50 friends help make Nedunalvaadai
We have seen films made through crowd funding resources. Nedunalvaadai by debutant director Selvakannan has something unique, when it comes to production. Fifty of Selvakannaan’s friends, who studied with him in 2000 batch in Shankar Polytechnic in Nellai, who are well placed now, have come together and invested money to produce Nedunalvaadai. It all started when one of Selvakannan’s friends came to know that the latter is struggling to get a producer for his directorial venture. He connected all the classmates through WhatsApp group and finally the film happened.
“The movie deals with two issues. Unlike male offspring who has the right to inherit property, the daughters in the family are not given equal rights and recognition. Secondly, the women are always portrayed in a bad manner and blamed for love failures. It is not so. I have reasoned out their side of reality in the film,”Selvakannan discloses.
The film features Poo Ramu, Anjali Nair, Ilango, Mime Gopi. Ajay Natraj and Senthi among others. Jose Franklin scores the music.
