Count on Vetrimaaran to continue to infuse novelties in all his endeavours: the bearded film-maker, whose 2011 film Aadukalam fetched him the national awards for ‘best screenplay’ and ‘best director’, is presently making a 60-minute long feature film on an experimental basis.
Tamil films are usually of two-and-a-half hour duration (150 minutes) but Vetrimaaran’s Visaranai is at least 30 minutes less in length than most Hollywood films which don’t run for more thatn 90 minutes or so.
‘Attakathi’ Dinesh and ‘Kayal’ Anandhi are playing the lead roles in the film which also has Samuthirakani, ‘Aadukalam’ Murugadoss and Misha Ghoshal in prominent roles. For starters, the film would have no songs at all.
“Depending upon the response to the film from audiences and movie-goers, I would continue to make many such movies,” Vetrimaaran has said. G.V. Prakash Kumar is the film’s music director.
Vetrimaran, who has also been producing films simultaneously, is also the co-producer of Visaranai. The ‘first look’ of the film, whose shoot has reached its concluding stages, was revealed recently.
Visaranai is likely to be the first mainstream film of 1-hour duration which would be very new for the audiences and movie-goers as they had hardly seen an hour-long feature film till now.
Sources close to the film’s Unit revealed that though the shoot would be wrapped up by this weekend, the film is likely to release in theatres only by next March.
