As per producer Vijay Babu, “The theme of the movie is one that hasn’t been explored very often. The story is nuanced and complex, yet underlines one simple, universal truth – that love knows no rationality or bounds.”
The film marks Aditi’s return to Malayalam cinema after 13 years. She had previously acted in 2006 Malayalam film Prajapathi. “Sufiyum Sujatayum is a special film for me. I been lucky to work with some incredible people across India and this film marks my debut as the leading lady of a Malayalam film. The film is an innocent love story, where love is unburdened by prejudices and discrimination. The movie is a drama and narrated with a lot of sensitivity and honesty,” Aditi said in a statement.
“I had a great time working on the movie; it was challenging to work with some very brilliant colleagues and crew members. I’m really looking forward to the audience’s response. I hope they get immersed in the world of Sufi and Sujata like I did and I hope everyone makes their own special connection to the characters and the story,” she added.
Directed by Naranipuzha Shanavas, Sufiyum Sujatayum is the first mainstream Malayalam film to have a direct OTT release. The film has been shot by cinematographer Anu Moothedath and edited by Deepu Joseph. The music has been composed by M Jayachandran with lyrics by Hari Narayan.
