“… We defeated the flood with sore hands and minds. The world was amazed at the unity and determination of Malayalees. When that story is told in Abhrapali, it’s name is 2018 nothing else!
“This is a dedication… For the souls taken away by the flood… For those who still cry remembering them… For those who had to stand helpless seeing all the efforts of a lifetime fade away… For the army who appeared as saviours… For the fisherman brothers… For the fellowship of Malayalees… For the great word man… The story of the brave Keralites who fought together the flood that drenched the state in 2018. Unveiling the title of the movie Revealing the story of the real heroes. Everyone is a hero.”
