and cute love story set in a suburb where
modernity is yet to make its first impact.
Produced under the banner of Capital Film
Works by SPB Charan, who has built a reputation
for good cinema, the film is directed by
Rajamohan, a former assistant of Rajakumaran
and A. Venkatesh.
cast is full of new faces, but not of the
usual kind. That is to say though the persons
starring in the film will be seen on-screen
for the first time, they are not new to
cinema. The lead male is being played by
Ramakrishnan, an assistant of Cheran, Tharun
an assistant of director Tarun Gopi plays
the antagonist and at least eight other
assistant directors have found a place in
the cast of the movie, even spot boys will
be seen in significant roles. The ideology
is that people who are constantly involved
with cinema and are in love with the medium
will certainly be able to do much more justice
to a role than a rank newcomer, the only
exception to this being the heroine Dharshana,
who is a medical student.
The film will not be a regular commercial
fare with the usual hero-heroine duets,
loud villains and other such elements. In
fact, it would be appropriate to say that
Kunkuma Poovum Konjum Puravum has neither
a hero nor a villain. Everyone is only a
character in the story, just like in real
life. The film has taken Tamil cinema back
to the region of Muttam where unforgettable
flicks like Alaigal Oyvathillai had been
shot. The place had not been in favor of
film makers for some time now.
Camera has been handled by Siddharth. Yuvan
Shankar Raja is said to have forsaken all
modern facilities and gone in for full live
orchestras with instruments with a local
flavor to bring out a stirring score apt
for the film’s setting.
The trailer has shown the lead pair as school
goers, which suggests that this should be
a teen love story. Interesting! But, what
one cannot understand is why the posters
of the film have shown a very old man and
woman. We will know this Friday.
