Left Right Left (LRL), which is slated to hit the screens on June 14, created an impression among the film goers that the film is an attempt to cut through political diaspora in Kerala. But director Arun Kumar Aravind denies it stating that it is a social drama that follows the format of a thriller. The movie has nothing to do with current political happenings in the state.
Talking to a leading daily, Arun Kumar Aravind admits that his third directorial venture, Left Right Left, is a social drama and politics is surely part of the film. But he adds that LRL is not a discourse on leftist politics in the state. "It is not 'politically infested'. It just happens that a character in the film is a politician. Otherwise LRL is no attempt to cut through Kerala's political diaspora," The New Indian Express quotes him as saying.
Although the film deals with a radical subject, it is high on entertainment quotient as it does not follow any thematic or stylistic format of any previous Malayalam political thriller. Meanwhile, the director adds that the movie has not been made keeping any class audience in mind. It is purely a mass film, which will impress all classes of viewers.
Arun Kumar Aravind further says that Left Right Left is not a hero-oriented film and all actors in it are unconditionally surrendered to the screenplay. The movie is about three troubled characters, who go through a spate of traumatic events in childhood and adolescence. The film focuses on their emotional evolution as individuals.
