THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: On the fourth day of the week-long festival ‘Keraleeyam’, braving the rains, hundreds of people thronged the theatre complex to watch yesteryear Malayalam movies organized by Kerala State Film Academy and KSFDC. For movies like ‘Perunthachan’, ‘Vaishali’ and ‘Kolilakkam’, people stood in long beeline queues for hours before the start of the screening. The films were screened to a packed audience later. Veteran actor Jayan's last film 'Kolilakkam' was enthusiastically received by the audience.

The biggest queue was witnessed for the 1964 film Bhargavi Nilayam. Even two hours before the screening, there were people standing in long queues, composed and calm as they can be, only to not miss this one-time theatre experience of an erstwhile classic. The film was screened in front of a packed audience at Sree Theatre. In the wake of Neelavelicham’s release in 2023, a lot of youngsters were in attendance to just gauge how the 2023 release fared with the 1964 classic.

The Kerala State Film Academy’s 2k restoration of ‘Olavum Theeravum’ got big appreciation from the audience. A total of 16 films were screened today in the capital city’s theatres.
