Sudev Nair's Sleeplessly Yours gets digital release
Sleeplessly Yours explores, in a non-linear fashion, the relationship of an eccentric couple whose sleep deprivation experiment goes wrong over four days
Debutant director Goutham Soorya’s independent film Sleeplessly Yours has been released on YouTube. The film, starring Sudev Nair and Devaki Rajendran, premiered at the 2018 International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK).
Sleeplessly Yours explores, in a non-linear fashion, the relationship of an eccentric couple Jessy-Maanu whose sleep deprivation experiment goes wrong over four days. When Maanu goes missing, Jessy, in an attempt to find her, also tries to dig into her mysterious past.
The film is powered by intense performances from its two leads. Goutham co-directed Sleeplessly Yours with cinematographer Sudeep Elamon (Ayyappanum Koshiyum, Finals). The filmmakers had earlier hoped to release it theatrically but later opted for a digital release.
Sudev Nair is known for his appearances in films such as Mamangam and Anarkali, while Devaki Rajendran is a Thiruvananthapuram-based dancer.
