Prasanna Vithanage’s Oba Nathuwa Oba Ekka (With You Without You) is a simple story that is wound around the most complex of circumstances. Man meets woman, finds her attractive, pursues her, marries her, but eventually, love is never enough to satiate the needs of a hungry soul that seeks answers. The film highlights the scars of the Civil War in Sri Lanka that lasted 30 years and left many homes and people shattered at the end of it. Having witnessed this carnage from very close quarters, the two characters, SarathSiri and Selvi, emerge. A twist of fate brings the two star-crossed lovers together. As the story unfolds, you find how the two, without speaking too much can communicate their emotions effectively. One could easily summarize that theirs was a relationship of convenience that became a much deeper bond as time passed.
