Shyamaprasad: From Akale to Arike

Submitted by on October 10, 2011 – 9:37 pmNo Comment |

Easily one of the best Malayalam directors of our times, Shyamaprasad has time and again impressed us with his films. Right from his first film ‘Kallu Kondoru Pennu’ to his latest, yet to be released film ‘Electra’, Shyam has gifted us with distinctly diverse cinematic experiences.

Most of us, who have been closely following Shyam’s filmography would remember his ‘Akale’, (Far Beyond), a screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ ‘The Glass Menagerie’ , that starred Prithviraj, Geethu Mohandas and Sheela in key roles. The much acclaimed film, was a hot favorite at the festival circuit as well.

Seven years later, Shyamaprasad is all set to shoot his new film ‘Arike’ (Close By), that would open up new vistas of a romance before the viewers. The film that has been scripted by the director himself, has Dileep doing the lead role, along with Mamta Mohandas and Samvrutha Sunil.

Dileep plays a character by the name of Shanthanu in the film, while Mamta plays Anuradha and Samvrutha plays Kalpana. The film would be shot on locations at Kozhikode. Through the film, Shyamaprasad hopes to bring back memories of lilting romantic films of the seventies as ‘Rajanigandha’ and ‘Choti Si Baat’.
