Man of the Story
(Kathapurushan)

by Adoor GOPALAKRISHNAN

Kunjunni is the man of the story. Entering college, communism is fashionable and he takes it up naturally. But he soon gets disgusted with the existing political parties and true to his convictions, he joins a Maoist faction. Kunjunni, who has been running a print shop in town, is an unmistakable suspect and is arrested when police stations and landlords are attacked. Eventually, he is released from prison when the court judges him not guilty. Now a lonely free man, he searches for his childhood friend, Meenakshi. He finds her, marries her and takes her to his ancestral house.
