Having assisted actor-director Prakash Raj in two films, debutant director S P Mohan is ready with his Panjumittai that is due for release on June 1. He assures that it’s a light-hearted film that is at once deep too.

“It is an extended version of my short film, Color-u,” he reveals. The short film won laurels at the Nalaiya Iyakkunar programme hosted by a leaidng television channel. “When the short film made its way to a few international film festivals, it opened up new vistas for me. Of course, in making it a feature film, I had to think about giving it a wider canvas. But ultimately, I have retained the winning core of the short film..”

The story is about how ‘colour can disturb the normal life of a middle-class family’. “The treatment has to be light to connect with the family audience. The hero of the film is an adamant character, and that results in quite a few funny moments.”

The film has music by D Imman and also features actors like Ma Ka Pa Anand and Nikhila Vimal. The director assures that no compromises were made about the budget. “We have spent a lot on the costumes. You will be swept away by them when you see them in the songs. It will be a colourful film, in every sense of the term.”
