‘Kaviperarasu’ Vairamuthu has lauded the ‘Kanavu Variyam’ Director Arun Chidambaram.“My loving brother Arun Chidambaram, Writer, Actor and Director of ‘Kanavu Variyam’ has won two prestigious Remi Awards.
I am so happy that this award makes all Tamilians feel proud on this achievement and this is a world recognition for Tamils in arts and entertainment.
I have known Arun Chidambaram as a young poet and a dreamer. On observing his passion, I had a firm belief that it would take him to great heights and a greater stature. By making my belief true, he has strengthened my convictions. This movie is a slice of cultural aesthetics of the Tamils,” said Vairamuthu.
“Kanavu Variyam reflects the culture of our land, its people, its children, our dreams, our expectations, our colors, and our thoughts. I was deliberating as to what would have been the fundamental reason this movie won 2 Remi awards and realized that it was because it faithfully mirrors the roots of our culture without any pretensions.
The world thrives on cultural roots of ethnic communities, their thoughts, their expectations, their struggles and the hope that is borne out of a little offshoot of faith that springs in midst of life’s struggles. Arun Chidambaram has portrayed how such an unswerving faith resurrected a village that has no power. I am proud of this award.
I am also proud that the boy who grew up in front of my eyes, the boy who was in love with our literature, has risen himself to the heights of world artistes. Remi is not an easy award to win, it is dreamt by many but achieved by a select few,” he added.
“Borrowing the great poet Bharathi’s words, I wish you thus – ‘Let your dreams come true and what is within your reach, let it be expedited’. While Arun Chidambaram contributed to the artistic side of movie, Karthik Chidambaram gave the art its shape by producing the movie.
It would not have been possible for Tamils to reach this height without the financial and managerial contribution of Karthik Chidambaram. The recognition for this great achievement is equally shared between Arun Chidambaram and Karthik Chidamabaram. Best Wishes,” said Vairamuthu.
Apart from playing the lead role and directing the movie, Arun Chidambaram has written the Story, Screenplay, Dialogues and Lyrics for ‘Kanavu Variyam’. Jiya (Introducing) plays the heroine. Other star cast include Ilavarasu, Black Pandy, Prof.Ku.Gnanasambandan, Yog Japee and Sendhi Kumari.
