For the facts the maverick Gautham Menon has achieved success in seven out of the nine films that he directed in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi! We had a talk with the innovator over a cup of tea here is what he had to say on his latest release Nadunisi Naaygal his 10th movie in 10 years.
You must be excited for Nadunisi Naaygal’s release? Everyone is talking about the movie even though it is on the lines of being an experimental movie.
You see, I always try for movies that are out of the box. The thing is I don’t want to be associated with a particular genre, you know. I am sure NN is also an attempt on similar lines.
Does it have similarities with Bharathiraja’s classical movie?
Well, you could say it is an ode to Sigappu Rojakkal as it shares a similar genre. All I would like to say is it is not meant for the weak hearted, it has been cleared with an A certificate so be cautioned.
So Veera will play the psycho in your movie, any reason you chose him specifically?
He came to me 4 years back and has never looked back. He is really a hardworking lad, and has been under my watchful eyes. I am sure he is going to surprise you. I am happy with his progress.
Your cast of actors and actress is different from your last venture as prominent actors and actresses have been avoided, any reason?
It is not about the cast. At the moment I feel it is the need for me to try out new genres without being too preoccupied about whether it would reach a certain section of the audiences or not. Thank you.
We wish you ll the best for your movie and wait for a box office hit. Thank you sir
