'Ennu Ninte Moideen' shouldn't be seen as a cliche film: Prithviraj

Prithviraj Sukumaran says his latest Malayalam film "Ennu Ninte Moideen" is not a cliched one, where a Hindu girl falls in love with a Muslim boy. The actor says there's much more to it than that.

"Ennu Ninte Moideen", which opened last week, narrates a true love story that took place in the Kozhikode suburb of Mukkam in the 1960s. It tells the story of a Muslim youth Moideen and a Hindu woman Kanchanamala who fall in love.

In the film, Prithviraj plays the role of Moideen, while Parvathy is seen as Kanchanamala.

The film's director R.S. Vimal and Prithviraj opened up about the film while taking part in a TV channel discussion.

"There is so much material in this story... and hence, packing it into one was tough. Look, this should not be seen as a cliche film, where a Hindu girl falls in love with a Muslim boy. There's much more than that," said Prithviraj.

He says he was surprised when Kanchanamala said that she will give the nod to the film only if he is given the role of Moideen.

"Believe me, I would have no qualms if this film fetches no award because we are all extremely delighted with the final product and that has given all of us a lot of cheer," said Prithviraj.

Vimal pointed out that he first did a documentary way back in 2006 on Kanchanamala and it was that spark which forced him to quit his journalistic job and embarked on the journey to make this into a commercial film.

"The documentary that I did was showed to Prithviraj and it was after more than seven years of work that I finished the paper work...shooting took close to a year," said Vimal.

Incidentally, the film has run into a bit of trouble after Kanchanamala said that the film has been distorted.

Youth Congress legislator V.T. Balram also posted on Facebook on Monday that while the film has come out well, the mention of the Congress party leaders at that time has gone wrong and had those behind the film done a bit of serious research, it could have been corrected.
