Sufiyum Sujatayum became the first Malayalam movie to be released directly on an OTT platform (Amazon Prime) before it’s theatrical release.
Directed by Naranipuzha Shanavas and produced by Vijay Babu under his banner, Friday Film House, the film stars Jayasurya and Aditi Rao Hydari.
The film revolves around Sujata (mute) who is in love with her neighbour, a Sufi priest but her father gets her married off to a well-do-to NRI, in Dubai. Ten years have passed since and she thinks that she’s left that love in her past – until, one day, she gets a call. Her husband (Rajeev) decides to bring her back to the village. What follows, forms the crux of Sufiyum Sujatayam, a musical love story.
