The ‘katta local’ trailer of Angamaly Diaries has been a huge hit on the internet. The film with all fresh faces, promises a rustic setting and some fresh tales. The Kochi Post spoke with Lijo Jose Pellisserry and the cast of the film that releases today.
“The movie is mainly about the place, its food humour, crime…almost like giving character and face to Angamaly,” says Lijo Jose Pellisserry. “It isn’t a story that was put together in a say. It is a deliberated screenplay with a lot of thought gone into it. Me and Vinod (Chemban Vinod Jose) have discussed the story at length. And the nature of the script demanded fresh faces,” he says. Entirely about about life in Angamaly, the parts of the movie have been shot in Irinjalakuda and Chalakudy.
“You could say that the movie moves through different emotions and different time periods in the lives of five characters. It follows them from the ages 12 till they are 28-30,” Lijo says. Meet all the characters from the movie.
