After Ucchithanai Mugarnthal, here comes a movie called Mithivedi that speaks about Tamil Eelam issue. Australian-Tamilian Anand Maiyur Srinivas is directing Mithivedi. The film revolves around Selvi, a Sri Lankan Tamil played by Neelima, and a Lankan army officer played by Daniel Balaji.
Speaking about the movie, Maiyur Srinivas says, ‘Mithivedi is about landmine issues in neighbouring island nation. The film is a thriller along the lines of world cinema like an Iranian or European film that focuses more on thematic issues rather than on commercial values’.
The subject matter is about the devastating effects of the landmines.
On his part Daniel Balaji, says, ‘after listening to the script, which was unbiased, I readily agreed to do the project.’
