What they say…

Producer Balkeesh Alavudeen: When director Ravipriyan came to me with a story on the TASMAC shops in Tamil Nadu and particularly how the people working there are treated in society, I got interested to produce the film. Trichy N. Babu joined me in the venture and the film has come out well.

Director Ravipriyan: I have worked with directors K. Balachander, Indiran and Majith. This is my first film. It is based on an incident that happened at the popular Tiruchi bus terminus, Sathiram Perundhu Nilayam. In fact it was the story which helped me easily find a producer.

Hero Roshan: I am a theatre artiste and have won several awards in Tiruchi and other places. I wanted to prove my mettle on celluloid. Director Ravipriyan happened to be looking for someone to play the lead in his film and he said I fitted the role to a T. I feel my work in the film will fetch me recognition.

Music director Sreeram: I have been interested in music from a young age. My first film was Akku. Director Ravi Priyan who watched it liked my work and approached me to do his film. My future films include Kaanagam, Virudachalam and Annakalangiyam Magal Poonkodi.
