CPM leader VS Achuthanandan was so much impressed with the performance of actor Jayaram that the moment he came out of the theater, the leader called up Jayaram over the phone and congratulated him for his performance. Yes, Jayaram was applauded by the leader after seeing the actor's upcoming release Swapaanam, which had a special screening at Thiruvananthapuram for invited guests.
VS Achuthananthan said that Swapaanam is one of the best movie in Malayalam cinema so far and Jayaram's performance can be regarded as one of the finest by the actor in his whole career.
A special screening of Swapaanam was screened at Padmanabha Swami theater. The movie is directed by Shaji N Karun. Bengali actress kadambari plays the female lead in the movie. The rest of the cast include Siddique, Sajitha Madhathil, Vineeth and many others.
Swapaanam was also premired at DIFF on December. It is the first Malayalam movie to get its first screening outside India. Jayaram is doing the role of chenda artist (drummer) in this movie that he occasionally takes up in real life too. Swapaanam depicts the tragic life of Unni, a temple percussionist. Unni's passion for the chenda takes him through forbidden territories, challenging traditional values.
Hope that Swapaanam will bring back the glorious period of the Malayalam industry once again.
