Thrissur: Film maker Siby Malayil thinks his much acclaimed movie Kireedam wouldn’t have happened had he conceived the film with the practicality often exhibited by the new generation of movie goers.
Meanwhile, Fr. Davis Chirammel, the chairman of the Kidney Foundation warned that one may not be able to act his/her part if he / she waits until the last scene. The duo had entertained the audience with some amazing snippets at the Chackola – Oppan, Rosy memorial award distribution ceremony.
Siby Malayil, who inaugurated the event, said that a student, at a recently held debate, had told him that the son whose name was in the SI rank list should have been reasonable enough to not intervene while his father was being thrashed. The student had apparently told the film maker that the son could have easily taken revenge after becoming appointed as the SI or he could even have given a quotation. Siby said that the new generation does not believe in approaching matters emotionally. They perceive and evaluate matters and events with reason and practicality.
Fr. Davis Chirammel, who presided over the meeting, said that people wait to act their part, in the drama called life, until the last scene. He added that they, in the meanwhile, are interested only in earning wealth. However, they would realize that the curtain has already fallen on them only when they get ready to play their part, said Fr. Davis.
Talented artists from the cinema – theater fields were honored with awards at the event.
