The overwhelming wave of constructive suggestions for Malayalam brief movie New Regular has come as a shock for its author/director Monisha Mohan Menon and producer Vimal PK. The brief movie is a love story of two ladies and the try has been to start out a dialog and normalise homosexuality. It has already hit multiple million views since its launch three weeks in the past on YouTube. 

“As I have no idea a lot about same-sex relationships, I spoke to people who find themselves in them. What I realized is that love has no sexuality, love is love,” Monisha says. The problem for the group was normalising with out sensationalising.

The narrative follows the trajectory of the connection – the primary flush of affection, fights, jealousy and falling out of affection. “The funds might not be big however we didn’t compromise on the making,” says Monisha, an engineer who give up her IT job to hitch the movie business. She was the lead researcher on Kayamkulam Kochunni and was a researcher and assistant director on Prathi Poovankozhi and One, and is now engaged on the script for her first characteristic movie. 

“Throughout our dialogue, we determined that we needed a love story, one thing like 500 Days of Summer season or OK Kanmani, however with two ladies as the primary characters. There’s a variety of judgement on the subject of homosexuality and the emotions of guilt and wrongdoing that accompanies it. With this movie, we’re asking audiences to see it because the ‘new regular’,” says Vimal, who can be a associate at Cafe Viibee, Kakkanad. Monisha is a part of the group of budding movie business aspirants that Viibee seeks to encourage 

“All love tales, no matter sexuality, are the identical as are all of the phases of a relationship. I don’t perceive why, normally, in mainstream Malayalam cinema homosexuality is portrayed as one thing darkish and intimacy shouldn’t be normalised. I needed to point out the connection otherwise – as comfortable and shiny as gay love is also,” provides Monisha.   

The messages she has been getting from younger individuals struggling to return to phrases with their sexuality and are available out to their households have been a supply of encouragement for her. “I get a number of messages, particularly from women, who inform me that due to the movie they’ll provoke a dialog with their households. That they acquired braveness from it,” she says.

“On the finish of the day, the movie is about acceptance!” says Vimal.
