Reshmi Menon, who will be seen in the crime thriller, Kirumi, releasing this Friday, is confident about the movie doing well at the box office. “This is a film that will work and I say that because it is a very simple film taken in a very nice way. It’s about a police informer and the story revolves around the things that can go wrong in the life of such a person. I don’t think there has been a movie on this issue before. It’s got an interesting screenplay,” says Reshmi, and adds that her role in the film is very different from the roles that she has portrayed so far.
“When director Anucharan first approached me for this film, I was a little unsure as the role was very much outside my comfort zone. I hadn’t done a movie like this before. I had to play a typical North Madras woman. I would have a ‘no-makeup’ look and talk proper Tamil. However, after listening to the script, I realised it was a very real film and was happy to be a part of it,” she adds. Reshmi is also busy shooting for Urumi, Natpathikaram and an untitled project in Tamil.
Kirumi has been officially selected to have its international premiere on November 7 at the Toronto Reel Asian Festival. The film is also scheduled to participate in the Mumbai Film Mart, under the aegis of the Jio MAMI 17th Mumbai film festival.
