Kallan is a period crime action movie that revolves around the end of 1980’s. The movie is expected to hit the screens this January 2022. As the announcement released last week; the director, producer and hero of the crew has been receiving threats from various social groups with regard to the title of the movie. Inspite of the chaos, yesterday the ‘kallan’ teaser has been released by Actor Aishwarya Rajesh.
During the Press meet; questions were raised to the debut director Chandra Thangaraj with regard to the title.
“This title is the most suitable one for the script. It’s a Commercial Crime action and does not represent any particular social group or caste. A man who is born in a family of hunting culture is been commanded to stop hunting and the poverty drives him to a series of chaos that involves crime. He does this as a survivor instict along with his group of friends and at a point the ethics has the best judgment for their trivial life.”
Hunting is been a part of every society through out the world. It’s a very close lifestyle that I had witnessed. It’s not just a story about people living standards but also a one that questions and believes in morals of life. It’s a commercial film and at the same time the characters will definitely make an impact to the audience. Especially the two women characters will be acknowledged well. The movie has hunting scenes. It’s been projected very close to the reality with the help of graphics and that’s the reason for the delay.
There isn’t any scenes or symbols that point out any particular caste. We are not planning to change the title because of any social threats. This is been explained to the threatening people and can be understood when they watch the movie. If there is any move from Court or Censor board; we are open to change the title but other than that no threats can push us down” said firmly!
The Producer V. Mathiyalagan stated, ” This confidence is the one I like the most about her. There is lot of issues with the rise of women directors in the industry. Only very few taste the fruit of success inspite of the struggles. With respect to that, Chandra will definitely make a mark in the row of successful director.
This movie is been depicted in the perspective of a writer. She have always questioning me about my other movie releases while kallan was stopped for a while. And her words kept on echoing in me and I was waiting for an opportunity to make it happen.
Whenever there is a news update about “Kallan”; we received threats to change the title. This title is been set with the meaning of “Thief”. It does not refer to any caste. If they watch the movie can understand.” was his statement.
Music Director ‘K’ has worked with a lot of effort to make it a musical gangster movie. The lyrics is written by Na. Muthukumar, Yugabharathi, Chandra Thangaraj. Cinematography is done by M.S Prabhu and Gopi Jagadheeshwar. January 2022 “Kallan” is ready to hit the screens.
