Mysskin had approached few actors to take up the lead,
none accepted just for the reason that it seemed highly
challenging. That’s how Mysskin decided to take
it up. This is the story of two people’s search
for their mother. This story is totally different
from his earlier two films, Chithiram Pesudhadi and
Anjadhe. Snigdha who had danced to a number in Anjaadhe,
enacts a lonely slum dweller in this movie. She meets
a young boy and a mentally challenged man on the way
and joins them through their journey. While traveling
with them who are in search of their mothers, she
realizes the purpose in life.
Music has been scored by the musical maestro Ilayaraja
who has made some fabulous compositions especially
for the climax as per the director’s special
request. He has composed a special symphony for the
background as well. Mysskin took efforts to see that
some symphony artists were flown in from Hungary to
work with maestro Ilayaraja on the symphony.
Produced by K Karunamoorthy and C Arunpandiyan for
Ayngaran International, Nandalala has many interesting
facts hidden inside. Even before its release, it has
already won the critics’ award and the People’s
Choice award, in the Norway film festival. Though
there was undue delay in release of the film, Mysskin
never lost his composure as the delayed release is
the worst situation any film maker faces.
Mahesh Muthuswamy has handled the cinematography for
this movie as in all of Mysskin's movies. Mysskin’s
confidence that the movie will see the light of the
day has not gone in vain as Nandalala is all set to
hit the screens on 26 November 2010.
