Roshan Mathew and Darshana Rajendran's Paradise gets a release date

The film is helmed by Sri Lankan director Prasanna Vithanage

Roshan Mathew-Darshana Rajendran starrer Paradise, which premiered at last year's Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), is set for theatrical release on June 28. The film is helmed by Sri Lankan director Prasanna Vithange.

According to the makers, "Paradise portrays the scenario of 2022 Sri Lanka during its financial crisis, where surging inflation leads to food, medication, and fuel shortages, resulting in blackouts and public unrest. Against this backdrop, the film tells the story of a TV producer, Kesav, and his wife, Amrita, a vlogger, who arrive in Sri Lanka to celebrate their wedding anniversary. However, cracks appear in their relationship when conflicts deepen due to an unexpected turn."

In October 2023, Paradise won the Kim Jiseok award for Best Film at BIFF 2023. The film marks the maiden collaboration between Mani Ratnam's Madras Talkies and Malayalam cinema through Kerala's Newton Cinema. It has Rajeev Ravi as the cinematographer, Sreekar Prasad as the editor, Tapas Nayak as the sound designer, and K as the music director.
