FRIDAY RUSHES



Emotional reunion

The launch of the remake of `Rathinirvedam' was an emotional reunion of sorts. KPAC Lalitha who had acted in the original film told the packed audience that the film proved to be a turning point in her life. Bharathan had proposed to her after the shooting of the film and Cupid was enacted by cinematographer Ramachandra Babu. The Bharathan film, scripted by Padmarajan and produced by Hari Pothen, is a coming-of-age movie; a landmark film in Malayalam cinema. The families of the producer, the scriptwriter and director of the film were in there in full strength to motivate Suresh Kumar and T.K. Rajeevkumar, producer and director respectively of the new `Rathinirvedam.'



Clicking with Bollywood

Amal Neerad is all set to widen his horizons. The hotshot cinematographer who hit the big time in Mumbai is all set to return to Bollywood as a director as UTV has requested him to direct a film for the production house.



Platform for good films

The shooting of film director R. Sarath's `Platform Number 2' will begin in January. "The script is in the final stage. We plan to shoot the film in Hindi and Malayalam. Producer Jayaprada and Kay Kay Menon have been cast in the Hindi film. We also plan to introduce several youngsters in the film," says the director. The casting for the Malayalam version is still on. His previous film, `Desire,' is likely to be premiered in Mumbai.



Memorable debut

M.T. Annoor and Jithu Joseph are the two debutant filmmakers who struck gold with their very first film. The Indian Panorama section of the ongoing International Film Festival of India has included Anoor's `Kalchilambu' and Jithu's `Mummy and Me.' "It is a great recognition for me and it proves that there is a place for films that do not always hit the commercial circuit," says Anoor who is working on his next film with childhood buddy M. Sukumar.
