Five ‘new generation’ directors are teaming up to make Anchu Sundarikal, an anthology of five romantic tales.
The film comes after the ten-film anthology called Kerala Cafe, which came some time back.
The five directors are Amal Neerad, Aashiq Abu, Anwar Rasheed, Sameer Thahir and Shyju Khaled. The film is being produced by Amal Neerad Productions, after the recent film Bachelor Party, which was a straightforward copy of the Hong Kong film, Exiled directed by Johnnie To.
Aashiq, meanwhile, has started his latest film Da Thadiya. Anwar directed this year’s hit film Ustad Hotel. Sameer Thahir has directed Chappa Kurishu, which was allegedly inspired from the Korean movie, Hand phone. Shyju Khaled is the cinematographer of Traffic, Salt N’ Pepper and 22 Female Kottayam.
