Popular producer Sunitha Tati, the founder of Guru Films, who made a mark with several films like Oh Baby, Sahasam Swasaga Sagipo and Saakini Daakini recently, is smitten by SonyLIV’s latest release Wonder Women. The multilingual film, largely shot in English, directed by Anjali Menon, takes us through the trials and tribulations of five pregnant women who enrol at a prenatal centre in Kerala.

In a tweet earlier today, Sunitha wrote, “Director @AnjaliMenonFilm never fails to surprise us with her unconventional format of storytelling to create the maximum impact on audience. #WonderWomen is an incredibly heartwarming presentation of 5 women which is not to be missed.” Ronnie Screwvala and Ashi Dua Sara bankrolled the film under RSVP and Flying Unicorn Entertainment.

Nadiya Moidu, Nithya Menen, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Padmapriya, Sayanora Phillip, Archana Padmini and Amruta Subhash play the lead roles in the film. The film is a mishmash of several languages - Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu and English. The narrative, edited by Praveen Prabhakar and cinematographed by Manesh Madhavan, spans around 80 minutes.

With production design by Arvind Ashok Kumar and costume design by Pampa Biswas, Wonder Women has music by Govind Vasantha. In its review on Wonder Women, OTTplay wrote, “Wonder Women is a light-hearted, poignant take on motherhood, sisterhood and the cultural diversity of the country. While the stellar star cast and their befitting performances are good reasons for you to watch it, this is an out-and-out (director) Anjali Menon show.”

Sunitha Tati’s both releases this year Dongalunnaru Jagratha and Saakini Daakini are streaming on Netflix. While the former was a survival thriller starring Sri Simha Koduri and Samuthirakani, the latter was an action comedy headlined by Regina Cassandra and Nivetha Thomas, directed by Sudheer Varma. Her next major release is the adaptation of the novel The Arrangements of Love, featuring Samantha and directed by Philip John.
