‘Snehavin Kadhalargal‘ Crew is back from the first schedule shooting work of 25 days held in Kodaikanal and Coimbatore. ‘Snehavin Kadhalargal‘ is shaping up with all fresh faces except heroine Advaitha (alias Keerthi) who has acted in ‘Alagarsamying Kudhirai‘ as heroine. First schedule started on 17th July 2013 at Nehru college, Coimbatore and completed on 10th August at Kodaikanal.
Director Muthuramalincoln says “We set out with 68 members crew unit despite close friends’ warnings about the rainy weather conditions now at Kodaikanal and Coimbatore but thankfully just two half days were affected by rain out of 25 days of shoot”.
Here is a note he wishes to share, about his team’s first schedule experience with his Media friends who are always supportive and encouraging..
“Dear friends, Firstly, I never forget your grandeur cheering by publishing the news of such a low budgetted film like our ‘Snehavin Kadhalargal‘ with so-much enthusiasm to encourage me as your fellow journalist. Next, the magnanimous gesture of our producer Ka Kalaikoathudhayam sir is unimaginable. He never asked where the shooting was going on ? who is the heroine ? Is she black or white ? Who are all the heroes etc but he sends out the money promptly to wherever we asked to deliver it without even a single question. Everyday morning I used to send an SMS mentioning when the first shot was taken. That’s all. He never wanted to knew anything. Such a confidence he showed on me and on this project which is a great morale boost for us.
When the movie was committed on this march I started searching for my nominal ‘Sneha‘. I got more than 200 proposals on my email through my friends, PROs and few model co-ordinators. When I got frustrated searching for Sneha I got some stills of Keerthi with modern dress then I shouted ‘eureka’. Then things started rolling; I went to Bangalore; told the story to Keerthi; To convince her doing the role I almost dived like ‘Moondram Pirai‘ Kamal in a coffee shop in Bangalore.
I could not forget her involvement in the story as she has totally transformed herself into ‘Sneha‘ and made the entire unit awestruck by her acting. Realizing the small budget nature of the movie she did not demand any additional comforts. In fact, daily, for the shooting she would pick up the three assistant directors in her own car.
I could not forget the Nehru Arts and Science College management, Coimbatore, for sending their own students when we needed and allowed us to work without any small intervention. In Kodaikanal shooting, we cannot forget the tribal people who treated us as if we are one among their relatives and became our relatives soon”.
So far, Sneha met two lovers, Thilak and Udhay, loved them, wept with them and parted from them. In about three weeks, in the next schedule, Sneha‘s love story will continue in Chennai and Kodaikanal.
