The 2013 Malayalam film Artist tells the story of two artists, Michael and Gayatri, who are married and living in Bangalore. Michael, played by Fahadh Faasil, is a successful artist while Gayatri, played by Ann Augustine, is struggling to find her place in the art world. As the movie progresses, we see how the couple navigates through their personal and professional lives, dealing with their own insecurities and egos. Michael, who has achieved fame and success as an artist, struggles to stay relevant and maintain his position. While Gayatri, who is highly talented, feels overshadowed by her husband's success and struggles to find her own voice.

The movie is not just about the art world but also explores various themes such as love, betrayal, competition, and compromise. The couple's relationship goes through various ups and downs, and we see how they try to support each other while dealing with their own individual problems.

Krishnachandran plays the role of Michael's friend, who is also a successful artist. He constantly reminds Michael about the impermanence of fame and the need for introspection to create meaningful art.

The movie also delves into the darker side of the art world, where personal relationships and emotions can often be exploited for personal gain or profit. Michael's mentor, a successful art curator, tries to manipulate him into creating certain types of art that would bring in more money but would compromise his artistic integrity.

Overall, the movie is a nuanced exploration of the lives of artists and the struggles and pressures they face in the world. The performances by the lead actors are outstanding, and the film's direction and cinematography are excellent.

Artist is a movie that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to find their place in the world or pursue their passion against all odds. It is a deeply emotional and thought-provoking film that is not to be missed.
