Posted in Uncategorized by Tharaka de Alwis on November 22, 2009

Today I went to watch the film: Alimankada: The road from elephant pass which is shown at Regal Cinema, Fort. The film is based on the book: The road from Elephant pass book by Nihal Silva. It’s a two hour film based on an Army officer and woman tiger informant journey together. The director Chandran Rutnam has done a wonderful job to bringing this story into life .

Here is the brief summary of this film

An army officer’s assignment was to pick up a woman informant near Elephant pass and take her to Jaffna. On the day of her capture, Tigers launch a massive attack in the peninsula targeting the camp at Elephant Pass. While they escape from this attack, the woman informant reveals secret about the Tiger leader’s where about on a particular date which she wants to disclose to a high ranking officer in the army Intelligence unit in Colombo. This results in the two individuals to escape together through rebel held Wanni and later, cross the abandoned Wilpattu National Park on foot and over to Army Head Quarters in Colombo .

Captain Wasantha and the activist Kamala face dangers from wild animals and threats by a gang of deserters who make determined and violent efforts to capture the woman. But when he finally reaches Colombo, a shocking revelation confronts Wasantha . He is now compelled to choose between his new friend and his country.
