Amazon Prime Video today unveiled the trailer for Malayalam film, Sufiyum Sujatayum, which makes its global premiere exclusively on the service and is the fourth such film in recent times to do so.
Directed by Naranipuzha Shanavas, Sufiyum Sujatayum is produced by Vijay Babu under his banner of Friday Film House. The film will premiere on the OTT platform on 3 July for global audiences.
“Our endeavor is to create something which leaves behind a lasting impact and Sufiyum Sujatayum is a film made exactly on those lines. 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. There would not have been a more perfect choice than Aditi Rao Hydari and Jayasurya for the respective roles as both are known to do justice to the character that they portray,” says Producer Vijay Babu.
“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,” said Aditi Rao Hydari. “The film is an innocent love story, where love is unburdened by prejudices and discrimination. It’s 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,” the lead actress of the film Aditi Rao Hydari says.
“The Malayalam film industry is known for rolling out good stories,” says Jayasurya, “Sufiyum Sujatayum too keeps up with the tradition and depicts a story of a beautiful girl with an incomplete love-story. I play the role of the husband to Aditi’s character. An interesting and nuanced role of a husband that knows of his wife’s love for another man, and tries to find ways to keep his family together. The rest is to be watched and enjoyed,” he adds.
The film is shot by cinematographer Anu Moothedath and edited by Deepu Joseph. The music in the film is composed by M Jayachandran with lyrics penned by Hari Narayan and songs sung by Sudeep Palanad. The film is brought together by executive producer Vinay Babu.
