Aakashagopuram (2008)

Aakashagopuram is an adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen classic Master Builder.

Set in London among the Indian immigrant community, it tells the story of Albert Samson (Mohanlal), a middle-aged architect who has clawed his way to prominence. His single-minded focus on his job, however, has hardened him and prevented him and his wife Alice (Swetha Menon) from having a meaningful private life.

Into this tension comes Hilda Varghese (Nithya Menen), a vivacious young woman to whom Samson had promised “a kingdom” when she was twelve years old.

As Samson struggles with the destructive consequences of his monomanical pursuit and his growing fear that he has lost his creative powers, the mysterious Hilda helps him gain a glimpse of his former robust self.

Known for his deep commitment to female empowerment through his films, K P Kumaran in Aakashagopuram paints an intriguing portrait of one man’s consuming desire for success.
