Basheer's fictionalised prison memoir of his love affair with a voice. Basheer, in the men's prison, falls in love with Narayani, in the women's prison on the other side of the wall. By the time they arrange a tryst to meet inside the prison's infirmary, Basheer is released.

A signature tragicomic tale from the master.

i have read almost all of Bhashir's.we have COMPLETE WORKS OF VAIKOM MUHAMMED BHASHEER. the unbearable feeling after missing a chance of meeting someone who is recognised only by her voice and the feeling of upon released from prison.the writer puts you in a dilemma which cant be expressed fully ,it can only be experienced

that emotion which is difficult to express,only such a great writer like BHASHEER can pen down such aesthetic feelings

About the Book:
Mathilukal (Wall) is about the author himself and his never met love. both are imprisoned and separated by a huge wall that divides their prisons.

One could feel good of the life of prisoners, the freedom they enjoy by the way the author describes it, 'Why should I go to the jail outside the prison?!' The yearning for love and life makes it a compelling read.

ഇഷടായി!! വളരെ അധികം ഇഷടായി. "മതിലുകൾ" മാതരമലല ബഷീറിനെയും!

ബഷീറിനറെ യഥാർതഥ വയകതിതവം ഞാൻ ഇ നോവലിൽ കൂടെ അറിയുനനു. അദദേഹം ജയിൽ, അദദേഹതതിനറെയതായിടടുളള ഒരു ചെറിയ ലോകം ആകകുനനു. വാർഡറോടും, സഹ ജയിൽ വാസികളോടും വളരെയധികം സനേഹതതോടും ബഹുമാനതതോടും പെരുമാറുനനു ഒടുവിൽ "ലോകം തനനേ ഒരു വലിയ ജയിലലലേ" എനനുളള സതയാവസഥ പറയുനനു. തികചചും സാധാരണ ഒരു മനുഷയൻ.

എനനാലും നാരായണിയെയ കാണാൻ പററിയിലലെലലോ എനനുളള കാരയം വിഷമം വരുതതാതിരുനിലല. എനനാലും ആരാകും നാരായണി? അവൾ ചെയത തെററ എനതാകും?!

"You can go Mr Basheer; you are free!"said the jailor.
"Why should I be free......who wants freedom?"
What prompted Basheer to say that he did not want freedom from imprisonment? Read the beautiful story...

This is a classic. I can feel the voice of KPAC Lalitha throughout all pages. Also, pictured Mammootty & Sreenath since I saw the movie first.
