Car story

A lot of films come with titles that make one sit up and take notice. The latest to join that list is Pannaiyarum Padminiyum. While actor Jayaprakash plays the pannaiyar, Vijay Sethupathy plays the driver in this film directed by S.U. Arun Kumar. It was apparently a short film initially. Says the director, “After watching my short film, producer M.R. Ganesh asked me if I could make it into a feature film; I was delighted. When I began the casting, I wanted Jayaprakash and Vijay Sethupathy for the roles they are now doing. The music is by Justin Prabakaran, and cinematography by Gokul Benoi. The film aims to be a comedy with twists and turns.” So, who is this Padmini? He points to a Premier Padmini!
