Iniya loves a terrorist


Jeffy, a former assistant to Vikram Kumar, turns independent with a psychological thriller titled, Nugam. He says that the title of the film has aroused much curiosity. Nugam means ‘burden’ — unbearable, unavoidable burden with emotional pain, he says. “There’s no hero here. Set against a terrorist backdrop, it’s the story of a tussle between two baddies.“

Besides Iniya, newcomers Jeybala, Suresh, Preethi and Vijayakumar essay lead roles. Iniya plays a college student who falls in love with the terrorist Jeybala without knowing his background.

“She has given a mature performance,” Jeffy reveals. Kanja Karuppu is also present in a key role, but there are no comic interludes for him in the script.
