Vennila Veedu Movie is About Gold War


Vetri Mahalingam, who last directed Arumbu Meesai Kurumbu Paarvai,
is currently working on a family drama, Vennila Veedu, with Senthil and Vijayalakshmi in the lead.
“It’s an interesting story, and revolves around a family and a gold necklace. You can call it a gold war between the family members. Senthil and Vijayalakshmi play a middle-class couple. Senthil has essayed the role of the father of a one-year-old kid. Though he has been doing comedy-oriented roles, he has taken a different avatar for the film,” he says, and adds, “We shot in Chennai and Rajapalayam for the film, and the project is in its post production phase.”
Ask him why the title Vennila Veedu, and he says, “In apartments, people address each other with the name of their kids. Here, the child’s name is Vennila and hence the title. Most of the scenes have been shot in an apartment in the city.”
