Short film Lakshmi's director to debut with suspense drama
Echarikai Idhu Manidhargal Nadamadum Idam stars Sathyaraj and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in the lead.
Sarjun KM, who directed the critically-acclaimed short film Lakshmi, is making his debut as a director with Echarikai Idhu Manidhargal Nadamadum Idam, starring Sathyaraj and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in the lead. "It's a suspense drama set in Chennai. The film is based on the ideology -- if you do good, you'll receive it back. The story has parallel tracks, which culminates into one towards the climax portions," he says.
Working with a veteran actor like Sathyaraj was a great experience, adds Sarjun. "Both Sathyaraj sir and Varalaxmi gave me a lot of inputs on the sets. I needed a sixty-year-old powerhouse performer, so when I narrated the story to him he was happy to be on board. As for Varalaxmi, she plays a dancer."
The film, which is complete and set for release, has music by Sundaramoorthy KS, besides Kishore, Yogi Babu and Vivek Rajagopal in pivotal roles.
