Mammootty’s Peranbu to premiere at the International Film Festival of Rotterdam!
Mammootty’s Peranbu has been under the wraps for over two years now. The movie directed by National award winner Ram marks Mammootty’s return to Tamil film industry after a long gap. Finally, the long wait is coming to an end as Peranbu is set begin its run on the festival circuit before its theatrical release.
The movie is having its world premiere at this year’s Film Festival of Rotterdam (IFFR). Rotterdam film festival is among the top ten film festivals in the world. The 47th edition of the prestigious film festival commenced on January 24 and will conclude on February 4.
The festival will showcase the best of world cinema in four sections: Bright Future, Voices, Deep Focus and Perspectives. Last year, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s controversial film Sexy Durga aka S Durga won the Hivos Tiger Award at IFFR and became the first Indian film to do so.
Ram is a much revered filmmaker, well known for his hard-hitting films like Katradhu Tamizh, Thanga Meengal and Taramani. Likewise, Peranbu also promises to be a quality film. Mammootty plays the role of Amudhan, a middle-class father working as a taxi driver abroad. The movie was in the news after it was revealed that transgender artist Anjali Ameer is playing a prominent role in the movie. Anjali, Baby Sadhana, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Kaniha and Samuthirakani also play significant roles in the movie.
Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music for Peranbu while editing is handled by multiple National award winner Sreekar Prasad. The movie is produced by PL Thennappan under the banner Sri Rajalakshmi Films.
