How will they know who you are? For somebody like me, who doesn’t come from a film family, access happens when you show your talent repeatedly. For an outsider, who is no one’s son or daughter or nephew or niece, the only way to gain access is to show your work, your merit, that’s when people notice you.” In his case also, the actor shar...

Sufiyum Sujatayum review: A beautiful story of love and redemption that lacks impact

Sufiyum SujatayumDirector: Naranipuzha ShanavasCast: Aditi Rao Hydari, Dev Mohan, Jayasurya, Siddique, Hareesh Kanaran and Valsala MenonSufiyum Sujatayum, the first mainstream Malayalam film to be released on Amazon Prime, is a story of forbidden love and redemption. While this is not a film without its shares of flaws, it still manages to charm us with its fairytale romance and as a musical drama. This story of a speech-impaired girl (Aditi Rao Hydari) from an upper caste Hindu family falling head over heels for a Sufi saint (Dev Mohan) is built on the concept of forbidden love but doesn’t offer much of a conflict. As a musical love story, Sufiyum Sujatayum has a lot going for it from the first frame. M Jayachandran’s soul-stirring music and Anu Moothedath’s visuals work ...
