Sohanlal, the director of ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ and ‘Kathaveedu’, believes that cinema is a highway and it’s the destination that matters the most…
Sohan, who began from the small screen, directing short films and then other popular television shows, won much acclaim for the tele-cinema, ‘Neermaathalathinte Pookkal’, based on writings by Madhavikutty (Kamala Surayya). It was then that he made his foray into the big screen and made ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ and ‘Kadhaveedu’ as part of a trilogy which started off with ‘Neermaathalathinte Pookkal’. ‘Kathaveedu’ was released in 2013 and now, in 2015, Sohanlal once again seems all set for a new take off.
Excerpts from an interview with Sohanlal..!!
- It’s over a year since ‘Kadhaveedu’ came out. What’s happening at your end? Any new projects?
Well, last year I was caught up, immersed in the writing of my next movie. It took me exactly one year to finish it. I have started off with the casting and at present I am busy with that.
- Where do you place yourself in the current scenario in Malayalam Cinema?
I go my way, my own way. I believe I am not a part of any complexities or competitions and I don’t see filmmaking as a race that has to be run fast, so as to make it to the finishing line. In fact there is no finishing line to be reached. That precisely is the beauty of filmmaking and that’s what makes a film maker different from other professionals.
By the way, you very well know that my last three outings had a common thread connecting them- Nostalgia. Hence those works of fiction- ‘Neermaathalathinte Pookkal’ (Flowers of Neermaathalam), ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ (Remember Once awhile…) and ‘Kadhaveedu’ (House of Stories) connect together now as a trilogy- TRILOGY NOSTALGIA. The official launch of the international screenings of ‘Trilogy Nostalgia’ was done by veteran actor and MP Mr. Innocent at Kerala House, New Delhi in December last. The trilogy is being screened all over the world in association with different Malayali Associations.
- What, in your view, is the present state of affairs in Malayalam Cinema?
Let me be candid…I am neither excited nor worried about the current scenario…Cinema is like a highway. All kinds of vehicles ply along a highway. It’s irrelevant whether you use a BMW or an auto-rickshaw. Where you are travelling to is what matters.
- How would you assess your evolution over the years, starting with short films and then passing on to ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ and ‘Kadhaveedu’?
After ‘Kadhaveedu’, I have started seeing myself as a filmmaker who has completed one full circle, that of nostalgia, Now that’s over; it’s time to jump out or take a leap out of that circle.
- Any plans to do a thorough commercial movie?
All movies are commercial. My last two movies ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ and ‘Kadhaveedu’ made financial profits for my producers. They are happy and they are ready to invest in my future projects too.But more than making a movie that makes profits through satellite sales and other business offerings I am looking forward for a BIG audience for my next venture.
