Actress Anumol is on an experiment mode of late. Having played a prostitute in Shambu Purushotham's latest sex comedy movie, the actress has signed up for Chayilyam, a woman-centric film in which she plays Gouri, a widow. Directed by theatre artiste Manoj Kana, the movie traces the story of Gouri. "After the death of her husband, Gouri is mentally disturbed.
However, people think that she is possessed by the Gods. While Gouri just wants to spend the rest of her life taking care of her son, she is forced by society to be a goddess. She is also made to wear the Theyyam costume and perform the Devakoothu Theyyam, which is the only Theyyam that can be performed by a woman. Gouri is made to fast for 41 days as part of the rituals. What transpires within the 41 days form the plot," says Anumol.
