Myna fame Prabhu Solomon’s next film Kumki, starring Vikram Prabhu, Lakshmi Menon and Thambi Ramaiah is expected soon. But the question on everybody’s mind is not the release date, but what exactly is Kumki. If you think Kumki as one of those captivating non-lexicals, like ‘Jingu chika’ that featured in a song in Myna, you are wrong.
Kumki is a well trained elephant that can lead wild elephants to do what the keeper wants them to do. Kumki elephants are not tame elephants. These elephants are used to train other wild elephants and keep them away from human settlements.
This film is about the love story of a keeper of one such Kumki elephant.
