What they say…

Producer Thirumalai: This is the second film from our company, T. Creations — the first being Agam Puram. The story of Nellai Sandhippu revolves around a middle class family and their experience with the police. As the story is set in Tirunelveli, the director has shot the film there and its surroundings.

Director Kbb. Naveen: I have worked as an assistant to director K. S. Ravikumar ever since his first film. The story of Nellai Santhippu is about a wrong encounter involving the police. We shot the climax with six cameras at the dasara festival of Kulasai Mutharamman temple where lakhs of people converge. Producer P. L.Thennappan has acted in the film as the villain. Malaysia Vasudevan's son Yugendran Vasudevan N., now working with a TV channel in Singapore, has scored the music.

Hero Rohith: After finishing my graduation, I used to drop in at my father's animation studio. There I happened to meet director-producer Thirumalai. He introduced me to director Kbb. Naveen who gave me an opportunity to work in their film. I took my role seriously and started learning dance from Kishore master and fights from Prakash master.

Music director Yugendran Vasudevan N: I am satisfied with my work. Nellai Santhippu combines romance, action and family sentiment. I must thank the director and the producer for having given me the opportunity to work on the film.
