Director Mysskin talks about Thupparivaalan which has Vishal, Vinay, Prasanna, Anu Emmanuel, Andrea and Bhagyaraj in lead roles.
“We have 10 more days of shoot left for Thupparivaalan and I am happy with the way the movie has shaped up so far. I had this script in mind for a long time now and Vishal fits the bill of playing a Sherlock Holmes – like a detective,” says Mysskin in a statement.
“Prasanna’s character has the shades of Dr. Watson. Everyone gets inspired from something or the other. Mahatma Gandhi was inspired by Harichandra. Likewise, Edgar Allen Poe came up with the first detective story and then came Sherlock Holmes.
There is a thin line between inspiration and plagiarism. My story has nothing related to Sherlock Holmes or other detective movies. Thupparivaalan has anecdotes from Subramaniya Bharathi, Mahatma Gandhi, there is love, friendship, and ego,” he adds.
