Movies starring superstars and young stars always find a spot among the most-anticipated films, even if it is a flop project. But if a film is being made on a low budget without any star cast, they often fail to make a mark in the industry. Now, directors Lal Jose and Aashiq Abu have come forward to support two such movies by taking over their distribution rights in Kerala.
Lal Jose's production company LJ Films Pvt Ltd has decided to release multi-lingual thriller "Lens" in 25 selected theatres in Kerala on June 17. The suspense entertainer, written, directed and produced by Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan, has newcomers in the lead roles. The "Vikramadithyan" has announced the news via his Facebook page, asking the audience to support the movie, despite being a low-budget film. Lal, who was touched by the movie's plot, calls it an engaging film from beginning to end.
"LJ Films is planning to release the movie titled "Lens" on June 17. The movie is wrotten and directed by Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan. The film has newcomers among its cast and crew. I watched this movie and the movie's theme, which is very relevant these days, has touched me. Since the movie doesn't have any star cast, it should not be neglected. The movie will keep you engaged from beginning till end as it has a suspense element. The film will be initially screened in 25 screens on June 17 and will be released in more screens upon receiving good response from the audience. I request each one of you to watch 'Lens.' [translated]," Lal posted on his Facebook page.
Filmmaker Aashiq will also distribute Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's low-budget "Ozhivudivasthe Kali" (An Off-Day Game) on June 17. The movie, based on Unni R's novel with the same name, won the Kerala State Award in the Best Film category. The film has Abhija Sivakala and Sreedhar in the lead roles.
Meanwhile, the one-minute-38-second trailer of the upcoming movie "Lens" was released at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 4.
