IFFK 2017: Prasanth Vijay’s Athisayangalude Venal is an ‘experiment in subtlety’
| Thursday | 7th December, 2017
Anguleechaalitham, Prasanth’s much-lauded short film made in 2013, was a piquant take on competent consumerism snooping its way into human psyche.
“For me, Athisayangalude Venal is the continuation of an experiment that I had begun with my short film, on how to tell a story with the minimum use of conventional cinematic tropes.”
After finalising the script in 2015 May, Prasanth and friends conducted auditions and interviews across the State to find the actors.
Anand first sees her as an enemy and later as a ‘fellow-conspirator’ who is also on a secret mission.
The well-delineated character of Gayathri, Anand’s cousin who has come to the city for ‘Entrance coaching’, takes the story ahead.
