Will Bala’s assistant prove himself in Acharya?
June 13, 2006
In the last couple of years, Tamil cinema has never had it so good. Films are into experimenting with various story ideas, be it an action film, a comedy, a thriller or simply a combination of all! And thanks to the technological advances films have never looked so striking, distinguishing, or exciting. The expectations that arise with each new film are only on the rise, and debutant directors and filmmakers are more than ready to meet those challenges. Ravi, who enters the field, comes from ace director Bala’s school of learning. With his first film, Acharya, with actor Vignesh, Ravi is sure of his capabilities and believes in producing a good product. The story, to start with, is in itself quite revealing of what one can expect from filmmakers like Ravi.

To take the literal meaning of Acharya, that denotes the age-old practices of a culture gone by, of an era in the life of a Brahmin, the film traces the life of one such Brahmin, who tries hard to uphold the rituals and traditions that are fast disappearing. Says Ravi, “I have tried to be true to the subject, and the film follows the mantra of realism. All the eight songs that are going to be featured in the film will not have the artistes singing along. No lip movement whatsoever. To bring such a character and story alive, I did have to look within, and understand the character in its true essence, in order to bring out the best.”
