Poo stars Srikanth, whom Sasi introduced in Roja Kootam, and Parvati, who has acted in the successful Malayalam Notebook and Flash. This is Sasi’s fourth film after Sollamale, Roja Kootam and Dishyum and his first film set in a village. The story is based on a short story ‘Veyilodu Poi’ by Tamilselvan.
This simple chronicle of love will now be awarded the Best Film award by Makkal TV in a grand ceremony on Bhogi Day, January 12th, on the premises of Chettinad Vidyashram School, Raja Annamalaipuram. The awards have been conceptualized with the aim of encouraging Tamil culture and trends that are fast disappearing due to a lack of recognition from the public. Makkal TV has announced these awards to winners in 32 categories such as Best Daily, Best Writer, Best Citizen, Best Drama, Best Short Film, Best Sportsperson, etc.
Dr. Anbumani Ramdass, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, will be presenting the awards. Since the organizers wanted to retain the suspense and thrill of ceremony, they chose not to reveal the names of all the winners. But an exception was made for the Best Film awardee and it was announced that Poo will receive the Best Film award for its realistic portrayal of rural life in the interior of Tamil Nadu.
Director Sasi, it was announced, will be receiving this award.
