To commemorate 60 years of diplomatic relations between India and Sri Lanka, the Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the High Commission of Sri Lanka, New Delhi, is presenting 60 Years Of Sri Lankan Cinema, from 14th to 22nd June, at the Sarathi Studios Preview Theatre, Ameerpet. 9 award-winning Sri Lankan films will be screened during the 9-day festival.
As part of the festival, Walls Within (Pavuru Walalu) is being screened on the 5th day. The film is directed by Prasanna Vithanage, and has Tony Ranasinghe, Nita Fernando, Sangeetha Weeraratne, Damayanthi Fonseka, Mahendra Perera and Roger Seneviratne playing the lead roles.
Pavuru Walalu is a story of a middle-aged woman who is in the vortex of a conflict between her family and true love. Violet conforms faithfully to the behaviour expected of a single mother as she tries to provide a living for herself and her daughters. Her husband, who left when the children were very young, visits now and then to meet his daughters and to gloatingly remind Violet that she is still his lawfully-wedded spouse. But the story talks an interesting turn when Violet's first and only love Victor reappears again in her life.
The film got a Best Actress award. The entry is free for everyone. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy Of The Hyderabad Film Club, at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
