Actor Dhanush's home production Kaaka Muttai will have a lot of real-life humour. It will be a realistic movie shot mainly in slums and it revolves around the lives of two young brothers.
Director Manikandan says that he has not packed the movie with cinematically emotonal sequences. His focus is not on the emotional side rather on the realistic view of a world.
"There's a lot of real-life humour. There are three songs as well, but they will feature as montages. The film is not slow-paced as many festival films usually are. At the same time, we have avoided the default dance and songs format of narrative," Manikandan told the IANS.
The interesting development on Kaaka Muttai is that the movie has been selected to the 39th Toronto International Film Festival. The film fest will be held in September 2014 and the Tamil movie will have three screenings on September 5, 6 and 13.
Kaaka Muttai is based on a short film named Wind directed by Manikandan himself. The concept impressed the makers of the movie and they asked the director to prepare a script with universal appeal with all commercial ingredients to attract both mass, theatre audience and festival crowd. The film featuring Ramesh, Ramesh Thilaganathan, Vignesh and Aishwarya Rajesh in lead roles will release in theatres after its world premiere.
