Sufi Paranja Katha at Trivandrum Sree

Sufi Paranja Katha (What the Sufi said) coming to theaters in Kerala on Feb 19. The film is being released by Central pictures, the reputed distribution house of Malayalam film industry.

This highly anticipated period film is based on KP Ramanunni's popular and award winning novel which is narrated in 8 different languages including English and French. The film talks about the 19th century British Malabar, Kerala's unique culture of shared space between Hindu and Muslim communities, human gods etc.

Sufi Paranja Katha is directed by National award winner Priyanandanan. Sufi is considered to be Priyan's first mainstream feature film with breezy treatment, impressive songs and a strong plot and powerful dialogues. Screenplay is written by the novelist KP Ramanunni, one of most respected literary figures of Kerala today.

Sufi was one of the three Indian films selected into the International competition section of IFFK (International Film Festival of Kerala) 2009. Sufi's premier in IFFK was marked by the biggest crowd witnessed by this edition of the festival and overwhelming reviews and feedback from the audience and media.

Sufi songs which are being telecasted in all major Malayalam channels are rated as the top numbers of this year. Mohan Sitara sets impressive music to the great lyrics written by Rafeeq Ahammed.

The plot of the film revolves around the love and marriage of Karthi, the Hindu heiress of a wealthy Nair Tharavaadu, with Maamootty, a wandering Muslim trader in coconuts and spices. On another plane, the film is about the transformation of Karthi to a Biwi, a local Goddess worshipped by the Hindus and the Muslims alike. Karthi is that perfect, confident woman, who is sufficient unto herself. So magnetic is her personality, that even her own mother venerates her, leading to her alienation and loneliness. The aura around Karthi's celestial persona is powerful enough to reduce the men in her life to impotence.
Bengali actress Sharbani Mukherji enacts Karthi/Suhara, one of the strongest woman charactes of Malayalam literature. International award winner Thampi Antony, New comer Prakash Bare, Veteran actor Jagathy Sreekumar, Babu Antony, Indrans, Irshad, Valsala Menon, Gita Vijayan, Samvrutha Sunil and Sunita Nedungadi play the key roles in Sufi. Sufi is the first of three feature films Silicon Media is bringing out in 2010, based on themes of global relevance and directed by talented film makers.
