The Origins of the new
MALAYALAM NEW WAVE

Middle-of-the-road, slice-of-life Malayalam films such as The Great Indian Kitchen and Malik have been a rage with pan-India audiences during the pandemic. These films represent a new wave of Malayalam cinema that began in the early 2010s. At HIFF, we present the early films that sparked off this wave. Noted film critic and writer Anna M. M. Vetticad will be introducing this section and steering a discussion after each screening.
