Malayalam Superstar Prithviraj: “We Are Badly Missing A Happy Film”

Legendary Malayalam star Prithviraj Sukumaran acknowledges the industry has been missing “happy films”, and the reason is the contained environment under which everyone has been living over the last one and a half year. “I think the primary reason for that is all the filmmakers, actors and producers, all of us, were forced to start thinking about contained films. Films that could pull off under these circumstances,” shares the actor, as he opens up in a conversation with IANS.

More often than not, when you start thinking on these lines, the genre that you start deviating towards is either a thriller, a dark satire happening in real space, like ‘Joji’. As is the usual practice when you start thinking about happy films (films that have a lot of actors, laughter, joy, comedy and music) you start thinking that this is big and the film has many locations, people, and places. So, you don’t usually think on those lines, when you think what kind of a film you can pull off under the given circumstances (of the pandemic and lockdown),” Prithviraj Sukumaran says.

Prithviraj Sukumaran made his directorial debut in 2019 with the film “Lucifer”, and is now all set to wield the megaphone again in the recently announced “Bro Daddy”. If things would have been as we wished, then it would have been shot this year, but due to obvious reasons we couldn’t start. To me, it seems we are badly missing a happy film in Malayalam cinema over the past one and half year. All of the content we see in Kerala is dark. It’s either a murder mystery or a dark satire or an investigative thriller,”  He says.
