Malayalam’s first OTT release, Sufiyum Sujathayum will hit Amazon Prime on 3rd July,’20. When Amazon Prime Video announced the release of 7 Indian films on it’s platform, Malayalam movie starring Aditi Rao Hydari in the titular role became one of the seven to bypass theatrical release and jump on ‘direct-to-web’ for the cinephiles out there.
Sufiyum Sujathayam, touted to be a romantic musical drama, highlights a very sensitive issue of ‘Love Jihad’. A unique love story which revolves around dumb and voiceless Sujatha and a Sufi priest lover, whom Sujhatha blindly falls in love with, despite the difference in their communities and preachings.
The trailer recently took to the official YouTube page of Amazon Prime and in 2 minutes 55 seconds, we saw the glimpses of a beautiful Sujhatha and her love for a Sufi priest, their secret letter exchanges and how they are attract towards each other to ultimately fall in love with each other. But where there is love, there is drama. Heart-breaks and disparities in communities part their ways and how Sujatha’s life takes a twist and turn is all that you will see in the movie.
Check out the trailer.
