ï¿½Itï¿½s matter of gratitudeï¿½ Glittering Hollywood tribute to Roy-Sumana to Itï¿½s a Matter of Love by Roy de Silva
The world premiere of the latest Sri Lankan English movie ï¿½Itï¿½s a Matter of Loveï¿½ directed by veteran actor and filmmaker Roy de Silva, ably supported by his star wife Sumana Amerasinghe was recently held in Los Angeles amidst a large and distinguished gathering.
This was the first time that a Sri Lankan movie was premiered in the US and the feedback has been excellent according to sources in Los Angeles.
The highpoint of the series of events held in connection with the month-long US tour of veteran artistes Roy and Sumana came at the Vista Theatre in Los Angeles on January 15 when the popular, veteran duo were felicitated at a glittering ceremony attended by distinguished guests and the Sri Lankan community living in the US. The event was meticulously organized by none other than US-based Keith Ranga who had been introduced to the cinema by Roy de Silva.
The felicitation awards and certificates were presented to the star couple by Jeff M. Goonewardena ï¿½ (Consul General of Sri Lanka to the Western States of USA, Chief coordinator to the President of Sri Lanka on USA, Mayor to City of Oceanside, California, and Mayor to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA) prior to the screening of the movie ï¿½Itï¿½s a Matter of Loveï¿½ which came for praise from all quarters.
ï¿½This is indeed a memorable milestone in our lives. Keith Ranga had organized the event and given ample publicity resulting in the Vista Theatre almost overflowing with Sri Lankan and US filmgoers. We also had a discussion with Warner Bros. which was keen about the purchase of our film which came for praise, especially regarding the quality of English in the script and the capabilities of the artistes. I am grateful to Praveen Jayaratne for doing a wonderful job by processing the film in Sri Lanka. Similar events were held in other cities and we were invited again to make a film using young talent in the US,ï¿½ Roy de Silva told Reel Life.
ï¿½Itï¿½s a Matter of Loveï¿½ is the second part of Royï¿½s previous English movie ï¿½Itï¿½s a Matter of Timeï¿½
The romantic movie with a passionate storyline features Saranga Dissasekara and Anarkalli Aakarssha as teenage lovers together with senior artistes Iranganie Serasinghe, Lucky Dias, Rosy Senanayake, Vijaya Nandasiri, Ronnie Leitch, Corrine Almeida, Nehara Peiris and others including Ronnie Leitchï¿½s daughter Keshiya Leitch who makes an outstanding debut performance in the movie.
The romance, the comedy and the intrigue behind Roy de Silvaï¿½s 1990s hit, ï¿½Itï¿½s a Matter of Timeï¿½ will be revived with its sequel, `Itï¿½s a Matter of Loveï¿½, which had begun shooting these days in locations in the city.
`Itï¿½s a Matter of Loveï¿½ stars Anarkali and Saranga Dissasekara in the lead with Lucky Dias and Vijaya Nandasiri in supporting roles. Rosy Senanayake, who took up one of the leads opposite Kamal Addaraarachchi, Sangeetha Weeraratne and Gamini Fonseka in `Itï¿½s a Matter of Timeï¿½, will continue the part in the sequel.
Irangani Serasinghe, Ronnie Leitch, Coreen Almeida and Mahinda Pathirage take up significant roles while the movie introduces talented actors Nehara Peiris, Keshiya Amanda, Menaka Maduwanthie, Sudharshana Bandara and Gloria Hewspatha to cinema.
The story is based on a series of incidents focusing on the themes of youth romance and trustworthiness.
Malan is the only son of Dhanawardana, a wealthy businessman who harbours the dream of seeing his son taking over the reins of his business empire.
Therefore he decides to send his son to America for further studies and training. However, he has yet to learn that his son is engaged in a serious relationship with Natasha, a 17 year old lass, the daughter of Rossie.
Twice widowed Rossie is unaware that Malan refuses to leave the country due to his commitment towards Natasha. Dharmawardana is furious after discovering facts about the lovers and threatens to send away Malan by force.
Meanwhile, the idea of a marriage at such a young age does not appeal to Natasha. More drama unfolds as clashes between parents and lovers take center stage. As signs of the dust settling down finally comes in view Natasha is gripped with a sudden suspicion. She suspects that there is a love affair between her best friend Chathuri and Malan.
ï¿½Itï¿½s a `Matter of Loveï¿½ is my second English movie as `Itï¿½s a Matter of Timeï¿½ was the first. I wanted to shoot a sequel to the first movie some time back but was unable to find an actress for the main roleï¿½.

He also said that a number of flashback scenes taken from `Itï¿½s a Matter of Timeï¿½ will be included in his latest project.
