Aaranya Kaandam which was released in the year 2010 after major struggles at the censor board boomed at the box office, but the movie was well received by critics and is considered a cult film. Aaranya Kaandam has been the only noir movie made in tamil so far. The movie received two national awards , one for Best Editing to Praveen K.L, one for the director Thiagarajan Kumararaja for best debut movie of a director.
The director was the talk of the town after the movie got released and the movie was analysed and the most talked about among the film students. Five years after the movie got released the director was not on the news for any of his films. Last month when he was contacted he told that he was working on a script for one and a half years , and if things fall in place he might start making the movie right away.
Now the sources close to the director say that the director is ready with his script and has considered Vijay Sethupathi for one of his roles. The crew is considering Malayalam actors like Fahadh Fazil and Nivin Pauly for the other lead role. If things fall in place as planned the director might also be one of the producers of the film, and the movie might go on floors soon. We wish all the best for one of the most talented directors Tamil Industry has ever seen.
