Everybody born on this earth has dreamt of being an actor or actress. Most don`t do anything about it. Very few try and fail mid way. A privileged few make it and we know them as stars. The film is a tribute to all 3 categories of people.
In the life of everyone who makes the difficult journey of cinema, the first Friday`s Matinee is very important as life changes in an afternoon. It was such a matinee that changed the lives of Najeeb and Savithri.
Najeeb Ali from an extremely conservative middle class musilm family of Malappuram. His dream is to become a film star.Savithri comes from a poor background of interior Palakkad.
She just wants to survive and cinema is something she has never thought of. How both these people find themselves in a movie and how one show of that movie changes their lives forever is what matinee is about
