Probably it has been a long time since we saw a female oriented film in Malayalam. ‘Neelambari’ is a film that comes as a welcome change in a scenario as this, and has a story that revolves around two bosom friends – Parvathy and Lakshmi.
‘Neelambari’ is a treatise on music and romance, and holds a mirror to real life. Parvathy (Bhama) loses her mother at birth. Parvathy is brought up along with Lekshmi (Divya) by the latter’s mother. The two girls share the same thoughts, dresses and even dreams.
Parvathy and Lakshmi join the Music College, where Parvathy falls in love Devanand, her lecturer. However, Devanand’s grandfather has other plans in mind. He hopes to get his grandson married to Laskhmi. This drives the two girls apart, and Parvathy finds herself abandoned on the streets.
Hari Narayanan who had bagged the Best Debutante Director Award for his film ‘Nanthuni’ tells a heart warming story in ‘Neelambari’. In the words of the makers themselves, ‘Neelambari’ would be a class film that would appeal to the common viewer.
The film has a huge star cast that has such names as Vineeth, Anoop Menon, Bhama, Divya, Harisree Ashoka, Suraj Venjarammoodu, Kalasala Babu, P Sreekumar, Anoop Chandran and Ambika Mohan in it.
Produced by Premanandan under the banner of Sreelekshmi Creation,s the film has been shot on locations at Palakkad and Palani. The film is fast getting readied for a June release.
