And, there is no doubt that the closer cinema is to the concepts of the changed public mind after Corona, the more successful it will be.

Adah Sharma’s best performance
Adah Sharma is playing the lead role in the film ‘The Kerala Story’. First as Shalini and then as Fatima, she has in a way carried the film on both her shoulders. He has learned Malayalam from his mother who hails from Kerala. She also speaks Malayalam brilliantly on screen. This is the second Hindi film after ‘Dil Se’ to have a song in Malayalam and despite not understanding the language, the song manages to create a great impact thanks to Adah Sharma’s acting and Veeresh Sriwalsa’s melodious music. Vipul Amritlal Shah, the creative director and producer of the film, should be commended for not compromising with the actors while making a film on a difficult subject.

Best Supporting Actor Performance
Yogita Bihani and Siddhi Idnani also played the role of Shalini’s friends in the movie ‘The Kerala Story’ very effectively. In the role of a communist leader’s daughter, Siddhi lives the full spectrum of her character and her performance in scenes ranging from the girl in love to the girl who has lost her sense of self and doesn’t give up, her performance draws attention. is payable . Yogita Bihani’s character in the film is that of a smart girl but when she too is treacherously gang-raped, she takes it upon herself to expose the whole conspiracy. And, Yogeeta also portrays this character beautifully on screen with all its parts. Sonia Balani here plays the role of a girl whose responsibility it is to sort out the girls of a normal household and bring them into the lap of young men who humiliate them and force them to follow their path.

Balanced direction by Sudeepto Sen
There are many allegations against the film ‘The Kerala Story’. Will continue to apply in future as well. However, its director Sudeepto Sen has tried to make a balanced film based on facts. Some of the scenes in the film are quite gruesome and may unnerve the faint of heart, but they also seem necessary to convey the seriousness of the story. Sudeepto’s closeness to Vishwacinema helps him maintain a grip on his subject here. Those who know about Sudeepto’s cinema are convinced of his style. He does not allow melodrama to flourish in cinema. The dramatization of his scenes also has limitations and these limitations help the movie ‘The Kerala Story’ to earn the title of a good movie. The technical team is as simple as the film’s music.
A film based on true events, not on agenda
From Kerala to Syria and Afghanistan, the film’s shadow director (cinematographer) Prashantanu Mahapatra has meticulously filmed his camera to bring the places very close to their reality on screen. The hard work of costume designer Radhika Mehra is well reflected in the costumes of the characters in the film and Angana Sen and Chetan Acharya along with their production design team have worked hard to create the atmosphere of the film. The crux of the film is the combination of its background music and its action sequences. If the make-up of the film’s cast was also a little better and the light combination of the scenes, the impact would have been more profound. If the film ‘The Kerala Story’ is viewed objectively, it does not appear to be a propaganda film at all.
