With his 15 years of experience as an editor and associate editor, Solomon K George is now on an experimental streak with his first directorial film, Kandhaa in Kannada.  

The 92-minutes-long movie was filmed in one long take by a single camera Sony FS 7. “A five-minute duration in the movie was saved for the title and credits and that concludes the film to 97 minutes” says Solomon.         

The film was shot in its entirety in a single location - Bangalore Movies Studio, KR Puram. “The film’s script was written at this studio. We did our rehearsals here for 25 days with the cast and technicians before we took the final shot,” he explains.

The film being a female-centric one features Riya Devadiga, Divya Chavan, Ninasam Pradeep and Girish Srivatsav. According to the director, the movie runs with just five characters, but the screenplay sees seven characters. This leads to an interesting confusion,” Solomon reveals.

Kandhaa, which means ‘child’ is a psychological thriller and has received an ‘A’ certificate, which is evidence of the level of fear factor attached to the movie. Team Kandhaa is busy doing the festival rounds, before it comes out in main theatres.   

His mentor being K Balachander, Solomon did have an opportunity of assisting the veteran in a few films. “He has been my inspiration for a long time now,” he says.
