It's April 1st and time for IOK's online release!
Sure there was not much drama in it like the Mausams Premiere last year, but man, the response to the film was as overwhelming! I was getting calls and messages and emails the whole day and several of my wonderful friends and friends' friends shared, liked, commented on the film! The response was very much skewed towards being positive and encouraging and by the end ofthe day we crossed 1000 views, which was a lot more than what i had expected for a 25 min long Mallu film! Needless to say, I felt super duper happy!
But the day was awesome not just because of IOK!
I also had two visitors and I had a great time chatting and spending time with them!
One was my long time dear friend and IOK co-actor. He had been out of town for the longest time and even missed the IOK premiere at Singapore Malayalaee Association last month. So now that he is in town for just a couple of days, we decided to catch up. He came over with a pack of Ferrero Rocher, and over Mallu lunch by mom, Mallu snacks and Ferrero Rocher, we chatted away for about 5 hours straight!
Second visitor was a junior of mine from school. He is doing his phD in US and is in Singpore for a few months as part of a project. We didn't really know each other in school, but given that we were in touch via Facebook recently, he was kind enough to drop by! And he actually got me an orchid bouquet and also a miniature film camera shaped keychain! How sweet was that! I spent a couple of hours chatting with him too, together with the first friend and it was really nice meeting him and chatting with him!
So yes, it was an incredibly lovely Sunday - IOK release and reactions and a whole day of good conversation!
