I've never seen this film, but judging by your accounting of it, I should a) remedy that and b) understand it may have been about a year ahead of it's time. Thank you so much for adding this unique contribution to our event, and please do so again! Follow my blog-a-thon page to see the events I'm either hosting or participating!


I have to admit, I hesitated, because I wasn't sure I could watch the film in the midst of Covid-19 -- but I was reminded at how skilfully it avoided making viewers fearful, and how it emphasized scientific knowledge and experts. And it was great, too, that it was on a big streaming platform with subtitles so I could confidently share it and know others could watch it, too, if they were intrigued by my contribution. I hope you do see it -- I've been a fan of Malayalam cinema for a long time, and want to show people that there are legitimately world-class films coming out of India.


This definitely will be worth a look, thanks for promoting it. It’s always good to have a plan. Cheers to this part of the world who were prepared, it is an inspiration!


Thanks for stopping by, Chris. Yes, and I find it interesting that the two places in the world whose cinema/dramas I follow, Kerala and South Korea, both had excellent responses to Covid-19, in part because both of them have had recent experiences with virus outbreaks (Nipah for the former, MERS for the latter).

Silver Screenings

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this film, and for outlining Kerala's response to the virus. A truly interesting read.


Thanks for taking a moment to come by and read and comment -- I appreciate it!
