Story

Piyal.  Twenty three years old. Male

Tormented by incidents associated with his mother, relives the same dream/nightmare.  Again and again. 
As his family gradually forgets his mother Piyal leaves them and comes to the city. He rents an old stable converted into an apartment that adjoins a house in the residential part within an old Dutch Fort close to the sea.  
That is all he can afford given financial constraints. 
 
A could rents out the main house with which Piyal’s meager residence shares a thin wall. Thanks to a window, located high on this wall, Piyal becomes privy to the most intimate elements of their lives.   
 
Amanda.  Thirty two years old.  Piyal’s neighbour. At the beginning she is just a woman who feeds his fantasies.  Later, through incident and conversation, Piyal begins to see and seek in her that which his mother no longer provides.  
 
Nadee. Amanda’s lover.  
Amanda’s worth, in his eyes, declines gradually from the moment he learns that she is a cancer patient.  
 
This receives a further impetus when she suffers a miscarriage and loses his child.  Amanda cannot suffer Nadee’s selfishness any longer and announces that she is leaving Sri Lanka in order to receive treatment.  
 
Amanda has second thoughts while waiting to board her flight and finally calls Piyal and goes with him to her father’s house, now abandoned and in a sad state 
of neglect and disrepair. 
 
Even as her physical value depreciates, Amanda, realizing that Piyal’s fascination with her includes a strong sexual component, decides to release him from this. She seduces him.  
 
He then realizes that she is a cancer patient and had lost a breast to the disease. He is filled with remorse. 
 
Convinced that this was the most vile act he had thus far committed, Piyal’s penitence takes the form of utmost commitment to taking care of Amanda.  
He moves with her with complete equanimity towards the rendezvous with death. 
 
Nadee realizes that Piyal has attended to everything which he ought to have done. He has to live with that knowledge and consequently suffer.  
We are left with the image of Piyal resting his head on the lap of a half naked woman resolved to the execution of the most natural of laws, death, in the manner of an invitation to expiate all unresolved and unbearable memories in a similar manner.

This movie was an utter waste of time. I was taken by the Trailor and the advertisements so went ahead and watched. I am a film lover and I have studied film. The director and the camera has done justice but so many mistakes in the background. for example: Piyal (when visited by Nadee) who is washing clothes of Ama is standing in front of her soaked bra and panty! The one breast-cancer patient does NOT require underwear, specially when she is dying at the hospital! From the beggining soo many obvious mistakes in the ART department which the director should have looked through! The girl can not act but director has made her act by making her speak less and show very little facial expressions. I doubt whether the actors were of any good but since they hardly did anything it did not get noticed. It's funny when old guy ONLY slaps the young man ONCE! after discovering he has been perverting on their sex life; its abnormal and hillarious! All in all... I wish I spent my money on a better movie. Waste of time!

This is a good film in my view. different story and a different theme to Sri Lankan cinema. And also I appreciate the music through out the movie and its matching with the movie.Nadeeka's acting is little bit unnatural. Other than that a great movie with a nice story.
