Spanish Masala with a Kerala flavor
I saw the film `Beautiful’ directed by V.K.Prakash yesterday. I had seen `Swapna Sanchari’ a couple of days back. These two films reiterated my belief in Malayalam cinema. Those who have been singing praises of other language films should take note of these films that kindle our hope further in the art form!
Beautiful is as charming as its name. Swapna Sanchari is a film with a message.
Beautiful interests the viewer with novel story telling. There is no doubt that this film is the best so far from the director. Anoop Menon has positioned himself at an admirable status as script writer. And Jayasurya has selected the best role in his career through `Beautiful’! The performance of all main characters by Jayasurya, Anoop, Meghna and supporting roles by Tini Tom, Nandu and a host of other actors are commendable. For the way the story is told and the revelation of the plot through the characters, VKP and his young soldiers need to be given a big applause!! Hats off to you!
Saw Indian rupee!
Was able to see a few life like characters whom I have come across at different stages in my life.
Since last few years Ranjith has been like that…
Each of his movies makes me wonder ” why haven’t I thought about it before???”
J.P is the most memorable character Prithvi has ever done in his film career so far.
This character represents today’s …ambitious youth.
J.P is a fresh breed in contrast with the typical, good natured, well mannered Heroes, he is imperfect and has humanly weaknesses…
This is what makes this character unique and realistic.
I loved the movie INDIAN RUPEE and I strongly recommend this film to all the viewers who love and enjoy good cinema!
Please make your visit to theatres at your earliest!
I know it’s a huge gap! And loads of news to tell you! `Spanish Masala’ is my new film. The cast from Malayalam includes Dileep, Kunchacko Bobban, Biju Menon, Kala Ranjini, Vinaya Prasad, Nelson and Gopalan. Remaining set of actors will be from Europe. Benny P.Nayarambalam writes the screenplay, Loganathan wields the camera, Gokuldas does art direction, Ranjan Abraham handles editing and make up to be done by Sreejith Guruvayur. Costume designers are Arun Manohar and Aravind.R. The film is being produced by Naushad with Big screen as the banner. Nazim and Sajith are line producers. Vinod Shornur will be the production controller.
As the name suggests the story has Spain in the backdrop. Shooting will commence at Madrid and nearby locations. Spanish Masala is a love story with a humorous tint. I was flying along with the scripting, song composition and location hunt that I could not fetch you the nuances of getting them together! As you know I am still on Cinema Karyangal in Amrita TV as well. But let me assure you now not to trample with this thread that ties both of us together and keep giving you the news as warm as suggested by the name of the film!
We have a new song writer Venugopal for whom Vidyasagar sets the music. Venugopal so far has written four songs for us and has an advertisement industry background.
We did reckee trips to Spain, Austria and Check republic of which I will be detailing in the next post. Till then you take care,
