Ashly Bungalow in Peerumedu has been throbbing with life from the 18th of June with the shooting of the Malayalam movie Kaanakanmani by Akku Akbar with Jayaram and Padmapriya in the lead. Roy and Maya belonging to two different religions have had a love marriage. They are blessed with a six year old daughter Anakha. It is still an extended honeymoon for Roy and Maya, who are like two souls lost in love, rather than just husband and wife.
Though the ugly face of religion has never posed a menace in the life of Roy and Maya, there have been occassions when knowingly or unknowingly, minor issues have cropped up, all thanks to Maya's grandmother. Maya's grandma cannot let go the age old customs of the conventional Brahmanical tradition.
The problems surface when the pertinent question is raised regarding the child, as to what should be her faith. How they realize that love is the binding faith and how the child herself is instrumental in making that realization dawn upon them is the crux of the whole story. While Jayaram essays the role of Roy, Padmapriya comes as Maya and Baby Nivedita as Anakha. Sukumari essays the role of the grandmother, while Biju Menon will be seen as their family friend and Vijayaraghavan as the father of Roy ( Jayaram).
Kaanakanmani produced by Anto Joseph, has screenplay by K Girishkumar and the shooting is proceeding in and around Ernakulam and other surrounding places.
