The upcoming emotional roller coaster ride, Hahdhu has released their second and final music video, Udhuhilamaa from their OST. Watch the song from the link below.

The song focuses on the budding relationship between Yusraa and Ali, played by Azxza and Shiban, respectively. Their chemistry looks impressive. The song builds up from love to lust and then ends with violence as Ali is beaten very brutally. Does he get killed? All this will be answered on 06th September 2017.

The cinematography by Kandi is breathtaking. Also, a highlight is the real-life couple, Ashfa and Theyra who performs this song with real gusto doing a strong appearance in the video. Even their chemistry looks striking.

Hahdhu is less than a week away from its premiere.



‘I was thrilled to watch Dhivehi film, INGILI. It’s a must-see.’ Those were the very words tweeted by Kayano from the popular local band Traphic Jam right after watching a preview of the movie. Kayano’s friend, Naaif who also watched the preview tweeted, ‘Breakaway from local movie stereotypes for sure. Thanks for the screening.’ The pleasure is all ours, I mean the producers.

Yesterday, the producers held a meeting with a very important person who helped the production in many ways. We discussed on premiering the movie in K. Gulhi, the very island where we had the shooting. The producers have decided to donate the ticket sales of the premiere night to the school fund of the island. This is the first time any Dhivehi film is doing such a thing. We thought we couldn’t have wrapped up INGILI (Finger) without the help of the youth of K. Gulhi. And this was the best we can do for them in return.

Director Ravee has started the color grading work of INGILI. He’s aided by CGI genius, Ahmed Shinan. Ravee is set to complete the task in ten days.

Meanwhile the shooting of music video Ingili by Traphic Jam is being planned together with the band. The music video will be featured in the end credits of the film.

As planned the new trailer of INGILI will be released on coming Friday on TVM’s Filmee Udhares. The trailer will be made available on both facebook pages of the program and the movie. And I will be uploading it on youtube and on this blog as well. So stay tuned.



Late yesterday evening, the three producers of INGILI (Finger) met with an entrepreneur at West Park to discuss if he was interested in the theatrical and DVD distribution of the film. Unlike any other meeting we have had so far, this meeting contained numerical figures and calculations, I mean lots of both. I think we must have had spent about 45 or more minutes with the calculators of our smart phones.

To be honest, at first I was lost, thanks to my impressive mathematic skills when I was in school. The teachers ran out of starts and gave me full moons. Anyway, after a lot of explanation, I did start to understand the mathematical work outs. We wrapped up the meeting with this entrepreneur showing strong signs of, well, drumrolls, taking up the distribution. Fingers crossed.

In this meeting we have also agreed to fast track INGILI for a February premiere. Yay! We do have an agreed date but it will be made official somewhere in early February. Finally! But before that, we still have so much work to do. Producer/ director Ravee will be coming up with a schedule to shoot the music video of the song aptly titled ‘INGILI’ performed especially for the film by Traphic Jam, the most popular heavy metal band in Maldives. This music video will be used in the end credits of the film.

A night ago, Ravee invited a popular music couple for a test screening of INGILI. Their feedback has really raised our spirits. They never expected the film to be entertaining. Both of them agreed the film never had a dull moment despite the story taking place in one location with just two actors. The husband who is both a good critique and an ardent Dhivehi film lover said that INGILI is the best Dhivehi film he has seen so far. Whoops! I’m getting lifted from my chair…
