Sivappu Enaku Pidikkum, directed by Youreka is a controversial film from producer J. Sathish Kumar’s banner. Even though the film had been completed two and a half years ago, it is yet to see the light of the day.
Talking to DC, producer JSK Sathish says, “After completing Sivappu Enaku Pidikkum, we had to concentrate on other projects which is why we had to put this film on hold. The film is centered on sex education and red light areas in the city. When I announced this project, many people questioned me. I had to explain it to them saying that Sivappu.. also has a message.”
Director Youreka doubles up as an actor in the film. “He will be seen as a journalist and when he meets Sandra Amy’s character— a sex worker, she explains five incidents from her life. The story will also touch on the fact that all sex workers do not come to the red-light area of their own will,” says the producer of Puriyadha Pudhir.
JSK also opines that Chennai should have its own red light area. “When Mumbai can legalise prostitution, why not Chennai? If the city has its own red light area, the whole process will be streamlined,” shares JSK.
The Censor Board has appreciated the bold effort of Sivappu Enaku Pidikkum, “The film was issued an A certificate even though there is not one sleazy or explicit scene. The members heaped praises on the film and stated that the film was given an A certificate only because the content is meant for adults,”
concludes the producer.
