An upcoming film titled as Graghanam deals with the events occurring in the on-screen lives of its lead characters in a single night.
Graghanam (eclipse) is usually seen as a ‘bad omen’ by millions across the world as they relate it to unwa(rra)nted political and personal developments. Directed by debutant director Elan, Graghanam deals with what (ill) effects a solar/lunar eclipse might have in a few individuals’ lives.
28-year old actress Nandini Rai makes her debut in Kollywood as heroine with Graghanam opposite Kreshna. ‘Kayal’ fame Chandran, Karunas, Karunakaran, Jayaprakash, Singapore Deepan and Pandi play prominent roles in the film which has music by K.S. Sundaramurthy. Manikumaran had edited the film.
The film’s shoot was wrapped up in a non-stop shoot of 35 days as shoot was invariably held only during the night from 12:00 midnight till 05:00 a.m. Though the film has two heroes, they hardy meet in the film as the script has been penned in such a manner. Director thanked Nandini for her cooperation as most of the shoot was held either late in the night or in the wee hours!
