Navodaya plans comeback with new film

Our Bureau

KOCHI, June 21

NAVODAYA, a leading film banner in the State which has been inactive for quite some time now, is now planning a comeback with the distribution of a new Malayalam film.

Navodaya, who made several super hits and produced the first 3-D film in India, My Dear Kuttichathan, in the 80's, has obtained the rights for the distribution of Sesham, which was screened at the International Film Festival of Kerala at Thiruvananthapuram recently. The film will be released all over Kerala on July 26.

Mr Appachan, owner of the company, said that the decision to keep away from the industry for some time was taken due to several business engagements of the company in other fields. Navodaya is the promoter of Kishkinta Amusement Park in Chennai.

Regarding the ongoing controversy in Malayalam cinema, he said that film-making was not an individual effort but a joint venture by all those involved in it, including the artistes, producers, directors, distributors and theatre owners.

Mr Appachan also said that his new 3-D film project, currently in the final stages of production, was an example for the total co-operation extended by the artistes - numbering about 200 - connected with this film.
