The trailer of the upcoming Malayalam film Sufiyum Sujatayum (2020), which will have its world premiere on Amazon Prime on 3 July, was unveiled on Wednesday, 24 June. The visuals promise an innocent love story.
Directed by Naranipuzha Shanavas, the film is the first mainstream Malayalam film to have a direct OTT release.
Going by the trailer, Aditi Rao Hydari plays a mute character. The story explores the relationship between her and a Sufi singer. There is also a sub-plot featuring Hydari and her abusive husband, played by Jayasurya.
According to Vijay Babu, who has produced the film under the Friday Film House banner, “The theme of the movie is one that hasn’t been explored very often. The story is nuanced and complex, yet underlines one simple, universal truth – that love knows no rationality or bounds.”
The film marks Hydari's return to Malayalam cinema after 13 years. She had previously acted in the 2006 Malayalam film, Prajapathi.
In a statement, the actress said, "Sufiyum Sujatayum is a special film for me. I been lucky to work with some incredible people across India and this film marks my debut as the leading lady of a Malayalam film. The film is an innocent love story, where love is unburdened by prejudices and discrimination. The movie is a drama and narrated with a lot of sensitivity and honesty."
“I had a great time working on the movie; it was challenging to work with some very brilliant colleagues and crew members. I'm really looking forward to the audience's response. I hope they get immersed in the world of Sufi and Sujata like I did and I hope everyone makes their own special connection to the characters and the story,” Hydari added.
The film has been shot by cinematographer Anu Moothedath and edited by Deepu Joseph. The music has been composed by M Jayachandran with the lyrics by Hari Narayan. The songs in the film have been sung by Sudeep Palanad.
