How is our society treating young and beautiful girls from a Devadasi Family? It is a known secret that many would like to join the club of teasers. But nobody has come out with the right solutions for these cursed women. Everybody sees the girls as sex toys and tease them with their crooked wishes. But Director Shiva has to come with the solution to this suppressed women.
To know the outcome, you have to wait till August 15. Yes, Dhanam, a film on Devadasi family will be released on that day.
Debutant director G.Siva penned the script besides directing the film. It has a team consisting of the best technicians in the Industry. Maestro Ilayaraja scored the music and ace cinematographer Jeeva handles the camera. Thotta Tharani is the art director and veteran filmmaker and editor B.Lenin is in charge editing the film.
Director Siva briefed the progress of the movie to media persons yesterday at his office. "Many may think that the film is focused on the life style of a prostitute. But it is not true. Though the plot is related to Devadasi system, I would never like to touch the issue. The story is totally a different one. In this society, many think that a daughter of prostitute will also become a prostitute. If anyone tries to get out of the system, the society will never allows her to lead a dignified life. How my heroine Sangeetha faces all these problems boldly is the centre point of the story. In fact, Sangeetha accepted this project much before the release of Uyir. We never try to capitalize her commercial image gained from the hit film Uyir. Of course, there is good scope for her to show her stunning beauty in this role," revealed the director.
"70 percent of the shooting work has been completed and I hope the remaining work could be completed by the end of July. We planned to release the film for August 15th. The audio may be launched in the first week of July," added the director.
But the preview of spicy and hot looking Sangeetha could convey a different message to the viewers. There are 5 songs in this film and the recording work for most of them has been completed. All the lyrics are written by veteran poet Vaali.
Grish Karnad, one of the best stage artistes and national award winner for his outstanding performance re enters Tamil through this film after a long gap. Karunaas, Ilavarau, Crane Manohar and Scissor Manohar form the comedy team in the film.
