Parvathy Thiruvothu and Anjali Menon’s Wonder Women, which will begin streaming from November 18 on Sony LIV, marks their third collaboration
Some of actress Parvathy Thiruvothu’s best roles in her career have been in Anjali Menon’s films – Bangalore Days and Koode. Their third collaboration, Wonder Women, promises to have another memorable performance from the Uyare actress.
In a recent interview, the Malayalam star also shared a reason Anjali’s films offer a lot of liberty as well as trust to the actors to bring out their best selves.
“After working on an Anjali Menon film, it's very difficult to go to another set because the standards are set - about being open that is,” said the actress, in an interview with Film Companion. “I believe that when she brings in anybody to the set, they will have the same thread of empathy within them. I don't think Anjali Menon will collaborate with someone who would disrupt that energy.”
The actress also said that if there is someone who hampers that process, Anjali would ensure that they are “pretty far from the actors”. She also said the Manjadikuru filmmaker is someone who loves her actors. In fact, Anjali in a recent interview agreed that she prefers to work with “great people who can act” rather than great actors.
Wonder Women features an ensemble cast that also includes Nithya Menen, Nadiya Moidu, Padmapriya Janakiraman, Amrutha Subash, Sayanora and Archana Padmini. It revolves around six pregnant women who attend a pre-natal class, headed by Nadiya’s character, and how over a course of a week, they come together and support each other as they navigate their way to motherhood, replete with fears, confusion, questions and hope.
The feel-good movie, which is also written by Anjali, is set to begin streaming on Sony LIV from November 18. The movie, which is essentially about friendship told against the backdrop of pregnancy, can also be streamed on OTTPlay Premium.
