Shyamaprasad’s Elektra,a visual treat

Shyamaprasad’s fifth film at IFFI ,Elektra, a psycho-sensual drama is a journey into the bruised familial bonds of an aristocratic household in Kerala. The film screened today at IFFI 2010, in the presence of its main cast Manisha Koirala and Director Shyamaprasad, explores the texture of desire and loss. The film has wonderful performances by Nayantara and Manisha Koirala. Talking to the media at a press Conference at Media Centre here today, Shyamaprasad said the story is based on Greek myth of Electra and set in contemporary times in an aristocratic family of Kerala. He said, it has shades of Freudian Electra complex. I want explore the themes that have endless validity and I make no attempt to whip through quasi-political narratives that lose appeal after few years. The story of Electra (a Greek mythological character) is several thousands of years old, but it is still relevant ,Shyam added.
