Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru, which was released last week, has turned out to be the best opening in GV Prakash’s career so far. Though the film had some funny moments, some scenes didn’t go well with a few sections of the audience. A segment of the film features Urvashi as a host of a TV reality show, which is similar to Solvathellam Unmai, hosted by Lakshmy Ramakrishnan. The filmmaker-host is upset with the team, and feels that her sentiments had been repeatedly hurt.
Lakshmy tells City Express that she hasn’t watched the film yet and does not intend to. “If I decide to watch a film, that should help me grow as a writer, technician and a better person. I saw the teaser, but didn’t want to react. Honestly, I never thought it would be this intense.”
She highlights a specific comment in the film... “There’s this dialogue which goes: ‘If you want a flat in Oragadam, help the couple separate’. I mean, how cheap is that? What’s that?” Lakshmy adds that it’s fair to have comedy in films but it should not poison people’s mind. “If the content was fabricated, would my show go beyond 1,000 episodes?”
Lakshmy had expressed her opinions on Twitter, but no one except GV Prakash responded to it. “He told me that he’d like to meet me soon. To me, silence isn’t wisdom. It only means cowardice and hypocrisy. I have worked in Rajesh’s Boss Engira Bhaskaran (2010). But no one told me that they had plans to keep such a lengthy sequence in the movie.,”
City Express also spoke to director Rajesh. “I didn’t do the characterisation keeping Lakshmy in mind. If you notice I haven’t even used the dialogue ‘Ennama ippadi panreengale ma’. I have worked with her and have immense respect for her as a filmmaker. Whatever I showed in the film, I had no
intention of hurting her,” he said.
