Here’s the much awaited the Bus Song – “Odichodichu” The Travel Song..
‘Aabhaasam’ is a journey through and into the suppressed desires of love and inhuman acts that rises from it. Gandhi travels, run by Democracy travel agency departs from Bangalore for Kerala and its travellers represent the members of an audience it tries to communicate with.
The journey happens over a night where it becomes a partial analysis of a schizophrenic society which evolved through different times, with its eyesight diminished to binary views under a systemic frustration of patriarchy. Here bus becomes the frame of a system and its perpetrators and victims, the travellers. In its ambition, the film is two fold. One as the subject and one as its critique. The confined space of this bus, welcomes and critiques the mainstream audience who would watch and celebrate the events in it.
Here’s the much awaited the Bus Song of Aabhaasam – Odichodichu | The Travel Song..
After much delay, the trailer of the Malayalam movie Aabhasam is finally out. The film starring Rima Kallingal and Suraj Venjaramoodu, was to hit the screens on January 5 but was delayed due to the ‘A’ certificate awarded by the CBFC.
“Jinnah is gone, Marx is full, Gandhi has two seats…otherwise there is Godse and Ambedkar. Which one do you want?” the trailer opens with this question. The film, which is a dark comedy on the politics prevailing in the country, is built around an overnight bus journey from Bengaluru to Kerala. The bus service company known as Democracy Travels has buses with names of persons associated with the police and democracy in some way. The trailer also hints at beef politics, moral policing and communal tensions present in the country.
Actor Prakash Raj took to Facebook to release the trailer of the film. Stating that the film is an “engrossing, seeking, questioning film,” he launched the YouTube link of the trailer on his post.
