Thambi Ramaiah's directorial venture titled Maniyar Kudumbam
The director's last film was Vadivelu's Indiralohathil Na Azhagappan
Actor Thambi Ramaiah, who previously directed Manu Needhi and Indiralohathil Na Azhagappan, is back to direction after a hiatus and as we had previously reported, his venture will star him alongside his son Umapathy. The latter made his debut last year with Adhagappattathu Magajanangalay. While the film was previously titled Ulagam Vilaikku Varugirathu, it's now confirmed that the film is called Maniyar Kudumbam. Sivakarthikeyan released the film's first look on Twitter.
Talking about the film, Thambi Ramaiah says, "It's a story about the rise and fall of a family narrated in a comical fashion. What happens when the family head is reckless, and how that affects the son's behaviour, and the entire family, is the story of Maniyar Kudumbam."
The filmmaker, who is producing the film himself, has also penned the lyrics and composed the music. "I've been inspired by MS Viswanathan and Ramamurthy, and always wanted to compose music for a film. I'm glad that it happened with my own directorial," he adds.
Starring Mrudula Murali as the female lead, the film also features Radha Ravi, Samuthirakani, Yashika Aannand and Vivek Prasanna.
