Saranya Ponvannan, winner of the national award for ‘best actress’ for her role in Seenu Ramasamy’s Thenmerku Paruvakaatru in 2011 and many Filmfare awards, plays the prominent role in an upcoming film titled as Amma Ammamma which is directed by debutant Balu Manivannan who also pens the screenplay and dialogues.
Produced by Mambalam Chandrasekar under his banner Chandrasekar Thiraikkalam, Amma Ammamma has its script penned by the producer himself. Sampath Raj plays Saranya’s pair in the film which has Anand, Sujitha, Devadarshini, T.P. Gajendran and Santhi Williams essaying significant roles.
K.V. Mani is the film’s cinematographer while Sunil Kumar takes care of the editing. M.V. Raghu has scored the film’s music. Talking about his debut film, Balu sounds emphatic. “I have worked as assistant director in films such as Mogamul, Bharathi and Periyar. In Amma Ammamma, Saranya and Sampath play a couple who aren’t blessed with a child even after 15 years of matrimonial life.
“Once they go to a temple where they meet the couple of Anand and Devadarshini who have two sons. The two couples become deep family friends soon. Devadarshini, who is pregnant with her third child, dies immediately after giving birth to her daughter. Saranya wants to bring up the daughter but Anand’s 10-year old son does not want to give away his now-born sister.
“The rest of the story has been narrated interesting and in an emotional manner. We are sure audiences would support our endeavour in making good cinema,” concludes Balu.
