Money talk

Debutant director Srikantan secured entry into director Balu Mahendra’s film institute after making a short film with Sivakarthikeyan.

“I cherish my experiences in the film institute. They have been instrumental in helping me make my feature film debut,” he says. His Thappu Thanda stars newcomers Sathya and Swetha Gai.

“The film is about the intermingling of three genres. The first half of the film plays like a dark comedy, while the second half becomes a crime thriller. The plot revolves around a hunt for money, the kind that greases palms and buys votes. We have completed the shoot and the film is in its post-production stage,” says Srikantan, who has also roped in Mime Gopi and John Vijay for crucial roles.
