Prithviraj is gearing up for a cosmopolitan film
Prithviraj is treading through unforeseen paths in search of his caliber as an artiste.He recently attended a press meet which was held in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala and spoke at length about the Malayalam movie Veettilekkulla Vazhi by director Dr Biju. The movie has a cosmopolitan format and aims to relate with the audiences outside Kerala.
The actor spoke vibrantly and explained, "The biggest limitation of Malayalam cinema today is that our films are not cosmopolitan as they seldom cater to an audience outside Kerala. The only way we can overcome our language barrier is by making our films more cosmopolitan, by inculcating other cultures and languages and different themes. Veettilekkulla Vazhi is such a venture."
Prithviraj plays the role of a doctor at a jail hospital in Delhi, who sets out in search of the father of a child terrorist who breathes his last in the hospital. Indrajith will essay the role of the Tamil extremist in this movie. The filmmaker has got the inspiration for this movie from a piece of news which appeared in the dailies. It mentioned about the Indian Mujahideen recruiting people from Kerala.
Veettilekkulla Vazhi to be shot on Panavision format using sync sound will be a new experience for the audiences and the director claims "However, we are not trying to take any stand on extremism through this film. It is left to the audience to make their own opinions about what they see in the film." The movie will be shot in six different states across India.
