Peranbu to be screened at New Generations Independent Indian Film Festival, Germany
Mammootty’s ‘Peranbu’ continues to go places. The Ram directorial has been selected for screening at the 11th New Generations Independent Indian Film Festival, Frankfurt, Germany. Before its theatrical release in February this year, ‘Peranbu’ was screened at the International Film Festival of Rotterdam (IFFR), Shanghai International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of India (IFFI). It was recently selected for screening at the Korean Indian Film Festival, which was hosted by the embassy of India in Seoul, Indian Cultural Center Seoul-Busan and Korean Film Archive.
‘Peranbu’ tells the story of an affectionate father, Amudhavan, and his spastic teenage daughter, Paapa. Mammootty’s finely measured performance as the doting father whose subtle emotional outbursts that come from his helplessness was unanimously appreciated. Sadhana, who played the daughter’s part also received praise from all corners. Both the actors were expected to be top contenders for the National awards, but were unfortunately snubbed which lead to many expressing their displeasure.
