Abhishek Banerjee opens front against corruption in TMC, gave this advice to party leaders

Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) national general secretary and party chief Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee has cautioned party leaders against strong strategy and corruption in West Bengal panchayats. Bengal is going to have rural elections next year. For the past week, Abhishek Banerjee held meetings with the district leadership of Behar, North Dinajpur, Nadia, Malda, South Dinajpur, and Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri districts. TMCis closely monitoring its activities. It is being told that Abhishek is going to hold a similar meeting with the leaders of other districts in the coming days. A party leader has said 'Our party leader Abhishek Banerjee has clearly said that the party will not tolerate the use of any strong strategy and violence to win the panchayat elections.' He has said that if anyone violates the order of the party, strict action will be taken against him. He has asked the party leaders to stay away from squabbles and work as a team. With the emphasis on strengthening the party ahead of the crucial panchayat elections next year, presidents were fielded and many new faces were brought in. A local TMC leader has told that Abhishek Banerjee has emphasized that the party is confident of winning the people's mandate on the back of the development work done in the last 11 years since being in power in Bengal. The party leader said that 'Banerjee has pointed out that situations like the 2018 panchayat elections should not be repeated, as the party had to bear the heavy brunt for those excesses in the 2019 parliamentary elections.'

Mamata Banerjee's ministers want to end governor's post

Kolkata: Sovandeb Chattopadhyay, a minister in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal, wants to end the post of governor of the state. Mamata's minister herself made this suggestion during an event. Sovandeb Chatterjee says the chief justice of the state should take over these responsibilities. Let me tell you that in the past, there have been reports of TMC's differences with former governor and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar. Chattopadhyay , a minister in the Mamata Banerjee government, said he had made such suggestions in the past and several government commissions have also included the suggestion. He saidI think the chief justice of the state should take up the responsibilities of the governor of the state. The Chief Justice can look into the aspects of the law that the Governor takes care of right now. Chatterjee has said that his proposal is not limited to West Bengal alone.'' Shobhandev Chattopadhyay said, This is not just for my state. Since there is a multi-party system in the country, sometimes a particular party is at the Centre and other parties are in power in the state. In such a situation, there are differences between the two parties, which affect development.'' He said I think there is no need to continue these differences. Since the Chief Justice is a non-political person and he knows the law better, he should look after the responsibilities of the Governor.''

