Glad tidings

LJ PPAK 001Today I have two glad tidings to share! First Pullippulikalum Aattinkuttiyum, my next movie has completed shooting schedule. Second, I am off to Hyderabad for Filmfare awards. As of now, I’m informed that the best director award for last year awaits me!

We shot `Pullippulikalum Aattinkuttiyum’   in the midst of the worst flood Kuttanad witnessed in last forty years and have a lot of invaluable moments during the progress of shooting. The subjects and visuals we experienced could well become a novel, if I elaborate. I shall write one after another in the blog for you. `Pullippulikalum Aattinkuttiyum’ would reach theatres by 9th August. Now am catching a flight to Hyderabad. Shall write in detail as I get back… Till then adieu!



Annayum Rassoolum…

Dear Friends..

Rajiv Ravi's directorial debut

Annayum Rassoolum

Extraordinary beauty of shots and sensitive making has made Annayum Rasoolum an enviable cinema experience. Fahad fazil has done complete justice to his role, great performance! All other actors are harmoniously blended into the body of the film and it’s unique! Loved all of them especially Haider of Ashiq Abu. Rajeev Ravi has proved himself to be a director to look forward to. Well done and great going!!



Choicest Wishes for Samvritha!

ImageWe concluded shoot of Ayalum Njanum Thammil at Munnar on Saturday. It held another emotional angle for me as it was the last day in the acting career of Samvrutha Sunil, the talented actress who stood in front of camera for the first time for my directorial venture Rasikan, now signing off from silver screen with another venture of mine!!


She has been part of films for almost 10 years..You know she has tried consistently to be part of good cinema. As the director who introduced her acting talent to films, I was proud to see her focused attempt to be professional in all work that she accepted irrespective of the screen time and kind of role she was offered.


My team along with me wish her the best as she enters a new phase of life from November 1st..! May Almighty shower choicest blessings for her future!
