For debutant director A C Durai, this is a dream-come-true moment. After all, he has realised his dream of 17 years, that of directing his own venture.Talking to CT, Durai says, “I’ve assisted several directors including Nagaraj, Krishna (of Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame) and Suraaj. I’ve been wanting to direct a film that would entertain the audience. It’s been my dream of 17 years. If Ponmaalai Pozhudhu hadn’t happened, I would have left the industry and gone back home.”
Madhan Karky has penned lyrics for a song in this film “Pon Maalai Pozhudhu” The sequence of the song is a group of students plan to celebrate their weekend in style, plan an outdoor party outside the city. When director requested the lyricist for some fresh content in lyrics, Karky came up with ‘vaarkodhumai kal’
vaa thozhane ennodu
oor vittu odi kaatrai swasikkalam
naal aindhume theithome
mer kooraiyaai vaanam nesikkalam”
The above lines are from the song in the film. Gayathri, who appeared in Yeppadi Ennai Mayakkinai plays Adhav’s Love interest in the film. Pon Malai Pozhudhu is directed by debut director Durai and produced by AG Creations. Music for the film composed by Saravanan of Engeyum Epothum fame.
