With the parish priest of Our Lady of Fathima Church, Perampalli Fr Romeo Lewis lighting the ceremonial lamp to mark the occasion. He also blessed and wished success to the entire film crew.
In his inaugural address, Fr Romeo said, “A new wave is coming in film industry for Konkani movies. The production teams of all films have been playing their parts in increasing the richness of Konkani language. Kilms will keep Konkani culture alive and thriving. ‘Sophiya’ promotes the local culture and brings a degree of happiness. Producing films in local language is not easy since it has limited audience and market. In this regard, producer Janet Noronha has done a remarkable job taking all risks for promoting Konkani language.
The movie was released for the first time at Prabath theatre in Mangaluru on May 12, 2017. It is running successfully in all theatres in Mangaluru, Moodibidri and Karkala.
