Seeman has been a difficult man to catch hold of. Between working to fortify his Naam Thamizhar Katchi and even being incarcerated at the Vellore prison, films haven’t exactly been high on his priority list. That’s why it is uber surprising that filmmaker Ram Subbaraman, a former associate of Kadhal Kottai Agathiyan and Prabhu Solomon, managed to get him to play a cop in his debut flick Kandupidi Kandupidi. Subbaraman says the story was inspired by a real-life incident that his dad had witnessed at a wedding ceremony — around which a large chunk of the film is based “I was highly impressed with Seeman’s acting skills and the role suited him to the hilt. I couldn’t imagine anybody except Seeman doing that role,” he says.

He adds, “A murder takes place when arrangements are on for a wedding. What happens there and how Seeman investigates the case and solves the mystery within a few hours forms the rest of the story. We have an action sequence for 12 minutes inside  a well, which I think is a first for Tamil cinema,” he says. “The movie has been given a ‘U’ certificate and television actors Murali and Aishwarya Dev play the lead roles, besides there are 70 other characters,” says the 35-year-old Madurai-based director.
