Pioneering movie that can truly be called Sri Lanka's own
23 July 2005 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

This movie successfully breaks away from the Indian influence Sri Lankan movies had at the time. The music is remarkable. Each song is based on a different music tradition prevalent in Sri Lanka. Original tunes written by Sunil Santha were used, breaking away from the tradition of using plagiarized Indian music. Before this film director Lester James Peiris directed and produced the landmark Sri Lankan film Rekawa which was screened in 1956. It was the first film presented with a real Sri Lankan indigenous outlook and won several international awards. Sunil Santha wrote the unforgettable tunes for the songs in it, pioneering the art of film music in Sri Lanka.
