Malayalam silent classic steals kiss record | Deccan Chronicle

Malayalam silent classic steals kiss record | Deccan Chronicle: "Film historians with a taste for the quirky say that the first lingering liplock of Indian cinema was between Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai in the film Karma, released in1933.
But much before that, actors A.V.P. Menon and Padmini set the screen alight with a full-lipped long-drawn-out kiss in the forgotten Malayalam silent classic Marthanda Varma, based on the historical novel penned by C.V. Raman Pillai.
“I was stunned to see the kiss which will beat films of today,” said Mr P. Gopakumar, movie critic and office-bearer of the Film Lovers Cultural Association, which is conducting a DVD screening of the 90-minute film in the state capital this week."
