Missing pages and short memory loss
PGV [ Tue, Mar 6, 2012 ]
- Film Institute student Balaji Dharanidharan, who has directed short films, has ventured into directing a full-length feature film titled 'Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom' (Some pages are missing in the middle). A real life episode involving four friends has inspired him to do the film. The producers are V.S. Raj Kumar and Satish of LeoVision Production.
This is a film said to be based a chapter in the life of cameraman Premkuma, who won the national award for the film 'Pasanga'. Premkumar and Balaji Dharanidharan are good friends and Balaji was witness to the incident that happened. 'What happens when a few pages in a novel goes missing? There's no continuity and you won't be able to understand the story. The film deals with short-term memory loss, and has been told in a humorous tone,' Satish says.
Vijay Sethupathi, who played the lead in 'Thenmerku Paruva Katru', plays the hero in this movie. Acting along with him are Bhagavathi Perumal, Rajkumar, Vigneshwaran and three new faces.
Bangalore beau Gayatri plays opposite Vijay Sethupathi. She was the heroine in 'Renigunta', '18 Vayadu' and 'Maalaipozhudu'.
Balaji Dharanidharan has directed two short films and has written the dialogue for the films 'Varnam' and 'Yean Ippadi Mayakkinai'.
A.R. Rahman's associate Vedshankar has composed the music for 'Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom'. C. Premkumar (Pasanga fame) is the cinematographer
