Poornima Bhagyaraj was trying to get a foothold in Hindi films when she was chosen to play Prabha in Fazil’s Manjil Virinja Pookal, which co-starred Mohanlal and Shankar. She speaks about learning Malayalam through Hindi, and how the film created so many stars.
It is hard to watch a film today that you distinctly remember watching 15 years ago. The same thoughts come back, some have evolved, and some new ones have come too. Why is Shankar so fatalistic? Why are his action sequences so engrossing? Why that open-ending?
