Here’s a Tamil film that’s gone international. Literally. Radiopetti , an 83-minute film directed by debut filmmaker Hari Viswanath, recently won an award in the Busan International Film Festival under the New Currents competition category.

The film tells the tale of a vintage radio and an old man. The man’s love for listening to the radio and how it affects his everyday life forms the storyline of the film that has been majorly shot in locations in Chennai and Pondicherry.

While stage artiste Lakshmanan has played the lead role of the old man, upcoming actor Nivas Adithan, who has done roles in Ula and Kaaka Muttai , plays his son. Music for Radiopetti has been composed by Richard Ford, a British music composer.