Living with a Skoda Karoq: 2 years & 21,000 km update

BHPian Mr.Perera recently shared this with other enthusiasts. With covid restrictions mostly out of the way, the Karoq had spent a good amount of time on the road last year. The car still outshines its quality, fit and finish. No creaking noise, no loose panels, this thing is built like a Tank! There were no major problems or issues during last year. The only 'problem' we faced was the availability of the stock Hankook tyres. The tyre availability issue The Karoq's front tyre had encountered a sidewall burst while I was driving on the infamous Trivandrum-Kochi Highway. The front left tyre fell in a pothole, I was doing around 70kmph and I squeezed all the muscles in my body and heard a loud thud from the front left wheel. Luckily I was able to stop safely. When I got out and checked the wheel I saw the tyre had torn pretty badly. I was unsure if the impact had caused more damage to any other components, so I decided to call the RSA and got the car towed to my service centre. The Art The Artist The car had reached the Skoda service in Trivandrum and they inspected it thoroughly and found out there is no other issue other than the damaged tyre. They told me they will try getting a new tyre and will fit it and give the car. But the next day they informed me that they checked at almost all dealerships in India and this specific Hankook tyre that come in the Karoq is not available anywhere. I too tried searching for this tyre with all major tyre stockists in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata but no one had it. The only option I had was to get a different tyre and put it. But I didn't want to do that since 3 will be Hankooks and one will be some other make. So the frustrated me wrote a mail to Skoda, cc'ing Zac Hollis. Within a day I get a call from my dealer saying that Skoda India has agreed to change all my 4 tyres to a new one and as goodwill, I would need to pay only 30% of the entire price. The total estimate they gave was Rs 48,000 for 4 tyres and I had to pay only Rs 16,000 for 4 new tyres. Kudos to Skoda for their good customer service. They had given 4 new Continental Ultra Contact UC6 tyres. The Conti UC6 seems to be a much more comfort-oriented tyre. The comfort and noise levels seem to be better than the Hankooks. But it doesn't grip as well as the Hankooks. I can hear the tyres screeching and begging for grip on those long winding corners. Low Oil Warning At around 17,000 km the car showed a 'Check oil level warning'. I checked the dipstick and found the oil level was slightly below the lower limit. Took the car to the service and topped up around 300 ml of oil. I realised these engines consume quite a bit of oil, tried getting a 1L bottle of oil from the service but sadly they didn't have the small bottles in stock. Once it comes back in stock I plan to keep one bottle in the car all the time. Second service The second service was done at 18,300 km. Since we had taken the 4-year service plan from Skoda all works were included in that. All normal things like oil, oil filter, air filter and cabin filter were changed this time. When I went to pick up the car they had given me a bill of Rs 635 saying it is the charge for cleaning and lubricating the sunroof mechanism.Other observations:From the beginning, I was not happy with the front wipers as they occasionally made a very disturbing screeching sound. I showed this at the showroom and even after they cleaned the windshield and wiper, still the noise was there. They said there is no warranty on the wiper and I had to change them. The stock wipers cost a whooping 3500 bucks as per my Service Advisor. I later got a set of Blaupunkt wipers for Rs 1100 and boy I am impressed. For one-third, the price the Blaupunkt wipers are super value for money and do a good job during the rains. The multimedia system has some bugs when I connect my phone via Apple Carplay. Sometimes the connection gets lost and then it takes a lot of time to detect my phone again. I have never had this issue in my Octavia when I use the same phone and the same cable. Hope a software update might fix this.The Still So Good thingsThe Interiors - I can still write a long essay about the interior of the car! It is so good that still every time I get in the car it makes me go Wow. Everything is so well put together and looks and feels so fantastic. It is a bit difficult to keep the light-coloured leathers clean, but I always ensure to clean them after every long drive or once every 6 months.Driving feedback - The chassis + suspension is just magic! The car is so well planted at triple-digit speeds and gives immense confidence while driving on the highway. The engine isn't the power unit and I wish it had a bit more power, but once this thing gains speed it just flies!Headlights - The stock headlights are really good and are the best I have ever experienced in any car. Night-time driving is so stress-free and safe. To put things in perspective my Octavia also has full LED headlights like the Karoq. But those are not even half as bright as the ones in the Karoq! In Octavia during a rainy night, driving with the headlights is like driving with no headlights at all!Paint quality - Every car detailer who sees the car has so much to praise about the paint quality. They say the paint quality in Skoda and VW cars is one of the best but the paint quality in the Karoq seems to be so good that it is a detailer's dream.The not so Good thingsThe fear of having a DQ200 gearbox - No matter however good the car is, the fact that the gearbox isn't the reliable one out there still is there behind my head. Haven't heard any Karoq owner getting a gearbox issue till now, but we all have seen the multiple threads here and frustrated owners who have had a tough time due to the dry clutch DQ200 unit. Just praying that nothing such creeps up in the Karoq.The almost white coloured seats - For someone (like me) who loves cleaning their car, having these seats is a good thing. You regularly have a place to spend time cleaning the car. They get dirty very fast. But for the rest big bunch of people it is a pain to keep them clean.Getting basic accessories - The problem of owning a limited run car is the fact that getting basic accessories like car cover, window blinds etc is difficult. I have searched multiple shops and all over Amazon and have never found them. Luckily Creta's car cover was a perfect fit for the Karoq. But I'm still looking for sunblinds.Fuel efficiency - The fuel efficiency from the 1.5L engine isn't the best in my opinion. There are owners here who have got even 19 km/l on highways. But the best I have got on a highway drive is 15 km/l. That too being very easy on the throttle. Its worst during stop-go traffic, I have seen figures like 6 km/l on drives within the city.The best FE I have got to date Also noticed that the car runs much better and smoother on 95 octane petrol. The recommended fuel rating in the Karoq is 95 octane fuel. In the last year, IOC has been aggressively rolling out the XP95. And it's come to a point that it's available in almost all IOC bunks. Initially, I used to fill only normal petrol, but once XP95 came, I stuck to filling XP95 all the time. The change in refinement especially during cold starts is very obvious after that.Overall Impressions after 2 yearsThe Karoq still proves to be a brilliant car. Even after 2 years, it still looks and feels like new. A perfect do-it car with great build quality and interiors. The other day I happened to check out the top-end Kushaq Monte Carlo model which is around 24 lakhs on road. Sadly for that money, the Kushaq lacks the finesse that Skodas are known for. No offence to Kushaq owners, but Skoda should seriously consider bringing back the Karoq in India, at least as a CKD. We really deserve such well-built cars. Some photos of the Czech beauty The Karoq with its younger brother Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

