Sasi Kumar became a celebrity not only in Tamil Nadu but in the neighbouring state of Kerala as well with his hard hitting film Subramaniapuram.
The film paved the way for experimentation in Tamil cinema. Many unknown filmmakers turned their great ideas into experimental films which was lapped up by the masses.
Now the producer/director/actor who started it all is back with Pasanga (Boys) [he is the producer here], which hits theatres on May 1.
Shobha Warrier caught up with Sasi Kumar to know more about the summer treat for children and more.
Why did you decide to produce Pasanga?
After Mani Ratnam's Anjali, not a single film has been made for children in Tamil. Therefore, it was my desire to make a film for them. When Pandiaraj [director of Pasanga] narrated the story through Kathir [cinematographer of Subramaniapuram], I felt as if my dream had come true. It was a beautiful touching story.
