Rosa Mal Sayanaya to lull movie buffs
Life is full of the unexpected. You never know what it has in store
for you. Even if you soothe your feelings that you have played your
cards right and believe that success and happiness are in store for you,
you never foresee the stormy clouds gathering in the horizons.
Nishantha de Alwis’ latest movie project, Rosa Mal Sayanaya embodies
this message when we see a young girl entering the bliss of married
life. Yet, the opening of the movie suggests something which is not
quite right in her life. Mystery and strangers cloud her mind as the
story unravels as a flashback.

to terms with her husband’s strange lifestyle shatter once she meets
Roshan, a young painter who sees unnatural beauty within the young
The two soon meet and a relationship forms between the pair as Roshan
invites Rosy to pose for a painting. Rosy agrees and ultimately they
fall in love. However Malan is determined to keep Rosy and eventually
his deep, dark secret is uncovered. What will the fate of the lovers be?
What is the secret which Malan is so desperately trying to hide?
