Actor Kishore

After Parthiban’s Oththa Seruppu Size 7 created a record, yet another Tamil film, titled Drama, is eyeing a new high. Directed by Aju Kizhumala, a popular name in the Malayalam industry, the crime thriller is reportedly the first movie in the Indian film industry to be entirely completed in a single shot. 

The film features versatile Kishore, Charie, Jai Bala, Nakulan, Kavya, Preeti Sha in the lead.

Speaking to DC, Aju says, “Drama is a sequence of events that happen in a day’s time in an old police station situated in a rural village. A senior head constable was killed very cruelly in the presence of a newly appointed Sub Inspector and ten other policemen. How an intelligent DSP using his shrewd ways unravels the case and nabs the killer before sunrise forms the rest.”

The director says “We shot for 8 hours with 80 crew members and 18 artistes. There were 180 days of practice including camera and acting rehearsals before we embarked on the record making attempt.”
