“In a society that finds ways to point fingers at women for the intimate-partner violence they face, it is common to ask: why didn’t she leave? Here in Appan, though Kuttyamma is blamed by at least one character for tolerating Itty, we also witness a gender role reversal and find the answer to a question no one asks: why doesn’t he leave?”

“Appan might remind one of the films that occupied the Malayalam television realm in the mid-90s before the tacky soap operas usurped the space.”
