To celebrate the centenary of Indian cinema, five young directors of Malayalam cinema come together to direct a film. Titled as 5 Sundarikal, the film is a love anthology with 5 segments, one each directed by Amal Neerad, Aashiq Abu, Anwar Rasheed, Sameer Thahir and Shyju Khaled. The five directors have also dedicated the film to the 2 decades of their camaraderie.
As the title suggests, 5 Sundarikal celebrates womanhood with each segment focusing on a particular role played by women in the society - mother, daughter, lover, wife and actress. Aashiq Abu's segment titled as Gowry has Kavya Madhavan and Biju Menon in important roles. Amal Neerad's segment, titled as Kullante Bharya features Reenu Mathews and Dulquer Salman. Anwar Rasheed's Aami has Asmitha Sood, Honey Rose and Fahadh Faasil in the lead roles. Sameer Thahir's Esha has Isha Sharvani and Nivin Pauly playing the lead roles. Shyju Khalid's segment Sethulakshmi features child artistes Anika and Chethan.
Each segment of 5 Sundarikal will have a different cinematographer. Amal Neerad, Shyju Khalid, Rajeev Ravi, Ranadive and Alby wield the camera for the different segments of the film. The film features music by Gopi Sundar, Bijibal, Prashant Pillai and Yakzan Gary Pereira.
5 Sundarikal is produced by Amal Neerad under the banner of Amal Neerad Productions. The film is scheduled for release on June 20, 2013.
