The 2nd edition of the Behindwoods Film Festival (BFF) celebrated 2014's Ten Best Films that touched our hearts and are etched in our memories. The movies featured were Goli Soda, Mundasupatti, Pisaasu, Kochadaiiyaan, Madras, Vaayai Moodi Pesavum, Saivam, Velaiyilla Pattathari, Kaththi and Jigarthanda. The festival kicked off with the screening of these ten movies from Jan 23 to 25 at NFDC's Tagore Film Center. This was followed by an interactive workshop on Jan 26th at the Lady Andal Auditorium, involving the cast and crew of each film with a lively audience.

For the Madras discussion, on the panel we had Ranjith (Director), Gnanavel Raja (Producer), Santhosh Narayanan (Composer), G.Murali (Cinematographer) and Harikrishnan (Actor) taking part in a very lively session, hence proving the popularity and reception for the movie among the audience. Director KS Ravikumar and Senior Producer T.Siva took on the mantle of honoring the Madras team with their Behindwoods Film Festival awards.

Ranjith tackled a lot of questions about the movie, the lead characters, the pivotal wall and also his take on politics. Murali was asked about the way he showcased the wall and Santhosh Narayanan was grilled on his splendid background score for the film. But it was Harikrishnan (aka) Johnny who earned the loudest whistles and cheers. He looked unrecognizable from his onscreen self and was also asked on popular demand to utter one of his lines from the movie.

A big salute to the Madras team for their attendance in close to full strength. Karthi who felt disappointed on having to miss out on the interactions due to Komban shooting, compensated for his absence by conversing with the audience through a pre-recorded A-V and also responded to a few handpicked questions from fans.
