The first look of the upcoming film Maaya Bimbam, where a girl gives a revengeful look with ‘no smoking’ , ‘no drinking’ and ‘yes for girls’ symbols, was released recently and went viral for its quirky nature. DC speaks to director KJ Surendar, who has worked with many filmmakers, about the details of the film.
“It’s not a ghost film or a revenge saga or even a female centric one; but it’s a movie on friendship, family and romance. I used those symbols just to create curiosity, which I achieved when the poster was released,” says Surendar with a smile.
While Janaki, a new girl from Kerala, debuts in the lead role, Akash plays the male protagonist. Yet another guy Harikrishnan will be seen in a key character. “I was looking out for someone with expressive eyes for the performance-oriented female lead role. I auditioned many girls and finally zeroed down on Janaki.”
Why the title Maaya Bimbam, we ask. “Without knowing about a person, we come to a conclusion about him/her which is wrong. The film conveys a message on this line. There’s a playboy character in the film and hence I used the ‘yes to girls’ symbol on poster.”
Another highlight is that though there are romantic segments, there are no regular love scenes and duets in the movie,” he claims....