Prophet row: SC grants interim relief to Navika Kumar

Crime A bench of Justices Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli issued notices to the Union government, West Bengal government, and others on Kumar's plea seeking quashing of proceedings initiated against her. PTI Facebook The Supreme Court on Monday, August 8, granted interim protection from arrest to Navika Kumar in connection with FIRs lodged against her over controversial remarks made by former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma on Prophet Mohammad during a TV debate moderated by the news anchor. A bench of Justices Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli issued notices to the Union government, West Bengal government, and others on Kumar's plea seeking quashing of proceedings initiated against her. As an interim measure, no coercive action shall be taken against the petitioner pursuant to the impugned FIRs/complaints or future FIRs/ complaints which may be registered with respect to the broadcast of May 26, the bench said. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Kumar, submitted that debate was going on over Gyanvapi mosque and suddenly one of the speakers said something, and then another retorted. Rohatgi stated that the news anchor did not say anything and several FIRs were lodged against her. She, in fact, doused the fire by saying we have to go by the Constitution, Rohatgi submitted before the court. Senior advocate Menaka Guruswamy, appearing for the West Bengal government, said the first FIR was registered in Kolkata and the FIR in Delhi is not connected with this. At this juncture, Rohatgi said, What is the special interest of the State of West Bengal in this matter? The bench then issued a notice in the matter and sought replies in two weeks. Nupur Sharma's remark on the Prophet during a TV debate had triggered protests across the country and drew sharp reactions from many Gulf countries. The BJP subsequently suspended her from the party. The top court had in July granted interim protection from arrest till August 10 to Sharma in connection with the FIRs/complaints filed against her in several States over her remarks on the Prophet made during a TV debate show. It had also protected her from any coercive action in the FIRs/complaints which may be registered or entertained in the future about the May 26 telecast.

Industrial and Logistics Leasing in India Touched 12.8 Mn Sq. Ft. In H1 2022, Supply Addition Crossed 10 Mn Sq. Ft.

