Bala, who has helmed hits like Sethu, Nandha, Pithamagan, Naan Kadavul and Avan Ivan, brings to film patrons his new film titled Paradesi. The film promises an unusual script in keeping with his usual style.
Paradesi is based on certain real life experiences that occurred in the 1930s pre-independence India. Atharva Murali plays the protagonist, while Vedhika C Kumar and Dhansika are the leading ladies in the film.
Music is by GV Prakash Kumar, cinematography by Chezhiyan, dialogues are by Nanjil Nadan and editing by Kishore. Paradesi has been shot back-to-back in Salur and Manamadurai in Sivagangai district, in parts of Kerala- Munnar and Talaiyar and the forest areas of Kannakarai in Theni district.
Expect something raw and real if it is a film from director Bala. The National Award winning filmmaker’s next venture ‘Paradesi’ faithfully follows the first setence.
Starring Atharvaa, Dhanshika and Vedhika in the lead roles, the film is based on real life incidents that took place before independence in the 1930s.
The film is said to be inspired from Malayalam novel ‘Eriyum Thanal’. Initially Bala apparently decided to opt for the same title for the movie also.
However he changed the title as Paradesi later. The movie deals with the trials and tribulations that a couple working in a tea estate undergoes to raise their son.
‘Paradesi‘ hat was wrapped in just 90 days has music by G V Prakash Kumar. The audio was launched in style at a grand function in Chennai recently.
Says Bala, “I would like to thank the cast and crew of the film for making it possible. Without their support, I would not have completed Paradesi.”
He adds: “Atharva has proved himself as an actor in this film. He underwent enormous difficulties. Dhanshika and Vedhika have given their best.”
Atharva is on cloud nine. He says, “I am so lucky to work with Bala sir so early in my career. It was a great learning experience.”
While Vedhika and Dhanshika too are equally thrilled, G V Prakash Kumar, who has also joined hands with Bala for the first time, says, “It was a totally different experience scoring music for this film.”
Vairamuthu has penned the lyrics and he says Bala has come out with a touching script. “I have tried to add more life to it with my lines,” he adds.
