Among the greatest of Malayalam writers, 2011-09-29 01:22:23
Reviewer: AU Dubai
There are only two Malayalam writers who continues to astound me; Basheer and O. V. Vijayan. It is not to say that others havent had their moments. But none who have transcended the era in which they wrote book to remain the languages best ever. These two maestros took the languages to different extremes unimaginable then or now and changed the language forever.
Basheer amaze me with the sheer simplicity of language in portraying a world that would have been considered beyond the reach such simple language, but for Basheer. To me Basheer will always be the Sultan of the Malayalam language.
While Basheer unveiled the potency of Malayalam, O. V. Vijayan took it to a zenith unmatched in the history of Malayalam literature with Kazakkinte Ithihasam. If Basheer could be the greatest Malayalam novelist, then Kazakkinte Ithihasm remains its greatest novel.
I discovered the book in my late teen, some twenty years after the book had taken whole generation of Malayalam readers by storm. A generation later also there was no difference as I was gently transported into the magical world of Kazak. Another 20 years later as I look back, I cannot help thinking that never has Malayalam peaked as it had in the hands of O. V. Vijayan with Kazak. In fact It remains Malayalams greatest novel as well its greatest poetry because the prose Vijayan conjured up was more poetic than anything ever attempted in Malayalam poetry.
I have been reading this book now nearly for 25 years, often a paragraph here or chapter there, or often the whole book for the umpteenth time. Reading as someone who read Bible or Qaran or Gita to address a fear or feel the enlightenment or just for the sake of it. Kazakkinte Ithihasam remains my Malayalam literary equivalent of Bible or Gita or Qaran.
The Legend of O. V. Vijayan and Kazak will always live on. If you even pretend to love Malayalam, read this book once at least.

Reviewer: Usman Alangadan Abu Dhabi - U.A.E.
I have never read like this book in my life. I respect Basheer,Thagazhi, SK Pottakkad, MT , Uroob Mugundan like that so many Our great writers. But, Vijayan ! He is (no death for him-I believe)the great writer ever! When I came here before 18 years this the only book I brought with me.

Reviewer: Varun Chennai
There is no question or argumnet that this book can be considered as one among the best in malayalam literature. But I can never say its the milestone or yet to come another work like this in malayalam literature. Its didnt gave a reading experience more than what Anand or MT gave in their best works.
A resounding experience, 2003-04-01 05:47:39
Reviewer: Koramangal Industrial Layout,
Khasak is a resounding experience. A milestone in the history of Malayalam Literature. Its not only the masterpiece of Vijayan. Its the masterpiece of our language. Yet to write a novel which can challenge Khasak. A great loss if not read.
I want to review this book.
