19(1)(a) is a 2022 Indian Malayalam-language drama film written and directed by debutant Indhu V.S. It stars Nithya Menen, Vijay Sethupathi, and Indrajith Sukumaran. The film is produced by Anto Joseph and Neeta Pinto. The film flows along like a song with enigmatic frames, befitting music and seamless scripting. A photocopy shop owner’s life takes a U-turn when a revolutionary writer leaves the manuscript of his unpublished novel with her and never returns.
Article 19 (1) (a) of the Indian constitution guarantees the right to freedom of speech and expression for all citizens. But are we all free to do so? Or are we all entangled in different systemic conditions, prejudices, hierarchies and moralities?
Filmmaker Indu VS beautifully tries to provoke the silence in society through her debut film that tells the tale of a woman who has succumbed to her life’s unanimity and responsibilities.
