Today, I had the opportunity to view a rough cut of PINK FAIRY, a children’s movie to be released in June by FATTHAAH. However, it’s directed by his current DP, VISHAAN (aka KANDI).
I wouldn’t want to spoil the storyline, but PINK FAIRY had some good fantasy moments and had a family appeal to it. But I felt that the film could have been much better had FATTHAAH worked on the screenplay at the pre-preproduction stage. After viewing, I gave my feedback and emphasized on areas that could be improved to give PINK FAIRY more strength as a film. Few additional scenes and a reshoot of a very important scene, which now hurts character development of the protagonist, would make PINKY FAIRY a delightful treat for the entire family. FATTHAAH said he would consider my feedbacks.
I am not going to give a review of the film but I am tempted to mention that the performances given by the child actor and her father played by a budding actor look promising. I don’t remember seeing such good chemistry between a child and a father in a Dhivehi movie before. Both of them are two diamonds in the rough, so I thought.
Since I watched a rough cut, all the visual effect shots, music and natural sound were not included. Even then, the film had a charm. I am not sure if I am supposed to write this post on PINK FAIRY, but I hope to God, FATTHAAH wouldn’t mind.
