Dhayam, the first-ever Tamil film to be shot entirely inside a single room, is all set to hit the screens this November. Going by the recently released teaser, the film looks quirky and engrossing. When contacted, the director of the suspense-thriller, Kannan Rangaswamy, has a lot to say about his debut venture. “This is a first-ever attempt in India. Many movies that were made earlier were predominantly shot inside a house. But Dhayam is entirely shot inside four walls; from the start to the end — it is just a single room,” he beams.

He adds that though it saves the trouble of changing locations, shooting a film inside a room is not a cakewalk, either. “Our audiences want something to keep happening on the screen. So, I had to be careful not to bore them. The screenplay is tightly packed and the viewers will forget that everything is happening inside the same spot,” he says. The director also heaps praises on his cinematographer Packiaraj, an assistant of Nirav Shah. “Packiaraj has used all the possible angles, without repeating even a single angle. The screenplay and cinematography of this film will be spoken of greatly,” he boasts.

 

Santhosh Prathap, who played the lead in Parthiepan’s Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam, is playing the lead in the film, which is about eight people and an interview that changes their lives. Bankrolled by ARS Sunder and P Thiru under the banner Future Film Factory International, Dhayam has music by Sathish Selvam.
