January Oru Orma is a 1987 Malayalam film that tells the tale of a young couple who face several challenges in life. The film stars Mohanlal, Karthika, and M.G. Soman in the lead roles. The story is set in a small village, where Chandran (Mohanlal) and Radha (Karthika) are in love. Chandran is a talented artist who aspires to become a successful painter, but his father (M.G. Soman), a wealthy businessman, doesn't approve of his artistic pursuits. He wants Chandran to join the family business and contribute to its growth. However, Chandran's passion for art is so strong that he finds it hard to resist it.

Chandran's father's disapproval leads to a conflict between the father and son. This conflict only intensifies when Chandran's father arranges his marriage to a business associate's daughter. Chandran refuses to get married and decides to leave his family to pursue his dreams of becoming an artist.

Chandran moves to the city, where he tries to establish himself as a successful artist. However, his journey is not easy as he faces many obstacles, including financial difficulties and rejection from art galleries. Meanwhile, Radha is forced to marry another man, but she can't forget about Chandran and his dream of becoming an artist.

As time passes, Chandran becomes a successful artist, and his paintings start gaining recognition. However, his past catches up with him when he meets his father again, who is bedridden and has been diagnosed with a critical illness. Chandran's father forgives him for his past mistakes, and Chandran returns to his village to take care of him.

The movie January Oru Orma deals with several themes, including love, passion, determination, and family values. Mohanlal's portrayal of Chandran is exceptional, as he does a fantastic job of portraying the emotional rollercoaster that Chandran goes through while following his passion. Karthika's performance as Radha is equally impressive, as her character's unrequited love and her struggles in a forced marriage are well portrayed.

The film's direction, by Joshiy, is excellent, and he does a great job of capturing the essence of village life and the journey of a young artist with passion. The movie's music, composed by Johnson, is also memorable, with the songs "Kannadi Chillolum" and "Ponveene" becoming chartbusters.

Overall, January Oru Orma is a heartwarming movie that portrays the journey of a young artist's passion and the challenges he faces along the way. The film's performances, direction, and music make it a must-watch for Malayalam movie enthusiasts.
