It is not a dream, since the road upto Mannuthy is 4 laned and it is only 140kms. And i use to drive in the same route monthly 2 times up and down on my Indica, 2.20 - 2.30 hrs with normal speed varies 50 to 100 kmph.

But it is always expected a traffic block at Kuthiran ghats, and the road is not so good from Kuthiran to Alathur.

25 Girls,Their Stories : A Film by Sanjeev Sivan

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Twenty-five girls in the age group of 10 and 17 years from the length and breadth of the state are all set to make history. Five documentaries made by this bunch of girls, among them 15 are Poor Home inmates, have been selected for eight international film festivals, including the Cannes.

The film titled ‘25 girls, their stories’, which narrates five different social issues, bring to canvas the issues of contemporary women through the eyes of a girl child. The idea was conceived and produced by Kerala Social Security Mission. Eminent filmmaker Sanjeev Sivan was the guiding force for the children and it was under his direction that the five documentaries have been produced.

‘’Even before its release, the documentary has gone places with eight international film festivals selecting it, of which six included it in the competition section. I am sure this project is going to bring many laurels to the state,’’ Sanjeev Sivan said.

The official release of the ‘25 girls’ will be held here on Monday for which Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi will be the chief guest. The title song for this documentary has been given by none other than Aamir Khan from his film ‘Taare Zameen Par’.

The girls were provided hands on training in the nuances of all aspects of film making by exponents of film industry such as Subhash Ghai, Resul Pookutty, Javed Jaffrey, Sangeeth Sivan, among others.

‘’A four-day workshop was conducted for them after which they learnt how to script a film and even how to sketch a film. They did an excellent work and that is the reason why the film received such a tremendous response,’’ Sanjeev Sivan said. The larger canvas depicts the entire making of the five short films through the experiences of one girl, Aashmi, hailing from Idukki.

‘’The five short films depict the social issues such as discrimination faced by HIV positive children in schools, how dowry has become a bane for a girl in society, gender inequality, domestic violence and child beggary,’’ said Dinesh Arora, Executive Director, Kerala Social Security Mission. The Social Security Mission plans to screen these documentaries in all government hospitals, anganwadis and major bus stands and railway stations to create public awareness.

I think Tamil Nadu have some regulations in this issue. now only Tamil named movies can get a tax benefit or something like that. Thats how Siddik's Bodyguard became Kavalal in Tamil.

Btw it is ridiculous to have these third rated movie names. They all lacks some creativity in the titles -Doubles, Trial, Traffic, Salt n Pepper what the?? Ever heard any Hollywood movie to have these type of titles?? (unless they are some comedy movies)

There is no problem in giving English names for Malayalam movies. We malayalees aren't that narrow minded. Names like Traffic is very suitable for the storyline. Or what else will you put? Gathagatham?

And what is so great about Hollywood movie titles? English is their first language. Normal words get overly used there. So they need to choose larger phrases. Giving common words as titles is not rare even in Hollywood. If hollywood can give movie names like "Salt" why can't we have Salt n Pepper.

Blessy's next movie will be named "Pranayam". It such a common word but nobody used it yet as a movie title.
