Crazy star Ravichandran, in an interview to Times of India, has opened up about his upcoming movie Apoorva, which narrates the love story between a 61-year-old man and a 19-year-old girl.
Since the film will narrate two parallel stories, Ravichandran has said he wanted to try something, that has never been tried before in Sandalwood.
"I actually wanted to try something drastically different with this film. For instance, since there are two stories that take place simultaneously, I initially experimented with splitting the screen in half to show what was happening inside the lift in one and what was happening outside the lift in the other.
I had planned it in such a way that it is up to the audience to decide which half they wanted to follow. But over time, I realized that such a format might confuse people as far as this story is concerned, so I dropped the idea. I did lose 3-4 months on this experiment, but I will work on the format in the future for sure."
The entire story unfolds inside a stuck elevator.
"When two people are stuck in a lift, that is their world, with no further influences. So much so that you even forget about what is 'acceptable' according to society. Add to that the possibility of death being a part of your love story, and the prospects become even more focused. But what happens when death gives you another chance at life?," he has asked.
Apoorva releases in cinemas this Friday (27 May).
