Young filmmaker Sri Ganesh, who is content with the release of his long-delayed project Kuruthi Aattam, feels that Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is one of the highlights of the action drama. According to him, he realized the need to have someone of his stature as the film's musician to do justice to the story while writing the script.
He says, "While writing the latter half of the script, I felt that the story requires support of an effective background score. I'm just a one-film old director and I felt that an experienced music director's input would be of great help. He immediately agreed to come on board when I approached him."
Sri's debut vehicle 8 Thottakkal which was released five years ago was a critically successful film. How has he evolved as a filmmaker while making his second movie? He says that he has bettered his craft with regard to utilizing techniques associated with editing, music and cinematography now.
"8 Thottakkal was a story which involved a few characters, but Kuruthi Aattam, on the other hand, involves more characters and is made in a bigger canvas. I have felt that the writer in me has also evolved gradually. The sequences in this film have been written keeping in mind the need to offer a comparatively bigger theatrical experience to viewers," he says.
Sri Ganesh notes that the film industry worrying over lack of audience in theatres is just a temporary phase and that film buffs will return to movie halls when exciting content is offered to them.
He points out, "Even after two horrifying waves of pandemic, we had huge hits like KGF 2 and Vikram in Tamil Nadu. Engaging films will always continue to attract movie buffs. Nothing can match the celebration of collective film viewing."
