Speaking about this, director Prasad Prabhakaran says, “ I can proudly say this is a never before attempted concept. Pooram festival in Thrissur is the biggest festival in the Universe, attended by a million people every year. This festival happens for seven days in total.
There are thousands of artists playing hundreds of instruments in the event and the atmosphere will be absolutely electric and totally magical. It has been Resul pookutty’s real-life dream to record the sounds of Pooram live. This movie is about a sound designer who wants to capture the sounds of this festival in his mike and record it.
To our delight and honour, Legendary Resul Pookutty plays this sound designer role. This movie is titled ‘Oru Kadhai Sollattumaa’. I am so proud Resul Pookutty chose this script to make his acting debut. Capturing the entire festival visually and its sounds for a movie’s purpose was a monstrous challenge and I must accept that my team has pulled it off incredibly well. We started our meticulous planning and preparations four months before the shoot itself.
Over 80 technicians from Hollywood and Bollywood worked tirelessly in capturing the sounds of Pooram live for our movie. The camera team have captured over 300 live performing artists using 22 cameras. This movie will be such an experience that one can watch it even with their eyes closed. The sounds and the narration will convey the festival, moods and the story so brilliantly.
The music of the film is done by Rahul Raj and the lyrics were penned by Vairamuthu. This movie is made in four languages with Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi being the other three languages. I am so very excited about the outcome and can’t wait for the audience to witness the experience that we have achieved to bring out”.
