"Baddegama " A film made out of a weaker script
1 February 2006 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

Lester's "Baddegama"was based on the novel "Village in the Jungle" outcasts the sorrowful living of the inhabitants of the village Baddegama. Baddegama is a village ( Then , now developed) situated in the southern Province of SriLanka. This Film was supported by Lester's ( The Director ) most favored cinematographer Villie Blake , and one of the most skillful men Lester always willing to recruit . Joe Abeywickrama Plays the leading role here as Silindu. Vijaya Kumaratunga who was the most popular actor then plays a different role as Babun. His appearance as a village-man is not so favorable to the film. The Script of Prof. A.J. Gunawardene is not as good as the novel reader has aspired and assumed prior to watching the film. Sir Arthur C. Clerk does a guest appearance as the magistrate in the film. Joe Abeywickrama does a very attractive and a outstanding role here as Silindu. Finally , the message here is that Sinhalese have done the most damage to the country and their people than that of the imperialists .Isn't it still a reality ?? Devaka S. Jayasuriya 90, Old Kesbawa Road Nugegoda, SriLanka .
