P F Mathews is back

Posted by Admin On June - 26 - 2008

The regulars before television sets in Kerala will hardly forget P F Mathews, who has elevated the standards of television serials with his poignant scripts and story lines. Starting from ‘Shara Ranthal’ which came in the early nineties, P F Mathews was a regular in mini screen awards for his works like Mikhayelinte Santhathikal, roses in December, Charulatha and  Megham to name a few. P F Mathews debuted to big screen writing for ‘Puthran’-the debut feature of Biju Menon. The film didn’t do well with the audience and Mathews returned to his short stories and novels.

Now, after a gap of more than a decade, P F is back to filmdom, writing the scripts for the renowned filmmaker Shaji N Karun’s ‘Kutty Shranku’. P F considers the writing for this movie as a great experience, where he was given plenteous independence to add dimensions to the characters based on the one line from the director.

The story, according to the scriptwriter is another attempt on magical realism, ”At first, Shaji sir just give me abstract ideas about the outlines and I sat to write. When I attempted surrealistic styles to decipher the story, Shaji sir just told me that it was not that he meant from me. Thereafter we sat for long, discussing the plot points. I think I had rewrote and edited at least five times before reaching the final scripts”, says P F Mathews.

The film will present Mammootty as the title character who is known in different names   in different areas. The movie has three heroines in Kamalinee Mukherjee, Padmapriya and Sreelankan actress Meenakumari. Also in the cast are Kozhikkodu Sharadha, Suresh Krissna, Siddhique, Krishnan, Rajiv Kalamasserry and Rajesh Sharma.
