Debut director Sakthivel Perumalsamy has urged movie buffs not to miss out on the first 10 minutes of his upcoming flick, Urumeen, starring Bobby Simha, Kalaiarasan and Rashmi Menon in prominent roles.
"We've used motion capture technology briefly in our film. This part comes in the beginning for about 10 minutes and I don't want audiences to miss it as it is interconnected with the rest of the story. If the initial portion is missed, one might find it difficult to follow the story," Sakthivel said.
He has also revealed that the story houses three different time periods. While the first part will showcase the urban life of Chennai, the second part of the film will happen in the midst of a forest.
"It was for the third part of the story which unfolds against the backdrop of 17th century kingdom, we used motion capture," he said, adding that 15 technicians from the city of Coimbatore worked on the visual effects of this film.
"I was so impressed with their work as they achieved word class output with just open source coding... All this at a very reasonable price," he said.
On being asked how he joined hands with the National Award winning actor Bobby Simha, Sakthivel responded by saying that they knew each other from a very long time.
"I've known him even before both of us entered the film industry. We were supposed to work together much earlier, but things didn't fall in place," said Sakthivel.
