be realized in cinema,” said the director,
“but television is different: you
don’t have the financial risks and
the limited time factor cinema has. With
television we can explore more deeply the
themes we want to.”
Thekkathi Ponnu is the story of three villages,
three families and three generations. And
the generations-long conflict between the
families of Napoleon and Chandrashekar.
Another aspect of the story is to portray
village girls and how they possess gender
equality without having to fight for it
the way girls in towns and cities have to.
The serial would like to show how, in work
and relationships and family, women in villages
seem to share more equally in villages.
The serial will be televised from April
14, 2008 on Kalaignar TV at 8pm. The script
is by Rathnakumar, dialogue by Kavingnar
Thenmozhi, Sivaji, and Rose Muhilan. Lyrics
by Sengan, and Thenmozhi. Production by
P. Jayaraj of Manoj Creations
