Multiple State Award winner director Aneesh Anwar’s upcoming film Basheerinte Premalekhanam, is a love story in the vintage mode. A romantic comedy, it’s set in the eighties and tells the love story of a youngster named Basheer.
While many had thought that story has a Vaikkom Muhammad Basheer connection, the director had clarified that it’s an independent story and the film is not based on the renowned writer’s popular work. Now we hear that the movie will be in theaters soon. On July 1 evening, it’s trailer will be released and probably, it will have enough hints for the fans to see what’s new in this Aneesh Anwar film.
The movie, as evident in the trailer, revolves around a TV set arriving at a home in a small hamlet. In the late 1980s, a TV set was a prized possession. So, the whole hamlet converges at the house to enjoy the show. But, the people have no idea about what a TV or antenna is. So, they invite Basheer, a young lad, to install the set. What happens then forms the crux of the story. It is essentially a love story, with music as its backdrop. Though the story takes place in a Muslim household, all the people in the village are part of the plot.
Though the movie has a romantic thread with Farhan Faasil and Sana Althaf in the lead, an equally important aspect of the film is a parallel love track featuring yester-year hit couple Madhu and Sheela. The story requires a senior pair with an appeal. The roles were very performance-oriented and when the script was taken to the duo, they readily agreed. Thus, the audience will get to see the wonderful pairing come alive on screen again.
