Storyline

A sprawling portrait of rural life in Sri Lanka; the story revolves around a boy and his friend--a blind girl who he accidentally 'heals' by giving her sight. Though the girl believes the boy healed her, in reality the boy has no such powers. The father of the boy fools the village folk into believing he's a healer, but ultimately the sham is exposed, causing the village to revolt against the boy and his family. Written by Thivanka Rukshan Perera

Rekava was the trailblazer of Sri Lankan film songs.
15 September 2007 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

Prior to the film Rekava Sri Lankan film songs were completely under the Indian influence.

The immortal songs of Rekava were able to escape that tradition.

The songs of the film Sandesaya reaffirmed this new trend of having Sri Lanka's own music and lyrics in film songs.

Songs for both these films were composed by Sunil Santha and still sung around the country.

Fr. Marcelline Jayakody wrote lyrics for the songs in Rekava.

Through the songs in this film a new set of young Sri Lankan singers were brought in to the limelight.
