No South Indian actor was ready to play an impotent don: Kumararaja, Aaranya Kaandam director

4 August 2011 1:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s  Aaranya Kaandam is not another gangster film coming from the south, it is a tour de force of cinema. With the perfect mix of style and substance, the debutant director has gone on to create an indigenous and rooted film of the neo-noir genre, which has a universal appeal.

Aaranya Kaandam won the Grand Jury award for Best Film at the South Asian International Film Festival in 2010 and garnered much critical acclaim after its worldwide release in June 2011. Kumararaja talks about the film in a telephone interview with Nandita Dutta:

How did it occur to you to »
