Balas assistant shoots in an archaic Tanjore prison


Therodum Veedhiyile

Saro, an erstwhile assistant director who has assisted director Bala in the making of some of his films, turns director with a film titled Therodum Veedhiyile (TV). The one-line script of the film is about the hero, who wanders around without listening to his parents’ advices but falls deeply in love with a home-looking girl (the heroine, of course!).

Most portions of the film have been shot at an archaic prison situated close to the historic and renowned Brahadeeswarar Temple. The prison is more than 100o-years old, locals say. The construction of the prison, based on the architecture of those times, is still looked at in awe. Saro has judiciously made use of the prison and its surroundings to shoot the sequences of the film.

The films stars Pradeep, who played the lead role in a film titled Pazhaniyappa Kalloori, as the male lead. Payal Ghosh, who played the heroine in a Telugu film titled Pralayam, plays the heroine opposite Pradeep. The film has music by D. Imaan who recently crossed the landmark of scoring music for more than 50 films.

Saro, who wields the megaphone for the first time, hopes the film would click in a big way.
