Chemmeen is Pillai’s best novel which expresses the aspirations, struggle and grief in the lives of the fisherman of Kerala. Chemmeen has so much to offer to the readers. Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai’s (Malayalam) novel Chemmeen, accepted as part of the UNESCO Collection of Representative Works - Indian Series, was translated by .

Unable to live with the man she loves, Karutthamma marries Palani, who, despite the scandal about his wife's past, never stops trusting her, a trust that is reaffirmed each time he goes to sea and comes back safe since the 'sea-mother' myth among the fishermen community goes that the safe return of a fisherman depends on the fidelity of his wife. Then, one night, Karutthamma and Pareekkutty meet and their love is rekindled while Palani is at sea, baiting a shark …

This is a great novel, but it is really poorly translated by Anita Nair. Knowing she's an editor and writer herself, I thought Ms. Nair would bring a great ear to the language of the book, but this is where she fails terribly. The language of the book in its original Malayalam is spare and direct, but Nair uses a lot of trivializing British and American idioms that spoil the rhythm and poetry of the novel, even to the point of distorting the meaning. At one point she uses the word "kerfuffle" to describe a fishermen's brawl. In another part of the book, she says something like "He gave her a tight slap," when the original translates more like "He gave her a nice hit across the face." There's no GREAT translation of Chemmeen yet, but Narayana Menon's translation (the first one) and the translation by the author, Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai, are both better than this one.

Award-winning book and later movie released 1965, `Chemmeen' was technologically advanced for its times. The photography was the best aspect of the whole film. The story line is tragic and is a soap opera type of theme about the pre-marital and later extra marital affair between a girl from the fishing community of Kerala and a Muslim fisherman. The movie has a tragic end. The actors did an excellent job. The music was superb. The movie won international awards and was later dubbed into English with the title `Anger of the Sea'.

The author really learned the culture, tradition, and practices of the fishermen community and incorporated them brilliantly into his novel. As a result, Chemmeen is a cultural, sociological, psychological, and scientific look at this community, and their belief systems as it existed in the 1950s Kerala.
