Deciphering 'Uyare' Trailer. The story of an acid attack survivor.

'Uyare' is Manu Ashokan’s directorial debut starring Parvathy Thiruvothu, Asif Ali and Tovino Thomas. The reel is penned by the pair Bobby-Sanjay, whose credits include the teenage pregnancy drama Notebook (2006), Manju Warrier’s comeback How Old Are You (2014) and Ayalum Njanum Thammil (2012), which won a Kerala state award for its exploration of the dynamic between a doctor and his junior. The focus in Uyare is firmly on gender-based violence, Sanjay told Scroll.in. “It’s a chauvinist’s idea of how a woman will be of no value if she’s disfigured, if she’s not beautiful.” The company is aiming for an April 26th release- – months ahead of the Deepika Padukone-starrer 'Chhapaak' directed by Meghna Gulzar. This reel also narrates the story of an acid attack survivor. Unlike Chhapaak, Pallavi (Parvathys') is an imaginary character (the writers said they spoke to several acid attack survivors as part of their research).

Manu Ashokan hopes that Uyare will not be slotted as a movie only for women, but will have a wider appeal. “A director’s work belongs to the masses, yet, I’m also the audience,” he said. “Just because the film is about a young woman who has acid thrown at her doesn’t make it a film for women only. When something like this happens, the whole family suffers. The issues in the film are relevant to young people.”
