Malgudi Days, from the day of its announcement it had given a unique feel to our audience. At first it’s the title itself. Because we all are fond of RK Narayan’s literary piece named Malgudi Days and later we loved it when it came on mini screen as well. Even though this Malayalam film had nothing to do with that story of RK Narayan, the title gives a sweet nostalgic feel to everyone who heard it.
Then the thing which gave a unique feel to the movie Malugudi days is that it is directing by a trio of Visakh, Vivek and Vinod. They had scripted the film as well. We heard lot of director duos but may it is the first time that we are hearing a director trio. Yes, of course we heard a film directed by many directoirs as unit wise direction as in Manichithra Thazhu. But it’s headed by Fazil and it’s his film. But this time the credit is for all three of them and it will be coming in the name of these three.
