33 years of ‘Akkare’!

Akkare ‘was my dad’s short story, first published in Mathrubhumi in 1983, the year when Kapil’s Devils brought home our first Cricket World cup.

In 1984 Akkare hit the screens, directed by K N Sasidharan, starring Bharat Gopi, Mohan Lal, Mammooty and Nedumudi Venu. Akkare was selected at the Indian Panorama.

When I go through the story now, I feel the thread is still relevant.
