Out of all the fantastic reviews passenger generated from the media I felt most happy reading the hindu story



  1. great encouraging comments for a debundant director… iniyum parayaatha nalla commentukal manassilullavar orupaadu kaanumennu urappaanu.

    best of luck for your new project.


  2. Dear Ranjith:

    You certainly were able to bring to the screen an edge-of-the-seat thriller based on day to day life. Honestly, I did not really think what the climax was going to be as I was really sucked in by the pace of the movie. That was true magic. Surely a screenplay to kill for. A great movie in the thriller genre within realistic premises after Pappettan’s “Season” “Kariyilakkattupole” and K. G. George’s “Yavanika”!! With your debut, you have proven that your influences are truly global, and I haven’t seen a decent thriller movie in Tamil or Hindi in a long time. Kudos to you, magician!!!!

  3. Thanks Reji and drishyan.

  4. One of the best Mallu movies I’ve seen in ages. You’ve managed to get great performances from your cast & crew. Whats next?

  5. Thanks Rasmi.I have completed the new screenplay.thinking of casting these days.

  6. Great. How do you go about casting? When do you start shooting? Im curious to know how movie making works and hence the twenty questions 🙂

  7. rasmi,
    casting based on script and characters:)
    shooting based on casting:)
