Step back in time to films of originality,soulful script and evergreen songs. If I'm not watching Golmaal you will catch me with Choti Si Baat. Palekar is my imaginary best buddy and Angry Young Vijay is my beau. They buy me polka dots and we spend a lot of summers in jalopies riding through the old streets of Bombay singing Kishoreda songs. Sometimes we bump into Hepburn,Utpal Dutt and bad boy Jack Nicholson and we all relive the wonderful classic movies. Want to join our carpool?

Imagine a Malayalam movie without Mohanlal or Mammootty.
Imagine a coastline with friends hanging out all the time.
Imagine a story about friendships and general fun without fights and villians.
That is Swagatham movie. A 1989 film with an extensive star cast. With Jagathi's histrionics not-withstanding, there is romance and hey! you can choose which one you want - the sweet and shy kind which Parvathy and Asokan share or the serious one which Urvashi feels later on.
A story about friends, young guns ,youth and their immature nature but true feelings, Swagatham takes you back to your college days and the time when chatting meant meeting for an icecream rather than feeling a 'ping' vibration in your pocket from your android phone.
