Director J. Vadivel says forthcoming Tamil thriller Kallappadam, a story about how first-timers attempt and make a movie, is a tribute to native art form Koothu, which is nearly forgotten.
Its about the battle of a bunch of pals who set out to make their first movie. Through this story, we are highlighting the almost forgotten art form Koothu and our movie is a homage to it, Vadivel told IANS.
Considering that this is my very first movie, I desired to do something different. I selected Koothu as the style of my movie because I highly feel it has actually lost its prominence given that the beginning of movie theater. Weve attempted to focus on the art kind and it has been dealt with commercially, he said.
The homage has been paid through a song and Vadivel feels it will certainly strike a chord with the audience.
Vadivel plays himself in the movie, while his cinematographer Santhosh, music composer K and editor Gaugin repeat their own functions.
We decided to play our respective roles. To make the movie they desire, these characters are required to do something from the sheer need, he said.
A parallel story about the downfall of an effective starlet likewise keeps up the major story. Lakshmi Priyaa has played this function. To obtain back in the league, shes forced to do something bad. Exactly what happens when these two parallely running stories cross paths (types the rest of the story), he added.
Vadivel says although the actions of Lakshmis character in the movie may appear bad, but she isn’t really essaying an unfavorable function.
Lakshmi is forced to react to the situation she enters the film, said Vadivel, and added that the story was motivated by events that happened around him.
This is not about the struggle in the market to make my first movie. Its about how movie theater has actually taken control of other art forms like koothu. Villages that made use of to give choice to koothu performances now favour movie theater numbers, he stated.
Heaping praise on his team, Vadivel said everyone had multiple roles to play in the film.
All the lead stars had multiple functions to play. Santhosh for circumstances had to make sure everything is recorded completely behind the camera and afterwards come prior to it to act. Gaugin would let us know where to edit a shot and K would inform us about the suitable score for a scene. All this would happen while shooting, mostly on the spot, he said.
He states the efficiencies of the stars will be extremely reasonable as no one tried to act.
Kallappadam, which is produced by Anand Ponniraivan, will launch in cinemas on Friday. Its being distributed by Vadivels mentor filmmaker Mysskin.
