        THE BAN HAS GIVEN THIS PIECE OF CRAP PUBLICITY
        IT’S BOARING AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED ‘WALKING SOUNDS’, AS THATS WHAT YOU HEAR THROUGHOUT.

        LOVERS OF SEAFOOD & TEA MAY GET PUT-OFF, MEAT & VEG LOVERS REMAIN UNAFFECTED.

        THE 4-5 SEX SCENES ARE THE ONLY PLUSSES; ALL ON DERALICT BUILDINGS AGAINST THE WALL, ‘BANGING BY THE WALL’ OR ‘DERALICT SEX’.

        Something that you think is not suitable for you may not be the case for others, as long as the guy didn’t force you to watch it. Youtube has a slider to pull the movie forward for those scenes you deemed not suitable.

    Good job CT and let the viewers themselves see and judge but of course jokers in the form of Fathima Fukushima alias Lorenso’ of Lankaweb will talk sick while K A Sumansekera alias ‘Leela’ will divert issues and bring his lover boy Sambandan into the picture while Jim Softly will talk of the earth being square ;-)

      Seriously ela kolla has a problem. He seems to be tripping on the censorship line all the time. He cannot express himself without breaking the code due to his lack of imagination and language disability. More suited for him would kalley kolla,

        Just imagine watching this film with your sons and daughters. I wonder whether the producers of this film watched this with their children, parents and their grand parents. SLG should be commended for censoring this low class, disgusting film in SL.

          I agree. This same story could have enacted better without the porn fiction, since it involves some serious issues of ethnicity mix. It is slow moving, lacks imagination extremely unrealistic in acting. A waste of time. By banning the film, people will want to see it for sake of curiosity.

          I agree the film is utter crap (to put it mildly) but that is just your opinion and mine. People should be allowed to see it and decide for themselves.

          I didnt have time to see the whole movie but skimmed through it,cinematagraphic ( I hope is the correct word ) is not that good,its slow moving and the camera seems to far away too in case you didnt notice it

          But on the other hand it potrays human emotions and relationships very realistically and your comment about watching it with your sons and daughters is crap because if the film is certified as 18+ why will you take your sons and daughters who are underage?

          But you cannot class it as Porn as we have seen so many cheap flick Sinhala movies featuring Sumana Gomez of Age Wairaya fame with terrible gender violence being shown in cinemas and where was the so moralistic Govt Censor board at that time?

            Ideally, it can be expressed as ‘skimmed through it a few frames at a time’. The word Cinematographic as an adjective refers to the art of photography and camera work in film-making.

          Weera, if your sons and daughters are adults there shouldn’t be a problem. Were you under the impression that every movie must be family entertainment?

            May be it’s not an issue for you. But as a parent I would be really be embarrassed watching the explicit sexual acts with my adult sons and daughters. I guess it depends on how you are brought up by your parents and your culture. Obviously this is not such a big issue these days when you hear fathers molesting their own daughters and children young as five years getting raped by sex maniacs. Don’t worry, time will come soon when parents will engage in sexual intercourse in front of their children and vice versa.

              weera its indeed strange that your keen of watching this movie with your adult sons and daughters normally parents read a review of the movies plot before watching it.

              also where were you when Sumana Gomez was flahing it all in cheap pron flicks under the Age Wairaya name which had a lot of gender based violence?
              You might not want to see a movie which has adult themes as in flying fish when children are around?

              But how do you feel about the teledramas where wife beating and harrsaing housemaids is the norm? or when Rupavahini paraded dead bodies of those killed during war? didnt that contravene your ‘culture’?

              If something embarrasses you, Weera, don’t do it in public. If you feel compelled to watch movies with your sons and daughters, then yes, you should stick to mainstream fare. However, I don’t think movies should be critiqued with your family habits in mind. Not every movie must cater to families. Nor is anyone forcing you to watch this movie. That doesn’t mean others must be deprived of it because you and your family are joined at the hip.

              As for child abuse in the home, perhaps there would be less of it if as a society we weren’t so sexually repressed and brought up to think that sex is some dirty deed that must not be discussed within the family.

