“There are three main characters in this movie, they are Janaka, Imaya and Madhava,” said Perera.
When asked for a synopsis of the movie, he said that Janaka and Imaya are husband and wife, where a third party gets involved into this unit and creates havoc.
“Madhava, a popular actor, is a family friend, who tries to get involved with Imaya,” said Perera.
Imaya, who deeply respects and loves Janaka, rejects Madhava’s attention and advances and stays focused on her beloved husband.
“However, Janaka, suspects Imaya of being unfaithful to him,” said Perera.
Perera explained the story saying that while Janaka, thinking that Imaya of being unfaithful to him, starts an illicit affair with another woman and the story proceeds with a lot of twists and turns.
According to Perera, who wrote the screenplay, which dates back 20 to 25 years, still believes that the story is relevant to present society as well.
