The success of this small film was celebrated by many Kollywood celebrities apart from regular movie-goers and critics. Directed by Arun Prabu Purushothaman, Aditi Balan, who played the protagonist in the movie, received huge appreciation from several quarters for portraying complex emotions. The makers had approached several leading heroines to play the lead role, but all of them had rejected the offer. The genre, treatment and characterisations in the film offered a different experience to the audience. Fatima Sana Shaikh, we hear, will play the protagonist in the Bollywood version, which is expected to go on floors in a couple of months’ time.