    Sanjeewa has talent but unless he frees himself from submission to ideology that negatively affected the films of Handagama, Vimukthi and Satyajith his talent also will be wasted in the international award circuit still guided by orientalist liberal notions.

    This movie is crap – not only because of the fornication scenes but because there is no story and it is disjointed.
    Photography is terrible.

    The movie is different however has very little artistic merit. Porno scenes to attract attention is silly innovation, for audiences in Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lankan movie makers have a perennial weakness that this movie maker also has succumbed to. It is slow moving. Really slow, slow, moving.

    The issue with movie making in Sri Lanka is that the man at top knows best. No input is allowed by the rest of the crew. Users are never consulted before or after making of the movie. The editor is hand, leg and mouth bound, during the editing. The catch cry is don’t waste valuable footage. The director decides all. Sometimes the producer decides all.

    Sorry 2 out of ten is my score.

    After 15 min of watching, my mind starts battle with me to stop watching, but I fought and gave it more time, then some more time and a bit more! but then finally. I had to give up.

    The quality of the film also have effected the poor taste of the movie. It is extremely slow moving, camera is almost all the time is in a distance. Lacks dialog. When you have a less dialog and distance camera it’s hard to
    understand the message (or at lest try to make up the message)

    At the end it makes no sense at all. The director at least did not make an effort to build the main characters, their roles.In my opinion it’s a waste.

    During the first minutes, it became a head ache. They used subtitles what the director could not get the actors or actresses could not do.

    It is simply a low budget fiction – movie, by a director who does not have any talent in movie making. He used just sex to attract viewers.

    Handagama,Vimukthi and now Sanjeewa. These guys directed films for international arena and not for SL viewers. They were fully or partially funded by INGO’s or NGO’s supportive to tarnish the image of SL soldiers and monks etc… In this film has a scene that a monk took a T 56 into his hand and aim it to check it. What’s the message Sanjeewa trying to give us or the world? Though SL monks encourage soldiers to protect their country by going even to the bunkers during war period, this is unbelievable and never happen in SL. I never heard or saw a monk took a weapon into his hand and check it in SL.

    And also the love making scene is the worst I’ve ever seen. [Must say it is not suitable to SL viewers] It is simply like a man holding a woman[or about 60kgs. chunk of Flesh] and desperately trying to get rid of it.

      while i have not seen a monk with a machine gun,there have been many case of monks with pistols going about if in doubt ask that bugger Elle Gunawansa !

      also we saw in pilliyandala and dambulla how the so called ‘virteous’ and ‘peaceful’ monks behaved in a violent way and its on CT if you care to search,so please take your preaching about monks elsewhere as your not winning any followers here mate!

        I don’t want to win any die-asspora followers here because we already won. Elle Gunawansa thero is a great monk who devoted his life to save and educate street kids. Now who is the bugger peacelover? Is it you or Elle Gunwansa.

        Monks never peaceful whenever their existence threatened in any part of this world. That’s why Chinese monks develop Kung-Fu. Die-asspora,tamil politicians and INGO’s want monks to stay inside temple and mind their own business. That’s never gonna happen [Edited out].

    Three stories linked to the war in one realistic cinematic portrayal. It was revetting and brings into focus the tragedy the war was to many families and individuals. A widow who took to prostitution to feed her children. A son who witnessed the mother sell herself. A young women betrayed by a soldier who tells the monk, ” I do not have what Yasodhara ( Prince Siddhatha’s,s wife) had”. The Children being indoctrinated and the Tamil family that died because of a ransom demand they could not meet. The stupid and insensitive school Pricipal. The kindness of a man to a dead dog, amidst his own travail. Human passion realistically portrayed. A young woman’s revenge on her betrayer. The hunger and the difficulties of a widow to earn an income selling curd and reluctantly becomes a prostutute of sorts. This multifaceted struggle yet goes on almost five years after the war in many households in the former war zones.

    The war dead were luckier than many who survived it.

    A very sensitive film. The director and the actors deserve our unreserved praise.

    I thank CT for the opportunity to view it.
