When the pandemic began, it was the Malayalam film industry that made quality films despite all obstacles by quickly adjusting to the “new normal” of the world. Films like Aarkkariyam, Joji, and Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam were produced during the time of the pandemic and depicted a guarded society.
In the aftermath, Malayalam cinema is once again examining the stories that occurred during one of the most difficult eras in modern times, while other film industries are reluctant to depict the dreary period on screen. Basil Joseph is the lead character in Kadina Kadoramee Andakadaham, the most recent lockdown movie produced in Malayalam.
On Monday, the Kadina Kadoramee Andakadaham trailer was released. The struggle of a small-time businessman, whose way of life is negatively impacted by the pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, is the subject of the movie. The trailer just gives a few story details. However, it is clear that it will be yet another moving tale of a man struggling to survive in the outside world.
