R.C. Shakthi, who was the first to direct Kamal Haasan in the film, 'Unarchigal', is now back after two decades with a 45-minute, short film titled, 'Ainthu Rojakkal'.

Kamal Haasan has even penned the lyrics for the title song and sung it too. R.C. Shakthi’s elder daughter, Shanthi Prabhu, produces the film; it’s a promising story with a good message.


“The film stars my grandson and granddaughters in the lead. The story is about how social evils and violence have affected children,” says Shakthi.

Hearing that his old friend, Shakthi, was directing a short film now, Kamal Haasan went to the site where they were shooting and mingled with the artists and the director, seeking to know about the film’s storyline and other technical details.

“It was a surprise visit by Kamal,” Shakthi said, the star taking time off from his busy schedule to select the tune he preferred.

Music for the film is by Shyam. Sathya Priya and Shobana also play key roles.
