Awards and I…..!

Spanish Masala was done in 2011. But it got released only in the beginning of 2012. This year saw two more releases- `Diamond Necklace’ in May and Ayalum Njanum Thammil’ towards the end of year. Ayaalum Njaanum Thammil bagged all other awards except Asianet and Jayhind awards of the year-Amritha TV awards, Surya TV and Producers Association awards, awards from Qatar, Dubai, Kerala state film awards…and now SIIMA awards as latest in the line!

More than the glitter of awards, I am consoled by the wider acceptance this film gathered amidst micro levels in criticism from internet and mainstream Malayalam media.  The recognition is based mostly on the creative potential and strenuous effort of the team including producer Prem Prakash, writers Bobby and Sanjay, Cinematographer Jomon T.John, art directors Gokul das and Mohan das, music composer Ouseppachan, lyricist Vayalar Sarath Chandra Varma, editor Ranjan Abraham and all other technicians.

I cannot but mention one name. And that’s Prithviraj! Preliminary form of the story was told to Prithviraj. He was the one who realized that I could do the film better and suggested my name to the producer and script writers. Here is my gratitude for the insight and belief he expressed!

While writing this at the tail months of 2013, I share the strength and recognition bestowed by this film with him, who is the original source of existence of Ayaalum Njaanum thammil!

  1. Really liked ” Ayalum Njaum Thammil’ and “Diamond Necklase” Genuine Lal Jose movies. But never mentioned the Spanish Masala, it may directed by one of new crew in Lal jose team, there were no Lal jose touch in that film.

  2. Ayaalum Njaanum Thammil is LJs very best. I like this, along with Achanurangatha veedu, diamond necklace and arabikatha. In 1,2,3 &4 spots. hoping for more.

  4. Hello Mr. Lal Jose,
    I am a big fan of your films. Ayalum njanum thammil was a beautiful movie which showed the acting talent of Prithviraj rather than showing his six pack body. I will keep watching your movies.. they are really great works…

  6. ഇന്നിറങ്ങുന്ന പല സിനിമകളും പ്രേക്ഷകന്റെ ക്ഷമയെ പരീക്ഷിക്കുന്നതാണ് ലാല്‍ജോസ് സര്‍ ഏറെക്കെറെ വ്യത്യസ്ഥത പുലര്‍ത്തുന്നുണ്ട് എല്ലാം മറന്നു ആസ്വദിക്കാനും കണ്ടിറങ്ങുമ്പോള്‍ മനസ്സില്‍ വല്ലാത്തൊരു ഭാരമായി അനുഭവപ്പെടുകയും ചെയ്യുന്ന എത്രയോ സിനിമകള്‍ കണ്ടവാരാണ്നമ്മള് ‍ അതുപോലൊന്നുപോലും യാതൃശ്ചികാമായിപ്പോലും ഇപ്പോല്‍ സംഭവിക്കുന്നില്ല എന്നൊരു വേദനയുണ്ട് ….
