Critically acclaimed Malayalam movie Kaadu Pookkunna Neram, written and directed by Dr Biju, has found a place in the list of films competing for the British Academy Film and Television Award nominations in different categories.
The movie, which revolves around the conflict between authority and activists who fight for the rights of marginalised people, was already selected to seven international movie festivals, including the upcoming International Film Festival of Kerala.
Director Kunal Kohli slammed the recent promotional activities done by stars to promote their films, saying, “Rarely does one see promotion that compliments (sic) a film. All are the same with different actors selling different films, doing the same rubbish. Then we wonder films don’t open? Seriously? Since when do mall visits get you an opening? Or for that matter doing rubbish on TV shows.” He says the actors, while engaged in film-promotion, should just talk about the movie to sell it.
“Not what your co-star thinks of you or guesses what your habits are. Who cares about that? Really wondering since when promotions became such a waste of money and that too in the wrong places. Spend wisely,” he added.
