Mayanginen Thayanginen presented a challenging task to Censor board officials recently. The movie stars actor Nithin Sathya and Disha Pandey in lead roles and has Rameswaran handling the cinematography. Undergoing the censor scans, the film was awarded an ‘A’ certificate initially.
Director Vendhan quips, “The film is inspired by a real life incident and has an engrossing screenplay to go with. Mayanginen Thayanginen touches on the lives of the mentally challenged, who are abused in the asylums.” Actors Ganja Karuppu, Pawan, Tharun Chatriya, Tejashree, Ajai Rathnam and Bala are part of the Mayanginen Thayanginen ensemble cast, having music scored by Kannan. “ I had insisted that the Censor Board officials clear it with a U certificate but they wanted me to cut out on the scenes. I can assure you that it hasn’t hampered the story in anyway, since some romantic scenes and action scenes have been cut off to reach a larger audience”, confirms the director. Mayanginen Thayanginen had to make 100 cuts and mute sounds in 10 different places until it got classified as a ‘U’ certificate release. Reportedly, the bedroom scenes between lead pair Nithin Sathya and Disha Pandey came out too steamy. Mayanginen Thayanginen, now ‘U’ certified, releases at theater halls on June 1st.
