Parthiban on his film Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga

Parthiban recently met the press in connection with his upcoming film Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga (KIN). Excerpts from his speech.


“IN KIN I have used an abstract way of narration and have said a few things very boldly. This courage, I got it after the success of Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam (KTVI). People who worked with me in KTVI told that the narration is a little confusing and that the audience will not understand.

I for one feel that we are always underestimating the intelligence of the audience. We keep delivering commercial films with a few punch dialogues, dance and action scenes, thinking that people would only patronize such products. But the success of KTVI gave me the confidence that I can give an intelligent film which the audience would appreciate. 

When people ask me why is there a gap between KTVI and now, I would like to say that after KTVI, there were a few producers with whom I traveled for a while trying to make a film as per their requirements. Invariably, all their cheque payments got bounced and I could not proceed further. That’s when I chose the crowd funding means of producing KIN.   

In my opinion, good story narrators are not good film makers because film making is not just about storytelling to artists and producers. I get very annoyed when producers ask me- what is the story? It is not arrogance, but it is freedom. Recently, Gautham Menon was mentioning that a film is the result of the arrogance of a creator and I agree with him completely.

Now coming to my film, when a creator is happy with his end product, how does he reach this to the audience?

At this instance, I would like to address this issue to the producers. Why should we have an Ajith or a Vijay film on a festival day? Because the day their films are released, is a festival in itself. It is not like if Ajith or Vijay films are released on other days, people are not going to watch them. I will watch an Ajith film even if it is released on a Tuesday.

On the other hand, if smaller films are released on the festival days, it would be like giving an opportunity to small filmmakers and directors”.

Parthiban also revealed that KIN will hit the screens on 23rd December and the audio on 4th December. He concluded the meet with a statement that he is confident in the audience’s intelligence and encouragement for good films and that his film also would be well received.
