44th IFFI in Goa;‘Kanyaka Talkies’ opens Indian Panorama Feature Section

Kanyaka Talkies
A Malayalam movie, ‘Kanyaka Talkies’, will open the feature film category of the Indian Panorama at the 44th International Film Festival of India. 

It is a debut feature film by K.R. Manoj, a national award-winning documentary film-maker.

The film unfolds the plight of a theatre-owner who puts his heart and soul into running the theatre despite heavy odds. 

The subject has been treated with such an empathy that a B-grade talkies of the 80s and 90s itself becomes a character. 

Starring Murali Gopy, Lena and Maniyan Pilla Raju, ‘Kanyaka Talkies’ was also selected for the competition section at the 15th edition of the Mumbai International Film Festival and in the ‘Malayalam Cinema Today’ section of the International Film Festival of Kerala.
