Superstar Mammootty brought to the limelight Trivandrum's Malayalam dialect with Anwar Rasheed's 'Rajamanikyam'. With Ranjith's 'Pranchiyettan' and 'The Saint', he tickled our funny bone yet another time; this time around, in the Thrissur dialect.
Now, it is the turn of actress Kavya Madhavan to familiarise us with yet another one — the Neeleshwaram dialect. In her next outing, Malabar, directed by Ranjith, in which Mammootty and Anoop Menon play prominent roles, Kavya plays a village belle where, for the first time on screen, she's all set to use her hometown's dialect.
Kavya says, like comedians Innocent and Jagathy Sreekumar who popularised the Irinjalakuda and Trivandrum dialects effectively, she wants to popularise the Neeleshwaram dialect. "Actor Suraj Venjaramoodu took the Trivandrum dialect a step further," she points out. "Neeleshwaram is a village in Kasargod, with a population of not more than 17,000 people. I don't think many in Kerala are familiar with their dialect. I want to give it as much publicity as possible in my next movie," says the actress.
The fact that she is familiar with the dialect is one reason why Ranjith approached her for the role, says Kavya. "Everyone knows that I speak the dialect." In fact, actor Dileep is one among her peers who make fun of her and mimics the way she talks. Kavya adds that people from other parts of the state will find it difficult to even understand the typical Neeleshwaram dialect. "It is so different. You can hear it for yourself soon," she signs off.
