Actress Jyothika will next be seen in Magalir Mattum which is being directed by Bramma and produced by her husband Suriya Sivakumar. The film is about a woman who takes her mother-in-law and her friends on a road trip and how their life transpires from there. Jyothika says that working on Magalir Mattum was a refreshing experience and the story of the film is an untouched one.
“Bramma approached me with a bound script three months prior to the shoot. I was impressed when I read the story. It is about how a daughter-in-law takes her mother-in-law and her friends on a road trip. This is a story that has been untouched. What surprised me more was that a story like this came from a man,” Jyothika was quoted in a report in The Indian Express.
Jyothika also adds that it is tough for women-centric films like Magalir Mattum to sustain in a male-dominated industry. “This film has been in the making for two years. As this is a male-dominated industry, it is quite a challenge for a women-centric films to be made and earn a profit. The situation is such that, even a bad movie which has a male lead, runs to packed houses for three to four days, while a women-centric film despite having a good content is taken off the theaters after a weekend,”Jyothika adds further.
Magalir Mattum is being released on September 15th, 2017 worldwide. Besides Jyothika, Magalir Mattum also features Bhanu Priya, Urvashi and Saranya Ponvannan.
