Director Balu Mahendra is coming out with a fresh new project after a long break. This new directorial venture by Balu will stand apart not just for the script or the camerawork but a different one all together. It was the Dhanush-Priyamani movie Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam that came as a last serve from the man in the year 2005.
Now Balu has stumbled upon this new concept of making quality movies on a low budget, keeping away from the crores. His new movie will be shot in an around a house at a budget of just Rs.90 lacs. During a public event the director talked about the high production costs involved these days as he said, “I understand that cost of making a film is high today. But still, I can tell you that a quality and watchable movie could be made in lacs. And I am ready to prove it.” Sasikumar who has often cited Balu as his inspiration will be lending his hands to the production department. The movie will be produced under Sasikumar’s home banner ‘Company’. Sasikumar recalls that the director has always believed, instead of making a flick on a multi-crore budget, it is more than sufficient if the story has well sketched characters backed by a solid script.
Point noted sir!
