Ex-NMAMIT students come together to make a Malayalam docudrama

Recently, NMAMIT college mates from Mangalore and long-time friends – Preetham, Chetan, Rajesh, Satish, Jatin, Prashanth and Senna – got together to make a realistic Malayalam docudrama titled 0-41*. Shot in Kanhangad of Kasaragod district in Kerala, this docudrama is written and directed by Senna Hegde who is from this town. This 91-minute film is a beautiful representation of the everyday life of a group of people who spend their evenings playing Volleyball, entering a world far removed from the bustle of life. The film showcases their life, their aspirations and fears, and their point of view on the rest of the world. Volleyball becomes the crucial part of this film as it acts as the thread holding the film together. The most intriguing aspect about 0-41* is the local dialect, making the film the first of its kind to come out of Kasaragod area.

Furthermore, 0-41* entirely comprises a cast of non-actors who play characters with their own names and occupations as they do in real life. The film was shot over just nine days with a four-man crew – namely Keertan Poojary (cinematography), Unni Abhijith (sound), Jayanth Seege (Assistant Director) and Syam Krishnan (Editor).
