Kamal Haasan, winner of multiple national awards and ‘Filmfare’ awards, has lauded film-maker Vetrimaaran for making Visaranai in a realistic manner.
Produced jointly by Vetrimaaran and national award-winning actor Dhanush, Visaranai was premiered last September at the ‘Horizons’ section of the 72nd Venice Film Festival. Based on Chandra Kumar’s Lock Up and starring ‘Attakathi’ Dinesh and ‘Kayal’ Anandhi in the lead Visaranai has Samuthirakani essaying a pivotal role.
Lyka Mobiles has taken up the distribution and release of the film in theatres. G.V. Prakash Kumar has scored the music of the film which is cinematographed by Ramalingam. The film has an emotional connect as its editor Te Kishore passed away last March.
After watching the film yesterday, Kamal Haasan expressed his appreciation of Dhanush and Vetrimaaran’s work. Visaranai is slated to hit the screens next Friday (05th February).
