Only few people in Kollywood, has guts to churn out a realistic movie, in fact framing real story into film is not a easy task, it required lot of efforts in collecting the fact regarding the incident and literature survey, to show it was Periyar.
In this way, we are bound to appreciate the director Gnanarajasekaran for giving clear picture about the Dravida Legend Periyar. In an Interview Gnanarajasekaran said, he required four years to make the Periyar Script. At the same time we should not forget the contribution made by producer Liberty Creations, who immensely dedicated his sole in making of the film Periyar, apart from that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.Karunanidi sanctioned 95 Lakhs grant for making of Periyar. And Dr.M.Karunanidi was invited to see the preview of Periyar, in Which Dr.M.Karunanidhi appreciated the Periyar team for giving world class picture.
Sathyaraj featuring in Periyar role, in fact Sathyaraj exactly fit into character of Periayar. The film starts from earlier part of Periyar life to his last minute breath. While speaking about Periyar, Sathyaraj said Periyar role is really a challenging task for me, and it required immense workout to mould myself as a Periyar.
Director shot the film in different locations in Tamil Nadu, which includes Periyar’s native Village and director taken the crew to Russia and Malaysia for the film’s shoot, where Periyar will appear in tuxedo suit. Along with Sathyaraj, Jyothirmayi featuring in Nagammai role and Kushboo plays Maniammai role. It was an open book story, so there is no introduction required for Periyar life. Glamour ruined the trust of today’s Youth, in this meantime films like Periyar can differently bring social changes in Tamil Nadu.
Our culture was occupied by western thought, but still our Tamil Culture or Dravidian identity lingers, in order to show the heritage of Dravidian culture, Periyar Team had made a wonderful attempt in making.
The film was expected to release on May 1, no doubt the film will have its own audience to make the film Super Hit.
