Malayali touch makes Nahid a

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 9 (UNI) When Iranian movie ‘Nahid’ came up for screening at the
Central Stadium today as part of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK), the audience
were seen completely bewitched by the movie and its characters, as if they have forgotten
that they are watching a foreign language film.

For those who wonder what made ‘Nahid’ more enjoyable compared to other films in its
category, the answer lies in the hard work of renowned Director K Sreekuttan, who scripted
the Malayalam subtitles for the film while working in close liaison with Tecgemini Info
Services Pvt. Ltd, a company based in Pattom here.

Speaking on the project, Sreekuttan said he started work on the subtitles on December one as
per the directions of noted filmmaker and IFFK Advisory Committee member Shaji N. Karun
and was able to complete the work in a timely manner.

Once a linguist and time code are made available, movies in one language can be translated into
any other languages with the help of the software developed by Tecgemini, he said.

Suchitra Raman, Chairman and Managing Director, Tecgemini Info Services, said the company
is looking forward to work with IFFK in the coming years. The tech-in frame software can be
employed to present our movies before foreign audience without losing its original character,
and feel, she said, adding, Arun Balraj and Manju Nath were also part of the team, who
successfully completed the project, which was implemented on an experimental basis.

This is for the first time in the history of IFFK that a foreign language film has been screened for
general public with Malayalam sub-titles.

“It had been a challenging task for us to select and present apt Malayalam words for the 105-minute-long movie without departing from its original character,” said Mr Sreekuttan, who is also the Director of
Business Strategy at Tecgemini.
