Panaji, Nov 22: Veteran Malayalam film director Shaji N Karun has said that cinema possesses a universal language and the message conveyed by the Malayalam movie ‘Olu’ can reach the audience, irrespective of language barriers.
Addressing a press conference on his film at the Media Centre of International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here on Wednesday, he said an original work of cinema has to remain like a painting and its dubbing into other languages would spoil its beauty.
The director said ‘Olu’ depicts the tale of a gypsy girl Maya who mysteriously survives under the Kerala backwaters where she has been sunk by her rapists.
Later, fate brings her close to Vasu, a young and amateur painter. Out of love, she empowers him to create paintings that will change his life. (UNI)
