Kanavu Variyam will inspire the dreamer in us: Arun Chidambaram

Debutant director Arun Chidambaram says his two time Remi Award-winning Tamil drama Kanavu Variyam, which was released on February 24, is a simple film which will inspire the dreamer in all of us.

In 2016, the film had its world premiere at the 49th World Fest Houston International Film Festival where it won two Remi Awards.

“This is a story sans twists and turns. It’s a simple film which will inspire the dreamer in us. It will encourage people to chase their dreams and do what they love. It also has romance and comedy but the core idea will inspire people,” Arun told IANS.

Arun himself plays the lead alongside Jiya Shankar, Illavarasu, and Senthil Kumar in the film.

The story revolves around power cuts and electricity deficit in the villages of Tamil Nadu.

“It’s a film that will make you fall in love with science, and kids will realise that science can be so much fun. Just because it’s an award-winning film it doesn’t mean it will be very slow and is targeted at a section of the audience. It’s a commercial film that’s equally uplifting,” he said.
