Are you worried that numerous Malayalam films from the past are no longer accessible on any streaming service? Do not worry. The state government-owned streaming service CSpace, which is getting ready to start, would serve as a location to save and display vintage Malayalam movies.
After the original launch date of November 1 of last year was postponed, the platform is now anticipated to go live in two months. It will also give upcoming filmmakers a platform to display their works.
The app will be released within the next several months, according to Shaji N Karun, head of the Kerala State Film Development Corporation (KSFDC), the organisation behind the platform. Kerala will be the only state with its own OTT platform thanks to CSpace. This will be more than just a streaming service, the director said, adding that KSFDC hopes to maintain our culture in the digital age by conserving both classic and contemporary films through CSpace.
“Malayalis will be able to view movies on CSpace at a reasonable price.” According to Shaji, the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy and KSFDC may take into account restoring damaged films in order to post them on CSpace in the future. The recently completed restoration of Kummatty, a 1979 classic by G. Aravindan, served as inspiration.
N Maya, managing director of KSFDC, reported that the organisation and Chitranjali Studio had written to a number of renowned cinema producers and directors requesting that they register their films with CSpace.
