Sangu Chakram is not one of the run-of-the-mill horror-comedies, assures its director Maarison, during a chat with us. With eight children and the stunt choreographer-turned-actor Dilip Subbarayan in the lead, the film is a family entertainer which will surely appeal to the audience, according to him. The film is touted to be a satirical horror film with a pinch of spoof elements sans heroine and songs.

“It wasn’t easy to get a producer for this kind of script. Our filmmaking culture demands a hero, and since my script didn’t have one, it was initially tough for me to rope in a producer. But K Sathish was looking for a unique script that has not been done before, and my film fitted the bill,” Maarison says. The film aims to change all the beliefs about ghosts and the stereotypes of horror movies that Hollywood and other film industries have built up so far. “That was my core idea. I thought about why a ghost or a spirit should be associated with gore all the time. My friends encouraged me, citing that it was an original idea and that made me write the script of the film.”

 

However, shooting the film wasn’t a cakewalk for him since it was hard to get the shots right with the children. “We had to train them beforehand for the camera. I explained to them how they would look like on the screen. But still, they would look at the camera constantly during shots,” he laughs. Vishal Chandrasekar was initially roped in to compose the background score for the film but due to date issues he was replaced by Sabir, who has done a splendid job, says the director.
