Thiruvananthapuram: Obviously, they are becoming an entertainment channel for the tiring long queues. At IFFK, we can see many long chains of people waiting for entries to the theatres to watch their movies of interest. At times many people at the back end may not be able to access the ticket. Now a group of youngsters are there to entertain themselves and to make others in the queue relaxed.
Eighteen young bloods pursuing MCJ under Kannur University are those entertainers. When they become tired of standing in queues they start singing in a rhythm, which creates a new energy for the whole mass on the premises. Four among them are girls. Sumesh from Neeleshwaram leads the team. Others in the team include Vipul, Jithin, Nithin, Swaroop, Athira, Navitha, Arshika, Aparna, Jipson, and Shabeer.
They sing Malayalam folk, revolutionary and drama songs. They are part of a 30-member team, called Punarjani Nattusangeetham, which conducts musical programmes in different schools of Kannur and Kasargode districts.
This group has become an inevitable part of 20th IFFK with people waiting for them to start the programme.
