The movie "Celluloid" tells us the story of J.C Daniel, father of Malayalam Cinema and about P.K Rosy, the first heroine in Malayalam. J.C Daniel (Jivanayakam Cyril Daniel Nadar) was the first man to make a film from Kerala. His first movie was "Vigathakumaran" and he himself has directed, produced, photographed, wrote, edited and acted in this movie. The Travancore National Pictures, the first film studio in Kerala was also established by J.C Daniel. For all these he had to suffer lot of hardships in life. Still he did not get any appreciation or recognition for his first silent movie. In short the movie is on Malayalam cinema and talks about the life of J.C Daniel and P.K Rosy.
P.K Rosy was the first Malayalam heroine and her first film was "Vigathakumaran". She belonged to a lower caste and was a coolie. Rosy accidentally became the heroine in this film as during those days there were not many ladies who would take up acting. The movie explains why both J.C Daniel and P.K Rosy did not get any recognition and how hard they have struggled. After watching this movie we all will get to know the pains and sufferings they had overcome. It is worth watching a movie like this as it throws light into the history of Malayalam cinema and also makes us feel proud of having such eminent personalities. It is the hardship and struggles faced by them that gave us the comfort of entertainment we have today.
