He claims that it is a myth that we can't make films without songs. Audiences have changed with time and are looking forward to be surprised with cinema. The director thinks, we can still make films with no songs, provided we have content that could keep them engaged for nearly two hours.
Mysskin has written, directed and produced Onayum Aatukuttiyum. But the director says that he is not against the concept of songs. Even in his films, in the past have had songs. According to him, songs shouldn't be included just for entertainment. If it really serves as catalyst to drive the story, then it could be included.
Meanwhile, Mysskin has roped in maestro Illayaraja to compose the background score. "Songs were unnecessary for this film, but music was very important. I personally requested Raja sir to compose the background music. Initially, he wasn't interested but after I narrated the script, he instantly agreed to work," he further adds.
As part of the background score, Illayaraja is using Austrian composer Gustav Mahler's Symphony No 5. Well, the underlining part of the story is that Onayum Aatukuttiyum doesn't even have a heroine.
"It's an action-thriller featuring lot of new faces. I didn't find the need to have a heroine and, therefore, didn't bother to rope in one. I think it's very important to cast as per your need. One unneeded character can prove unworthy for the film," Mysskin concludes.
Known for making Tamil films, such as Anjathe and Yuddham Sei, Mysskin is producing Onayum Aatukuttiyum under his home banner Lone Wolf Productions.
The film, which is nearing completion, is likely to hit cinemas soon.
