A romantic tale Challenges
Veteran filmmaker Udayakantha Warnasuriya’s latest cinematic creation ‘Challenges’ is all set to unspool in the EAP circuit after ‘Sinhawalokanaya’ that’s being screened now.
The movie that introduces a large number of new faces to the Sinhala cinema is woven around an entertaining storyline involving the youth.
Promising young actress Sheshadri Priyasad makes her film debut in the movie bringing new hope while she is cast opposite equally gifted actors Roshan Ranawana and Pubudu Chathuranga.
The widescreen film with DTS sounds is centred on the romantic tale of Ranuk and Sharanya.
