Ace Devyani teams up with comedian Vivekh in the film Ezhumin with a social message. The film revolves around about six children who are professionals in self-defence techniques like Silambam, Karate, Kung fu and Boxing etc. While one of the kids is well off and is the son of the Vivekh-Devyani couple, the other five come from slums. How the rich couple help the strugglers and motivate them to take part in national level competition forms the crux.
V.P. Viji who gave the recent well-made psychological thriller Uru wields the megaphone for Ezhumin. Talking to DC as to how he was able to convince Devyani, he said, “When I narrated the script, she understood it was a motivational film and has a social message. She was highly impressed and agreed to be part of it. And she didn't even speak about her salary then.”
He adds, “As far as Vivekh sir is concerned, by nature he is a socially conscious person. He said such a film which has a relevance to the society needs to be told and was glad to come on board.” The highlight of the film is the real fight sequences performed by the children without a body double.
While Praveen, Srijith, Vineesh, Sukesh, Deepika are already state level champs, Krithika is a national champion and won silver in a Silambam competition.
