Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam is an 85-minute film that takes place within a car. Starring Rima Kallingal and Jitin Puthanchery, this movie is themed around a relationship drama. The movie had its premiere at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) in Thiruvananthapuram in February this year. You will now be able to stream the movie on NeeStream, Koode, Cave, ROOTS, Saina Play and First shows.
Fun fact: This film is a full-length movie filmed in one long take. The director, Don Palathara, placed the camera in front of the car so that the focus is on the characters.
The film introduces Rima Kallingal’s and Jitin Puthanchery ‘s characters as a live-in couple. Their parents aren’t aware of this. Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam is all about the heated conversations between them in the car about a ‘situation’. We also see how external (invisible) characters play a role in making their conversation more complicated. Do keep a lookout on Neeraja Rajendran who plays a pivotal character in the movie.
Now you might wonder – How can I watch an 85-minute long movie of two people arguing? We personally think that the dialogues presented will hook you throughout. It isn’t monotonous as you think it is. Watch the movie for how the characters are able to keep on the edge of your seats.
