Aascar Ravichandran is one such versatile producer who gives no importance to the star-values, but for good stories. Churning out year’s best film Dasavatharam, he is so elated taking up the films with no A-rated star casts and it’s for the good theme. ‘Ananda Thandavam’ falls under this genre.
Followed by grand success of Vishal-Bharath starrer ‘Chellamae’, Director Gandhi Krishna wields megaphone for this flick. As known to everyone, it is inspired by late veteran novelist Sujatha’s ‘Pirivoam Sandhipoam’.
