MT, Madhu @ 90 Photo Exhibition: A visual salute to the legends


Illuminating the lives of two cine legends, M.T Vasudevan Nair and Madhavan Nair, widely known as Madhu, IFFK has launched a photo exhibition conducted by the Chalachithra Academy at Tagore Theatre.

The lyricist and writer Sreekumaran Thampi delivered the inaugural address, sharing his insights into the lives of MT and Madhu. Having collaborated on 11 films with Madhu, Thampi recalled him as someone who defied the prevailing stereotypes in Malayalam cinema. Madhu, eschewing a penchant for stardom and exaggeration, notably took on the negative lead role in the film 'Priya' (1978), a movie he also directed, thereby making a resounding statement against prevailing heroism norms. Thampi expressed the belief that M.T Vasudevan Nair deserves international acclaim for his contributions.

Chalachithra Academy Chairman Ranjith, Secretary C Ajoy, photographer and curator of the exhibition, R Gopalakrishnan, Bose Krishnamachari, KSFDC Managing Director Abdul Malik, Festival Special Curator Golda Sellam, and Madhu’s daughter Uma J Nair were present at the occasion.
