Mammootty is here Related News Malayalam superstar Mammootty is gifted with an unparalleled versatility in pulling off a range of emotions – from comedic mischievous heartfelt to action without breaking a sweat The choice of his films last year may not have reflected that talent but the trailer of his upcoming film Puthan Panam is here to remind us what an amazing actor he really is Director Ranjith’s Puthan Panam is based on the concept of demonetisation of currency The trailer captures the chaos and the hopelessness of the working class people following the government’s ‘surgical attack’ on the black money hoarders Well the sufferings of the common man due to the demonetisation can be seen in the trailer the film mainly deals with the helplessness of rich people with loads and loads of useless high-denomination currency Mammootty plays a Nityananda Shenoy middle-aged businessman and native of Kasaragod district in the film The two-time National Award-winning director Ranjith has tried to highlight the slang and intimidating mannerisms of the people of Kasaragod and it clearly works in the favour of the movie While it is really difficult to decide whether Mammootty plays a good man or a bad man just going by the trailer we can be sure that his character indeed has shades of grey The Mammootty-starrer is said to be a different take on the director’s 2011 National Award winning film Indian Rupee which had Prithviraj in the lead role The star cast includes Ineya Sheelu Abraham Siddique Sai Kumar Renji Panicker Harish Kanaran and Mamukoya among others The film is produced by 3 Color Cinemas a production house co-owned by Abraham Mathew along with director Ranjith and actor Arun Narayanan The film is expected to hit the screens during Vishu For all the latest

(Express photo by Tashi Tobgyal) Top News While male friendship got its celluloid outing with films such asDil Chahta Hai andZindagi Na Milegi Dobara female bonding has remained largely off screen But Aparna Sen’s Sonata which releases on April 21 is about to change that The film starring Shabana Azmi Lillete Dubey and Sen is the story of three successful single women in their 50s their friendship and their lives On a recent visit to Delhi the three sat with us at Delhi’s Olive Bar and Kitchen and spoke about the play that inspired the film patriarchy in film industry and the change that’s setting in Excerpts: Sonata is inspired by the eponymous one-act play by Mahesh Elkunchwar Tell us more about it Sen: I had seen this play and what struck me was not just the portrayal of female bonding but how it treated women who have passed a certain age What drew me to it was its exploration of the feminine Here we have these three successful women who are defined by their work who have had romantic relationships but have never been married and don’t have children One is a successful banker (Azmi) the other is a journalist (Dubey) and I play a Sanskrit professor Apart from having Aparna Sen as director what drew the two of you (Azmi and Dubey) to the film Azmi:I have a standing deal with Aparna that I have to be part of every film that she does Even if I am just a tree in it I am more than happy Jokes apart Aparna is the only director I know who consciously brings to life characters that are otherwise sidelined from the mainstream narrative They might have a mental or physical problem but then she will give them a beautiful voice so they are not reduced to be defined by their disability Aparna has expanded my vision and worldview as an actor and a human being And here I am playing a banker who is single childless drinks wine and hums Rabindra sangeet For me Sonata was also cementing the idea of how the concept of family has evolved It’s no longer defined with blood relations alone The film is redefining the idea of a traditional family Dubey: I had been waiting for Aparna to call me ever since I started doing films — it took just 15-16 years As for Sonata the kind of female bonding this film showcases has never been done before And though the play is written by a man it’s not a male gaze This film presents an alternate history of sorts what would have happened if you had taken the road less travelled All of you come from very strong theatre backgrounds Did that help in the making of this film Sen:We have shot the film like a play in one location with three characters We had extensive script readings I also got Sohag Sen on board as an acting coach I had seen him in Sonata the play We shot it sequence by sequence not like other films where you do one bit here and the other somewhere else I was working on a very tight budget so this helped in managing the costs Even after receiving both critical acclaim and commercial success you still face budget issues Sen:This is a cross I have to bear Time and again Shabana says and now Lillete has also joined the conversation that I should get bigger budgets Do I wish I had bigger budgets Yes of course I deserve big budgets But I don’t crib about it anymore I have made my peace with it Dubey:It’s also the responsibility of the audience to see such films If a film likeSonata does well imagine the way it will embolden other filmmakers In our films we rarely see a lead cast of women who are in their 50s Do you think Sonata will help break certain stereotypes about ageism in Hindi films Sen:I am not an ageist I don’t believe in it But we all have lived it and we have acted it Azmi: Norms are changing and what we are undergoing as a society some of it translates onto the screen There were times when a heroine hit 30 and her life and career were over because all she had been doing those days was wearing yellow chiffon saris and dancing Now even though it’s still a long way from where it needs to be we can see a trickle of change The boundaries have been pushed We get an English Vinglish But even men suffer from the ageist syndrome We need to give credit to Amitabh Bachchan — he has really stretched and increased the shelf-life of actors Dubey: Female actors came with baggage — they were superstars and they didn’t want to do peripheral roles We can’t deny that this is a male-dominated industry A male star carries the film and the character roles are also written keeping that in mind It’s not like it is with Susan Sarandon Meryl Streep and their ilk Television ideally should have been the space that older actors could have appropriated but sadly that didn’t happen But things are changing with webseries etc One sees a lot laughter wine and soulful music in the trailer of the film We imagine it was the same on the sets Sen: Three minutes into a reading session and they would be chattering Shabana — she can be quite a liability but I can handle her now All would be fine and 30 seconds before the shot she will say ‘Rina these lines can we do them differently’ And I would be like but you were okay with them in the readings and rehearsals But mind you she has lied to me to be in my films For 15 Park Avenue she said she could drive and she couldn’t Azmi: I could drive but not along the curve like they wanted me to For this film she made me diet I was eating soups and salads and everyone would be eating around me Lilette would be gorging on this amazing fish and in the evening the muri would appear Imagine a director who was so obsessed with getting her muri right Dubey: We were either eating or laughing But the wine – it was all fake Except once when we had the real deal For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App
