    Sri Lanka Stage/MoviesDayaratne Ratagedara’s maiden movie Nildiya Yahana is aptly called ‘The Deep Blue Sleep’ for its modern touch on the local Romeo-Juliet legend.

    The talented young Saranga Dissasekara, who had made an impact on teledrama viewers, enters the reel along side the energetic Chathurika Peries who had transformed her role of the outspoken girl into the modest, yet charming character of Shehara. Her real life beau, Roshan Pilapitiya, has taken up the backseat role of her villainous brother which he portrays to effect.

    The film relates the moving love story of two teenagers, Shanuka and Shehara. It unfolds with a scene where Shanuka sends a text message to his ladylove. This scene with a modern backdrop brings in fresh emotions to viewers who are drained of the bygone era of romancing around trees.

    The romance is fuelled through correspondence over mobile telephones and the Internet, a welcome shift from the traditional love story projected on reel.

    As usual, the star-crossed lovers do not have a carefree path to tread. They come across many hurdles on their route. Shehara is the daughter of a business magnate, Jayawardana, who is well-armoured with underworld mafia. Shanuka’s father, Mayadunne, is an outspoken media personality who risks his life to unmask Jayawardana’s black dealings, a sufficient basis for both parties to be arch rivals.

     Tribute to Joe Abeywickrama - The 81st birth anniversary of the legendary actor falls on June 22 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    Sri Lanka Stage/MoviesHighly versatile actor and legend of the Sri Lankan silver screen, Joe Abeywickrama will turn 81 on June 22. He started off as a comic actor before making a name for his portrayal of character roles.

    Gammana Patabendige Don John Abeywickrama was born in Lellopitiya, near Ratnapura, on June 22, 1927. His father was Don Darwin Abeywickrama and his mother Udahagedara Manchanona. He was the eldest of four children.

    The rural background of his childhood surroundings with the glimpse of Adams' Peak and the values of the village folk had a great impact on Joe's upbringing. He learnt to appreciate nature and hard work. As he once stated, dialects and human expressions were not new to him as they were a part of his everyday existence.

    The village environment with its customs, rituals and lifestyles acted as a university for the young lad to gain fundamental education in life and filtered into the roles which he was to give life to in the future.

    Sri Lanka Stage/MoviesDharmasena Pathiraja

    By H. L. D. Mahindapala

    Film Review: It is with great expectations that I went to see Dharmasena Pathiraja's latest film, In search of a road, screened at the Union Theatre, Monash University, Melbourne. Since there was hardly any literature available about the film I gathered from what I heard that it was a docu-drama about A-9 Road - the main road that links the North to the South.

    Sri Lanka Stage/Movies A 'moving' Picture: Sankara commanded my attention at the very first scene, demanded my concentration throughout and has now left with me these appreciative thoughts.

    The film explores something which many philosophers, psychologists and creative human beings have tried to fathom; the mind. The subject matter is therefore not unique.

    But Prasanna Jayakody explores the mind of a monk who makes an attempt to concentrate on his artistic ability and his ultimate goal as a follower of the Buddha.
