Kerala Film History Forgets Connection With Thrissur Pooram

This could have been taken as the opportune moment to commemorate the real life saga of Joseph and his bioscope. It was the first definitive attempt to make the medium available for the vox populi,” says Anil Thomas, general secretary of the Kerala Film Chamber of Commerce.

Both, film and Pooram lovers will have reason to rejoice if the Kerala Film Development Corporation takes a cue from this and pays tributes to Varunni Joseph, he adds. But Pooram, whose exhibition opened on Monday and reached a milestone — its 50th year — appears to have been sidelined.

Way back in 1907, at the Pooram, the first cinema was exhibited as part of the celebrations and the person responsible for this was Kattukaran Varunni Joseph, founder of Jos Theatre. The importance of being Varunni Joseph gathers relevance in the light of the latest flick, ‘Celluloid’, by Kamal which essayed the life of J.C. Daniel, the father of Malayalam cinema.
