Sandaluthalayen Eha Truth beyond boundaries
It is a tale of bitter truth. A gamble for survival. There was once a
belief that an event does not take place without a reason. Peacemakers
like Mahatma Gandhi had once walked this earth but similarly so had
rebels and tyrants like Hitler, bin Laden and Prabakaran.
Sandaluthalayen Eha is scripted, produced and directed by Gamini
Pushpakumara who had also penned the lyrics. The story is centred on a
young man, a graduate, who is falsely accused of being a terrorist.
Though all charges are cleared he finds that the attitude of the society
had changed during his period he had been imprisoned.

Jagath and G.R. Perera
According to Pushpakumara his film explores the fact that the most
qualified people are not given the suitable position in life. It is only
those who achieve status through bribery, chicanery and corruption who
reap the benefits in life and had become the root from which all the
social issues have erupted.
Another significant fact is that male actors had been caste for the
film. This will be the first film in local and international history
that does not include female roles.
