream for every muslim in this world to visit Hajj once in their lifetime.Adaminte Makan Abu is about the desire of a poor attar(perfume seller) Abu and his wife to make a journey to Hajj.With the money they saved,they make arrangements for the travel. Though they are helped by good-hearted people,the cow and the jackfruit fruit tree,they aren’t able to make the journey. The climax ends with a strong message and makes our eyes filled with tears.
Madhu Ambat’s cinematography is mind-blowing .Well scripted and brilliantly directed ,every single thing in this movie-the cows,the jackfruit tree,the tree where Ustad sits( saint in the village),the scar of Abu’s hand has a heartwarming characterization attached to it.
