The mind, through the lens of Malayalam cinema
Cinema is often looked upon as a source of entertainment. However, cinema has a much larger purpose to serve. As with any medium of art, cinema must offer an avenue for spiritual enlightenment. It must help us feel, think and reflect on the larger picture of our lives. It must help us build inroads into ourselves.
