Ordinary lives can appear undramatic at the best of times. Taking such a life into focus and making a cinema on it may not be always entertaining. But Jeethu Joseph has beautifully made an ordinary life quite interesting. 'Life of Josutty' traverses through myriad hues of human emotions.

Josutty is a simple farmer who leads a contended life with his father Joseph and mother Shoshamma. He falls in love with his next door neighbor and childhood friend Jessie, played by Rachana Narayanankutty. A few incidents happen which forrces Jesse away from Josutty. Josutty now has a lot of problems and burdens to contend with on a daily basis. And because of some family problems he is forced to marry a divorcee named Rose who is a nurse.

Josutty's immigration to New Zealand with Rose and his transformation from a farmer to an NRI is all depicted well. The highs and lows of Josutty's life is what the movie is all about. Though there is a lot of emotions running all over the place, and occasional overload of grief, the narration has been kept undramatic and simple.

The first half has a lot many instances which provide laughter. Some sequences are a bit over the top. But they are a welcome interlude in the narrative. The script by Ratesh Varma, with Jayalal's story is very much realistic. On the whole, this is a family movie.

Ravichandran's visuals are soulful be it the rustic farmer's life or the sleek New Zealand life. Anil Johnson's music is also apt for the story. Performances by all the actors are brilliant. One to watch out for is Hareesh Peraady's performance as Josutty's father. Jeethu Joseph has once again come up with a good cinema. The makers' repeated warning that there is no twist of suspense is very much true. Its life - slow and steady like the beat of the heart.
