The 6th edition of the “Oramiyil Ragini” tribute event, organised with the dual purpose of keeping the actor’s memories alive and to spread awareness on Breast Cancer will be held this year on Saturday, 26 December 2015.
The Chitramela Film Quiz, an annual ‘institution’ of sorts as far as cultural events elated to Malayalam Cinema goes, had held its 8th edition at the GV HSS Nadakkavu, Kozhikode on Sunday, 8th June, 2014 at 4 pm – with www.m3db.com as their official database and knowledge partner for the event.
The most popular Film Quiz on Malayalam cinema is back. A part of the 9th edition of Reverberates, the event will be hosted by Quiz Master Rajesh Mohanan ( a familiar face in these parts, if I may add and gloat ) and will be held at Malabar Christian College, Kozhikode, on June 6, 2015 from 11.30 am onwards.

The 8th edition of Reverberates is here, which means the hugely popular, or at the risk of saying, the most popular Film Quiz on Malayalam cinema is back.

After a two-month hiatus, the adda has been dusted, mopped and spruced up – in a way, the sprucing up bit was badly needed, to keep in tune with the times.
Here is how the “sprucing up” has manifested in terms of Content and Design.
This 16th marks the 25th year of passing of Malayalam cinema’s only Evergreen Hero, and the Kozhikode-based Prem Nazir Samskarika Vedhi, as with the previous year is organising a 3-day extended tribute to the actor.
Maybe a quarter century is an auspicious-enough number for the powers-that-be, that there has been celebrations galore announced by the state machinery to remember Prem Nazir. Minister for Culture, KC Joseph has announced that the government is still “searching” for a suitable location in Thiruvanathapuram to erect a life-size statue of the actor.
The Kerala government has also announced the ‘Prem Sruthi-2014‘, a tribute jointly organised by the Department of Culture, Kerala Film Development Corporation, Malayalam Cine Technicians Association, Association of Malayalam Movie Artists, Film Employees Federation of Kerala, Film Chamber and the Prem Nazir Foundation.
Coming back to the Prem Nazir Samskarika Vedi’s 3-day long tribute that kicks off on January 16, 2014, this year’s program include felicitating Director Sasikumar and actor Sudheesh, who completes 25 years in movies this year, who also hails from Kozhikode.
The last three months have been a whirlwind of activity, which was a natural culmination of another 5 months of extensive collation and sorting of archival material, digital assets and print to create the most extensive, exhaustive and engage tribute online, for an actor we have revered ( yes, I use that word after a lot of deliberation) onscreen – Bharat Gopy.

The “Ormayil Ragini” program, an audio-visual exhibition that celebrates the life and times of Ragini, from the legendary Travancore Sisters is holding its 2013 edition at Ernakulam. To be held on 14 -14th September 2013, as a two-day program, it also combines an awareness initiative on Breast Cancer that brutally cut short Ragini’s life, with talks on the causes and care of the medical condition.
