“Kanchivaram has offered me resurgence in my inner self and I unlearned every experience of mine throughout the entire career after working for this film” said Prakash Raj who is so elated about the film getting nominated for 39th Goa International Film Festival. Other films that would be contending along with ‘Kanchivaram’ are Balaji Sakthivel’s ‘Kalloori’, ‘Mudhal Mudhal Mudhal Varai’. Other films are off Tripura and a Marathi film.
Kanchivaram is about a silk weaver who steals bit and piece of this material for weaving a silk saree for his daughter’s marriage. The simple storyline has been blended with the backdrops of Communism in the pre-independence era.
Prakash Raj performs the role of Venkatam and Shreya Reddy as his wife while debutant Shamu takes on the role of their daughter. Priyadarshan has directed and produced the film and is expected to be released during the mid-of-December.
