5 INSPIRING WOMEN DIRECTORS IN MOLLYWOOD

Mollywood boasts a number of acclaimed directors, musicians and actors. The Malayalam film industry has seen a sudden growth and everyone seems to love the refreshing change. This can be credited to a lot of open mindedness in the industry that offers opportunities not just to men, but also to several women to shine in fields, which are generally male dominant. Women in the film industry generally were actors and musicians. Scriptwriting and direction were strictly reserved for the men. In the past few years, perceptions have changed and there has been an entry of several brilliant scriptwriters and directors, owing to the change that Mollywood has seen. Being a woman, these people know exactly the plight of womanhood and use movies as their medium to express their passion and message.

These are a few women directors that have changed the perception of movies in past few years…

1. Anjali Menon

Anjali Menon is a writer cum director. She began her career as a screenwriter and a director for documentaries shot in the UK, Middle East and India. She directed two short films before she entered the field of directing feature films. She also wrote her own book, a collection of short stories called Monsoon Feast. She made her debut in 2009, with Kerala Café starring Mammooty and Dileep. However, she is well known for her films Ustad Hotel, for which she was the writer and Bangalore Days which were blockbuster hits.

2. Geetu Mohandas

 

Geetu was a five year old when she captured the hearts of her audience through the movie Onnu Mudhal Poojyam Vare, a Mohanlal starrer. She then acted in the remake of the Malayalam movie Ente Mamakuttiammakku titled En Bommukutti Ammavukku, where she played the title role. Having a stinst of cinema in her since childhood, she went on to pursue acting and directing and later on acted in Nala Dhamayanthi, produced by Kamal Hassan.
