A landmark film about a defining, stormy period in Tamilnadu’s history and  NOT ONE  native tamil actor  in any of the main roles.

Truly Amazing !

Chartered Account by day, cartoonist and Writer by night, passionate athlete at twilight and dutiful householder on weekends  There are people who make things for the Western markets and those who do the same for the Indian market. I make cartoons for an audience who are rooted culturally in India but who are spiritually agile enough to assume Western sensibilities - who swear by Quentin Tarantino AND David Dhawan / Bharathiraja in the same breath - I make cartoons for this audience - the INDIAN diaspora in INDIA !

  1. Ravishanker – I am delighted to be the first to comment. AMAZINGLY CREATIVE CARTOON. I looked at it while drinking my tea this morning and I almost spilled it given the fact that I broke into laughter instantaneously! You packed a whole lot of wit into this! Kizhi! As always amazing detailing of the faces, the hairstyle and the costumes!

    And, thank you so much for your kind reference to my write-up. I am grateful for all the acknowledgment.

  2. Ram Murali : Really super gratified by your reaction. I was doing something else and you “diverted” me into doing this. Frankly, I wouldnt have gone this path without your article. Really love doing this one.

    Thanks to you all the way !
