Selvakannan’s ‘Nedunalvadai’ from March

Filmmaker Selvakannan makes his foray in Kollywood with a movie titled Nedunalvadai. The film explores intense relationship in a family, Tamil culture and a grandfather’s sacrifice for his grandson.

The film is jointly produced by 50 students. Selvakannan had earlier worked with Gandhi Krishna, Saamy, Rajesh M Selva among others.

The movie stars Poo Ramu, Anjali Nair, Ajay Natraj, Mime Gopi among others. Music is by Jose Franklin and cinematography by Vinod Rathanswamy. The highlight of the movie is that Vairamuthu has penned all the songs.

Praising Selvakannan for giving him such an opportunity, Vairamuthu said, “When he approached me, he said he wanted all the songs in chaste (Nellai dialect) Tamil without the use of English words. It was a heartwarming moment for me.”
