The Tamil film industry has been witnessing the release many romantic love stories from to time. Romance always appeals to the audience, provided it is presented by the makers in the right manner. One such film in the making, ‘Raattinam‘, is making waves in Kollywood at present.
‘Raattinam’ has newcomers Lagubaran and Swathi playing the lead roles and is being directed by Thangasamy. The director, who also makes his debut with the film, had worked as assistant director in the past for many years. Speaking about his film, Thangasamy says, “Without sounding cliched, I would love to reiterate that Rattinam would indeed be ‘different’ from the rest of the pack.
“The film has been set in the backdrop of the Tuticorin Port Trust where our hero works as a supplier at the back yard. Inevitably, the heroine is the daughter of a top-ranking Port official. I have roped in veteran director Raja to play the heroine’s father and am glad that he agreed to my request.
“The script is about how the couple emerge triumphant out of their love affair; I have attempted a very novel way of narrating the story which I’m sure would click with the audience in a big way. The film would be sans the mandatory villains, goons in Tata Sumos and mindless violence. It’s a practical, emotional and cute love story,” concludes the debutant director.
