Janaki Sudheer and Amritha Vinod will soon be seen in the lesbian love story Holy Wound.
Holy Wound is a silent movie, and the director has maintained that he purposefully made that decision to convey the interaction between the movie's two female protagonists
Bigg Boss contestants Janaki Sudheer and Amritha Vinod will soon be seen in the lesbian love story Holy Wound which will debut on the OTT platform SS Frames on August 12. The film, which was directed by Ashok R. Nath, tells the tale of two young girls who fell in love as children but subsequently had to part ways.
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, director Ashok said the movie aims to “drive home the message of how gender does not play a pivotal role when it comes to love." The movie has been screened at a number of film festivals, including Sahasrara International Film Festival, KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, and Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival.
Holy Wound is a silent movie, and the director has maintained that he purposefully made that decision to convey the interaction between the movie’s two female protagonists.
From the trailer, it can be grasped that the story is about two gay women, one who gets married against her will and is subjected to sexual harassment and another who is forced to become a nun.
Over the past few months, the movie has encountered several challenges. Two nuns from Jharkhand moved the court to stay the film’s release. The petition claimed that the film could hurt religious sentiments. However, Ashok has said that there is no scope for any hurting of sentiments as at its core, is a simple story between two characters. He told OTT Play that the movie does, however, shed light on how patriarchy and men’s expectations of how women should behave cause a stifling culture for women.
Written by Paul Wiclif and produced by Sandeep, the film also stars Sabu Proudheen.

Holy Wound: Asok R Nath’s film on lesbian love to stream on OTT platform SS Frames, here’s when to watch it
The movie, which has Janaki Sudheer, Amrita Vinod and Sabu Praudeen in lead roles, is set to drop on the streaming service
- Sanjith Sidhardhan Team OTTplay
Last Updated: 01.17 PM, Aug 05, 2022
It’s OTT platforms galore in Malayalam these days. After the launch of several streaming services such as Matinee, First Shows, Jai Ho, Yessma and Theatre Live this year, the latest to join the list is SS Frames that will go live with Asok R Nath’s directorial Holy Wound.
The movie, which has Janaki Sudheer, Amrita Vinod and Sabu Praudeen in lead roles, is set to premiere on the platform on August 17. Holy Wound had been screened in several film festivals including Sahasrara International Film Festival, KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival and Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Holy Wound’s director Asok had told us that the movie seeks to “drive home the message of how gender does not play a pivotal role when it comes to love”. Holy Wound is also an experimental venture – a silent film – and the filmmaker had revealed that he deliberately chose to make it that way to communicate the relationship between the women protagonists in the movie.
Asok says that certain feelings transcend words and conversations, and making it a silent venture also helps the viewers focus on the emotions of the characters better. The director also explained that there was no room for controversies as the movie, at its core, is a simple story between two characters. The movie, however, does shine light on how patriarchy and men’s expectations of how women must be, leads to a suffocating society for women.

Holy Wound was initially set for an OTT release in February when the platform’s launch was initially mooted. But it has been pushed for August 17, which also coincides with the auspicious Malayalam month of Chingam. Meanwhile, Asok has completed shooting Vishnu Unnikrishnan’s Red River and Orilathanalil. He is currently working on the movie Outcast.

'Bramayugam': Mammootty's tour de force anchors this gripping monochrome horror | Movie Review
Mammootty has once again reinvented himself in Rahul Sadasivan's 'Bramayugam'. No accolades can adequately capture the megastar's dedication to pushing his boundaries and embracing excellent roles. Mammootty takes on the role of Kodumon Potti, a weathered tantrik whose age masks the potent magic simmering within.
Filmed entirely in black and white, the movie creates a suspenseful atmosphere with shadows dancing in every frame.
View this post on Instagram A post shared by Onmanorama (@onmanorama)
The haunting beauty of the monochrome format amplifies the shadows, playing tricks on your mind as something unseen seems to writhe in every corner. The tension crackles, drawing you deeper into the story, refusing to let your eyes stray even for a fleeting moment. You'll find yourself glued to the screen, waiting for the next twist or turn, unsure of what's coming next. The film seamlessly merges horror, thriller, and folktale elements, with horror subtly woven into the shadows and sounds. Rather than relying on jump scares, the movie crafts a claustrophobic atmosphere, gradually building a sense of terror.
Mammootty's Puzhu review: Unearthing a paranoid worm crawling under your skin
'Bheeshma Parvam' movie review: Amal Neerad's Mammootty ‘Mass Act’
Arjun Ashokan plays a ' paanan ' who, seeking safety, stumbles upon a Mana (traditional Brahmin household) where he meets Kodumon Potti and his house help, played by Sidharth Bharathan. As the story progresses, Arjun's character realizes that the situation is far from ordinary, leading to unexpected twists.
For those familiar with the movie 'Kumari', starring Aishwarya Lekshmi, the ambience of 'Bramayugam' may feel similar, despite entirely different plots. 'Bramayugam' follows a typical storyline reminiscent of old folktales, evoking a sense of curiosity and wonder. In the first half, the mysterious events inside the Mana keep audiences guessing, while the second half reveals the true mystery of the story.
However, the issue arises with the movie's ending, which seems somewhat clichéd and predictable. Towards the end, it seems like a struggle to neatly tie up loose ends, leaving a bit of dissatisfaction.
The Mana adds another layer of intrigue to the movie. Unlike what one might envision, it's overrun with wild grass and appears neglected. Exploring this aspect further could have enhanced the mystery, but unfortunately, it feels somewhat overlooked in the film.
Performance-wise, Mammootty dominates the screen, injecting the story with his trademark intensity and depth. His ability to effortlessly navigate characters with negative shades shines once again, making him the movie's undeniable driving force. Arjun Ashokan's performance hits you right in the feels – his helplessness and fear are palpable. Sidharth Bharathan, in contrast, exudes composure and delivers an equally impressive performance.
Director Rahul Sadasivan deserves credit for eliciting such powerful performances, allowing each actor to fully realize their potential. The background score is also undeniably effective.
Some loose ends and unanswered questions, especially surrounding Amalda Liz's character, might leave viewers feeling slightly frustrated. Nonetheless, for enthusiasts of thrilling stories with a touch of horror and folklore, this movie is an absolute must-see.
