Enmeshed in all the glamour, hype, hoopla and controversies, AMMA's magnum opus Twenty:20 was released yesterday in 110 theatres. The film features a huge star cast of 70 actors, consisting of all the stars in Malayalam (except Meera Jasmine) and the best crew a film can boast about, including the most brilliant brains in the industry.
Twenty:20 was finished in 20 production schedules during a period of one year. The discussions and writing prior to the production lasted 3 years. AMMA definitely deserves accolades for piecing together a story which has so many characters and producing it, gathering all the stars at one place.
The controversies regarding Twenty:20, which started with Meera Jasmine's absence, are still continuing with some of the B centres refusing to release the film. But all the A centres in Kerala have welcomed the film with open arms. All the district headquarters and other major towns will have the film playing in three theatres simultaneously.