Business Wire India CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd, Indias leading real estate consulting firm, today announced the findings of its latest Industrial & Logistics report, CBRE Industrial & Logistics Figures H1 2022. The report findings revealed that the I&L sector leasing in India stood at 12.8 million sq. ft., recording a dip of about 9% Y-o-Y during the first half of 2022. The space take-up was down by 17% on a half-yearly basis, compared to 15 million sq. ft. recorded in H2 2021, due to a slowdown in supply addition. However, the report highlighted that leasing activity would improve as continued land acquisition and development completions are lined up in H2 2022. City Highlights: Bangalore: Half-yearly leasing outpaced supply; 3PL a key demand driver Small- to medium- sized deals dominated absorption in H1 2022. Key sectors that drove absorption included 3PL (67%), retail (18%) and engineering & manufacturing (5%). Hyderabad: Supply picked up pace; Northern Corridor led space take-up Small-sized deals dominated absorption in H1 2022, led by 3PL players. Rents rose by about 23-25% in Northern Corridor in Hyderabad and by about 5-12% across other micro-markets of Hyderabad. Delhi-NCR led overall leasing in H1 2022; 3PL players drove space take-up Key sectors that drove absorption included 3PL (34%), retail (20%) and engineering & manufacturing (17%). Absorption increased in Kundli / Murthal (NH-1). Mumbai led overall supply in H1 2022, which touched 3.2 mn sq. ft. Large-sized deals dominated absorption in H1 2022, led by space take-up in Bhiwandi (NH-3). Rental values increased by 5-7% in Navi Mumbai Panvel and Taloja in Mumbai Chennai: Absorption outpaced supply 3PL (44%) and engineering & manufacturing (42%) players drove space take-up, followed by auto & ancillary (11%). Absorption increased in Western Corridor II and Northern Corridor. Punes 3PL players drove absorption in H1 2022 Key sectors driving absorption included 3PL (73%), electronics & electricals (25%) and e-commerce (2%). Rents rose by 8-10% in Chakan - Talegaon in Pune, due to sustained demand for investment-grade assets. Kolkata: Significant uptick witnessed in both supply and leasing Small- to medium-sized deals dominated absorption in H1 2022, led by space take-up along NH-6. Key sectors that drove absorption included retail (33%), engineering & manufacturing (22%) and electronics & electricals (16%). Ahmedabad: Supply and leasing improved in H1 2022 Large-sized transactions dominated absorption in H1 2022, led by deals concluded in Changodar. Key sectors that drove absorption included engineering & manufacturing (51%), followed by auto & ancillary (27%) and 3PL (22%). Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, and Bangalore dominated leasing activity; these cities accounted for more than half of the overall space take-up. During H1 2022, 3PL players continued to drive the leasing activity with a share of 46% in the overall transaction activity, registering an increase of 10% Y-o-Y. Demand from stakeholders across the supply chain, including wholesalers, retailers and e-commerce players on account of holding forthcoming higher safety-stock, led to increased leasing activity by 3PL players. Other major leaders of leasing activity were occupiers from engineering & manufacturing (17%, up by 6%), followed by retail (13%), and e-commerce (6%). During H1 2022, supply addition decreased by about 32%, compared to 15 million sq. ft of project completions in H2 2021. Mumbai topped the supply addition, followed by Kolkata, together accounting for about half of the project completions. The report pointed out that the share of medium-sized (50,000 100,000 sq. ft.) and large-sized (more than 100,000 sq. ft.) transactions increased on a half-yearly basis by 3% and 7% respectively. However, the share of small-sized transactions (less than 50,000 sq. ft.) declined to 36% as compared to 47% in H2 2021. Delhi-NCR and Mumbai dominated large-sized deal closures . These cities together accounted for about 41% of large-sized deals. From a sectoral perspective, 3PL followed by engineering & manufacturing companies drove large-sized deal closures with a total share of more than 60%. Further, led by sustained demand for investment-grade assets, rental values increased in select micro-markets of Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai and Delhi-NCR during H1 2022. Instances of key investments in the I&L sector during H1 2022 included Ascendas India Trusts investment of about USD 28 million in Arshiya Groups asset in Mumbai, and another USD 28 million in Casagrands asset in Chennai. Overall, the I&L sector attracted about USD 144 million across greenfield and brownfield assets from global and domestic players during H1 2022. Anshuman Magazine, Chairman & CEO - India, South-East Asia, Middle East & Africa, CBRE, said , While global supply chain pressures are easing, we anticipate occupiers to continue to follow just-in-case strategies alongside just-in-time ones to maintain agility. Increased focus on upgradation / expansion opportunities in tier I cities; new market penetration in lower tier cities and extension of local distribution networks in emerging logistics hubs are expected to drive leasing in the future. Ram Chandnani, Managing Director, Advisory & Transactions Services, CBRE India, said , Focus on operational efficiencies could lead to growth in flight-to-quality leasing. In line with the demand, we anticipate development completions by organized players to increase in the coming quarters. Investment activity is expected to continue from global and local players, with both greenfield and brownfield acquisitions remaining attractive. Outlook & Trends - 2022 Leasing sentiments to remain positive : Overall leasing in 2022 expected to touch 28-32 million sq. ft., with a growth of up to 12% Y-o-Y. Space take-up would be led by continued expansion of 3PL, e-commerce, engineering & manufacturing, retail and FMCG firms. Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Mumbai and Chennai would continue to drive transaction activity, while markets including Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Pune are expected to witness increased momentum of leasing activity. Supply addition to pick up pace: As supply chain bottlenecks have started to ease, project completions are expected to improve in H2 2022. Overall, about 25-28 million sq. ft. of new warehouses are estimated to become operational in 2022, registering a growth of up to 12% Y-o-Y. Supply addition is expected to be dominated by Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Chennai and Bangalore. Moving closer to key nodes: Occupiers are likely to continue to lease more space to cut down on transportation costs. E-commerce and 3PL players would thus prefer to take up space closer to consumer hubs. Moreover, 3PL occupiers dealing with cargo handling would focus on securing warehouses closer to key transportation nodes. Similarly, engineering and manufacturing players are likely to prefer warehouses in proximity to industrial hubs. Labour-saving building technologies to rise: Occupiers and developers are likely to adopt a broad range of advancement automations with the support of Big Data analytics, sensors and Internet of Things (IoT)-powered technologies to reduce labour dependencies. New-age supply to accommodate vertical storage : Warehousing facilities with features such as high ceilings to accommodate automated stacking systems, sufficient loading / unloading zones and power back-up provisions are likely to gain more traction. Rental growth to continue: Sustained growth in rentals across the cities is expected, owing to increased space take-up and addition of investment-grade supply. Rental growth in key micro-markets across cities would continue in H2 2022, especially, in investment-grade, tech-enabled and strategically located assets. About CBRE Group, Inc. CBRE Group, Inc.

