Machan - Sinhala Movie

Machan is a great Sinhala movie by Uberto Pasolini .Now its screening in Sri Lanka. Machan, unlike recent movie like Aba does not ride on the popular war mania. It retells the embarrassing true story of the entire Sri Lanka’s urban poverty. This is a perfect movie you have to watch but has a minor faults. Machan released with the music of Jayasri where six of their songs have been used.

Director Uberto Pasolini entered the film industry in the international marketing and distribution departments of 20th Century Fox before joining David Puttnam's Enigma Films in the early 1980s. His first work for Puttnam was serving as a location scout on such films as Roland Joffe's "The Killing Fields" (1984), "The Frog Prince" (1985) and Joffe's "The Mission" (1986).
