Acclaimed director Shyama Prasad releases his offbeat “Ore Kadal”, starring Mammootty, Meera Jasmine and Narain, for Onam on August 26. The film plumbs the depths of the mind. Mammootty plays an internationally known economist who is an alcoholic and a loner. Meera plays a housewife who gets emotionally entangled with the economist. Says Shyama Prasad: “The film is based on Bengali writer Sunil Gangopadhya’s classic ‘Heerak Deepti’. ‘Ore Kadal’ is an intimate study of the man-woman relationship set in modern times in a Chennai milieu. It has great performances by the lead actors.” It has haunting music by the veteran Ouseppachan.
