C/O Saira Banu is a 2017 Indian Malayalam film directed by Antony Sony. It stars Manju Warrier, Amala Akkineni and Shane Nigam in lead roles. It is a legal drama film. The film showcase reprise of actor Amala Akkineni in Malayalam cinema after 25 years. It released in India on 17 March 2017 and received mixed reviews from the box office. The story shows life of two women Saira Banu and Annie John Tharavady who defend in their ways to safeguard what they care.

Saira Banu is a post woman who leads a peaceful life with her adopted son Joshua Peter, a college student. Joshua is a son of a famous photographer and Saira was his adopted child. Unexpected death of the photographer made Saira a mother to his Son. The duo share a mother-son unique bond. Joshua gets scapegoated in a case where there are chances he might face life imprisonment and Saira tries to help him. On the other hand, Annie John Tharavadi, is a leading advocate and divorced. The minimally educated Saira and the fierce advocate Annie comes to face to face in court. Saira tries to defend her son and it appears Annie has a conflict of interest in the hit and run case. It is Annie's policy that what is true to an advocate is the truth which they defend. Which side wins the case forms the crux of the story.


Have to admit, it is a must watch movie. Beautifully Directed , the movie had a flow and did keep one in a suspense mode.
