|Sidhartha Siva’s Malayalam movie, ‘Aanu’, narrates the predicament of two ladies|
Actor-director Sidhartha Siva’s Aanu (Yes) is ready to be screened on the twenty seventh International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) below the Malayalam Cinema Today class. It marks the debut of actor-writer Sajitha Madathil as a scenarist.
A divorcee, Sudharma (Sajitha) is a house baker and is ready for a supply individual, particularly on a day when she has acquired one of many greatest orders…a 10-kg wedding ceremony cake. That is when younger Alma (Namitha Pramod) comes to fulfill her and Sudharma errors her for a supply lady. Later, Sudharma involves know that Alma has a distinct motive and that their lives are linked.
An award-winning theatre individual, author and actor, Sajitha says she had written this story for theatre. “I had written it through the pandemic and had shared it with a number of of my shut mates, together with Sidhu (Sidhartha Siva), with whom I used to be engaged on one other script. It was his thought to make it into a movie with out overhauling what I had written. So, he set the whole movie in a room with the 2 characters. The complete narrative rides on feelings and dialogue. That room turns into the stage. Instead of going for the everyday format in movies, he experimented with the idea,” says Sajitha, including that the director is all the time sport for brand new issues.
Namitha, who has been a part of mainstream cinema for a few years now, calls it a ‘perpetually particular’ venture on her Instagram web page.
Shot in Kochi over 10 days, the movie is produced by Sidhartha Siva and B Rakesh. Singer Manjari has scored the music for lyrics written by poet, Vijayarajamallika. Meanwhile, that is Sidhartha’s fifth movie that has made it to the IFFK.
Aanu can be screened on December 11 (Kalabhavan, 2.45pm), December 13 (Kairali, 11.15am) and December 14 (New-2, 9.45am).
