It's a wrap for Iravaakaalam

The film is a drama that talks about marriage and relationships

Published: 16th January 2018

The shoot of SJ Suryah-starrer Iravaakaalam has been wrapped up, and director Ashwin Saravanan seems pretty confident about the film. "We released a teaser titled Andru sometime ago, which didn't have any dialogues. We're looking to release another one--Indru--in a couple of weeks," he says.

Iravaakaalam isn't a supernatural thriller clarifies Ashwin, and adds, "It's a drama that talks about marriage and relationships."

Heaping praise on SJ Suryah, he says, "I approached him (for my film) after watching Iraivi. He generally plays extreme roles, and Iravaakaalam will be the subtlest character he's portrayed in a long time."

Ashwin says Suryah is a director's actor. "He surrenders himself to the script completely and does whatever is required for a film. He never judged me as a director. Also, he gets embarrassed when someone talks to him about his career as a filmmaker. He prefers to identify himself as an actor. In fact, he used to tell me how he's forgotten that he directed a lot of films."

Ashwin has, apparently, tried a different way of storytelling this time. "We set out to establish the basic mood of the film without using dialogues. Say, when a character feels lonely, you can understand it even without the music cueing you. Simply put, we've created images rather than shots. Audiences can understand my characters even if they watch the film on silent mode."

Produced by Thenandal Studios Limited, the film has Sshivada as its female lead and Wamiqa Gabbi of Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam in an important role. Music is by Ron Ethann Yohan, who also composed songs for Ashwin's debut film, Maya.
