it’s post production time..

In 2010 sept, when I was reading a short story written by M.J.Akbar, the second page of the short story hooked me on a thought which started following me eversince then. I wanted to do a love story for my second film and the characters Vinod and Aisha caught their places in my mind. When I went to Prague[I think in nov 2010], I carried them along with me. Before even finishing the scene order of the screenplay, I wrote the first scene there. It is scene no: 19 of my final draft where Vinod is proposing to Aisha. When I wrote it, i felt his state of mind,i felt his breath, i visualized aisha trembling with fear. 16 months later, I actually saw whatever I felt back then. Nivin was Vinod, Isha was Aisha and I was making the film I had carried for a long time – “Thattathin Marayathu”.

Mind blowing trip is what I had when I was making this film. I had a cinematographer who stood by me like my right hand, Jomon T John, who gave me his infinite support to do everything possible to spread romance in every frame. I had the best crew ever working with me. We had our back ground scores ready before shooting certain pivotal scenes. We shot a handful of songs without a dance master, we shot struggles and fights without a stunt director. We shot through the length and breadth of thalassery trying to capture the essence of this beautiful small town. We all really had a blast.

I wouldn’t want to say too much this time. It’s post production now and I still have not seen what I ve shot. I don’t know if I ve shot it well or not. I don’t know if my instincts would be right or wrong. But one thing is for sure. A lot of heart has been put into this film. If it shows onscreen, we all will have a great time. I am hoping and praying for that.

    Hi Vineeth,

    Glad to see you back here. Sounds like you had a blast, shooting the film. Send some songs which you have sung, long time since I heard a new song from you.

    Good luck with Thattathin Marayathu, I am sure you are more realxed than Malarvadi time.

    Belated Vishu greetings!
    Take care

    vineet…….. the director in U with a debut with Malarvadi Arts Club had made something different in the malayalam film industry with all new guys and their friendship which made everybody think “i wish i had some friends like this” and now, i strongly belive thattathin Marayathu will be a movie when it comes out onscreen to be the best love story a person would always love to see again and again from u in a different perspective.

    wishing all of u the very best and eagerly waiting for the release of the songs and the movie.

    it will be a big hit ………..

    Looks like guy propose to girl and some struggles and at the end either they marry each other or girl marries to another guy. By seeing malarwadi , i expect a predictable movie from vineeth. but again scenes would be picturized well and with good bgm.

    I used to be part of the stage during my school days and I was told that I was good at it. But then on I have never got an opportunity. I’d love to get back to my acting and its a dream for me to do just one movie atleast in my life. Am sure that you being a great actor, director, story teller like your father, and a good singer and song writer too, you’ll always remain dear to all. God Bless you. If at all you read this Vinneth, and if you think that there could be an opportunity, please do get in touch with me. Well, I genuinely love acting and the theaters.

    “പ്രണയം , അതിനു നിന്റെ നിറമാണ്
    മഞ്ഞു പുതപ്പിട്ട ഈ രാവിലും നിന്റെ കണ്ണുകളുടെ തിളക്കം എനിക് ചൂട് നല്കി
    പറയാതെ വന്ന പ്രണയമാണ് നീ അറിയാതെ പോകരുതെന്‍ മനസ്സ്
    സൂര്യന്‍ പൊട്ടി ത്തകരും വരെ ഓര്‍ത്ത് കൊള്ളാം
    അസ്ഥികള്‍ ദ്രവിക്കും വരെ സ്നേഹിച്ച് കൊള്ളാം ”

    പ്ലസ് ടൂ വിന് പടികുന്ന കാലത്ത് ഒരു എന്‍‌എസ്‌എസ് കാമ്പിലെ പ്രണയ്തീന്‍റെ ഗന്ധമുണ്ടതിന്
    ആ കിളി പറന്നു പോയി , അതിഞ്ഞു ശേഷം എന്റെ മനസ്സിലെ പ്രണയ കൂട്ടില്‍ ആരും വന്നിട്ടില്ല , ക്ഷണിച്ചിട്ടുമില്ല , വര്ഷം ഏഴു കഴിഞ്ഞു പക്ഷേ രണ്ട് നാള്‍ മുന്പ് വിനീതിന്റെ പുതിയ ചിത്രത്തിന്റെ ഒരു ട്രെയിലര്‍ കണ്ടപ്പോള്‍ , കണ്ണുകളില്‍ എവിടെയോ ഒരു നനവ് ,
    നന്ദി , എന്തിനെന്നറിയില്ല , പക്ഷേ പറയണമെന്ന് തോന്നി

    “ഒരിറ്റു കണ്ണീര്‍ എന്റെ ഓര്‍മകളില്‍ വീണുടഞ്ഞപ്പോള്‍ അതില്‍ നിന്നുയര്‍ന്ന ചാരത്തിഞ്ഞു വിരഹത്തിന്റെ ഗന്ധമായിരുന്നു “

    First of all thanx to coming up with a wonderful love story. Longing to see something like this in malayalam. Thattatin marayathu,i felt it like a dream. Hats off to the cinematographer and the background score. Also watta dialogues.. had a laugh riot. Am apprehensive about the movie at first. From the promos i felt it to be a cliched love story. Wel the dialogues changed my mind n thought to give it a shot. i appreciate the efforts taken that it differed from the usual filmy love stories. So thumbs up to the director too 😉 :). The male lead nivin n supporting one his frnd stood out. Overall a very gud, sweet movie. Keep up the gud work n hoping to c more from u.
