Parvathy & Asif Ali play the lead roles in Uyare that marks the debut of first time filmmaker, Manu Asokan into Mollywood. Tovino Thomas too plays a pivotal role in the film which is on an acid attack survivor. ‘Cinema has always been my calling card & I have been waiting on my wings to fly about, as a filmmaker!’ says Manu.
Parvathy was the choice for the role of Pallavi & she spared no effort to give her best! She met survivors of acid attacks to understand their plight, state of mind & their mode of preparation while entering into the recovery mode. It took 3 hours for the makeup, we hear!
The team very clear of the objective that the focus was on focussing on the protagonist’s grit & determination; and not on churning out a tear-jerker!
It is the person beneath the external beauty & not merely the externally beautiful person that matters, the film ventures to define!
