Hey Jude successfully enters the second week of theatrical run!!
Nivin Pauly has kick-started 2018 on a positive note as his first outing of the year Hey Jude is getting excellent response from the audience. Releasing last Friday, the movie opened to highly positive reviews from the critics. Soon the word of mouth spread and common audience also lapped up the movie.
Hey Jude has now entered its second successful week of theatrical run in a good number of theatres in Kerala. It is also being screened in ROI centres like Chennai, Pune and Mumbai. The movie has earned a clean feel good entertainer tag from the audience.
Hey Jude is directed by ace filmmaker Shyamaprasad, and scripted by newcomers Nirmal Sahadev and George Kanatt. It is basically a coming-of-age story of Jude, an oddball. How love and understanding transforms Jude after befriending with his neighbor Crystal and her father Sebastian, a neuropsychologist, forms the crux of the story. It is a beautiful musical story of love, healing and self discovery.
Nivin Pauly as the differently abled Jude has given his career best performance. Though the movie has only a handful of characters, all of them namely Siddique, Trisha, Vijay Menon and Neena Kurup have given a performance worth remembering for a long time.
Since music is a major element in the movie, four different composers – Ouseppachan, Gopi Sunder, Rahul Raj and M Jayachandran – have tuned the songs. Girish Gangadharan, noted for his works in films like Guppy and Angamaly Diaries, is the cinematographer.
Hey Jude is being produced by Anil Kumar under the banner of Ambalakkara Global Films.
