Samuthirakani has returned to direction with his latest venture “Appa” which is produced by himself under his home banner of Naadodigal Productions. The movie hits screens worldwide on Friday, July 1.
The director himself will be seen in a key role along with Thambi Ramaiah and Namo Narayana. “Appa” has Ilaiyaraja’s music, Richard M Nathan’s cinematography, and AL Ramesh’s editing.
The movie tells the story of three fathers and their sons. It is a message-oriented movie, which also takes on private schools, residential schools, private hospitals, etc.
Samuthirakani will be seen as a model father, whose message to his son played by “Kaakha Muttai” Vignesh that there is a life beyond books and studies. He also teaches him about good and bad things in life and gives his kid complete freedom to make choices.
Contradictory to his style, Thambi Ramaiah plays the role of a strict father. He forces his son to achieve the things that he could not in his life. Also, there is Namo Narayanan, who raises his son with lots of fear and wants only to move forward in life without any distraction. How the three children grow in such a scenario forms the crux of the story.
