It's the month of February and love is in the air. And on the occasion, director Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan dropped the poster of his upcoming film Kadhal Enbadhu Podhu Udamai, featuring Lijimol Jose and Anusha. In the poster, both the actresses are seen in an intimate position. Jyotika, who shared the same on her instagram story had said that, "“Love is not about 2 diff genders, it’s about 2 pure hearts! Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day by respecting love and only love. From the makers of #TheGreatIndianKitchen (sic).”
An excited Lijimol Jose, who was last seen in Tamil in Suriya and Jyotika's home production Jai Bhim, too, dropped the pictures and wrote that love is all that matters. The poster has been winning appreciation from many. Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan, the film's director, wrote, "“Love is not about 2 diff genders, it’s about 2 pure hearts! Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day by respecting love and only love. From the makers of #TheGreatIndianKitchen (sic)."
We hear that the shoot for the film has been wrapped up. Starring Lijomol Jose and Anusha in the lead, the film also features Rohini, Deepa and Vineeth. The film is likely to hit screens in March and we hear that the post-production is in full swing. It's not often that we see Tamil films portraying homosexuality on screen and hence, a lot is riding on the film.
Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan had earlier made films like Lens and the recent Thalaikoothal. The film revolves around the ancient practice of senicide (giving involuntary euthanesia to the old) and how a son goes great lengths to protect his father from the bone-chilling inhuman practice. The film stars Samuthirakani, Kathir and Vasundhara in the lead. Thalaikoothal opened to positive reviews from the audience. Lens, on the other hand, was a hostage drama, which dealt with voyeurism. The film starring Anandsami and Jayaprakash in the lead, was made in Malayalam and Tamil and did the rounds on film festival circuits.
