I was more satisfied with Ee Ma Yau than my other movies: Lijo Jose Pellissery
Lijo Jose Pellissery’s films are known for their out of the box themes and uniqueness in treatment. His last release ‘Angamaly Diaries’ was a huge sensation that was talked about nationally. His next, ‘Ee Ma Yau’ is yet to be released but the movie has already won him prestigious Kerala State Award for best director.
National award winner PF Mathews has penned the dialogues and screenplay of this movie. The title Ee Ma Yau itself is a very peculiar one, which is the acronym of Eesho Maryam Ouseph. The movie shot in Chellanam is based on the lives of people in the coastal area. The narrative is primarily centred around a death. Shoot for the movie was completed in just 18 days time.
After winning the State Award, Lijo Jose Pellissery said that he is comparatively more satisfied with Ee Ma Yau than the other movies he has made so far. Ee Ma Yau won a total of three awards at the State level. Poly Valsan won the best supporting actress award and Renganaath Ravee won the award for best sound designer.
Ee Ma Yau was initially supposed to hit screens on December 1 and a preview show for industry insiders was also held a couple of days (November 29) before that in Kochi. Celebrities heaped extremely positive reviews after the show. However, the release got pushed much to the disappointment of the audience.
Apparently, the makers are looking for a film festival to hold its premiere before making a mainstream release. It is now expected to hit theatres only by May or June. The movie stars Chemban Vinod Jose, Vinayakan, Dileesh Pothan and a bunch of newcomers in major roles. Technical crew includes cinematographer Shyju Khalid, composer Prashanth Pillai and editor Deepu Joseph. The movie is produced by Rajesh George Kulangara’s RGK Cinemas.
