Director Pinku Peter on directing his first film Yuvam and waiting optimistically for a year for it to hit theatres
Director Pinku Peter’s debut film, Yuvam, was to have released in March 2020, if not for the pandemic and ensuing lockdown. But Peter, surprisingly, does not complain, “Something good always came my way, which made me count my blessings. Like when we released the teaser a few months back it was such a relief for us. Later, when we released the song, we got a lot of positive feedback. These little things were enough to keep up the spirit,” says Peter.
A pharmacist from Kottayam, Peter’s passion for movies brought him to the film industry. Although he wanted to assist an established filmmaker, he could not, “I was so busy running my business that I didn’t have time. Whatever I have learned is from the filmmakers I have adored over the years. I wrote the script for Yuvam during my spare time.”
