Malayalam film industry has been exceptionally influencing people nowadays.
In this Pandemic situation, movies are getting released in Amazon Prime like online platforms.
Let’s talk about the recently released movie.
HALAL LOVE STORY ( HALAL= Lawful as per Quran).
HALAL LOVE STORY, Director Zakariya’s second movie after the huge success of SUDANI FROM NIGERIA. Here, the filmmaker is trying to mirror almost the same essence as in his first movie but in an entirely different way.
The movie delves into a group of people and their struggles and triumphs in making a telefilm.
Muhsin Parari inked Halal just like the continuation of his movie K 10.
Both Sudani from Nigeria & KL 10 was on the football but, here they chose film itself as the medium but, with almost the same essence.
The story set to be happening in a small village near Kozhikode.
Despite being from very modest living conditions, the natives in the film have their own transparent opinions and attitudes. Whether it is the imperialist occupation of the Middle East or the natural exploitation of Coca-Cola, they have a reaction and also a stand. That is the speciality of the countryside of Malabar. This film also deals with the essence of Central Malabar astutely.
‘ Give us a movie which does not show stunts while showcasing men & songs while showcasing women.’ From this dialogue, we could understand the clear standards of the natives.
Every dialogue in Halal underlines the ideas it intends to convey. That is the best part of the way we view characters with curiosity.
The movie, which follows a film within a film is a satirical comedy one. But which focuses on Islamic culture and which embraces the traditions.
The story is happening around the time when Muslims all around the world are facing discrimination. So The art club of that village decided to create awareness through making a telefilm. That paved the way to plenty of misconceptions and confusions between them the filming was like You don’t want to betray both your Passion and Belief.
When you look at Halal LOVE STORY, the first thing that catches your heart is the beautiful and heartfelt songs and background music. The music composed by Shahbaz Aman, Bijibal & Neha.S brings the audience closer to the film. Ajay Menon’s magic through camera had done wonders in the movie.
When Indrajith Sukumaran, Sharafudheen & Joju George made an extraordinary performance, Grace Antony and other non-leading roles had shocked the audience with their exceptional talent. Although Parvathy Thiruvoth & Soubin Sahir had done a guest role, the prominent energy of the movie flows from them.
Halal Love Story is a good movie. It is all about Love, Innocence and Goodness. Despite that, the HALAL LOVE STORY is a clear-cut view of the innocent village people with strong politics and protest.
The marvellous direction, characterization, and well-written scripts with the essence of humour would give us an amazing experience.