1998 Hindustan Ambassador: A complete restoration back to original spec

BHPian Faith Aby recently shared this with other enthusiasts. Hi petrol heads, So this is my very first forum thread or post. I was wondering what to start with, so I chose to make a project related post as I've seen many forums related to it and many users like it too. Here's my first post on the restoration project of a new toy which was brought by one of our customers. The toy is a 1998 model Ambassador swapped with an original carburetted Nova 1500cc 4cyl diesel engine. The customer basically had it parked at a workshop at Kottayam, Kerala. Sadly, it stood there for almost 3-4 years (no pics of before restoration). The climatic conditions and the age has hit it so hard. It had lots of work to be done and lots to be spent. The customer had enough funds and interest in bringing back this beauty to life. He approached us two months back saying that somebody has to drive it from KL to BLR as he planned to give it to us for the restoration. My dad found it the right opportunity to go to KL as he needed parts and spares for his Landmaster, sierra and also various other reasons. The time was convenient. My dad and his friend left for Kerala. The story of the car over there was dreaded and pretty painful. It was rusted and jammed. But the mechanic somehow managed to make it run, as it was in a shelter and luckily the garage owner used to start it once in a month. But unfortunately the car only did 40kmph max and the brake cylinders were faulty and the car had to be cranked directly from the battery to starter. But somehow with God's grace and the heart of that machine to come back to life didn't make it stop anywhere and create issues, except for fuel and cooling. They brought that beauty back to BLR in running condition.They took turns while the other one was tired. By the time she was here, she was hot and thirsty and ready to get restored and we couldn't wait to lay our hands on it. The project had already started while I was out for educational reasons. So all the pictures are the ones which I've taken after the project started. When I came back, the car's engine work had started. The engine was detached from the car and was ready to get rebuilt. The customer wanted us not to hurry it up as it may end up in faults. We did each work patiently and without stress. Here is the picture of its bypass surgery: It had a 1996 Ambassador Nova diesel engine with a 5-speed Isuzu transmission. The engine and transmission didn't match well. It didn't run properly, and moreover it grinded the clutch a lot. The desired performance wasn't received. But now the customer regrets and has somehow managed to get an original ISZ1800 engine which is in the OEM spec and can cope up with the gearbox. He has brought a 1998 Isuzu Peugeot engine which needed new pistons, rings, oil seals, bearings, valves, re-boring and cylinder alignment. Here's the pic of the old engine. That's the gearbox next to it. The old engine was not strong enough for a rebuild. The customer didn't experience much refinement and it also gave him approx. 5-6 kmpl. So he decided to change the whole setup and make it original, refined, silent with no extra mods. He has planned greater restoration plans for this car and is taking opinions and concerns from my dad and a fellow technician who who used to work at the HM manufacturing plant in his good old days. We have planned to restore it back to mint condition and back to the old showroom look which he had in 1998. But a bit different in appearance. Main focus is on making it run like a daily drive and having it not too fancy. For now, the engine work is taking place. We are planning to start the under body and running board works as the body is free. The engine work is being done neatly and precisely by our mechanic who is an expert in engine rebuilding. He has 25 years experience in laying hands on various beauties and machines. He has rebuilt Gallardo engines and various other vintage toys. I'm not disclosing all the facts in one single post. Lots more to come. But it will take time. But I'm damn sure its worth the wait. Will be the posting next update of project very soon. Stay tuned. Here's what BHPian anjan_c2007 had to say on the matter:Very proud to read of a comparatively newer Ambassador getting restored. The earlier engine swap of the HM Stride/BMC 1489 cc/ 37 bhp diesel by the owner it is apparent was purely for fuel economy reasons and the five speed gearbox mating with the archaic diesel is a bit indigestible. The ISZ 1800 (1817cc/ OHC/75 PS @ 5000 rpm/ 130 Nm @ 3000 rpm) petrol engine will go ideally with the 5-speed gearbox. I remember a road test of this car in Auto India magazine from 1992, where it said that then new petrol Isuzu engine gives the car a wolf in sheep's clothing like appearance. It gave a new lease of life to this ageing design during those years. The ISZ 1800 engine was sourced by HM since around 1985-86 but only restricted for VVIP cars after Mrs Indira Gandhi, our PM was assassinated in 1984. The new security blue book required armour plated cars with bullet proof glasses for the VVIP's. The extra mass added required a newer power plant as the older 1489 cc/ 55 bhp/ BMC B-Series engine with its ancient design could not comply and did not fit into the scenario. It was only in 1992 that this new engine was offered for sale to the general public. Fullbore Motors, UK had imported quite many examples into the U.K. sprucing these up for their local market purely for nostalgic reasons. Fortunately, many of these still survive in the U.K. and are chiefly used as wedding cars that are available on hire. But despite the upgraded engine and gearbox in 1992, HM's workmanship continued to remain poor to pathetic and the body panels coming loose or rattling, metal rusting, poor quality of plastics and poor fit and finish marred the overall outlook for the buyers of this car, when newer technology was being introduced by peers into our market. The car in question is just 24 years old, but was subjected to apathy lately and was located somewhere nearer to the sea coast where the climatic factors and neglect could have taken their toll on it. The car is iconic for India and examples are permanently disappearing from all over. The recent West Bengal NGT order to scrap all private and commercial 15 year or older cars, trucks and buses etc, will take a very, very heavy toll on the Ambassador population in its heartland, that was once the Ambassador capital of India. So much so, that the last Ambassador taxi in Kolkata may get scrapped by 2029 ! My best wishes for the restoration project.Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

