Well, this is not a pressing issue in any case, but a curious look at the changing visual landscape of Kerala, discovered over a year of mundane travel across some districts. As our favourite stars Mammootty and Mohanlal migrated to brand ambassadorships of Kalyan and Malabar groups, more girls have started climbing the hoardings of local jewelery shops, not to speak of pan Kerala – Middle east jewelers!
Other local services such as tailoring, hair cutting and fancy shops resorting to cheaper versions of flex boards as opposed to hand painted hoardings. Both ways, Mollywood and its support for local businesses are in a phase of transformation in its visual form and delivery!
Super (Mega) star Mammotty is definitely existing on the walls and shutters of Kerala, perhaps the numbers and variety are a little lean compared to the diverse roles he has handled!
Participating in a successfully ‘designed’ campaign around this number 350 (parts per million), which is suppose to be the safe limit of Carbon dioxide in atmosphere. So the world marched for this number from Maldives to Himalayas in their own unique ways, perhaps for the first time (Summit under the ocean and over the Himalayas)! Here we marched across Brooklyn bridge on a rainy morning with slogans for responsible climate leaders in Copenhagen!
First began shooting Mollywood’s hand painted movie stars couple of years ago for fun! But in the last one year fun turned fad, when happen to see more than 4 – 5 big hand painted hoardings being removed to be replaced by huge flex boards right in front of my eyes. First in this series was a set of pictures of Mohanlal, but there are significant number of other talented heroes and heroines still remaining on our walls and shutters. Here are some of them.
