Director Seenu Ramasamy heads to the hills
Director Seenu Ramasamy’s Neerparavai came in for a much praise on various counts. Now the director is busy working on his next script, which he discloses will be a hill-based subject. Speaking to City Express, the director revealed, “The film is yet to be titled. Vimal and Vijay Sethupathy will play the lead roles. The hunt is on for the female lead.”
The film will be based on the hills near Madurai and Thandikodi near Kodaikanal.” Apparently, the producer is KS Srinivasan of Vasan Visual Ventures and Seenu has retained his Neerparavai team - music composer Raghunanthan and cameraman Pa Subramaniam. Neerparavai was based in a fishing village, but this time Seenu is been inspired by the hills. He says, “I have done a lot of research for the project. When I was shooting Thenmerku Paravakaatru in interior Tamil Nadu, I spent a lot of time in Kodalangadu village and loved the locations. I was inspired by the stories I heard.”
Seenu spent a few months in the hilly areas near Kodaikanal to get the feel of the area while honing his script. So after the love story in Neerparavai, what can we expect from this film? “It will be a film about family sentiments and interpersonal relationships. The shooting will start in two months,” he signs off.