Amazon Prime Video to stream Fahadh Faasil starrer survival thriller Malayankunju on THIS date

Kolkata: Prime Video on Monday announced the exclusive premiere of the Malayalam survival thriller Malayankunju. Directed by Sajimon Prabhakar, the film features Fahadh Faasil, Rajisha Vijayan and Indrans in pivotal roles. Malayankunju is an emotional story of survival, when a man gets trapped in a landslide. Written by Mahesh Narayanan, the film also marks the comeback of AR Rahman to Mollywood after about three decades. Prime Video members in India and across 240 countries and territories can watch the film starting August 11. Malayankunju follows the journey of Ani (Fahad), who is an ill-tempered electronics technician leading a quiet life with his mother. His daily routines are disrupted when his next door neighbours newborn baby stirs up undesirable memories from his past. A person with many shades, Anils connection with the baby and his struggles to survive under the rubble of an intense landslide forms the crux of the narrative. Malayankunju is Fahads first big release after the huge success of Vikram. The film has been shot 40 feet under the ground level and has surreal sequences that lift a usual survival story to a different level. Malayankunju is one of the toughest films that I have shot so far. The second half of the film is set 40 feet underground, so we had to create a set where we had to crouch and crawl, Fahadh Faasil continues, Malayalam cinema hasnt seen a film like this in recent times and I am glad that the audiences and critics have appreciated our efforts. Our industry has been loved by a global audience and we are excited for my fourth collaboration with Prime Video after CU Soon, Joji and Malik. I look forward to Malayankunji reaching out to a vast audience through this streaming platform and cant wait to hear from a new set of audience. Sajimon Prabhakar, on his part, adds, Malayankunju is a riveting story and Fahadh is just brilliant in it. The film follows the journey of a man and how he gets impacted when nature meddles with his life. The primary challenge for the crew was to create a set that would emulate subterranean space and the team worked day and night to create a 40-foot set in a way that only allowed space for one person to move around, combined with an actual location to make it look seamless. Despite the tough circumstances, Fahadh gave a wonderful performance which has been applauded by cinephiles. Now we are looking forward to understanding how audiences worldwide react to this gripping thriller. (UNI)
