For the first time in my life, a film I made is being released today. A film called Kerala Cafe. A 63 print release in Kerala. 10 directors to share the excitement and anxiety with.
What exactly am I feeling besides the butterflies in my tummy?!!!
The closest approximation I can make is the kind of feeling one has when going to a new school. Remember how you felt odd at this new school but wanted to make friends and be liked? Well I feel the same way.
I am not someone who believes in films made by/for/of the filmmaker. Like in the rasa theory, I crave to know if my work can touch the audience… will it make them smile, worry, twitch their eyebrows, chuckle and make them think? And this I have been craving for a long time… and now its here, so lets face it with a smile and humility.
My name ‘Anjali’ means offering; and that is exactly what this is. A quirky piece of me to everyone. Happy Journey…
