Richie director Gautham Ramachandran raves about Sudani from Nigeria!
Debutant director Zakariya’s Sudani from Nigeria is gearing up to hit screens this month. The movie starring Soubin Shahir and African actor Samuel Abiola Robinson is a football based film set in the Malabar region. The promos have all been very impressive and the movie has a positive pre-release buzz in social medias.
Recently, director Gautham Ramachandran of ‘Richie’ fame recently watched a preview of the movie and looks like he was bowled over by it. He has written a review of sorts on his Facebook which reads,
SUDANI FROM NIGERIA…. Happened to catch a special preview of this beauty..Malayalam Cinema takes the definition of subtlety so seriously..The film took time to leave the runway, but once it’s mid air, all you can do is sit back and watch the drama unfold..And what a beautiful landing!!
Soubin Shahir – You are to Malayalam Cinema what Nawazuddin Siddique is to the rest of India.
Watch out for the performances of Savithri Sreedharan and Sarasa Balussery… Fell in love with the performance of these ladies.. And KTC Abdullah – Such perfect Casting.. Took time to Google their names…
Thank You C.V. Sarathi for calling me over.. Missed ur film the last two times.. ur track record of backing content based films is almost unheard of.. A big thanks.
