An upcoming film Uchithanai Muharnthaal has been scheduled to hit the screens this Friday i.e. on 16th December. The film’s script is based on a real-life incident which was part of the many war-crimes allegedly committed by the Sri Lankan Army during his anti-Tamils offensive a couple of years ago. The military attack not only decimated LTTE but also played havoc with many innocent Tamil women.
Director Pugazhendhi Thangaraj, who made the impressionable Nitin Sathya-Karthika starrer Kaatrukkenna Veli some time ago, is back with another engrossing fare and has taken up a real-life incident this time around. The script is about the grim tale of a 13-year old girl whose world crumbles after she gets gang-raped by personnel of the Lankan Army.
Neenika has played the role of the victim in the film. Veteran actor Sathyaraj and Sangeetha play her parents in the film which has actor-director Seeman Nasser, Lakshmi Ramakrishnan and many others in significant roles. The film did face its own share of problems with the Censor Board as the script had indirectly ‘stated’ that India was partly the reason for the problems besieging Lankan Tamils.
Afterwards, the film was passed with U/A certificate by the censors. The most satisfying feeling for Pugazhendhi was that Gemini Film Circuit, leader in film production, has voluntarily come forward to take up the film’s distribution and release rights. Pugazhendhi is hoping that Tamils, who have always offered their sentimental support to many causes, would patronize the film in a big way!
