Shane Nigam’s Olu set to hit screens this Friday; Watch the teaser here
After doing its rounds at the film festivals, Shane Nigam starrer ‘Olu’ is finally set to have its theatrical release on this Friday (September 20). Directed by theegendary Shaji N Karun, this fantasy film has Shane and Esther Anil in the lead roles. Olu, which means she, is the tale of a Gypsy girl who mysteriously survives under the backwaters where she has been sunk by her rapists.
Only during full moon nights, can she see the world above the water. It is on such a night that she happens to ‘meet’ Vasu, a young untalented painter, rowing his boat. Out of love, she empowers him to create paintings that will change his life. But their contrasting inner visions of love may remain unbridgeable.
It is a fascinating story that has several layers like most of Shaji N Karun’s earlier acclaimed films. TD Ramakrishnan has scripted the film. The cast also includes Indrans, Kani Kasthuri and Maya Menon. Late cinematographer MJ Radhakrishnan has shot the film. His outstanding work in the film had won him a National award this year.
