The COVID-19 lockdown has taken charge. Every single person is required to be inside. Nobody could go anywhere. Those who lived everyday shuttled from work to home and vice versa are confined within their homes.
The movie is about a 25-year-old girl, Aaru, who explores the underlying thrusts, senses, and insinuations of her psyche during the lockdown period. She finds comfort in the presence of her friend. They find bliss in their deep conversations and verbal expeditions, but gradually she is ascertained with a life-changing perception about herself. And she can’t process this apprehension. INSIDE is about how Aaru sorts that realization, or her life for that matter.
Jinesh V S is an Indian journalist, dramatist, script writer, and director from Kochi, Kerala. Jinesh made his debut as a director with the Malayalam short movie Aviramam (2019).
He worked as an assistant director in Celebrations Theatre, a reputed theatre group from Kerala. He has won the screenplay writing competition conducted by Kerala State Chalachithra Academy for the screenplay ‘Akam (inside)‘.
The idea of Akam (Inside) was simple and personal to me. Everyone has a comfort zone in life, for Some people it’s solitude. There they dream and write their own stories, create their world, they are confident in those zones. The COVID-19 lockdown was something similar. When forced to stay inside, it was not a bad thing for every one of us, some people liked it. They felt comfortable. But enjoying the solitude and fearing the outer world and society is different. No one should fear society for who they are. These thoughts lead to the plot of Akam. It is about a girl who finds happiness in solitude because the real world frightens her, and it’s trying to shows how she overcomes the fear of being herself and face the world with a smile.
