A sensitive portrayal of Muslim psyche

The Milli Gazette Online

Thiruvananthapuram, April 17: Noted Malayalam film-maker Jayaraj, known for his movies treating subjects related to Hindu lifestyle, beliefs and customs in true traditional style, has chosen to enter a new terrain. 

His new film 'Daivanamathil,' (In the Name of God) deals with the topic of Islamic extremism from a personal and emotional angle. 

The film, due for release later this month, is about a Muslim girl's attempt to retrieve the mind of her husband who strays into extremism after his bitter experiences following the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. 

The movie is scripted by Aryadan Shaukat, whose first film with eminent director T V Chandran 'Padam Onnu: Oru Vilapam' won several national and international honours. 

While in first film Shaukat dealt with the pathetic story of a studious Muslim girl who ended up as a second wife to a Gulf employee and the resultant tragedy, he takes up a more universal theme of how Muslim youths deviate to the path of extremism and how the Muslim world is tarred as 'extremist' for crimes committed by a tiny fraction of the community. 

The central character in the film is Anwar, played by Prithviraj, whose grandfather Sahib is portrayed as the voice of sobriety in the film. 
"Islam never encourages extremism. Even agonising cries of Muslims are being treated as extremism as the handiwork of a small minority among us makes people celebrate uglier enemies as world police," he tells his grandson who strays into a life of 'jihad'. (PTI)
