‘Sara’ on Screen

By Susitha R. Fernando

One of the popular mega tele-series telecast on the miniscreen, ‘Sara’ is made for the big screen will be released in Regal Colombo and other CEL circuit cinemas from this week. Directed and edited by Nishantha Pradeep while production and camera direction are by G. Nandasena, the story is completely different from the teledrama although the main role and some of the leading roles are similar to the miniplay which ended up on October 1.

‘We borrowed the teledrama title because it was a household name as the teledrama was popular among the viewers. But story of the cinematic version is completely different while the cinematic effects are added with cinemascope production,’ said producer G. Nandasena speaking about the film.

‘Sujani was the best selection for Sara and we could not think of anyone else other than her for the main role on the big screen as well,’ he said justifying the selection of talented actress Sujani Menaka.

‘Sara remained as one of the popular teledramas for nearly three years continuously and as soon as it ended up we wanted to release the cinematic version,’ he added. However some of the characters have been changed and some new characters have been created for the film story.

Asela Jayakody, Maureen Charuni, Asanga Perera, Pubudu Chathuranga, Srimal Wedisinghe are some of the other cast members playing in the teledrama. The film was entirely shot in Colombo and its suburbs while some of the locations in Nuwara Eliya had been selected for shooting a song. Janaka Siriwardena and Rohan Waanaguru have joined in the production.
