LONDON March 9: Naaradan, a political thriller film directed by Aashiq Abu starring Tovino Thomas and Anna Ben is being successfully screened in the UK. Naaradan is screened in the UK by RFT Films, a leading Malayalam film distributor in the UK.
The film premiered on 3rd March has been running successfully all over the world. The reviews are very positive with majority agreeing that the film is a genuine portrayal of newsrooms and studios in India and is remarkably authentic.
Another review says that Naaradan lands a slap on the face of India’s sensationalist contemporary news anchors. It is referred as an enormously significant, thought-provoking film.
Chandraprakash, an upcoming journalist of News Malayalam, is a talk show host and television news anchor with a huge audience appeal. He is under pressure for doing stories that increases channel’s rating from his editors and bosses.
When a fellow journalist, Pradeep does a new story and lands a job at News Malayalam, Chandraprakash throws away his own moral principles and focuses on being the number one. Investors seeking new revenue streams invests in him and he starts Narada News, through it he becomes a kingmaker, an influential person who is able to provoke social violence, etc.
Fabricated and half-baked stories becomes his strategy to meet his ends and the film explores will a sociopath, power hungry person like him who thrives under the guise of an unassuming journalist could ever be stopped.
