Appan (father)

Itty, a degenerate old man, who had sprouted in the mire of the wild and brutal life at the frontiers of civilization, clinging to life though bed-ridden for years, going on with his uncouth pursuits even when paralyzed; his family and community that eagerly look forward to his imminent death.

Director Statement

I recently read a novel that tells the story of internal migration to the High Ranges of Kerala. That's when realized that there are a lot of extraordinary stories associated with this movement of the people to unknown frontiers and their struggles. Several films have this element as a plot but - had the thought
that nobody had told the story of family relationships that became distorted and disintegrating in that wild and brutal environment, where everyday is a struggle.
From a cursory inspection, it becomes evident that women are the primary victims of the arrogance and pride of the men there.
From a closer examination, it becomes clear that women are the primary victims of the arrogance and arrogance of the men there. The film tells the story of how the wildness of Itti's character, which fought against fierce forests and wild animals, affected his wife Kuttyamma, son Noonj and his family.

It is the story of fathers of two different generations, one living as the embodiment of evil and the other as the face of good.
Similarly, it's the story of mothers who belong to two generations, old generation who believing that she doesn't have any other choice to live, and decides to continue in the path of endurance, while a member of the new generation who believes in equality.
Also, the evil of tradition has also been attempted to be portrayed in this film.

This is an effort of mine, and I humbly wish to you to see it and, if you like it, request you to be included in the festival.

Thanking you,
