No other director had explored the emotions of human beings in this century, like Anjali Menon. Her movies are basically " an ocean of love ". Humans beings are literally her weapons. Koode was also built on emotions, which was so pure. Essence of true relationships can be really seen here, especially between Joshua & Jenny. The feeling we get while we watch these two is still priceless. It's beyond our words! Watching Jenny was like drinking an energy drink. If we have a sister like Jenny, then our life will be definitely like a heaven. On the other hand Joshua is the face of some harsh realities we know in real. That's why some of us like to remember Koode, more for Joshua.
Joshua is not a stranger for us. There are many Joshuas around us, who sacrificed their youth & childhood for the family. The scene where he says he doesn't know the feeling of going to college, we can feel the anger & pain of such Joshuas. But we never felt like hating him, for expressing his feelings. Instead we also felt sorry for him. His parents & sister loved him, but he never got the opportunity to feel it in real, as he was always busy working for his family. Love has to be expressed sometimes. He was desperate for love.
When he got the love he deserved, we saw the changes in him. The healing power of love calmed all his frustrations & literally gave him a new birth. When he finds his father's love in those toys, or in the moment, where he refuses to sell their van, you can see the changes that brought by love. Love heals everything & Joshua is a perfect example of that.
While we watch it for the first time, you might think, why it's Prithviraj as Joshua, as Joshua was a soft, ordinary man. Prithvi rarely did such natural roles. But while the movie reaches the latter portions, you will get an answer for it. No other actor of this generation can handle those scenes like Prithvi did. He has a unique ability to convey certain emotions. In the end, When we hear " Jenni Poyi ", along with his tearful eyes, you can feel it to the maximum.
Time & distance mean nothing between brothers & sisters. They are always in each other’s heart, like Joshua & Jenny.
