Ranjit Jeyakodi wrapped up his Yaarukkum Anjael with Bindu Madhavi in March. But before they could begin the post-production work, lockdown was imposed. Now that Kollywood is back on its feet, the director released the first-look poster of the film, in which a blood-soaked Bindu is staring at a man lying dead in front of her.
“There’s quite a bit of violence in the film,” says Ranjit with a laugh, “But the film talks more about survival. Bindu plays a doctor, who lives in London. She comes to Ooty with her sister, played by Darshana Banik, to solve a mystery.” He adds that this will not be a poetic film, even though it has women in the lead. “This is a hard-hitting film. There’s a lot of action in the film. But it’s not the physical stuff we’ve come to expect,” he adds.
Ask the director why he chose Bindu for the role, and he says, “I wanted someone who could speak Tamil, but hasn’t lived in the state for a long time. So, I felt Bindu was apt for the role. Darshana is a Bengali-Telugu actress, who looks very similar to Bindu.So, we signed her to play her sister.” Charle, JSK Sathish and Mynaa Susan are also part of the cast. “We’ve almost wrapped up the post-production,” he signs off.
