I saw so many luscious cotton sarees in the movie Drishyam last night!  We got a special showing of the South Indian film (in Malayalam with no subtitles), and I coveted almost every one of the leading lady’s costumes.  These four  placed near the top of my list; the green and deep slate blue noteworthy for its unusual combination of colours, while the rich pumpkin with maroon-ish brown saree above was my personal favourite.  The pattern of star shapes on black was incredible on the big screen, where the pallu design really showed up.  Love to know where all the film’s sarees were woven…

Below is the whole “family” with Mohanlal as the dad, and the young actresses who played the daughters.  In my own collection, I do have a saree quite similar to Meena’s soft brown and black one.  The Kerala scenery was incredible and the story excellent despite my not knowing the language.  Go watch the film if you have a chance, or catch one of the upcoming remakes in other South Indian languages, and see if the sarees are as yummy as these were.
